Do you have a tattoo that you can’t wait to get rid of? Laser tattoo removal is a great solution. One of the most common questions asked by people enquirer about laser tattoo removal is – How many tattoo removal treatments until I see results.
How laser tattoo removal works
The laser emits high intensity light that targets the tattoo ink particles. The ink particles absorb the light energy, which breaks them down into smaller fragments that are later removed by the body’s immune system. Each tattoo treatment breaks down more of the ink, so the tattoo gradually fades from view.
How many tattoo removal treatments until you see results
Most patients start to notice some fading of their tattoo about 4 weeks after the first treatment, but it sometimes takes longer to see changes.It generally requires 5-10 sessions spaced 6-8 weeks apart to get maximum results.
Patients should be aware that the time it takes to see results is influenced by factors such as the age of the tattoo, skin type, and tattooink colors.
Older tattoos may take fewer treatments because the body would have already started to naturally break down the ink. In addition, certain colors such as are black and blue are easier to remove, while colors such as red and yellow are more challenging.
Patients considering laser tattoo removal generally want fast results, but it’s essential to have realistic expectations about the procedure, because multiple treatments are needed.
