Asking the question, “How many laser treatments does it take to remove a tattoo?” is one of those frustrating questions that doesn’t have a definitive answer. There are numerous factors that influence the number of treatments it takes to remove a tattoo, which are outlined below. The danger lies in being quoted a cheap price per session, without a guarantee of the total number of sessions. You could end up paying for 15+ sessions when in fact you could have only paid for 10 or less.
Therefore, the real question to ask is, “how much will it cost to remove my tattoo?” At Detail Tattoo Removal, Sydney’s Laser Tattoo Removal Specialists, we guarantee that the maximum number of sessions you will pay for is 10, any colour, any size tattoo.
Factors That Influence Tattoo Removal
Laser operator experience
Simply using the standard parameters on a laser device is not going to minimise the number of sessions required. Our expert clinicians at Detail Tattoo Removal effectively minimise the number of sessions required as they understand skin response and device parameters to achieve the Maximum Effective Threshold to ensure each treatment has results.
Even when using the same laser device, an experienced operator can achieve much faster clearance and better results as they have the knowledge and expertise to use the highest appropriate settings whilst maintaining skin integrity. Inexperienced operators trying to achieve faster clearance will often cause skin damage, burns and scarring as they don’t understand skin response.
Our clinicians at Detail Tattoo Removal are all qualified skin therapists and Laser Safety Officer Certified. Detail clinicians undergo extensive expert training before commencing on patients as well as ongoing clinical training with industry expert medical practitioners.
Pico systems are now making traditional Q-switched lasers obsolete. The PicoWay picosecond laser system is the gold standard for tattoo removal as it is:
- the world’s fastest picosecond laser
- safe to use on all skin types, even darker skin types
- treats all tattoo colours
- removes tattoos faster with only 2 to 4 weeks between treatments
Once the laser has shattered the tattoo ink, it’s then up to your immune system to clear the ink. If your immune system is sluggish, if you are unwell, or if you don’t look after yourself, it will take longer to clear the tattoo pigment.
Colour, location and size of tattoo
A black tattoo on your torso will typically need fewer sessions than the same size multi-coloured tattoo on your ankle. Darker inks are easier to clear than lighter, coloured inks. The amount of ink that your system needs to process and the location on your body will also impact the number of sessions.
