How many sessions does it take to completely remove a tattoo?
Complete laser tattoo removal requires multiple treatment sessions, typically spaced at least eight weeks apart. During each session, some but not all tattoo pigment particles are fragmented and the body removes the fragments over a period of weeks. The amount of sessions needed to remove a tattoo varies greatly on the type of tattoo, the type of ink, the location on the body, and the individual person. Many clinics will claim to be able to get your tattoo out in one session. At this point and time, there is no laser powerful enough to get a professional tattoo out in one session regardless of what type of session or method it is.
The bottom line – hope your tattoo comes out in five sessions but expect up to fifteen so you won’t be disappointed when you are the rare person it takes that long to get out.
