The UltraLight-Q laser system contains specific technical advantages for removing a wide variety of tattoos. These range from: professional to homemade or amateur, as well as traumatic and surgical tattoos.
How many treatments does tattoo removal take?
Not all body art is created alike; many factors are involved that determine the number of treatments needed, such as:
- How long the tattoo has been in the skin. Newer tattoos are a little more resistant while older tattoos are easier to remove.
- The depth of the ink in the skin.
- The type of ink in the skin. There are many different types of pigment that could have been used to create the tattoo.
- Was the tattoo created by a professional artist or an amateur?
Usually professional tattoos will need 6-8 treatments, while amateur tattoos take about 4-5 treatments. The sessions will be spaced 6-8 weeks apart, allowing the body’s immune system to naturally remove the pigment fragments.
