5 Key Factors in the Laser Tattoo Removal Process

There are a variety of reasons why our clients come to New Wave for laser tattoo removal in Bucks County. Sometimes a tattoo that seemed like a good idea at a

young age now looks immature or silly from the perspective of an adult. People choose new career paths where tattoos may be considered unprofessional.

Regardless of the motivation behind seeking out Bucks County laser tattoo removal, there are a few common factors that may influence your personal experience with the process:

  1. Ink Color – Tattoos composed of black or red inks are most responsive to laser and easiest to remove. Green and blue inks are a bit more stubborn, but can still be removed successfully. Yellow ink does not respond as well to laser, but can be treated and will continue to exfoliate on its own.The type of tattoo laser removal technology being used also influences how easy it may be to remove colored inks. At New Wave, our Quanta Q-Plus C laser is one of the most powerful and versatile laser removal devices on the market, capable of targeting inks of all colors.

  2. Age of Tattoo – For older tattoos, Mother Nature has a way of easing the removal process as pigments have often faded over the years. Newer tattoos have fresher ink pigments and may require more treatments for full removal.

  3. Size of Tattoo – Naturally, larger tattoos require more time and treatments compared to smaller ones. Being selective in choosing a laser tattoo removal service with premium technology can help raise the odds for a successful removal of large-scale tattoos.

  4. Smoking – Believe it or not, smokers struggle more with the tattoo removal process compared to their non-smoking counterparts. A 2010 study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association found that after 10 sessions, smokers had a 70% lower rate of removal compared to non-smokers.

  5. Amount of Ink – Generally, large-scale, professionally done tattoos contain much more ink compared to amateur tattoos. So the stick-and-poke you gave yourself at your friend’s 16th birthday party will come out much easier than a sleeve of complex designs from a premium-quality shop.

Unfortunately, it’s impossible to go back in time and change any of these factors in order to make the laser tattoo removal process any easier. However, one area you do have control over is the quality of the laser tattoo removal service you choose. Opting for a company that uses the most current and efficient laser tattoo removal technology will ensure your removal is as seamless and painless as possible.
