How Many Treatments Will I Need?

One of the most common areas of concern for people considering laser tattoo removal is the logistics. Specifically, most clients want to know how many treatments they’ll need in order to remove their tattoos, and how long it will all take. The answers to these questions depend on a variety of factors, including the size of the tattoo, ink colors, the location of the tattoo, and even whether or not the client uses tobacco.

However, we can break it down into an approximate range for our clients:

  • 3-5 sessions on the low end and 12-15 on the higher end. You can expect anywhere from 3 to 15 laser tattoo removal sessions before your ink is completely removed. While the amount of sessions may depend on some variables that are out of your control, you can expect fewer sessions if you find a company with high-end laser tattoo removal technology, such as the Quanta Q-Plus C used at New Wave Laser Tattoo Removal.

  • 4-8 weeks between sessions. The wait time between laser tattoo removal sessions varies from person to person. However, proper aftercare techniques (such as staying properly hydrated, exercising regularly, and avoiding toxins) can help minimize this window and expedite the process. For clients with more sensitive skin types, this window will be longer.

The best thing you can do? Control what you can. While certain determining factors such as ink color and tattoo size may be out of your control, you can speed up the laser tattoo removal process as much as possible by making smart choices in the variables you can control. First, find a laser tattoo removal company that uses the latest in multi-laser technology. Next, practice healthy habits and aftercare techniques in order to shorten the window between treatments.

It’s impossible to give a definitive answer to these questions, since it varies from client to client. Scheduling a free consultation is the best way to find answers to your questions!
