FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How many treatments will I need?
You’ll need several treatments before you’ll notice a significant difference. The number of treatments you’ll need depends on the amount and type of ink used and how deeply it sits. Keep in mind it takes three-to-six weeks between treatments for your body to absorb the pigment residue.
How do I prepare for a laser tattoo removal treatment?
Prior to a laser tattoo removal treatment, you’ll want to avoid sun exposure for four weeks beforehand. You may be instructed to discontinue taking aspirin and ibuprofen, since they may cause you to bruise after your treatment. Make sure to follow all pre-care instructions your medical professional gives you.
Am I a good candidate for laser tattoo removal?
Laser tattoo removal can remove most tattoos safely and effectively. In general, older tattoos that have darker pigments tend to be easier to remove than newer ones that have fluorescent pigments. Patients who don’t smoke and follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen tend to achieve the best results.
