The Evaluation

Before undergoing laser tattoo removal, an evaluation appointment is needed to examine your skin type and tattoo, as both of these factors play an important role in the efficacy of treatment.

Some important facts to consider about tattoo type:

  • Dark colored inks like black are the easiest to remove. Lighter inks such as red, blue, green, and yellow are the most difficult
  • Older tattoos respond better to laser removal than new ones
  • Different areas of the body also respond differently to laser removal

Some important factors to consider about skin type:

  • Skin type is evaluated on a scale of I (the fairest) to VI (the darkest brown). The higher you are on the scale, the darker your skin color and the more difficult tattoo removal will be
  • More treatments are generally needed on darker skin colors
  • Tanning can impede laser tattoo removal because of the redistribution of melanin

Tattoo colors and types

Tattoos come in a variety of colors and types, which can impact the success of laser removal treatment. Many laser removal technologies are unable to effectively target all of the colors. PicoSure technology is extremely high-powered, allowing it to shatter a full spectrum of ink colors underneath the skin so the body can eliminate them naturally.

How laser tattoo removal works

The laser tattoo removal process

After an evaluation, our team at Dermatology & Cosmetic Laser Center will create a customized treatment plan. The amount of sessions necessary depends on the skin type, color, and size of the tattoo. A consultation is the only way to know how many treatments will be required.

Effective tattoo removal treatment generally requires several treatments spaced about one and a half to two months apart. The length of each treatment session depends on the size of the tattoo. Smaller tattoos may only take ten minutes, while larger tattoos with multiple ink colors can take much more time.

Many individuals describe the sensation of the laser treatment like a rubber band snapping against the skin. You may feel some discomfort, but it should not be as painful as the initial tattoo.

Results from laser tattoo removal

Every patient responds differently to laser tattoo removal. Some may notice visible results after a single treatment, while others may need a few sessions before achieving results. It’s important to follow the post-treatment care instructions that are provided to ensure the treatment is effective and that your skin heals properly. This means limiting exercise and other physical activity for up to 48 hours and limiting sun exposure.
