Sometimes, you make the decision to get a tattoo and think that you’re going to like having the design on your body months or years later. Fortunately, laser tattoo removal allows you to leave your ink in the past. The process takes a series of treatment sessions, but you’ll slowly begin to see that the image disappears in a short time.
The laser used during the removal process will slowly break up the pigments in the tattoo. This is why it can take more than one sitting for it to be completely removed. Darker colors, such as black, are often easier to remove as they tend to absorb more of the wavelengths that are given off by the laser. The color of the pigment can dictate the type of laser that’s used, which is another reason as to why it can take multiple treatment sessions for the process to be complete.
It’s best to meet with someone who understands the laser tattoo removal process before you make a decision to have it done. The age of the tattoo, the number of colors that are in the design, and the size of the tattoo are factors to consider when looking at how long it could take for it to be removed. Another factor to consider as to how long it will take to remove your tattoo is your skin tone.
When you go to your first laser tattoo removal appointment, the professional who will remove your tattoo can discuss the details of what will take place. Once the laser is prepared, the technician gently passes it over the tattoo. You may notice that your tattoo will have a lighter appearance after your first visit. However, you’re going to need to come back in order for it to completely go away.
