The Tattoo Removal Process
If you are considering laser tattoo removal, you will first meet with a dermatological surgeon for a consultation to discuss your cosmetic goals. You will also discuss your medical history, including previous surgeries, present and past health problems, and more. Be ready to go over all of your medical history.
Each tattoo is unique and requires a different number of treatment sessions. While many patients want to know the exact number of treatments they will need, this is difficult to predict. The number of sessions required depends on a variety of factors, including tattoo size, color, location, age of the tattoo and amount of ink in the skin. Treatment can be as little as 5 to 10 sessions but it can also take up to 20 sessions.
