Let’s get to know a bit more about this tattoo removal process and all the details that you should know in and around it.
How does the laser tattoo removal work?
The laser beam is passed through the skin where you have got the tattoo done. It passes through your skin and it targets the ink particles under the skin and it breaks it down into small pieces that could be carried away by the immune system of your body.
The dark coloured ink of the tattoo like the green or black would be comparatively easier to the light-coloured ink, though one might think it to be the other way around.
How long does it take?
Now, on to the most important question, how long does it take for a complete tattoo removal? It might usually take 6 to 8 sessions for removing a tattoo completely. How far away in time should you schedule each of the sessions does not have a standard answer. It depends on the following factors:
- The colour of your skin
- The rate at which your skin heals
- The pace where your tattoo to be removed lays. The farther away it is from your heart, the slower will be the healing. The reason is because better the blood flow, faster the wound heals.
- The complexity, design and the age of the tattoo itself.

However, end of the day, it is all worth the effort as you can completely remove the tattoo that you no longer want.
