This is just an estimate. The actual time required to remove tattoos depends on many factors. Most people find that tattoos can be removed in 6-10 sessions.
Let’s take a look at some factors that could affect the time it takes to remove your tattoo.
PicoSure Tattoo removal is used to remove ink particles that have been embedded within the skin’s layers. To accomplish this, the laser must target ink particles, not the skin. This is done by the laser focusing on the colours of the tattoo. It is easier to do this when there is more contrast between the ink colour and the skin.
This means that tattoos can be easily removed if your skin is lighter. It is possible to remove tattoos from darker skin tones. However, this takes a little longer.
It also has an impact on how fast you can remove your tattoo. The tattoo will be more effective and quicker to remove if it is closer to your heart. The easiest areas to get rid of tattoos are those with high lymph node counts, such as the neck, chest, upper back, arms, and face. The tattoo will be easier to remove if it is lower on the body.
Types of Ink
Tattoo artists often mix their inks to achieve the best pigment. There are many types of inks that can host different compounds. Certain compounds are more sensitive to laser removal than others. This can affect the speed at which tattoos are removed.
The speed and effectiveness of your laser removal will depend on how well you take care of your tattoo. Your skin is constantly being punctured when you get a tattoo. Scar tissue can form if you don’t take care of your tattoo. Scar tissue can make it more difficult to remove a tattoo and may cause it to take longer.
Age of tattoo
Tattoos can become progressively worse and more deeply embedded in the skin over time. It takes less time to remove an old, faded tattoo than it does to remove a newer one.
The ink is applied to different layers of the skin when you get a tattoo. Professional tattoos tend to have ink deposited deeper within the skin. This makes your tattoo stand out more, but it also means that it will take longer to remove than a stick and poke or any other amateur tattoo.
Your tattoo’s size is a major factor in the time it takes to get completely removed. The faster your tattoo will be removed, the bigger it is.
It makes sense that ink of lighter colour would be easier to remove than the ink of darker hues. This is not true. Laser removal works best when there’s a clear contrast between the ink and the skin. Dark ink on lighter skin is easiest to remove. It is harder to get rid of light-coloured inks like yellows, greens, and blues. It was once nearly impossible to get rid of, but lasers have made it easier.
