Laser tattoo removal is different for each client because every client and their tattoo is unique. Because of this, it is impossible to predict the exact number of treatments that a given tattoo will need to be completely removed. We do understand that this is a somewhat frustrating answer (and we wish we had a crystal ball too!), but what we can do, apart from using the most efficient laser tattoo removal technology, is set clear expectations.
Based on our experience, most professional tattoos take around 6 to 12 sessions to completely remove, sometimes more, sometimes less. The reason that there is a range is that there are a lot of factors to take into consideration.
The number of sessions needed to remove a tattoo depends on the following factors:
- Fitzpatrick skin type
- Tattoo layering (if the tattoo is a cover-up)
- Location on the body
- Ink colors
- Amount of ink applied (vividness of tattoo, if it was applied with a tattoo gun or homemade)
- The type of ink applied
- Pre-existing scarring from the tattoo process
- Immune system function
- Tobacco use (smokers experience slower fading)
- Overall health and fitness
- Technology used (and how often it is maintained)
We understand that once you start the process you want your tattoo removed as quickly as possible. Our interests are aligned because the faster our clients see fading, the more satisfied they will be (most of our clients are recommended by other clients). Each time you visit our clinic, we treat your tattoo with as much energy as is safe for your skin.
Technology plays an important role in the rate of removal and the Astanza Trinity is the most powerful multi-wavelength laser system on the market — no other system can match its high peak power across all three wavelengths. We are able to treat any color of ink and any color of skin, safely and effectively.
We are the only clinic in Austin or San Antonio that has this technology so we’re going to be able to remove your tattoo faster than anywhere else, and you’ll also end up paying for fewer sessions by coming to Eraser Clinic.
