Can tattoos be completely removed in 1 session?

What's the fastest way to get tattoos removed? Can tattoos be completely removed in one session? I'm interested in having laser tattoo removal treatment, but I’m reluctant to go for multiple sessions.

 

Hi Raelee, 

I’m afraid that it would not be possible unless your tattoo has very little ink to begin with. Most tattoos usually require 3 to 12 sessions depending on the laser used and the person using it.

 Some factors that will affect how quickly your tattoo clears include:

  • Your body’s immune system (ability to breakdown the ink and repair itself)
  • Body placement of your tattoo
  • Type of ink colors
  • Amount of ink used
  • Is it over an existing scar or a pre-existing tattoo?
  • Whether or not you smoke

 

Technology definitely plays an important role in the rate of complete removal. A tattoo removal laser has the ability to transmit powerful laser pulses, which breaks down the ink particles. However, not all laser machines in the market are able to deliver the same results largely due to the power of the lasers used as well as the experience of the operators.

I personally prefer to use the PicoWay laser as the quickest way to remove tattoos. The picosecond technology is able to deliver small bursts of laser energy that penetrates deep into the skin in picoseconds (one trillionth of a second).

This ensures that there is minimal damage to the area outside of the treatment zone. This also means that more pigment is burned up with each laser application and the pigments are broken up into much smaller fragments when compare to the Q-switched lasers.

You will typically only see changes after you have at least a few sessions done. My PicoWay does significantly reduce the required number of sessions.
