How far apart should each laser tattoo removal session be?

Doctor's Answers (1)

Your skin needs time to heal. Attempting to remove a tattoo whilst it is still healing only increases your chance of scarring.

Minimally, I would advise four to six weeks between each laser treatment as stacking the treatments too closely together can cause damage instead. You might need to wait a little longer if you are a smoker as well.
