We know that every tattoo removal is different, just as every tattoo is different, so we strive to keep you and your interests at the center of every step of our process. During your free consultation, we learn about you and your tattoo. First, we take a brief, directed, confidential medical history from you. We focus on skin problems and any issues that affect your immune system. While tattoo removal is a fairly non-invasive procedure, we do want to keep your safety as our number-one priority at all times.
Next, we evaluate your tattoo. Its size, location, color, density and skin type are some of variables we measure. At the conclusion of your consultation, we estimate how many sessions will be necessary to accomplish your goal. Every tattoo is going to have different dimensions, combinations of colors, and removal needs, and so our goal is to get as thorough an understanding as possible of it to make sure that the removal process goes smoothly and ends with successful results.
Amateur tattoos can sometimes be removed in a few sessions, while multi-color, professional tattoos may take more than 10 sessions. Lightening tattoos for a cover-up can usually be accomplished in 3-4 sessions. The typical session only takes 2-10 minutes. We strive to make sure that all of our clients are satisfied with the end results of their tattoo removal, whether that be simply fading a tattoo for an eventual cover-up, or fully removing a tattoo. We recommend to all of our clients to be flexible with the time-table of having their tattoo removal process fully completed. All tattoos are different, and so there is no standard metric for how long it will take for a tattoo to be fully faded or removed.
