Though the process of tattoo removal is relatively simple, answering the question of exactly how long it will take is more complicated. There are actually several factors that go into determining how many treatments will be required before a tattoo is no longer visible.
The size of the tattoo plays a large part. Though the size may not factor into the number of treatments that are necessary, it will factor into how long each individual treatment lasts. Full sleeves and total back tattoos will obviously take much longer than a small tattoo. Your removal expert will discuss time frame with you during your consultation and will let you know how much time to set aside for each treatment.
The colors that are used will also play a role. Black and red are two colors that respond well to treatment. Other colors such as orange, green, and brown are more resistant to treatment. If you have a basic black tattoo, the process should be relatively fast. If your tattoo has multiple colors, the process will take longer.
The number of tattoos that you need removed will also set the time frame. All three of these factors will be important. However, do not fear that this will be an extremely length process, as in most cases removal does not take a long time. New York laser tattoo removal works to remove the tattoo as quickly as possible.
