How many treatment sessions will it take to remove the tattoo?
The number of treatments for clearance of a tattoo depends on the amount and type of ink used and the depth of the ink in the skin. Professional tattoos may require up to 6 to 12 treatments, while amateur tattoos require 3 to 6 treatments. In some cases, complete clearance can not be achieved. It is impossible for any doctor to determine exactly how many treatments it will take for complete removal because the variables are usually unknown, such as the type of ink and how much was used. During your initial consultation, your doctor will be able to estimate how many treatments may be necessary for the clearance of your tattoo.
