Laser tattoo removal techniques can eliminate your tattoo with minimal side effects. The laser removes tattoos by breaking up the pigment into smaller pieces, which is then removed by the body over the following few weeks.
This process is repeated every eight weeks until the tattoo has been completely removed. Treatment can commence eight weeks after first getting your tattoo done.
Tattoos made by hand without a gun are easier to remove, and often come out within three treatments.
Professional tattoos made with a tattoo gun may take many more treatments – 14 to 20 are common.
Black and dark blue are the easiest colours to remove, other colours can take twice as long, white cannot be removed.
