Getting a tattoo done is a big decision. It requires a lot of thinking, weighing pros and cons. And making sure that you will be able to keep it forever. Unfortunately, life is full of surprises. And you might get into a situation where you need to remove a tattoo. Now, you are considering laser tattoo removal. Thus, you must have lots of questions about the procedure. Get cosy because here are a few things to know about laser hair removal.
1. Can I remove a tattoo in one laser session?
Unfortunately, you can’t. Just as any laser treatment tattoo removal requires patience and consistency. Many factors can affect the results of laser tattoo removal: your skin tone, the ink density and color, the size of the tattoo, etc. The age of the tattoo will also help determine how many sessions you need, as older tattoo face with age and are easier to remove. The process of removing a tattoo can take 3 to 10 sessions. If you are removing a tattoo that is over another one, it may take longer.
Does the color of my tattoo matter?
Yes, it actually does. The darker your tattoo is, the easier it is to remove. The perfect candidate for laser tattoo removal is a black tattoo on lighter skin tones. Colors such as green and blue are also easier to remove, although lighter colors are trickier. Some pigments used in ink are also harder to break. However, at Infinity Laser Spa we use bi-wavelengths machines which allow us to target the variety of colors.
Can I remove just a part of my tattoo?
Yes, you can decide what you wish to remove: the whole tattoo or just a fraction. A laser tattoo removal procedure is almost as crafty as an actual tattoo application. Each treatment will be curated to fit the patients, skin tone, tattoo age and color, etc. Make sure you discuss everything with your technician beforehand. At Infinity Laser Spa, we offer a free consultation so that we can offer a personalized quote.
Is laser tattoo removal expensive?
One thing you need to know about laser tattoo removal is that it is indeed expensive. The price can easily exceed the price of a tattoo aplication. Laser is in essence a bit pricey and removing a tattoo is a procedure that takes quite some time. Infinity Laser Spa offers a free consultation prior to any decisions being made so that clients can have an idea of what needs to be done, how long the treatment will take, etc; and give apersonalized quote.
How do I know if my tattoo removal professional is actually good?
Finding a good laser tattoo removal professional requires some research. Read review on different review websites, ask friends or friends of friends if they know of someone or have had a tattoo removed, research websites and compare. You want to find the professional best able to cater to your needs, which is why research and a consultation are so important.
