There are several factors that will impact how may laser tattoo removal sessions are necessary for the complete elimination of your ink. Each of these sessions will be separated by a recovery period to allow your skin to heal and help prevent scarring.
Because laser energy is being used to heat the skin during tattoo removal, some blistering and scabbing is common. While the most obvious impact of treatment typically only lasts for one to two days, it can take several weeks before the skin is ready for another session. This can make the process of full tattoo removal take six months or longer, depending on factors unique to your skin and tattoo.
Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole utilizes state-of-the-art laser technology to remove tattoos. This technology can help reduce recovery time and quicken final results. However, each person responds differently to treatment, making it impossible to give solid information about recovery without first meeting with you to assess the area you would like treated.
Dr. O’Toole offers free laser tattoo removal consultations. He welcomes an opportunity to meet with you to discuss your needs, explain the process, and provide honest information about what you can expect from laser tattoo removal.
