When you get yourself inked, you love it at that time. But you may want to get rid of the same tattoo which you had got done with tremendous zest, at some point in our life. Laser tattoo fading is the process of removing tattoos and other forms of body ink by using lasers, so that they can be absorbed naturally by the skin.
All types of tattoos can be removed using laser. This will include tattoos done by professionals and accidental tattoos that are caused by bruising and injury of the skin. Colored tattoos are also removed, although yellow or green tattoos pose a greater challenge when it comes to removal.
Generally, dark (black and blue) and red inks resolve the best. Purple and orange also fade usually. Yellow and green inks are the most difficult to remove and hence further treatments may be required to produce significant fading.
Professional tattoos typically require 6-10 sessions, whereas amateur ones need 4-5 sessions, all spaced at an interval of 6-8 weeks. The factors that determine the number of treatments required to successfully complete these procedure depend on the size and depth of the tattoo and also the type of tattoo itself.
Multiple sessions are required in colorful tattoos. There may be a faint image still persisting even after multiple treatments depending on size, color, number of sessions needed etc.
The cost of tattoo removal laser treatment depends completely on the size of the tattoo and the number of sittings which are required to ensure thorough removal of all the tattooing ink. However, it would be wise to consider other factors apart from just treatment costs. If you choose a clinic just because it is the cheapest, you run the risk of health problems and inferior results.
