Whether you are someone who is researching laser tattoo removal, working up the nerve to schedule your first appointment or someone who is currently getting a tattoo removed, it is always helpful to remember that there is an end in sight. One day your tattoo will be a distant memory. One question that sometimes comes up is how do you know when to stop your laser tattoo removal appointments? Here we discuss three scenarios that might mean you are finished removing your tattoo!
- Complete removal – This is the best-case scenario. You finish your laser tattoo removal appointments and all the ink pigment is gone from your skin. Complete removal with laser treatment is definitely possible, but there are some factors than can complicate this result. Sometimes the skin under the tattoo is damaged and the outline or shadow of the tattoo remains visible.
- Lightened for a cover-up – In this scenario, laser tattoo removal is lightening the existing tattoo to allow for a cover-up tattoo. Laser tattoo removal with the goal of lightening usually takes fewer sessions than complete removal and it is usually the tattoo artist that is doing the cover-up that determines when to stop with the treatments.
- Partial removal – Sometimes all of the ink pigment is not removed, but the tattoo is lightened up enough that it isn’t bothersome to you anymore. The tattoo may still be noticeable, but can easily be covered up or hidden.
When you are finished with your laser tattoo removal appointments really depends on what your goals are for laser tattoo removal.
