How many treatments does it take to fade a tattoo?

Posted July 27, 2008 under Tattoo Removal - No comments

About how many visits will it take to remove a tattoo that is 7X4 inches, only 2 colors. black and red?

Dr. Sinclair's Response

There is no way to tell how many treatments it will take to fade a tattoo. We use an extremely powerful Q-Switched YAG laser. Each pulse of light from this laser will help shatter the molecules of dye that created that tattoo. Since we don't know how much dye was used to create the tattoo, we can't tell how many treatments it will take. 6-12 treatments is average.
