More than half of all individuals that have a tattoo will at sometime, want it removed! In principle, the laser can remove all kind of tattoos and since all tattoos are not the same in terms of colour, depth of ink deposition as well as their chemical composition some may respond differently. Black, red, dark orange and dark blue tattoos will typically respond better to treatment with a laser. However brown, purple, green, light orange, neon and light blue colours are harder to remove and will inevitably require more sessions. 

It is difficult to accurately calculate just how many sessions would be required to remove an individual tattoo and as already outlined, would be dependant on the type of skin, colour of ink and depth of colour. In some cases however, our clients have seen an obvious reduction after just the first treatment. But to remove a tattoo would typically require between 4 to 8 treatments with intervals of around six weeks between treatments. More sessions may be necessary for complete removal.

The level of pain felt will obviously depend on the type of tattoo and the amount of treatment required during a particular session and of course your own individual pain threshold! Some of our clients have described the pain as no more than an uncomfortable feeling, where as others have described the pain as similar to an elastic band being flicked against their skin. The truth is that you will not know how painful, or not, the treatment is unless you try it! 

The ND YAG laser does not heat the surrounding skin significantly and the risk of scarring is much reduced and although there is a small risk of scarring with any laser, in most cases, scarring is not a significant risk for tattoo removal with the ND YAG laser.
