Skin Renewal of Tulsa is able to help clients who want to have tattoos removed with laser therapy. The laser used by our machine causes an intense photomechanical response. It targets the pigments of the tattoo and fragments them so they can be absorbed by your body. The tissue surrounding the treatment area is left unharmed. This FAQ is designed to help you understand the cutting-edge therapy. If you have additional questions about tattoo removal in Tulsa, we welcome you to contact our office and book a consultation.
How Many Treatments Does It Take to Remove a Tattoo?
The number of treatments you’ll need depends on many factors. The location of your tattoo and its size, as well as the color of the ink, all determine how many sessions will be needed. Every person and tattoo is unique, so some patients require only a few treatments, while others need more. We will discuss your particular needs during your consultation.
What is the Waiting Period Between Treatments?
Recovery time between treatments varies from patient to patient. In general, we recommend sessions are spread out between six to eight weeks. That time allows your body to heal and work on removing the ink particles that were fragmented during the previous treatment.
Will My Tattoo Be Completely Removed?
In most cases, with tattoo removal in Tulsa, we are able to completely remove a patient’s tattoo. However, in some cases, there is a very small amount of pigment left on the skin. It all depends on the situation. Sometimes when you want to cover an existing tattoo with a new tattoo, your tattoo artist will recommend lightening the old tattoo. Doing so helps to ensure maximum coverage and adequate final results. In such cases, fewer treatments will be needed.
