During each tattoo removal session, the laser targets the pigments in the tattoo ink, breaking them down into smaller particles. These particles are then naturally eliminated by the body's immune system over time. The duration between sessions is typically 6 to 8 weeks to allow the body enough time to heal and eliminate the broken-down pigments.
It's important to note that the number of sessions required for complete tattoo removal can vary depending on several factors.
These factors include:
- the size and complexity of the tattoo,
- the colors used in the tattoo,
- the depth of the ink in the skin,
- the individual's skin type,
- and response to the treatment.

When contacting our salon with a desire to remove a tattoo, clients wonder how many removal sessions are needed. During the consultation, the specialist will warn you that it is impossible to remove the tattoo from the skin in one session. The laser method is indeed the most effective tattoo removal method, however, for a high-quality result, several procedures are needed. The specialist will be able to tell you the exact number of sessions only after the first procedure since the following factors are taken into account:
• the structure of the dermis;
• pigment colour;
• age of the image;
• the scale of the tattoo to be removed;
• the influence of biological processes in the body;
• adherence to recommendations.
After the first pigment removal procedure, the image on the body will become much lighter, but after a while it may darken. Such a reaction occurs precisely because of biological processes in the human body. Each client is a special case, therefore, the number of sessions is different for each. Typically, complete removal of pigment from the skin occurs after 2 to 8 sessions.
