Laser Tattoo Removal, How many sessions exactly?

Posted on March 4, 2012 at 4:15 AM




At Present, Skin Wellness has performed one thousand laser tattoo removal cases and counting.



Everytime we meet a new client who wants a tattoo removed, an essential question always include the ' number of sessions’. A very basic question, but needs several considerations and an intelligent yet easy to understand explanation. Getting inked is so easy but removing it involves a cascade of processes , time and cost play an important factor.


A group of American dermatologists made this descriptive study which can predict the number of sessions needed to remove the ink. Big thanks to them. This made long discussions , guided and easy to comprehend.


The Kirby Desai Scale is a very good presentation of how Q Switched Nd Yag works to remove a tattoo, and how well and how fast it works. Considerations include : the skin type, the anatomy, the intensity of ink, history of scarring, colors of ink and the quality or design of the tattoo.


Actual clinical procedure entails detailed passes of the laser, the right settings and power, the pain threshold of the patient. Pain with anesthesia cream is bearable. Taking pain reliever tablets before the procedure helps. Laser shots are described as having small , warm needles and rubber band snaps on the skin. Bony areas are more sensitive than the muscular parts.


A good immune system plays a major role to make laser tattoo removal more efficient.


Based from actual results of Skin Wellness Clinic, an eyebrow tattoo can be erased in 3 to 5 sessions, a 10 year old amateur tattoo is hard to decipher after 5 sessions , an intricate design with thin shadow tattoo in 5 to 8 sessions, but embossed colored very graphic ones can take 10 sessions or more.


We have encountered tattoos which have had cover up made by tattoo artists and left devastating keloids , this will make the laser tattoo removal more complicated and less effective. Cover ups make the darker ink sink into the deeper layers of the skin. Q Switched NdYag will not leave any scarring, but it cannot reverse the scars made by tattoo cover ups.


Let me share with you the Kirby Desai Scale, the BEST AND ONLY predictor of how many sessions will be needed to totally removal a tattoo using the Q Switched Nd Yag Laser.


Email us a photo of your tattoo with the dimensions in inches, and we will help you get your Kirby Desai Scale and the number of sessions needed.


And think twice before having a tattoo cover up.

"THINK BEFORE YOU INK" ... but we will help you get rid of it anyway.

For inquiries please email us a photo of your tattoo with a ruler beside it and send it to [email protected] We keep emails and photos private.

We have a newly acquired Q Switched Ndyag that delivers stronger pulses, faster results.
