Professional tattoos can require 6 to 12 treatments. Tattoo removal is an advanced procedure because tattoo ink needs to be heated at very high temperatures to shatter, yet high temperatures usually cause skin to scar.

Over time, laser tattoo removal has become popular because it’s nowhere near as uncomfortable as some of the other options.
Laser tattoo removal has advanced dramatically in recent years. When performed by a skilled professional, tattoo removal can be a safe and effective medical procedure. Tattoo removal lasers, also called Q-switch lasers or ultra-short pulse lasers, are extremely hot, operate in a very narrow frequency, and are very, very fast. On the average, professional tattoos require 5-6 treatments while amateur tattoos require 2-4 treatments spaced 4-8 weeks apart.
