How Long To Wait Between Laser Tattoo Removal Treatments?

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

The laser treatment itself breaks up the ink particles beneath the skin. During the time allotted between treatments, the body’s natural immune system flushes away those particles, eliminating the tattoo from the skin.

The body never stops flushing away the tattoo ink and even does so naturally over time (i.e. decades). However, the shattering of ink particles during laser tattoo removal encourages and expedites the flushing away process.

Ideally, the waiting time of about six to eight weeks between treatments will allow for complete healing. If the tattooed area is still scabbed or visibly healing from the last laser treatment, it is beneficial to wait even longer.
