Tattoo removal procedure is done almost in the same manner as the birthmark removal using Q-switched Nd:YAG laser. However, the results might vary depending upon the color of the ink used in the tattoo. Red inks and darker colors such as blue, black, and green typically respond very well to laser treatment. Other colors, such as yellow, may be more difficult to remove, although improvement will be noticeable. In most cases, tattoos can be faded by 95% or more. The number of treatments needed for laser tattoo removal will depend on the concentration, depth, and type of tattoo ink. On average, most professional tattoos can be removed in a series of 6 to 8 treatments, with a group of 6 weeks apart, while amateur tattoos usually require 3 to 4 treatments. Treatment for birthmark removal may require a combination of different lasers to achieve the best results. This is an outpatient procedure and can be done in a short period of time. Normal activities can be resumed immediately after the treatment. For your concerns and queries feel free to get in touch with us.
