How many treatments are needed to remove a tattoo?

The number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient. During a free consultation, we can evaluate your tattoo to determine the estimated number of sessions expected to achieve your desired result. For complete removal, one person may only need 4 sessions, while another may need 8. The average amount typically expected is 5-12 sessions. To lighten a tattoo before it gets recovered typically takes 1-3 sessions. This could be more depending on the detail within the tattoo.

How do you determine the price of my tattoo removal session when I come in the office?

Our prices are determined by the size, color, fill and complexity of your tattoo. We offer free consultations to give you an exact price. There are discounted packages available when you purchase multiple sessions.
