They are treated with laser and intense pulsed light, which are state-of-the-art devices for slowly and progressively removing the pigment and color of tattoos.
IPL: for dark tattoos without excessive pigment saturation.
The number of sessions depends on the phototype and skin biotype. Paradoxically, the darker the color, the fewer sessions, and the lighter the pigment, the more sessions are required, as the equipment works differently.
Likewise, the most commonly used lasers are Nd:YAG and Ruby lasers, which are ablative lasers with better and more guaranteed results.
The sessions vary based on color, depth, and duration of the tattoo.
The equipment and number of sessions will correspond to the color of the tattoo.
· Black and blue: 2 – 4 sessions
· Brown and red: 3 – 5 sessions
· Blue and green: require 2 different types of lasers, 4 – 8 sessions
· Light colors: sessions to be determined
· Other colors: yellow, pink – difficult; white – impossible
Price depends on size, depth, treated area, color, and number of sessions.
