Tattoos come in different shapes, sizes and colors. Tattoos can be classified into different types and the number of laser treatments it takes to remove the tattoo can therefore vary.
Professionally-done tattoos have high density of ink, are injected deeper into the skin and usually have multiple colors involved. These tattoos usually require the most number of sessions, anywhere between 6-15 sessions. It is important to know and understand that pink, yellow or lighter colors are generally much harder to remove, if not impossible.
Amateur Tattoos are easier to remove because the amount of ink injected is much less and the ink is not so deep. Generally speaking, it can take anywhere between 2-6 treatments to remove these amateur tattoos.
Permanent makeup tattoos such as those done on the lips or eyebrows usually have less ink than professional tattoos. These types of tattoos can take anywhere between 1-3 treatment depending on the density of the ink and the type of ink used.
Traumatic tattoos can occur from foreign particles/debris is embedded into the skin after trauma such as a bicycle or motorcycle accident when the skin is damaged. It is impossible to predict how many laser tattoo sessions it may take to remove such a tattoo. It may be impossible to get rid of traumatic tattoos, so be sure to have reasonable expectations.
And finally, medicinal tattoos are used in medicine to mark sites on the body where, among other things, radiation treatment will be utilized. Medicinal tattoos usually don't have much ink in them and take on average 1-2 laser treatments to remove.
