The number of sessions required to remove a tattoo depends upon a number of factors including size, colour and type. This would be assessed during an initial consultation and examination at the medical centre, where treatment would be planned and the cost determined. At each treatment the specialist traces over the tattoo with a laser. An initial 'whitening' above the pigment is the first sign of a good treatment reaction. This fades slowly over a few days as the pigment colour begins to reappear but lighter than before. Treatments are normally spaced at eight to twelve week intervals to allow the body to remove as much pigment as possible and the tattoo continues to fade over the course of the several treatments.
