WHAT DETERMINES THE SUCCESS OF LASER TATTOO REMOVAL?

A number of factors come in to play when determining how successful a laser tattoo removal procedure will be. These include skin type, location of tattoo, colors involved, quality and quantity of ink, the age of the tattoo, the patient's own immune system. Multiple treatments are always needed to remove a tattoo and a clinic with experience can usually give you an accurate number of treatments you'll need when you get an initial consultation.

Does laser tattoo removal work better on certain skin types then others? Are you still able to remove tattoo's from darker pigmented skin types?

Laser tattoo removal can be done on all skin types but the chance of adverse side effects goes up in darker skin types.
