If the tattoo looks healed can I come in before six weeks?

- FAQ Laser Tattoo Removal

It takes four weeks for the body to begin breaking down the ink and even though the tattoo may appear healed, it is not. The laser breaks the ink down into smaller particles so it can be absorbed and cleared away by the body’s own immune system. This process takes 4-6 weeks so getting treated sooner than that will not make the tattoo removal any quicker and can also put you at risk for scarring.
