Got an unwanted tattoo? And want to get rid of it as soon as possible? Well, one question you might have is ‘How long do I need to wait in between my laser tattoo removal treatments?’

And you might be surprised to learn you need to wait at least 6-8 weeks between laser tattoo removal treatments. If you speak to a laser tattoo removal expert, they will tell you that this is the recommended amount of time for a successful result.

Why?

Because you have to give your body enough time to go through the ink elimination process. And for the skin ample time to heal. Understanding how laser tattoo removal works will shed some light into why you need to wait at least 6 weeks in between each treatment.

The laser light shatters the ink into tiny little particles. The lymphatic system then works to eliminate the shattered ink. The lymphatic system is the body’s natural cleaning system.

The body will continue to eliminate the shattered ink over the coming weeks. And this process will continue into weeks 4 and 5. Going back for another treatment too soon can hinder the process and thus can increase risk of skin irritation and scarring.

Have Patience

You need to wait this long is to allow your skin to completely heal. Going back for another treatment too soon can hinder the process and thus can increase risk of skin irritation and scarring. On the surface your skin might look like it’s healed. However, the deeper layers of the skin take time to heal.

Going back too soon interferes with the process, and you’ll be wasting your money.

We do also advise to follow the aftercare instructions so we can achieve optimum results. Keep the treated area out of the sun for at least 1 week before the next treatment. If you must go in the sun be sure to use SPF30+ sunscreen and keep covered up if possible.
