How Soon Can I Remove My New Tattoo?

how-soon-tattoo-removal-laser-tattoo-removal-midtown-manhattanMany times we meet with people who knew that they want their tattoo removed from the moment they walk out of the tattoo shop.  In some cases, we receive calls to schedule an appointment on the same day they receive their tattoo!  In these instances, one of the first questions we receive is, "How soon can I remove my tattoo?"  The answer is that, as long as the skin is properly healed after receiving a tattoo, we can begin removal anytime. The best way to remove a tattoo is with a series of laser tattoo removal treatments.  The laser sends a unique energy directly onto the tattoo ink, which breaks the ink into small fragments, to be flushed from the body by your immune system.  The majority of patients require between six and ten treatments for tattoo removal, though sometimes difficult-to-target ink types can take even more treatments.  Newer techniques allow for the tattoo removal process to proceed much more quickly; the new R20 method of laser tattoo removal allows up to four treatments to be performed within a single visit.  This allows for the removal of unwanted tattoos much more quickly than previous methods.
