How many treatments do I need to completely remove my tattoo?

Well, the short answer is that Tattoo Removal varies for each client since their tattoos are unique. It is almost impossible to predict the precise number of treatments needed for a tattoo to be completely removed. But the good news is that at Vanish Laser Clinic, we use the most powerful and efficient laser tattoo removal technologies that minimize the time and discomfort associated with your tattoo removal.

Based on experience, most tattoos take somewhere between 6-12 sessions to completely get removed. Here are some factors that play a part in this timeline.

  • Fitzpatrick skin type
  • Tattoo layering (if the tattoo is a cover-up)
  • Location on the body
  • Ink colors
  • Amount of ink applied
  • The type of ink applied
  • Pre-existing scarring from the tattoo process
  • Immune system function
  • Tobacco use
  • Age
  • Overall health and fitness
  • Technology used

Getting your tattoo removed efficiently and as quickly as possible is not only your goal, but ours as well. At Vanish Laser Tattoo Removal Clinic Alexandria, we believe that the more satisfied you are with your tattoo removal experience, the more likely you are to refer us to your friends and colleagues who are looking to get their tattoos removed.

An important factor that plays a part in the rate of your tattoo removal is technology.  At Vanish Laser Clinic, we use the Astanza Trinity system – the most powerful multi-wavelength laser system in the market. With this laser system, we are able to treat any color tattoo, any size, safely and efficiently.

We are among a very few Tattoo Removal Clinics in Alexandria, Virginia that offers this type of technology, so you can be assured that your tattoo can be removed faster than most other places.  Here’s the best part, by visiting Vanish Laser Clinic, you will be paying for fewer sessions and end up paying less.

So, we hope we answered some of your questions regarding the number of treatments needed to remove your tattoo.  Don’t forget that we offer free consultations and our prices start at only $99.
