Will My Faded Tattoo Come Back?
Although traces of your faded tattoo will remain, they will not come back or get darker. In fact, over time, they may even get lighter, as older tattoos tend to fade. The best part about fading a tattoo before a coverup is that laser tattoo removal easily breaks down the darkest pigments that would be the hardest to cover.
What Is Laser Tattoo Removal Like?
We will use a numbing agent to make sure your tattoo fading session feels painless and comfortable. Your treatment may take anywhere from 15-45 minutes, depending on the size of the tattoo. The number of sessions needed usually ranges from two to six, but some tattoos may need eight or possibly more.
New York Skin & Vein Center’s Laser Tattoo Removal Guarantee
Tattoo removal can take several sessions to remove as fully as possible. However, we guarantee that we will provide all further sessions free of charge if your tattoo has not been removed after eight sessions.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Tattoo Removal?
If you have a tattoo you plan to cover up, you may make a good candidate for laser tattoo removal. The laser will break down the darkest and heaviest pigments first, making the old tattoo a breeze for your tattoo artist to cover with something new. All that’s left is deciding what you plan to get for your coverup!
