What is Tattoo Removal?
Tattoo removal is a procedure for removing unwanted tattoos, or permanent body art designs, from the skin.

What are the options for removing unwanted tatoos?
The most common tattoo removal procedures are:

  • Laser surgery: Energy from a laser is applied to the tattoo in order to heat and break up the tattoo ink. Different wavelengths of light may be used for different colors.
  • Dermabrasion: The tattoo is numbed and the skin is eroded by an abrasive brush or wheel. The tattoo ink seeps from the skin.
  • Surgical removal: The surgeon removes the tattoo with a scalpel and stitches up the skin.

What are the chances of success for removing a tattoo?
Removing a tattoo is more difficult than the original tattoo as the ink is beneath the skin’s top layer. Certain colors respond better than others and certain skin tones are easier to work with. Patients may not always achieve complete tattoo removal.

What specialists performs tattoo removal?
Tattoo removal is carried out by a dermatologist.

Duration of procedure/surgery : The duration of the tattoo removal procedure varies depending on the technique used but generally takes between a few minutes and an hour.

Number of sessions required : Most patients need repeated sessions to complete the tattoo removal. The number of sessions required depends on the color, size and type of the tattoo.

Days admitted : None. Tattoo removal takes place on an outpatient basis.
