Yes, pioneering, state-of-the-art lasers are now available to remove tattoos in pico- and nano-second emission. The best known are the Q-switched Neodymium Yag laser and the Picoway. The wavelength influences the type of colour it can remove and the power and accuracy influence the number of shots. The greater the precision, the lower the risk of burns and the fewer sessions required.
And thanks to these latest technologies, the removal of micropigmentation is painless.
How many sessions are required to remove micropigmentation?
It will depend on the depth and the pigment used. Fortunately, and unlike conventional tattooing, micropigmentation is carried out on more superficial layers of the skin, and consequently, its removal is faster. A maximum of three sessions will be sufficient to completely eliminate the treatment.
It is important to highlight that darker pigments require fewer sessions than lighter pigments, and that white is one of the pigments that cannot be removed by laser. There are certain pigments that turn a different colour during the removal process until they disappear completely.
How long does it take between laser sessions to remove micropigmentation? And when a new treatment could be carried out.
The skin needs between 20 and 40 days to regenerate, until then the final result of the session cannot be perceived, nor is it advisable to carry out any additional removal sessions. During this period it is important to apply regenerating cream and to protect it from the sun +50.
You will have to wait at least 40 days for your skin to fully regenerate before you can start a new treatment.
