FAQs for Tattoo Removal New York
On average a tattoo will take 8-12 sessions to completely remove; sometimes fewer sessions, sometimes more.
Each removal is unique and will depend on factors such as the tattoo location, type of ink used, skin type, aftercare, and the health of the immune system.
To find out more about the factors that influence how many sessions it will take, read our blog here.
We welcome and are able to treat all skin types at NAAMA.
Black ink can be treated on all skin tones, but there are some limitations on treating color inks on darker skin tones due to an increased risk of skin damage. We can only safely treat colored inks on Fitzpatrick 1-3 skin types.
Some people see results after one session, but the speed of the process will vary depending on the tattoo, the tech used, and the health of the immune system.
Once begun, the process happens inside the dermis. We use a dermatoscope to record the progress of your removal and track results.
Return for treatments as often as every 2-3 weeks.
The gentle LightSense® laser system uses significantly less energy than traditional laser tattoo removal devices. This means there is shorter downtime between sessions with clients returning more often, seeing results faster.
Permanent makeup removal is not ‘one size fits all’ and each case is completely unique.
As a guide, we suggest 1-3 sessions for light microblading removal and 3 minimum for machine brows or denser eyebrow tattoos. Many clients get their desired results in 3-5 sessions, but this varies. Our removal packages are a great option to explore for better value per session. The timescale is similar if you’re looking to come to NAAMA for lip blushing and lip tattoo removal, too.
NAAMA consultants are trained according to protocols developed by expert dermatologists. Drawing on previous experience from leading healthcare and hospitality practices, all consultants hold the required industry certifications such as NVQ L3. When they start with NAAMA they undergo a 10-day education program, far more rigorous than the 3-day market standard. They are also experts at using the LightSense® laser system, as we are the only studio you’ll find it in.
Stay hydrated, rest well, and enjoy exercise. The better the state of your general health, the more likely your immune system will respond positively to treatment.
Additionally, we advise that you protect your skin with a sun-safe skincare routine and use a moisturizing sunscreen with high SPF when exposing your treatment area to direct sunlight within two weeks of your treatment.
You might also like to explore our highly-curated range of NAAMA Plus treatments, paired with laser tattoo removal to supercharge your results.
You may be asked to shave if the removal area is densely covered with hair. We will not ask you to shave your eyebrows. Speak to our expert consultants for more information.
Many of our clients say that tattoo removal is a similar sensation to getting a tattoo, others say it is pain free. The LightSense® laser system uses 34X less energy than the average pico laser. This means it causes less pain and is kinder to the skin.
We have a detailed blog answering this question.
Yes, it is possible to completely remove a tattoo with the LightSense® laser system.
However not all tattoos are created equal, and there are a variety of factors that can impact the tattoo removal process. The success of the removal is dependent on the size, depth, position, and color of the tattoo itself, as well as your skin type. The health of your immune system will also play a key part in the efficacy of the removal.
For a specific evaluation of your individual tattoo, contact us and discover how our experts can help you to achieve your goals. A complete tattoo removal is possible but there are certainly things you can do to improve the chances of full clearance.
The Fitzpatrick scale is a numerical classification of human skin types, from 1 to 6. We use this to assess individual skin types so we can create safe and bespoke treatment plans for each client.
Picosecond laser tattoo removal is an elegant science, best understood after a coffee with one of our expert consultants or else a few blog articles and a full cafetiere. While the science of how the LightSense® laser system clears unwanted ink from our skin might seem complex, we are constantly working on resources to explain how the magic happens.
Is there anything the LightSense® laser system can't do? Well, perhaps give a succinct explanation of how it works. This is laser physics after all.
