Contour Dermatology Nurse Practitioner Kara Crane Demonstrates Tattoo Removal.
The number of treatments depends on the size, location, depth, and color of your tattoo. Large or heavily pigmented tattoos can require many removal treatments for optimum results. When you come in for an initial consultation, Dr. Jochen will be able to give you an estimate on how many treatments it will take to remove your tattoo. Treatment sessions usually last from 10 to 30 minutes. You will see a lightening of your tattoo after each treatment as your body disposes of more pigment.
