Question by drbwmnxo: Info on Tattoo Removal please?
How painful is it?
Does it really work?
Does it completely remove ALL of the tattoo? even color?
How expensive? Can you make payments?
How long does it take?
Is it harmful?
I’m very interested & would like to know as much info as possible. I have looked it up online but would rather get info from someone who has experienced tattoo removal or knows a lot about it.
Thank you!! & no rude comments like.. “You shouldn’t have a got a tattoo to begin with.. blahh blahh” ..

It depends on the size, age, and colour of the tattoo, and the type of ink used.
Dark pigments respond better to laser, green and blue are very difficult to remove.
Older tattoos take more sessions, as they are deeper in the skin.
Darker colours can usually be completly removed, there may be a scar or a lack of skin pigment in the area, especially if she has darker skin.
Do your research, make sure you go to a reputable and experienced establishment, as pretty much anyone who can afford a laser can buy one, and use it, without regulation, and a laser can cause a lot of damage in un trained hands.
Yes it does hurt, see if you can buy some local anesthetic cream, like EMLA cream to apply to the area an hour before treatment, to numb it a bit.
Laser treatment is not cheap, price will depend largely on how well it works i.e how many treatments she will need.
