How many treatment sessions will it take to remove the pigmentation or tattoos?
Depending on the type of pigment in your skin, it can be gone in as few as one to two sessions, especially with freckles and sun spots (lentigenes). Certain pigmentation such as Hori’s nevus or certain birthmarks may require repeated treatment sessions. Similarly with tattoos, the average tattoo requires anywhere between 4-8 treatments. Treatment sessions are usually spaced 6 – 8 weeks apart.
Are there any side effects?
The treated area may darken sometimes but will fade within 2-3 months. This is part of the healing process and lightening cream may be prescribed for you to speed up recovery. Other side effects such as skin lightening and scarring are fortunately rare.
