Multi colored laser tattoo removal
While laser technology for tattoo removal has become more advanced with the advent of picosecond technology it is difficult to guarantee complete removal. It is very important to have realistic expectations of you are considering laser tattoo removal. The darker colors such as blue, black, green are easier to clear while colors such as yellow, orange or red are more difficult to removal. There are many variables such as location, and type of ink. Lasers work by fragmenting the ink particles sitting beneath the skin but it is up to your body to clear those particles and therefor it is difficult to guarantee complete removal.
This is tattoo with newer technology can take anywhere from 8 to 12 sessions and with older q switched technology could be even longer.
All the best
Some of the colors might be difficult but you could definitely improve the appearance. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
