Laser Tattoo Removal - the treatment process | Inkless

Reasons for a laser tattoo removal ...

… are often based on changes in personal life circumstances of our customers. A new job or a change of personal taste might be just as likely as a preparation for a brand new cover-up tattoo. In all of these cases our customers possess a clear demand – the existing tattoo needs to be removed as soon as possible. But how does a laser tattoo removal work? And how does the before and after examples of such a removal look like?

 The Treatment 

1) Contact Us
Contact us directly – either per telephone via +49 (0)30 880 667 66 or per e-mail at:


3) Test Treatment
In order to see how your skin and the tattoo colors (specifically red and black) react to the treatment and to take away the fear of pain, we will start with a very small test laser treatment (approximately 1 cm²).
2) Free Pre-examination
Our free pre-examination guarantees that the treatment plan is individualized for your skin-type as well as the size, color and age of your tattoo. Each tattoo is different and in order to achieve the best possible treatment, we want to take our time to get to know you personally.
4) Treatment (Multiple Sessions)
Normally, a laser tattoo removal will take 8 to 12 sessions to fully remove the ink. If you are looking for a cover-up preparation, usually half of the sessions will be enough to bleach the tattoo enough for a new stitching. We are using a modern Nd:YAG laser system to guarantee a fast treatment without complications.
5) Pauses (between Treatments)
In between the treatments, the skin needs to recover 30-45 days. This will give your body enough time to regenerate and deal with the wound. To support this healing process, a special aftercare with healing products is recommended. Follow-up appointments can be immediately scheduled on site.
6) Aftercare
Laser tattoo removal is a “team sport”, which requires your involvement to be successful. Your aftercare influences how the healing proceeds. With a regular aftercare based on specialized healing products, you can save time and reduce the chance for scars.

How many sessions are required?

Many customers are looking for a fast laser tattoo removal – out of an understandable motivation. However, we want to manage your expectations realistically. Generally a tattoo removal requires multiple sessions to fully vanish. In each of the sessions, the remaining ink in the skin is targeted by the laser and parts of it are slowly digested by the lymph-system. Depending on the number of colors, their composition, the type and depth of the tattoo, the intensity of the stitching as well as own body properties like the immune system – the speed to remove the tattoo can vary substantially. Normally, a complete laser tattoo removal will take anywhere between 8 and 12 sessions and is influenced by the mentioned factors.

A tattoo can be removed faster if …

… less color was injected during the stitching process. The more color is beneath the skin, the longer the removal process will take.
… the tattoo is undergoing a treatment in a regular interval (larger pauses in-between the sessions can reduce the efficiency).
… the client actively performs an aftercare with high-quality healing products.
Immune System
… the client has a healthy immune system, which is fit to transport the ink particles.

The correct aftercare

With the right aftercare method, a tattoo can be removed even faster and the chances for scars are minimized. For your personal aftercare, please notice that in the first days after the treatment, the skin is very sensitive. Hence, following tips should help you to optimize your personal aftercare:

No cosmetics
No cosmetics
Intense sport such as swimming or sauna in the first two weeks can lead to wound openings and scars.
No Sun
Direct sunlight, solarium and other UV light should be avoided to prevent unwanted interruptions in the healing process.
Cooling & Disinfection
After the treatment the skin should be cooled and additionally disinfected multiple times during the first days to prevent infections.
The first days
Keep the treated skin dry and air-sealed if possible. After 2-3 days, you can start to use pure water for cleansing.
