Those treatments can be anywhere from weeks to months apart. It all depends on how quickly your body heals. It’s for this reason that you should plan on it taking roughly a year. Having a tattoo removed takes much longer than receiving one. There is nothing that can be done to speed up the process. The only thing you can do is live a healthy lifestyle in between procedures. This will allow your body to heal as quickly as possible.

Laser removal isn’t pain free. Though, anesthesia is not required. Topical anesthesia cream or painkiller injections can be used if the tattoo being removed is in a sensitive area.

A smaller area will have far less of an impact. You’ll feel less of the tattoo removal pain and discomfort in a small area. As should be expected.
