Tattoo Removal in Winston-Salem

How many treatments will I need?

There is no official way to determine exactly the number of treatments you will need, but on average, most patients need between 5 and 10 treatments before achieving complete ink removal. Patients with older, smaller, or more faded tattoos may only need 3 to 4 treatments. That being said, every patient and their tattoo is unique and so is the number of treatments they will need. During your free consultation, Dr. Hudes will assess your tattoo based on a variety of factors in order to best estimate the number of treatments you will need in order to reach complete removal. These factors include:


  • Age of tattoo

  • Size of tattoo

  • Location of tattoo

  • Ink density

  • Depth of ink

  • Pre-existing scarring

  • Type of artist (professional vs. amateur)

  • Patient health
