Dermatologist's Inside Tips: Tattoo Removal & Rosacea Treatments
It is estimated that close to 25 percent of the U.S. population has some sort of tattoo.

Eventually, as many as 50 percent of these individuals want to have laser tattoo removal.

Depending on the size and color of your tattoo, the number of treatments will vary.

Your tattoo may be removed in two to four visits, though it may take as many as 10 more sessions.
