If you don’t know who Pete Davidson is, he is a comedian, actor, writer, and producer, made famous for his work on shows such as Saturday Night Live and his most recent project, The King of Staten Island.
In that same vein, you've most likely heard that he's in the process of getting all 100-something of his tattoos removed. But what exactly does that entail? How does it work? How long will it take? No need to fret – Astanza Laser has all the answers.
How does laser tattoo removal work?
Each pulse of the laser sends light energy into your skin; different wavelengths treat different ink colors. The light energy safely penetrates your skin and is selectively absorbed by the tattoo ink particles in the skin's dermis layer. The ink particles absorb the energy and shatter into tiny fragments. Once these particles break into smaller pieces, your body's immune system naturally clears out the ink through the lymphatic system. As a result, you'll notice the tattoo lightening and fading in appearance in the weeks following. With each treatment, more ink particles are shattered until the tattoo is no longer visible.
How long will it take to remove Pete's tattoos entirely?
Davidson recently stated all his tattoos should be gone by the time he turns 30. For the record, Davidson is currently 27 years old. So, why will it take more than two years to complete? Glad you asked!
Laser tattoo removal is the safest, most effective method for removing unwanted tattoos. That said, it's not a one-and-done process. Depending on the size and depth of the tattoo, the skin type of the patient, and a few other factors, it can take anywhere from four to 10+ sessions for complete removal. In addition, a minimum of six to eight weeks between sessions gives the immune system time to flush out the shattered ink particles. This waiting period also gives the skin time to heal and minimizes the risk of permanent damage to the skin.
The Kirby-Desai Scale is a tool used to help determine how many sessions it may take to remove an unwanted tattoo fully. The scale takes into consideration the following factors that affect the rate of removal:
- Fitzpatrick skin type
- Location on the body
- Tattoo layering (if the tattoo is a cover-up)
- Amount of ink (vividness of tattoo, type of application)
- Ink colors
- Pre-existing scarring
