Default Laser results after 4 sessions

Had 2 laser sessions on the forearm (which is faded enough for a coverup) and 4 sessions on the band. Was hoping the band would have faded a bit more to be honest but perhaps i was expecting too much ? Want a jap full sleeve to match my other arm but i think maybe the band is still too dark for a decent coverup ? Does this look about right for 4 sessions of laser or should i have better results.Know its dependant on quite a few factors but its so shite having to payout 90 quid a session for laser work.

90 quid a session who you going to.

i would have expected to have seen more removed from the arm band for sure.
compared to the other one on the forearm.

but as you say mant factors and one of them being im not a lasertech so cant really give an honest answer, but i would think being black it would come out a lot easier.

Going to a local tattoists for the laser.The tat on the forearm was pretty faded to begin with anyway.Not much of a choice for laser removal round here.Perhaps i need to look a bit further afield if i get some more.

laser results vary greatly from person to person and placement after 4 treatments ,to expect near complete removal of a machine tattoo is a bit unrealistic, you are able to see distinct lightning
however if its at the same studio who will be doing the tattoo cover up to charge 90 per session i think is ripping the arse out of ya ,if its a dedicated laser only studio 90 for tattoo of that size yer getting a distinct bargain compaired to some of the prices ive seen being charged

who is doing your treatment and where are you based ?

90 that is a lot for one session! Like V said 4 sessions I would expect a lot more black removed, but everybody skin/tattoos are diffirent and also depends on the machine they use.

I pay a lot less for removal

Not sure exactly what you want to cover it with, but i'd say thats very coverable already so no need for any more treatments.
