No. The protocol calls for starting at a lower setting than normal and increasing. The goal is always create frosting. We have a regular patient treated with a setting to cause light frosting 3 times on different dates and about 97 % of her ink is gone. So, it's really mostly supporting the body in removing the ink that is most important - if not rushed for time.
