Do you wish you hadn’t tattooed your ex-girlfriend’s name across your heart? If you have an unwanted tattoo, you are not alone. Nearly 20 percent of people have tattoos that they regret. Now removing unwanted tattoos is easier than ever before with the PicoSure laser. This revolutionary picosecond aesthetic laser can remove notoriously difficult blue and green inks as well as dark lines.
How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
PicoSure is the only device that uses a picosecond laser. Other tattoo removal systems use outdated nanosecond lasers which are approximately 100 times slower than the PicoSure. PressureWave technology completely shatters the underlying tattoo ink into microscopic particles which the body can easily break down and assimilate. In contrast, nanosecond lasers are powerful, but they burn the pigment and damage surrounding skin with photothermal effects. The PicoSure will not harm your skin and in four to six weeks the tattoo will begin to fade as the body absorbs and eliminates the pigment from your skin.
Why Choose PicoSure™?
- Fewer treatments than traditional lasers (half # treatments)
- Same cost or less overall
- Much faster removal of most tattoo inks
- Much more effective for blues and greens
- Much more thorough ink particle destruction even on previously treated tattoos
- Reduced side effects
- Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for tattoo removal
What to Expect
PicoSure represents a major advancement in laser tattoo removal. The length of the procedure and the number of sessions you will undergo varies depending on the size and color of the tattoo. It is recommended that you wait four to six weeks between each session so the tattoo has time to fade. PicoSure tattoo removal is relatively painless, with most patients comparing laser pulses to the snap of a thin rubber band.
Compared to other procedures, recovery time is very short and patients can resume their normal activities immediately following treatment. Laser tattoo removal procedures have few side effects and scarring is rare.
