How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
The PicoSure laser uses the most advanced technology available to effectively remove tattoos faster than ever before. Unlike the outdated Q-switched lasers of the past, PicoSure uses a picosecond laser that can safely remove dark lines as well as blue and green inks. The powerful energy from the laser light is able to target and shatter the underlying ink from your tattoo into microscopic particles. These particles are naturally carried out of your body through the immune system. Unlike previous tattoo removal lasers, PicoSure does not rely on heat energy and as a result it will not damage the skin and is safe for all skin types.
Picosure™ Laser vs. Traditional Lasers
What to Expect When Removing Tattoos with PicoSure™
The number of tattoo removal sessions needed to fully remove your tattoo will be determined by the tattoo’s size, color and age, as well as your skin type. The PicoSure laser works faster than traditional tattoo removal systems, with some tattoos showing complete clearance in as little as three sessions. Some patients report the procedure feeling similar to the sensation of getting a tattoo, but much faster. A cooling anesthetic can be applied to your skin to help minimize any discomfort during the treatment session. Because the PicoSure laser is safe for all skin types, scarring from the procedure is rare. However, some patients do experience a temporary redness and sunburn-like feeling following treatment. Sessions are scheduled four to six weeks apart so the ink can be naturally expelled from the body.
