Tattoo removal is a cosmetic procedure that involves the use of lasers to break up and remove the ink pigments from the skin. The PicoSure laser is a newer type of laser that has been developed specifically for tattoo removal. It is designed to remove tattoos more quickly and with fewer treatments than traditional lasers. 

Here are some key points about tattoo removal with the PicoSure laser:

  1. How it Works
  • The PicoSure laser uses ultra-short pulses of energy to break up the ink particles in the tattoo.
  • The energy from the laser is absorbed by the ink pigments, causing them to break down into smaller particles.
  • These smaller particles can then be more easily eliminated by the body’s immune system.
  1. Benefits of PicoSure Laser Tattoo Removal
  • PicoSure laser tattoo removal is faster and requires fewer treatments than traditional laser tattoo removal.
  • The PicoSure laser can remove even stubborn and difficult-to-treat colors, such as green and blue.
  • The treatment is less painful than traditional laser tattoo removal, as the ultra-short pulses of energy cause less heat and discomfort.
  1. Procedure
  • The PicoSure laser tattoo removal procedure typically takes 15-30 minutes, depending on the size and complexity of the tattoo.
  • Patients may experience some mild discomfort during the treatment, which can be managed with topical anesthesia or cooling.
  • After the treatment, patients may experience some redness, swelling, and blistering, which typically subside within a few days.
  1. Safety
  • The PicoSure laser is considered a safe and effective treatment for tattoo removal when performed by a qualified and experienced practitioner.
  • However, as with any medical procedure, there are some risks, including skin irritation, scarring, and changes in skin pigmentation.
  • It is important to choose a reputable provider and follow all pre- and post-treatment instructions to minimize the risk of complications.
  1. Results
  • The results of PicoSure laser tattoo removal are typically visible after a few treatments, with continued improvement over several weeks as the ink particles are eliminated by the body.
  • The number of treatments required depends on the size, complexity, and age of the tattoo.
  • With proper sun protection and skincare, the results can be long-lasting.

In summary, PicoSure laser tattoo removal is a safe and effective option for removing unwanted tattoos. If you are interested in this procedure, it is important to consult with our qualified and experienced practitioner to determine if it is right for you.
