Have you forgotten what the Chinese character on your shoulder represents? If your tattoo doesn’t reflect your life anymore, remove it! Do you need a tattoo removed so you can get that new job? With PicoSure’s advanced laser technology, eliminating unwanted tattoos is now possible. PicoSure can eliminate difficult tattoos containing very dark lines and blue and green inks. Even recalcitrant tattoos that have previously undergone unsuccessful laser treatments can be removed. PicoSure laser tattoo removal is fast and effective, with some tattoos being removed in as few as three sessions.
Several factors, including the tattoo’s size and color, will determine the number of laser tattoo removal sessions that will be needed to remove it. Short sessions are scheduled four to six weeks apart so the pigment can be naturally expelled from the body. Some people say that the PicoSure tattoo removal procedure is less painful than getting a tattoo, and don’t usually require anesthetic. Patients may experience a temporary sunburn-like sensation and other minor side effects, but scarring is rare. Most people can resume their normal activities immediately following tattoo removal treatment without any downtime.
Compared to Q-switched Nd: YAG lasers, PicoSure represents a major revolution in laser tattoo removal! It is equipped with a picosecond laser and uses advanced PressureWave technology to deliver laser energy up to 100 times faster than older tattoo removal lasers. Its powerful laser light bursts are able to shatter underlying tattoo inks into microscopic particles that the body can naturally eliminate through the immune system.
Other outdated lasers rely on heat energy to melt the pigment. However, the extreme heat from the laser can also burn your skin and requires more sessions to erase tattoos. PicoSure is able to remove tattoos quicker and with fewer side effects because of its advanced picosecond technology. PicoSure laser tattoo removal is safe for most skin types.
