What makes PicoSure Tattoo Removal different?
PicoSure is the world’s first picosecond laser and the only advanced tattoo removal laser with PressureWave technology, which works with your body to remove unwanted ink. PicoSure delivers laser energy that specifically targets tattoo ink, resulting in the successful shattering of just the ink particles without harming the surrounding tissue. The Picosure technology also can remove tattoos far more rapidly than older Q-switch lasers.
What type of tattoo does PicoSure effectively remove?
PicoSure works effectively on:
Multicolored tattoos, including blues and greens
Hard-to-remove black ink
Stubborn, previously treated tattoos
PicoSure tattoo removal requires fewer treatments than traditional laser tattoo removal.
How does PicoSure work?
During treatments with PicoSure, PressureWave technology is used to deliver ultra-short pulses of specialized energy to targeted ink particles.
These pulses are so rapid they cause a change in pressure that breaks ink apart into tiny dust-like particles. These tiny particles are then absorbed by the lymphatic system, a critical part of your body’s immune system, and eliminated naturally.
PressureWave is the secret behind tattoo treatments with the PicoSure laser. By delivering the ideal energy to the skin, PicoSure efficiently shatters tattoo ink and allows your body to remove it naturally.
What does laser tattoo removal feel like?
Laser tattoo removal has been described as feeling similar to the actual tattooing process. PicoSure relies on pressure changes instead of just heat to break apart ink particles but some patients may feel some discomfort. Your treatment provider should be able to provide aids to make your experience more comfortable.
How many treatments will I need?
Number of treatments needed is dependent on variables such as ink characteristics, size of tattoo, location on body, and if it is a cover up tattoo. Treatments typically occur every 6-8 weeks and we will develop a treatment plan to meet your individual needs.
