Laser Tattoo Removal with PicoSure

Posted by admin in Laser Treatments | PicoSure

It is estimated that over 10 million Americans have at least 1 tattoo and, on average, 1 of
every 5 people who get a tattoo, regret getting it. There are several reasons for wanting to remove a tattoo, such as, fading colors, hard to hide for professional reasons, tastes may have changed or it simply does not look good anymore. With the evolution of cosmetic laser technology, there is finally a safe tattoo removal treatment that does not cause permanent damage to the skin. Of these laser treatments dedicated to tattoo removal, PicoSure is the world’s first safe and effective picosecond aesthetic laser.

The special PicoSure laser treatment uses intense photomechanical technology, also

 known as the patented PressureWave, that disrupts the ink more efficiently than nanosecond laser technology. PicoSure has become a leading solution for tattoo removal because of the picosecond technology that breaks the ink down into much smaller particles than nanosecond laser tattoo removal solutions. The nanosecond laser tattoo removal treatments can take up to 10 treatments to completely remove, while PicoSure averages about 4 treatments. So not only does PicoSure require fewer treatments, but also limits injury to surrounding skin due to the precision of the ultra-pulse technology. PicoSure is also highly recommended for tattoo removal because it can resolve stubborn ink colors like blues and greens, which other laser treatments have trouble resolving.

If you have any questions about laser treatment or the best solution for your tattoo removal, talk to a board certified dermatologist and find out if PicoSure tattoo removal treatment is right for you.
