Do you wish you hadn’t tattooed your ex-girlfriend’s name across your heart? If you have an unwanted tattoo, you are not alone. Nearly 20 percent of people have tattoos that they regret. Now removing unwanted tattoos is easier than ever before with the PicoSure laser. This revolutionary picosecond aesthetic laser can remove very dark lines as well as notoriously stubborn blue and green inks. PicoSure can also remove tattoos that have previously undergone unsuccessful laser treatments. Removing tattoos is easy, with some patients experiencing total clearance after just three laser tattoo removal sessions.
PicoSure is the only tattoo removal device on the market that uses a picosecond laser. PressureWave laser light bursts completely shatter the underlying tattoo ink into microscopic particles that the body can easily remove. In contrast, nanosecond lasers are powerful, but they burn the pigment and damage the surrounding skin with photothermal effects. PicoSure laser tattoo removal does not harm your skin, and in four to six weeks the tattoo will begin to fade as the body eliminates the ink from your skin.
PicoSure represents a major advancement in laser tattoo removal. The length of the procedure and the number of sessions required depends on the size and color of the tattoo. It is recommended that you wait four to six weeks between each session so the tattoo has time to naturally fade. Some PicoSure tattoo removal patients say that laser treatments are less painful than getting a tattoo. Compared to other procedures, recovery time is very short and patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately following treatment. Laser tattoo removal procedures have few side effects and scarring is rare.
