Treatments for an average sized tattoo typically take about 10 minutes, but larger or more complex tattoos can take longer.
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.
- Number of treatments needed is dependent on variables such as ink characteristics, size of tattoo, location on body, and lifestyle habits
- Treatments typically occur every 6-8 weeks and your treatment provider will develop a treatment plan to meet your individual needs.
Patients and treatment providers have reported better clearance (disappearance) of tattoos with improved recovery time. You can expect excellent results with PicoSure.
PicoSure – The first and leading choice for comfortable and convenient tattoo removal and skin revitalization treatments for wrinkles, acne scars and pigment like freckles, sunspots and discoloration.
PicoSure is the first of a new generation of aesthetic lasers that don’t rely solely on heat to burn or melt away unwanted tattoo ink or melanin, the pigment that causes dark spots in your skin.
Instead, PicoSure engineers used cutting edge physics and medical science to help practitioners treat patients in a new way. Instead of building up heat, PicoSure delivers energy so rapidly (in trillionths of a second) that tiny particles that make up pigment and tattoo ink vibrate and shatter, without burning surrounding tissue. Less heat means less tissue damage and discomfort.
Even more impressively, PicoSure’s revolutionary technology is designed to harness the body’s natural healing processes to restore youthful skin in ways never before possible. Using proprietary Focus lens technology, PicoSure effectively converts the laser energy into gentle pressure waves that activate Cell Signaling, the body’s natural communication processes and one of the most exciting medical discoveries in recent history.
