Are You Considering Tattoo Removal?

Tattoo removal is an opportunity to start fresh. Just like closing a chapter in a book, deciding to remove a tattoo can symbolize moving on from the past. It’s a process that allows people to change how they present themselves to the world. Tattoo removal often reflects a shift in personal tastes, beliefs, or experiences.

This doesn’t necessarily mean you are erasing memories or significant life events; instead, it’s about aligning your outer appearance with your current journey or preferences. Removing a tattoo can be empowering. It offers a sense of control and the ability to adapt and evolve.

It’s a step towards embracing change and welcoming new opportunities, with the skin serving as a canvas that reflects your ongoing story. The many reasons behind tattoo regret highlight the need for accessible removal options, like advanced laser technology.

What Is PicoSure?

PicoSure® is a versatile laser treatment renowned for its effectiveness in removing tattoos and rejuvenating the skin. Unlike lasers that use nanosecond pulses, PicoSure’s picosecond pulses provide a more efficient solution. (A nanosecond is one-millionth of a second, but a picosecond is one-trillionth of a second!)

While conventional laser systems primarily heat the ink, PicoSure goes further by heating and fracturing the tattoo’s ink into tiny particles. This approach enhances absorption and eventual elimination by the body. One of the most significant benefits is its ability to tackle different ink colors and complex designs. It also works faster, often requiring fewer sessions than other methods.

This technology actively penetrates deeper into the skin, promoting collagen and elastin growth. The treatment is quick, gentle, and suitable for all skin types, offering minimal downtime and mild side effects such as slight redness and swelling. The effectiveness of each treatment varies, but noticeable results often emerge after the skin fully heals.

Why Choose PicoSure for Tattoo Removal?

When considering tattoo removal, laser treatment with PicoSure® is often a better option than more invasive methods like excision and dermabrasion. These methods typically cause more discomfort and are not always suitable for every patient.

Dermabrasion involves numbing the tattooed area and using a high-speed device to sand down the skin to remove the tattoo ink. This treatment is known for yielding unpredictable results and is less effective than laser treatments.

Excision is a more invasive surgical method that involves cutting out the tattoo after numbing the skin. While effective for small tattoos, excision may leave noticeable scars, making it impractical for larger tattoos. Both of these methods can result in scarring or variations in skin color after treatment.

PicoSure laser tattoo removal is a safe, effective, and gentle alternative compared to other methods. Its advanced technology offers a reliable and less invasive approach, ensuring safety and efficiency in the removal process. The precision of the lasers minimizes risks associated with traditional techniques, making it a preferred choice for individuals seeking a secure and comfortable option for tattoo removal.

What to Expect From Your Tattoo Removal

The duration of a PicoSure® tattoo removal session at our MedSpa varies depending on the type, condition, and size of the tattoo being removed. In general, about 4 to 5 treatments are needed, spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart.

This treatment is known for delivering long-lasting results. Many patients find the removal process comparable to getting a tattoo and experience minimal discomfort. It is often compared to a rubber band snapping against the skin. A topical anesthetic can be applied during sessions to enhance comfort, creating a more pleasant treatment experience.
