Did you get a tattoo as an impulse decision but find that you hate the site of it now? Mistakes happen and whatever the case may be, having a permanent reminder of them can be irritating. Thanks to the amazing technology behind the Picosure laser, however, there is now a way to remove the tattoos you wish never existed.

What Is the Picosure Laser and How Does it Work?

The Picosure laser is the most innovative tattoo removing technology available. It is highly advanced and is effective in removing tattoos much faster than other laser technologies. Unlike the outdated lasers of the past, including the Q-switched laser, the Picosure laser utilizes a picosecond laser to safely remove dark lines, blue inks, and green inks.

The energy generated by the laser is incredibly powerful and is capable of targeting and shattering the underlying ink from the tattoo into microscopic particles. The particles will be carried out of your body through its natural processes.

Unpleasant side effects, including scarring and pain were common in other laser technologies. In addition to this, the tattoos were also not removed completely and could still be seen.

The Picosure laser is a vast improvement over the older lasers for tattoo removal. Not only is it more effective, the Picosure technology also does not rely on heat energy. As a result, it will not cause any damage to the skin.

What to Expect with the Picosure Treatment

Removing a tattoo requires a number of sessions to be a success. The number of sessions you will have to undergo depends largely on the tattoo’s size, color, age, and your skin type. Your sessions will also be scheduled four to six weeks apart to give your body time to naturally dispense of the ink particles. The Picosure laser works rapidly and in some cases has helped patients experience a complete removal in as little as three sessions.

You may feel some discomfort during the treatment, but your surgeon can apply a local anesthetic to the skin to help decrease any discomfort you may feel during your sessions. The treatment is safe for all skin types, but there are cases where patients may experience some redness following this treatment. This is temporary and will subside quickly.

How Is The Procedure Carried Out?

The first step is to schedule a consultation with an experienced surgeon. A detailed assessment of the tattoo and the type of wavelength required will be made in this session. After analyzing your skin type and the details of the tattoo, your surgeon will discuss the number of treatment sessions you need to get rid of the tattoo.

After the laser treatment, antiseptic cream and dressings are applied on the skin by your doctor. Applying sunscreen on the skin also is encouraged. The scabs that are formed after the laser treatment fall off after a few days, leaving a tattoo free skin behind!
