Tattoo Removal is a safe and easy minimal procedure with the new PressureWaveTM Technology from Picosure. While most lasers use heat to melt the ink particles or melanin in the skin, our laser uses energy to rapidly pulse the skin causing the ink particles to burst and disburse. Picosure tattoo removal treats all colors and all skin types. This is the first laser to deeply and effectively treat blue and green ink, hard to remove black ink, and previously treated or older ink.
After a thorough consultation with our medical team, a package of 2-10 treatments will be provided depending on the depth, color, placement, and length of time you have had the tattoo. The wavelengths used to treat the pigment are 532nm, 755nm, and 1064nm and will be determined prior to your procedure. A snap of a rubber band is how many describe the feeling during the removal process. Due to the lack of heat, many experience minimal to no redness, blistering, or downtime after each treatment. Sunscreen with a minimum of SPF 30 should be applied to the treatment area as needed throughout series of tattoo removal. It is recommended that treatments are scheduled 6 to 8 weeks apart. IV therapy is available before or after your treatment to increase and promote healing.
