PicoSure Tattoo Removal is a laser tattoo removal procedure.
How it Works
Picosure is the world’s first aesthetic picosecond laser which targets all colors of tattoo ink. The laser shatters the ink particles, and your body naturally removes the unwanted ink through your lymphatic system. There is no harm to surrounding tissues and no scarring. There is no downtime.
What to Expect
We apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area for 20-30 minutes. There is some discomfort during the process, which clients say is similar to getting a tattoo. We use a cooling fan for your comfort. While we trace your tattoo with the laser, ultra-short pulses of specialized energy are targeting the ink particles. Treating small to medium size tattoos takes only a few minutes. Larger and more detailed tattoos require more time per treatment. We apply Vaseline to keep the area moist and cover it for 24 hours.
After Your Treatment
Your tattoo will turn light gray for a few hours. You may see some swelling. Do not pick or scratch the area. Some clients experience blistering. If this happens, we give you a prescription to avoid infection. You will see your tattoo fading in four to six weeks. For the best results, treatments are scheduled 6-8 weeks apart. The number of treatment varies for each person.
