Did getting a lower back tattoo in college seem like a great way to stand out from the crowd? If you regret that decision, it is finally possible to take back the past by removing your unwanted tattoo. With PicoSure’s advanced laser technology, removing tattoos is fast and safe. Some tattoos can be completely removed in as few as three sessions without harming your skin.
How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
PicoSure represents a major technological advancement over obsolete Q-switched Nd: YAG lasers. PicoSure uses a picosecond laser that can remove almost all tattoos. The full spectrum of colored tattoo inks, including notoriously stubborn blues and greens and very dark lines can be removed. PicoSure’s powerful laser light pulses shatter underlying tattoo inks into microscopic particles that the immune system can naturally eliminate from the body. PicoSure laser treatments are safe and will not permanently damage your skin. Even if you have tried other tattoo removal treatments before without success, PicoSure can deliver the results you’ve been waiting for.
What to Expect During PicoSure Laser Tattoo Removal
Four to six appointments are typically needed to remove the average tattoo, although the exact number will depend on the tattoo’s size and age. Some people say that the procedure feels similar to getting a tattoo, but for a much shorter duration. A cooling anesthetic can also be provided to alleviate discomfort. PicoSure laser tattoo removal has few side effects, which include some temporary skin whitening and a sunburn-like sensation. Most people are able to resume their normal activities immediately following treatment without experiencing any downtime.
