According to one poll in 2016, half of the people between the ages of 18 – 35 have tattoos and a quarter of them regret it. More men regret tattoos than women do. The top reason is that they gave little thought to getting the tattoo at the time and have since decided it wasn’t a good idea. Laser tattoo removal has been the best way to remove unwanted ink, and PicoSure® tattoo removal is considered to be the best of the best.

The PicoSure® laser emits a much quicker pulse than other lasers to remove the tattoo faster than previously possible. PicoSure® is approved by the Federal Drug Administration (FDA) as a technology that emits short laser pulses that interact with the ink particles beneath the skin with a huge amount of pressure. The pigment is shattered into dust-sized particles that are eliminated from the body through the immune system. It is a better system for hard-to-remove tattoos because it generally requires fewer treatments to achieve results.

Traditional laser tattoo removal may require up to 20 sessions and still not achieve the complete removal of the tattoo. PicoSure® tattoo removal, with its picosecond bursts of energy, typically requires less treatment sessions, and there may be no trace of the tattoo. It tends to require fewer visits and less time for each visit.

When you consult with our specialist, you will learn more about PicoSure® tattoo removal. If you plan to remove your tattoo, you will be given instructions for preparation for the treatment and aftercare.

PicoSure® is the latest and most effective laser tattoo removal system today. There is very little risk of long-term scarring, and you may look forward to clear skin again. You will be relieved of your tattoo regret and could even have a new one applied if you want.
