How does PicoSure tattoo removal work?

PicoSure employs a cutting-edge picosecond laser technology. Unlike traditional lasers that emit pulses in nanoseconds (billionths of a second), PicoSure emits ultra-short pulses measured in picoseconds (trillionths of a second). This incredibly short pulse duration allows for precise targeting of tattoo ink particles without causing excessive damage to the surrounding skin.

Is PicoSure suitable for all types of tattoos?

PicoSure is effective for most types of tattoos, including those with difficult-to-remove colors like green and blue. However, individual results may vary, and some tattoos may require more sessions for complete removal.

How many sessions are needed for tattoo removal with PicoSure?

The number of sessions needed depends on factors such as the size, color, and depth of the tattoo, as well as the individual's skin type and response to treatment. On average, multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart are required for optimal results.

Is PicoSure tattoo removal painful?

Most people experience some discomfort during PicoSure tattoo removal, often described as similar to the sensation of a rubber band snapping against the skin. However, topical numbing creams or cooling techniques can help minimize discomfort during the procedure.

Are there any side effects of PicoSure tattoo removal?

Temporary side effects of PicoSure tattoo removal may include redness, swelling, blistering, and mild discomfort. These side effects typically resolve within a few days to a couple of weeks after treatment.

How long does it take to see results from PicoSure tattoo removal?

Visible results from PicoSure tattoo removal may become apparent after the first few sessions, as the tattoo gradually fades. However, complete removal may take several sessions spaced over several months.

Can PicoSure tattoo removal cause scarring?

When performed by a qualified and experienced practitioner, PicoSure tattoo removal is associated with minimal risk of scarring. Following post-treatment care instructions and avoiding sun exposure can help minimize the risk of complications.

Is PicoSure tattoo removal permanent?

PicoSure tattoo removal can significantly fade or remove tattoos, but complete removal may not always be possible, especially for heavily pigmented or deep tattoos. However, most people achieve satisfactory results with multiple sessions.

Before your Tatto Removal treatment

Avoid sun exposure: Refrain from direct sun exposure or tanning beds for at least two weeks prior to the treatment. Sunburned or tanned skin is more prone to complications and may affect the effectiveness of the treatment.

Avoid certain medications: Some medications, such as blood thinners or photosensitizing drugs, may increase the risk of adverse reactions or complications. Consult with your healthcare provider about discontinuing these medications before the procedure.

Shave treatment area: If possible, shave the treatment area the day before the procedure to ensure optimal results. However, avoid waxing, plucking, or using depilatory creams, as these methods can irritate the skin.

Cleanse the skin: Cleanse the treatment area thoroughly on the day of the procedure to remove any makeup, lotions, or skincare products. Clean, dry skin allows for better penetration of the laser energy.

after your Tatto Removal treatment

Protect the treated area: Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF to the treated area daily, especially if going outdoors. Sun protection helps prevent post-treatment complications and maintains the results.

Avoid sun exposure: Minimize sun exposure and wear protective clothing, hats, and sunglasses when outdoors. Sun exposure can increase the risk of pigmentation changes or other complications.

Moisturize the skin: Keep the treated area moisturized with gentle, non-irritating skincare products to promote healing and prevent dryness or irritation.

Avoid harsh skincare products: Refrain from using harsh skincare products, such as exfoliants or retinoids, until the treated area has fully healed. These products can exacerbate irritation or sensitivity.

Avoid picking or scratching: Resist the urge to pick, scratch, or rub the treated area, as this can disrupt the healing process and increase the risk of scarring or infection.

It's important to note that the specific results and benefits of the treatment may vary depending on the individual's skin condition, treatment plan, and other factors. It's essential to consult with our specialists to determine if the treatment is suitable for your specific needs and expectations.
