Ready to lose your tattoo? Do it better and faster with PicoSure
PicoSure is the world's first picosecond laser and the only advanced tattoo removal laser with PressureWave technology, which works with your body to remove unwanted ink. PicoSure delivers laser energy that specifically targets tattoo ink, resulting in the successful shattering of just the ink particles without harming the surrounding tissue.
PicoSure works effectively on:
- Multicolored tattoos, including blues and greens
- Hard-to-remove black ink
- Stubborn, previously treated tattoos
Best of all, PicoSure tattoo removal often requires fewer treatments than traditional laser tattoo removal.
How does it work?
Lasers do not remove tattoos, your body does. Naturally. Let PicoSure help.
During treatments with PicoSure, PressureWave technology is used to deliver ultra-short pulses of specialized energy to targeted ink particles.
PressureWave technology in action.
These pulses are so rapid they cause a change in pressure that breaks ink apart into tiny dust-like particles. These tiny particles are then absorbed by the lymphatic system, a critical part of your body's immune system, and eliminated naturally.
PressureWave is the secret behind tattoo treatments with the PicoSure laser. By delivering the ideal energy to the skin, PicoSure efficiently shatters tattoo ink and allows your body to remove it naturally.
What should I expect?
Treatments for an average-sized tattoo typically take about 10 minutes, but larger or more complex tattoos can take longer.
Laser tattoo removal has been described as feeling similar to the actual tattooing process. PicoSure relies on pressure changes instead of just heat to break apart ink particles but some patients may feel some discomfort. Your treatment provider should be able to provide aids to make your experience more comfortable.
- Number of treatments needed is dependent on variables such as ink characteristics, size of the tattoo,
- Treatments typically occur every 6-8 weeks and your treatment provider will develop a treatment plan to meet your individual needs.
Patients and treatment providers have reported better clearance (disappearance) of tattoos with improved recovery time. You can expect excellent results with PicoSure.
