Find out how long which tattoo removal systems we have used in our clinic and why our 16 years of experience matters.
The Picosure laser tattoo removal system is a major breakthrough in laser tattoo removal technology in 20 years because:
• the laser is a much faster pulse than traditional Q Switched lasers which means that it is much quicker to remove tattoos than ever before – upto half the number of treatments previously needed
• the laser is much better at destroying ink particles
• removes tattoo ink much faster and most colours
• it is much more effective for blue and green tattoo
• will usually clear even resistant tattoos that have stopped fading with other lasers to clear the area even more than ever before.
How rapid PIcosure Laser Tattoo removal works
Laser tattoo removal works by causing the ink in the skin to break apart. These smaller ink particles are then removed by the body’s immune system. The tattoo fades gradually with each treatment as you cannot remove all the ink in one go. The Picosure is much more through about breaking the ink particles and thus much more effective for tattoo removal.
Picosure tattoo removal is currently the best tattoo removal system that is around and generally the number of treatments are 2-3 times LESS than other treatments. As the only clinic that carries the Picosure laser call our clinic to find out more how you can get that tattoo removed quicker than ever before.
Picosure Tattoo Removal
Clients often described laser tattoo removal as ” a rubber band snapping on the skin”. We do our best to minimize any pain or discomfort during the treatment.
Every tattoo is different and the amount of time it takes to remove the tattoo depends on the ink colour, depth of the tattoo and where it is placed as well as your skin type and your immune system. At your consultation we can estimate how many treatments you may need but with the new Picosure laser your number of treatments will be less by 2-3 times than other laser treatments.
Treatments are spaced 4-6 weeks apart to give your immune system time to clear the ink. As the ink clears longer times between treatments may be advised.
During laser treatment you tattoo may turn white briefly and then there may be some swelling and redness for a few hours. Detailed instructions are given at your appointment
The type of laser used for tattoo removal does not typically leave scars although there is always a small chance of this. You should inform us if you have a tendency to form abnormal scars or keloids. Occasionally there may be darkening or lightening of the skin ( hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation) due to the laser treatment.
