Technique parameters of picosure tattoo removal:
Until the launch of PicoSure, Q-Switched lasers had been considered the gold standard for removing
tattoos. Q-switched laser treatments use thermal energy to heat up and break apart the ink particles.
Now with PicoSure, ultra-short pulses (one trillionth of a second in length!) hit the ink particle with a
pressure so great, the ink shatters into tiny dust-like particles. Because the particles are so small, they
are more readily absorbed and eliminated by the body. This can mean better clearance of the tattoo and
less treatments overall!
Every tattoo is unique and contains different colors and different volumes of ink. It’s important to speak
with a PicoSure doctor to find out how many treatments you may need, and what to expect.
Why picosure tattoo removal?
As the number of individuals with tattoos has increased, so has the need for improved tattoo removal
methods. Tattoo removal methods have evolved from potentially harmful treatments that often had painful
and sometimes permanent side effects to less harmful methods with good results. Until the introduction of
laser tattoo removal, people resorted to tattoo removal methods such as acid treatments, surgical excision,
PicoSure tattoo removal often requires fewer treatments than traditional Q-Switched lasers. Also, PicoSure
patients and doctors have reported better clearance (or “disappearance) of the tattoo with improved recovery
time. See for yourself! and contact a PicoSure Doctor today.
