Tattoo Removal Questions
What is PicoSure?
PicoSure is the latest advancement in laser technology for safe and effective tattoo removal. Remove tattoos faster with greater efficacy than ever before with the first and only picosecond laser!
How does laser tattoo removal work?
During the PicoSure treatment, laser energy is gently delivered to the tattoo, targeting the ink and shattering it into tiny particles. The particles are eliminated by the body natural processes resulting in a lightening of the tattoo ink.
What type of tattoos can be removed with PicoSure?
PicoSure can be used to remove a variety of tattoo colors and types. Difficult ink colors, such as blue and green, and previously treated tattoos can effectively be removed with PicoSure.
How many treatments will tattoo removal require?
With PicoSure, you will see greater results in fewer treatments. During the free consultation, a practitioner will evaluate your tattoo and recommend a realistic treatment regime to help you achieve the best results.
How often will I need treatments?
Typically it takes 4-6 weeks for the body to start breaking down the ink and even though the tattoo may appear healed, it is not. Getting treated sooner than that will not remove the tattoo any quicker and can also put you at risk for scarring.
Will I see results after the first treatment?
Every patient and tattoo responds differently. Some patients see improved clearance after the first treatment, while others may take a few treatments to see results. Following the recommended post treatment protocol will likely improve the results and reduce the chance of adverse events.
What are the limitations after treatment?
We recommend that patients limit their physical activity for the first 24-48 hours to avoid irritation or harm to the treated area. After that, patients can go about their days normally, however sun exposure should be limited until the treatment area is completely healed.
Can I have only a portion of my tattoo removed?
Yes, PicoSure delivers energy so precisely that even the
smallest areas of a tattoo
can be removed without affecting the surrounding tattoo.
I have permanent make-up. Can you remove it?
We do not recommend treating permanent make-up as there are several risks associated with it. Some cosmetic inks have metallic bases and tend to turn black when treated with the laser. Once this darkening occurs, it takes much longer to remove.
Will I experience any complications from tattoo removal with PicoSure?
There have been no adverse events reported from PicoSure
treatments. It is important to take care of your tattoo and be
compliant with aftercare instructions
provided by your practitioner to avoid any unexpected issues.
How much does it cost to have PicoSure tattoo removal?
The cost of laser tattoo removal depends on several factors, including the size of tattoo and the number of treatments it will require. After your consultation, the practitioner will provide you a price estimate for the treatment series.
Can I lighten the tattoo to have another one put on top?
Tattoos can be lightened in preparation for a cover-up tattoo. We recommend that you wait six weeks between your last treatment and when you have the new tattoo completed.
Does tattoo removal hurt?
This procedure is slightly more uncomfortable than getting a tattoo, however it is very fast. Most treatments take between 25-60 seconds. If needed, patients can request numbing cream to apply 30 minutes before the treatment.
Will I blister and scab afterwards?
Although blisters and scabs can be a normal response to tattoo removal, most patients will not experience them. In the case that you do, it is important to not pop or pick at them. If the blister pops on its own, keep the skin over it covered with a healing ointment and gauze to promote healing and prevent scarring.
Does insurance cover tattoo removal treatments?
Most insurance companies will not cover laser tattoo removal since it is considered an elective cosmetic procedure. For your convenience, we have payment plans and installment options that we would be happy to speak with you about during the consultation.
I got my tattoo one week ago. Can I have it removed right now?
Tattoo regret can happen at any time, sometimes as early as the day after a tattoo is completed. Because your skin needs time to heal from the tattoo procedure, we require each patient to wait at least six weeks to start the removal process.
Picosecond vs. Nanosecond Technology
Traditional nanosecond lasers predominately rely on photothermal action, delivering heat to the pigment and surrounding tissue. PicoSure takes advantage of PressureWave Technology to shatter the target ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body.
Ultra-short Pulse Duration Is the
Picosecond pulse width is 100X shorter than nanosecond technology.Only ultrashort pulse durations trigger photomechanical effect.With this short pulse width, half the fluence is required compared to Q-Switched nanosecond lasers.
