tattoo and recommend a realistic treatment regime to help you
achieve the best results.
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
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

smallest areas of a tattoo can be removed without affecting the
I have permanent make-up. Can you remove
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
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
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
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
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
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.
