Tattoo removal has been around as long as body ink. And just how the tattooing process was once a crude one, removal too was cringe worthy, perhaps more so when you consider the antiquated methods. Heck, even today some services continue to use trichloroacetic acid to remove tattoos.

Top 3 Advantages of PicoSure Laser Tattoo Removal

1. It Works With Your Body to Naturally Remove the Tattoo

Your lymphatic system is a key player in this process. We’ll spare you the biology lesson with a simple statement about what this important network of tissues and organs does – it helps rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. And in this case, ink. But how?

PicoSure PressureWave pulses are so rapid that they initiate a change in pressure that breaks ink apart into micoscopic dust-like particles. These particles are then absorbed by the lymphatic system and eliminated naturally. Wouldn’t you rather have your body and its natural defenses work with you as opposed to attacking it with invasive methods such as dermabrasion, salt scrubbing, cryosurgery, excision, and of course…acid? Of course you would.

2. It Can Remove Stubborn Colors

In the past, removal may have been effective for basic grey-scale tattoos with varying levels of shading, but when it came to deep pigments such as black, blue and green something was always left behind. PicoSure laser tattoo removal however, can break up the most difficult and stubborn inks leaving your with skin nearly as clear as a baby’s bum.

3. You Can Do it On Your Lunch Break

Carrying over from the point above, the lightning speed of PicoSure laser technology allows a specialist to treat your tattoo in 10-minutes or more, depending upon the size and colors of the area being treated. Of course, the work is not completed in just one session. Several visits are required to rid your skin of that pesky bad tattoo, with each spaced apart by six to eight weeks to allow for the lymphatic system to do its good work. But at just a few double-digit minutes per visit, you can hit our studio during your lunch break every other month until your skin is free from unwanted ink. Your treatment provider will create a treatment plan specific to your personal needs.
