Let’s face it: We’ve all done things we regret. A certain tattoo is one of those decisions that you may wish you could take back. With PicoSure laser treatment offered by Dr. Fugo, you can remove ink of all colors safely and effectively.
What is PicoSure Tattoo Removal?
This laser treatment is non-surgical, fast and nearly painless. It offers a short treatment time and effective removal. Unlike old forms of laser removal, PicoSure removes not only black ink but any color.
The handheld device emits pulsed picosecond energy that breaks apart selected ink deposits. Over time, your body metabolizes and expels the ink deposits, leaving the tattoo much lighter and often gone completely.
PicoSure is incredibly fast and efficient. Because the pulses are so fast, the laser doesn’t produce unnecessary heat – an issue with older laser technologies. Your skin is protected from harm because of the efficient heat output.
The PicoSure Treatment Process
The laser skin treatment goes like so:
- A topical anesthetic is applied to your skin so you’ll be as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure
- The treatment itself may take 15-20 minutes, depending on the size and number of tattoos
- You typically feel light stinging sensation
- We’ll place a bandage on the treatment area and you’ll leave with complete instructions for follow-up and care
Most tattoos require 3-6 such sessions before the ink is fully eliminated. The appointments are spaced roughly 6 weeks apart. This number of treatments is a major advantage of older laser technologies, some of which could require double that number of visits.
There’s no downtime afterward, although you’ll need to avoid sun exposure on the treated sight. Mild swelling in the treatment area is normal and the skin may feel sensitive. You may have blistering of the tattoo site. These effects will fade in a few days.
Enjoy the confidence of ridding yourself of a tattoo you no longer want on your body. You deserve to feel good about your appearance. PicoSure offers the opportunity to undo what was once thought irrevocably permanent.

Liposuction permanently removes select fat cells in a specific treatment area, such as the abdomen, back, hips or thighs. There are many reasons a person may consider liposuction, with the most common being:
- Stubborn fat that resists diet and exercise
- Areas of the physique the patient wants to further sculpt and define
- Bulging pockets of fat that have developed as you’ve grown older
Overall weight loss is not a reason to consider liposuction; the procedure does not work in that way. Instead, it acts as a way to sculpt and fine tune your body by removing isolated fat. It does not lead to weight loss. Candidates for liposuction oftentimes accomplish a weight loss goal first, and then get liposuction as a final touch. Other types of candidates may have never been overweight and may be in great shape, but find that small areas on their bodies are puffy despite their fitness.
How Does it Work?
During this body procedure, a thin tube called a cannula is used to break apart fat and suction it away. One of the great things about this procedure is that only the smallest of incisions are used. The cannula does not require large incisions for insertion. Once the incisions heal over, the resulting scars will be very discreet. Most liposuction patients are able to hide them beneath clothing, lingerie, swimsuits, etc.
The bottom line in our mind is that you are an individual with individual aspirations and goals. Dr. Jonathan Fugo wants to help you find the cosmetic procedure that will be the right match, and so he looks forward to discussing liposuction and your goals during a one-on-one consultation at our office. With many years of experience and a passion for creating great results, Dr. Fugo is personally committed to helping you look and feel your absolute best.
