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.
