Laser tattoo removal is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses laser technology to remove unwanted tattoos.
PicoSure® is the most advanced laser treatment for the safe and effective removal of unwanted tattoos. It works by delivering short bursts of focused laser energy to the pigmented area, without damaging the surrounding skin.
Tattoos are composed of large particles of ink suspended in the skin. Laser tattoo removal targets these ink particles and uses highly concentrated light waves to heat these particles, fragmenting them into smaller particles. The 755 nm wavelengths used by PicoSure® are able to target black, blue, and green tattoo inks, while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. The body’s immune system can then remove these smaller particles from the skin.
Did You Know?
Other tattoo removal techniques break large pigments into pebble-like granules. PicoSure®, on the other hand, shatters the ink into dust-like particles that can be eliminated by the body easier and quicker.
