Erase Unwanted Ink & Clear Your Skin

Laser tattoo removal is a non-invasive procedure that uses the cutting-edge PicoSure Laser to break up tattoo ink particles beneath the skin. Our advanced picosecond laser technology targets the ink particles without harming the surrounding skin, causing them to shatter into smaller fragments. These tiny fragments are then naturally removed by the body’s immune system. Over several sessions, the tattoo fades away, leaving the skin looking clear and natural. The process is safe and effective and can help you achieve the clear skin you desire.

Laser Tattoo Removal Corrects:

  • Faded or outdated tattoos
  • Poorly executed or uneven tattoos
  • Tattoos with misspelled or incorrect words
  • Tattoos with cultural or emotional significance that no longer apply
  • Tattoos that negatively impact career opportunities or personal relationships
  • Tattoos that have become blurred or distorted over time
  • Tattoos that have caused an allergic reaction or infection
  • Tattoos that were obtained under duress or coercion
  • Tattoos that no longer represent your personality

Destroying Unwanted Ink In Picoseconds

The PicoSure Laser is a cutting-edge picosecond technology for laser tattoo removal. Unlike traditional lasers with nanosecond pulses, PicoSure operates in picoseconds, one trillionth of a second. This ultra-short pulse duration delivers laser energy so rapidly that it creates a photomechanical effect. It shatters tattoo ink into minuscule fragments without excessive heat, making it highly effective and safe. The body’s immune system naturally eliminates these fragments, offering unparalleled results with minimal discomfort and no scarring.

The Science Behind Laser Tattoo Removal

Laser tattoo removal uses high-powered PicoSure Laser to target the ink pigments embedded in the skin. The laser emits ultra-short pulses of light absorbed by the ink particles, causing them to heat up and shatter into tiny fragments. These fragments are then naturally removed by the body’s immune system over time. Different wavelengths of laser light are used to target specific colors of ink, and multiple sessions are required to fully remove the tattoo.

Your Complete Laser Tattoo Removal Experience

To prepare for your laser tattoo removal, it is important to follow some simple steps. Avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, and self-tanners for four weeks before treatment. You should also shave the treated area and avoid using creams or lotions on the day of the procedure. Stay hydrated and dress comfortably.

You will be asked to wear protective eyewear during your laser tattoo removal session. The medical professional will use a handheld device to target the ink particles with short pulses of laser light. You may experience some discomfort, but most patients find the procedure tolerable. The procedure usually concludes within 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the tattoo size.

Side Effects
After your laser tattoo removal session, you may experience temporary side effects, such as redness, swelling, and blistering. These side effects are normal and should subside within a few days. In rare cases, scarring or changes in skin texture may occur. Your medical professional will provide detailed aftercare instructions to minimize side effects and promote healing.

After your laser tattoo removal session, little to no downtime or recovery is required. You can resume normal activities immediately. However, avoiding sun exposure and keeping the treated area clean and moisturized can speed up healing.

The laser tattoo removal results will be visible after a few sessions, with each session providing progressive fading. The number of sessions required depends on the size, color, and age of the tattoo. The results are permanent; once the tattoo is removed, it will not return.

The number of treatments needed for optimal results varies depending on the size, color, and age of the tattoo. On average, it takes 6-10 sessions to achieve optimal results. The sessions are scheduled every 4-6 weeks to allow for the body’s natural healing process to take place.
