At one point in your life, getting a tattoo may have seemed like the best idea in the world. Now, you may be second guessing that idea. The tattooed name of an ex, a symbol of a previous affiliation, or a faded, warped tattoo could be causing you painful regret every time you see it. Tattoos can even pose difficulties for your relationships or chosen career. Regardless of your reason for getting a tattoo in the first place, there is an effective, new treatment for tattoo removal called PicoSure®. PicoSure® tattoo removal can successfully remove your tattoos to eliminate the “permanent” markings from your skin.
How PicoSure® Works
PicoSure® is a new technology that delivers laser energy pulses directly into the skin at lightning speeds to remove the tattoo ink. The rapid pulses of laser energy force the tattoo ink to break into minuscule pieces. With the ink dispersed, your body can quickly absorb the ink particles and flush them out naturally, leaving you with smooth, unmarked skin.
Advantages Over Other Tattoo Removal Treatments
Because of the nature of tattoo ink, tattoo removal usually requires multiple treatment sessions to eliminate even a fraction of the tattoo pigment. In comparison to other tattoo removal methods such as Q-Switched lasers, PicoSure® treatment is the superior choice because it has more success and requires fewer treatment sessions. While several treatment sessions may still be necessary, each PicoSure® treatment causes less pain and has a shorter recovery than previous forms of tattoo removal. Indeed, tattoo removal treatment with PicoSure® is far less painful than getting a tattoo in the first place. Results from PicoSure® treatment leave you with smooth, unmarred skin and no more regrets.
