What is PICOSure Laser Tattoo Removal?
Even if you’ve tried tattoo removal in the past and been unsuccessful, PICOSure Laser technology can erase your unwanted tattoos easily and painlessly.
At the Raby Institute, our PICOSure Laser system is FDA-approved and highly effective. Where earlier tattoo removal systems used thermal lasers to heat up and destroy the ink, the PICOSure laser uses ultra-short (one trillionth of a second) pure energy pulses. These pulses hit the tattoo ink below the surface with enough force to shatter the ink into dust-like particles. The body can then rely on natural processes to safely absorb and eliminate the ink.
Will PICOSure Laser Tattoo Removal Work for Me?
It should. Every patient and every tattoo responds differently. The number of laser treatments needed for complete removal will depend on such variables as ink type, size of tattoo, location on the body, type of laser used, and so on. Typically, we find that it takes 4-to-8 weeks for the body to completely absorb and eliminate ink particles.
PicoSure has been proven successful in treating even dark blue and green inks, as well as previously treated, stubborn tattoos that resisted elimination before. We can also lighten tattoos in preparation for a cover-up tattoo. The experience of laser tattoo removal has been compared to the sensation of getting a tattoo, except much briefer.
During your consultation, a practitioner will evaluate your tattoo and recommend a regimen to help you achieve best results.
