Do you have an unwanted tattoo? Then consider a PicoSure™ treatment with the experts at Laser Skin Solutions Jacksonville in Jacksonville Beach. PicoSure™ delivers thermal energy with short pulses that breaks up green, teal, and blue tattoos into tiny particles using your body’s waste eliminating functions to eliminate the ink fragments naturally.
What Is PicoSure™?
PicoSure™ is an innovative laser therapy that effectively removes unwanted tattoos, discoloration, and age spots. The laser delivers bursts of energy that shatters the tattoo pigment without damaging the surrounding tissue. This laser works more effectively than the lasers used in the past.
How a PicoSure™ Treatment Works for Tattoo Removal
During a PicoSure™ treatment session, the PressureWave™ technology delivers short, powerful pulses of energy that targets the ink particles in the tattoo – the vibrations are so fast and powerful that they disintegrate into fine dust-like particles. The body’s lymphatic system absorbs the granules and eliminates them naturally.
How Many Laser Tattoo Removal Treatments Are Required to Remove a Tattoo?
The new PicoSure™ treatment drastically reduces the number of laser sessions needed to remove a tattoo. Patients usually require half the treatment sessions (only 4-7 sessions) than the traditional amount. The full process is also completed in less time, only 4-8 months instead of the traditional 12-18 months. Our plans are specific to fit each of our client’s needs.
Will the Tattoo Disappear Entirely?
While each case is unique, many of our patients achieve more than 95% fading from the treatment. Your level of tattoo removal depends on the tattoo ink and the amount used. While we are confident that your tattoo will be removed in less time, we cannot predict the exact outcome in any given situation.
What Is the Downtime?
PicoSure™ is considered a lunchtime procedure because there is minimal downtime. Patients usually continue their normal routine after their session. You may notice a little redness or mild swelling after the process, but it usually disappears in less than 12 hours. PicoSure™ is more comfortable than a Q-switched laser, and our patients are surprised at the efficiency and comfort of our treatment.
