The New Gold Standard For Laser Tattoo Removal: Preparing For PicoSure™

One of the most revolutionary aesthetic innovations to date is laser tattoo removal. Of course, facial fillers and Botox are also great because they get rid of unwanted wrinkles. However, the PicoSure™ Laser, for tattoo removal, gets rid of mistakes you feared were permanent from unwanted tattoos. We all consider getting a tattoo at some point in our life, but there are also some who take the tattoo leap and 20 years later, they regret the decision horribly.

Think about it this way, if it weren’t for laser tattoo removal, Angelina Jolie would still be looking at Billy Bob Thornton’s name tattooed on her arm.

How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

Laser tattoo removal has become a safe practice and is now less painful with the PicoSure™. The procedure is even less painful than when you initially got the tattoo. With laser tattoo removal, there’s no needle pulsing into your skin at rapid speeds, but rather it’s a laser that sends pressurized pulses of low energy into the pigments of your skin, breaking up the ink into such tiny particles that they aren’t noticeable anymore.

Tattoo ink appears like boulders under the microscope before the treatment and gets reduced to sand after the PicoSure™ laser treatment. Older lasers were only able to reduce the ink to rock sized particles and used considerably more energy that would result in scarring or burns. The PicoSure™ leaves your skin intact, and when the series of treatments are complete, smoother skin than you started with.
