About PicoSure® Tattoo Removal
Prior to PicoSure® technology, traditional nanosecond lasers had been considered the gold standard for removing tattoos. Nanosecond laser treatments utilize photothermal energy to heat and break apart the ink particles. With PicoSure®, Picosecond technology generates ultra-short pulses aimed at the ink particle with a pressure so great, the ink shatters into dust-like particles. The tiny size of the particles enables them to more readily absorbed and eliminated by the body. Even dark, stubborn blue and green inks, as well as previously-treated tattoos can be removed.
Prior to Treatment
Prior to treatment you will be scheduled for a complimentary consultation with a SKIN specialist who will perform a detailed skin analysis, and discuss general health history before recommending a customized treatment program. As the number of required treatments varies from patient to patient, a price quote will be given during consultation.
The treatment area is cleansed and photographed. A topical numbing gel will be applied to the targeted area to enhance patient comfort during the treatment. During the procedure the laser hand piece glides over the treatment area, the laser pulses are fired very rapidly, and a stinging sensation is felt. Clients often report the sensation to be similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. Some areas are more sensitive to treatment than other areas. Following treatment, an antibacterial ointment is applied to the area and which is then covered with a protective dressing.
Following the treatment patients may experience redness, mild swelling, tenderness, crusting, a sunburned sensation, or itching. The treated area should be kept clean with continued application of the ointment. A shower can be taken the next day, although the treated area should not be scrubbed. To increase the benefits of this procedure and avoid complications, you should strictly avoid sun exposure and tanning prior to and during your treatment period.
Patients will notice a gradual fading of their tattoo. The number of treatments required depends on the age, colour, size, location and depth of the tattoo. Treatments are usually performed 6-12 weeks apart to allow your system to remove the maximum amount of pigment between sessions. Tattoo lightening may continue for several months after the last treatment session.
