Like many, you may have made some poor decisions in your early years and got a questionable tattoo, or you may have had a great tattoo in mind, but your tattoo artist did not quite give you the results you were looking for. Sure, these are regrettable, but they don’t have to be something you have no choice but to live with. At Neighborhood Wellness Clinic, we use the PicoSure® laser tattoo removal system to effectively remove all types of tattoos. This means that your tattoos no longer have to be permanent. They can be removed so efficiently that it looks like they were never there in the first place.
PicoSure® is the only laser tattoo removal procedure that uses advanced PressureWave technology. Besides, it is also the first picosecond laser in the world. Not only is it safe but also highly effective, even more so than other traditional lasers, and requires no downtime. By delivering special energy that is meant specifically for targeting the ink underneath your skin, this laser is capable of shattering the ink particles into small fragments, allowing your body to get rid of these tiny ink fragments naturally. This is a quick and straightforward way of describing just how PicoSure® works.
The number of sessions you receive depends upon your skin type, the location of the tattoo, ink colors, the amount of ink used, and the tattoo layering. On top of these, other personal factors such as your age and the condition of your physical health, whether you have pre-existing scarring, and how strong your immune system is will weigh in on the number of sessions you need to get rid of your tattoo completely.
When it comes to laser tattoo removal, there is a common misconception that the tattoo is removed due to the laser burning it. However, the truth is that your body itself does the actual ink removal; the laser turns the ink particles into fragments small enough for the body to get rid of them naturally. The procedure for laser tattoo removal does not take long. For an average-sized tattoo, it usually takes approximately ten minutes. If your tattoo is large and has an intricate design, it will take longer than this. We will use the PicoSure® laser to send out light energy to your skin. The laser wavelengths are sent out in short and sharp bursts, shattering the ink particles into small, dust-like particles.
The PicoSure® laser is more effective than other alternative options because it breaks the ink apart more successfully, making the particles much smaller. This makes it easier for the body’s immune and lymphatic systems to get rid of them within a few weeks. Since the tattoo ink is no longer present underneath your skin, the tattoo naturally disappears. Another reason this laser is so effective is that it uses PressureWave® technology. This enables our specialists to send just the right amount of light energy into the skin, efficiently breaking down the ink particles. Many people have the assumption that laser tattoo removal is a painful experience. While this is not entirely untrue, the procedure is not unbearable.
PicoSure® laser is more effective than traditional laser tattoo removal because it finely breaks down the ink particles.
