Breakthrough Technology for Effective Tattoo Removal
For many centuries, tattooing has evolved into a popular way to show individuality, artistic expression, or independence. Research shows that one in five US adults (21%) have a tattoo ¹, including over half (60%) of all women over the age of 18 ².
However, there is also an increasing need for improved tattoo removal methods. Today’s aesthetic lasers offer a proven alternative for safer and more effective ink removal. Lasers remove the ink by targeting ink’s pigment with a high intensity light beam causing it break up into smaller molecules. The ink is then absorbed by the natural bodily processes, fading the tattoo until it is no longer visible. For more than 20 years, Q-Switched lasers have been considered the standard technique for removing tattoos and skin spots.
Now with PicoSure, the ultra-short pulses create a photomechanical impact, shattering the ink or pigment into tiny dust-like particles. Because the particles are so small, they are more easily absorbed and eliminated through the body’s natural processes. This means that with each PicoSure treatment, the tattoo will lighten and clear faster than ever before.
