Tattoos are often seen as a visual expression of your identity, personality or interests. However, as the years go by these will often change and adjust, and so may your opinions on your body ink. If your tattoo no longer represents who you are and you wish to have it removed and replaced for something new, the solution is PicoSure laser tattoo removal.
PicoSure is the world’s first, fastest and most effective picosecond aesthetic laser for the removal of tattoos. Our unparalleled PressureWave ™ technology is FDA cleared and TGA listed and is proven to treat a spectrum of ink colours on all skin types.
PicoSure laser tattoo removal treatments work by delivering ultra-short pulse bursts of energy into the skin that shatter the tattoo ink into tiny dust like particles, so that the body can safely and easily eliminate the ink. This also ensures that less heat is being generated by the laser and transferred to the skin, reducing the chances of burning, bleeding or discolouration and resulting in less pain and recovery time.
Every tattoo removal process will vary from person to person, as some tattoo inks are harder to remove than others. The number of treatments required to successfully remove your tattoo will be dependent on the age of the tattoo, the size, the colour pigment and the type of ink used. The location of the tattoo on the body will also need to be taken into consideration. Despite these variables, on average, patients will tend to start to see results after their second or third treatment, with minimal downtime required.
After your tattoo removal treatments, it is important that you are properly caring for your skin to ensure it heals properly. Keep the area clean and dry whilst also applying Vitamin E cream to instigate skin renewal. For the next few weeks after the treatment, it is best to avoid direct sun exposure to prevent damaging your skin further. Pools and saunas should also be avoided to lessen chances of infection and if you are unsure or if there are any abnormal developments, always contact your laser technician.
