About Picosure Tattoo Removal
At Incredible Veins Skin & Body, we use the revolutionary Picosure Laser for tattoo removal. Picosure offers many advantages over other types of laser treatments, including:
- Faster pulses that lead to better disruption of the ink
- Ability to treat even the most stubborn ink colors
- Can often treat tattoos not effectively treated with other laser devices
- More complete elimination of ink, often in fewer treatments
The rapid pulses of the Picosure Laser actually shatter the ink particles so they can be eliminated by the body. You will see your body art fade with every treatment session until it is nearly undetectable. The key to enjoying ink-free skin before your wedding is providing enough time for the procedure to work completely.
How Many Treatments?
The number of treatments you will need to remove your tattoo depends on a number of factors:
- Skin type and tone
- Location of the tattoo
- Amount of ink used
- Whether the tattoo was professional or homemade
- The specific colors of ink used
- The age of the tattoo
Because there are so many factors that play into how well your tattoo will respond to treatment, it can be very difficult to predict exactly how many treatment sessions you will need to achieve your desired results. Picosure tends to require fewer treatments than other types of laser tattoo removal, but you could still be looking at up to 10 treatments to fully eliminate your body ink.
As far as spacing your laser treatments, we generally recommend you aim for six weeks between procedures. This gives your skin ample time to heal and for us to see how much of the pigment was eradicated with the previous treatment. As the tattoo begins to fade significantly, we may even move your treatments to eight-week intervals to avoid overtaxing the skin in the treatment area.
Schedule Your Picosure Treatments Now
Tattoo removal is safer and easier than ever before, but it is not a quick fix for unwanted body art. If you are hoping to eliminate your ink before your wedding day, make sure you give yourself a number of months prior to the date to work on fading that tat from view. At Incredible Veins Skin & Body, we offer package deals on our laser tattoo removal to make the extended process more affordable as well.
