PicoSure Tattoo Removal

There are a lot of reasons to invest in a laser treatment for your skin. With possibilities ranging from tattoo removal to improving your skin’s overall appearance.

With PicoSure, the former is likely your reason for visiting. Let’s talk about how PicoSure can help your tattoo removal process.

What is PicoSure?

PicoSure is the first and only picosecond aesthetic laser that’s been cleared by the FDA to help remove tattoos and reveal clearer skin, faster.

The main benefit of using PicoSure instead of other tattoo removal laser procedures is the speed at which the tattoo is removed as well as its ability to target difficult-to-remove inks like blues and greens.

How does PicoSure work?

The picosecond technology works by administering really short picosecond pulses of energy into the affected area. This produces a photomechanical effect, otherwise known as a PressureWave, that targets the inked skin while not impacting unmarked skin.

This breaks up the ink, shattering it into tiny particles that your body can easily eliminate.

How much does PicoSure cost?

The cost of Picosure treatment ranges depending on how many sessions you need. Typically patients spend between $400 and $600. You will receive specific information on pricing at your initial consultation appointment.

What is PicoSure laser good for?

PicoSure is good and is primarily used for faster and more effective tattoo removal, however, it can also be used for benign pigmented lesions, acne scars, wrinkles, and as a skin revitalization treatment.

How long does it take for PicoSure to work?

The treatment session alone will only take up to 20 minutes depending on where you go.

With PicoSure, it can take anywhere from 2-5 treatment sessions to see lasting results depending on your skincare concern. The results will greatly vary from person to person, as we’re all unique in how our skin responds and heals.

Your provider will be able to better direct you to how many treatments will be necessary during your consultation. You can book yours with us here!

As with many laser treatments, typical side effects can occur. Most of these are very mild and will ease after a few days.

  • Darker pigmentation can expect light frosting (whitening) of the skin followed by it darkening afterward, then peeling off in the end
