• 5 Different Ways the PicoSure Laser Can Benefit You

    on Feb 11th, 2019

Are you really regretting that huge back tattoo you got a few years ago? Or maybe in a moment of joy and spontaneity you decided to get a portrait of your infant son on the front of your chest. Yikes! Luckily, you’re not the only one who has tattoo regret. According to the respected Harris Poll, nearly 30% of people in the U.S. now have at least one tattoo and nearly 25% regret it. That rate has nearly doubled in the past five years, perhaps thanks to social media's amazing ability to normalize some really outrageous tattoo choices.

We all make mistakes, but there are some mistakes you don't have to live with no matter how permanent they may seem. PicoSure safely, effectively, and affordably removes tattoos and other skin blemishes, without excessive pain or skin damage. Let's explore the amazing benefits of this state-of-the-art laser tattoo removal system.

1. You get an FDA-cleared treatment

The FDA applies stringent guidelines to approve a medical device because they have to check for potential side effect claims and patient satisfaction rates. The FDA has determined that PicoSure is both safe and effective for:

Using non-FDA-cleared methods for these treatments puts you at risk, but with PicoSure, from the trusted aesthetics laser brand CynoSure, you can rest assured that risks are minimal and benefits verifiable.

PicoSure may also reduce the appearance of:

2. It's surprisingly gentle

You may have seen traditional tattoo removal images before where the skin is left severely blistered and burned. PicoSure, on the other hand, is designed to maximize results while minimizing discomfort and eliminating long-term skin damage. Most people say it feels a lot like someone is popping a rubber band against their skin over and over, which most people consider very tolerable for the short time it takes to complete the procedure.

3. It's quick

A session only lasts around ten minutes. In most cases, that's all you need, however, if you have a large tattoo, deep scar, or other major imperfection, you may need multiple sessions. Dr. Burger discusses how many sessions you need before he gets started so you always know what to expect.

4. It's completely non-invasive

Dr. Burger trusts PicoSure because this state-of-the-art device precisely targets lesions, pigments, and scar tissue, while leaving skin looking like you have a mild sunburn for a day or two.

5. Feel great about your skin

Are you embarrassed by that huge dragon tattoo you got in college? Maybe your brutal acne destroyed your teenage years and now you're left with the constant reminder. PicoSure addresses a wide variety of skin blemishes and tattoo mistakes, leaving you feeling more confident in your skin.

With PicoSure, tattoo and scar removal are permanent, so once you’ve undergone the treatment, you won't have to worry about the way you look ever again. You can even use PicoSure to treat wrinkles or remove pigment from your skin – just know that these conditions may return slowly as your skin continues to age. Since PicoSure is so affordable and gentle, you can simply have another treatment done when the time comes.

How does PicoSure work?

Unlike traditional laser tattoo removal, PicoSure uses a unique light wavelength combined with a specialized lens, which converts the laser into a 20X denser light. This light puts pressure on the targeted area, which activates your own body's natural healing function. In tattoo removal, this pressure effectively and significantly speeds up the rate at which your own body normally degrades the tattoo ink, all while increasing collagen and elastin production to restore the appearance of your skin. It does all of this without burning the skin (as would be the case with a traditional laser).
