Nearly half of all adults in the United States have at least one tattoo. Getting tattoos may seem like a good idea at the time, but you may have outgrown them and some of the reasons you got them in the first place. If that’s your situation and you live near Vienna, Arlington, and Fairfax, or Washington, D.C., UnTattooU can help.
Tattoos may be meant to be permanent, and in the past, you’d have to live with the regret of an unwanted tattoo. The good news is with today’s technology that’s no longer the case. With PicoSure laser technology by CynosureⓇ you can quickly and easily say goodbye to unwanted tattoos for good. Here’s what you should know.
Consult a professional
Lead by Dr. Scott Burger, the team at UnTattooU offers safe, effective, and virtually pain-free tattoo removal using the latest advancements in laser technology. There’s no substitution for working with a medical professional who is specially trained to provide a high level of care. You can trust that you’ll receive expert application for maximum precision and comfort. The team uses tattoo removal technology that minimizes the amount of heat administered to the skin and limits damage to the skin surrounding the tattoo.
The PicoSure difference
PicoSure is the first FDA-approved breakthrough in laser tattoo removal technology. The system uses a short-pulse laser that sends out ultra-short bursts of energy to the targeted area to break up ink. While traditional lasers rely only on heat, the PicoSure laser sends out heat and light waves, attacking the ink pigments on two levels.
Conventional laser tattoo removal technology generally requires 10 or more sessions to remove a tattoo and may not even remove it completely. With PicoSure’s dual-energy technology, you can say goodbye to that unwanted tattoo in as few as 3-5 treatments, depending on the size, colors, and density of the tattoo, as well as your skin type.
The key to PicoSure’s effectiveness is its ability to break the tattoo ink into extremely tiny particles that your body can easily and naturally remove.
The PicoSure laser has the quickest tattoo removal time in the industry. It has a number of other advantages, including:
- Fewer sessions
- Lower risk of damage to the skin
- Dramatic results in a single treatment
- Lower overall cost
- Removes all ink types
- Effective on all skin tones
What to expect at your appointment
PicoSure laser tattoo removal sessions are quick and convenient. In as little as 10 minutes (for the average-sized tattoo) you’ll be on your way to eliminating your unwanted tattoos.
Your provider at UnTattooU ensures that you remain comfortable as they evaluate your tattoo and put together the most appropriate treatment plan. In general, sessions are scheduled 4-8 weeks apart to give the body time to go to work eliminating the ink particles.
