Traditional nanosecond lasers mainly utilize photothermal action, delivering heat to the pigment and surrounding tissue.
PicoSure utilizes PressureWave technology to shatter the ink into particles small enough that they can easily be removed by the body.
The PicoSure laser from CynoSure is a revolutionary laser tattoo removal system that can remove virtually any tattoo with less time, pain, and damage to surrounding tissues than other methods or tools.
The PicoSure laser is a short-pulse laser, which means that it sends out quick, targeted bursts of laser energy. When directed at an existing tattoo, these rapid pulses break up the tattoo ink into tiny particles. The body’s lymphatic system absorbs these particles and eliminates them from the body naturally.
The PicoSure laser is specially designed to minimize the amount of heat administered to the skin during tattoo removal. In addition, UnTattooU has perfected a method of tattoo removal that is virtually pain-free. Clients who choose UnTattooU for laser tattoo removal report very little discomfort during treatment.
UnTattooU can remove most modern tattoos with 4-10 treatment sessions. However, the number of sessions will vary based on the color of the ink, size of the tattoo, and other factors. Clients interested in tattoo removal can find out how many sessions of treatment will be necessary by scheduling a free tattoo consultation.
Each laser tattoo removal treatment session lasts for approximately 10 minutes. However, some sessions may be shorter or longer.
Laser tattoo removal is considered generally safe. Treatment with PicoSure minimizes the amount of heat administered to the skin during tattoo removal. This limits damage to surrounding tissues considerably, making PicoSure a safer option than many other tattoo removal methods.
With the PicoSure laser, UnTattooU can remove almost any tattoo, including those with blue and green inks that were more difficult to remove in the past. UnTattooU can also remove recalcitrant tattoos that weren’t successfully removed with previous treatment.
Once UnTattooU has removed a tattoo, the change is permanent. The body removes the ink through its lymphatic system and the tattoo is eliminated entirely.
