The pain for tattoo removal now is comparable to the pain of getting a tattoo. Heat and pressure are used to completely break down the pigments in the tattoo. While this should not hurt a lot, there are pain relief aids you can get from our staff to minimize any pain you might feel.
Previous types of tattoo removal took a significant amount of time even for smaller tattoos. Now, the latest picosecond technology enables tattoos to be removed much faster and leaves a lot less that can be seen at the end after just a few treatments. You can work with our staff to determine a plan to completely remove the tattoo as quickly as possible. Picosecond technology can significantly impact the treatment of tattoos, particularly when targeting green inks, which used to be some of the hardest colors to treat. Black colors can also be cleared much faster with this laser, further saving valuable time for you. PicoSure tattoo removal often requires fewer treatments than traditional Q-Switched lasers. Also, PicoSure patients and doctors have reported better clearance (or “disappearance) of the tattoo in twice the time with improved recovery time.
