Laser tattoo removal has been described as feeling similar to the actual tattooing process. Our special PICOSURE relies on pressure changes instead of just heat to break apart ink particles. Our treatment providers are often able to provide aids to make the experience as comfortable as possible for survivors.
The number of treatments needed is dependent on variables such as ink characteristics, size of tattoo, location on body, and lifestyle habits.
Treatments typically occur every 6-8 weeks and our experts will develop a treatment plan to meet each individual's needs. Patients and treatment providers have reported better clearance (disappearance) of tattoos with improved recovery time. Survivors can expect excellent results with PICOSURE.
