Tattoo Removal Made Quick and Easy with PicoSure

Tattoo removal is often known as a long, drawn out, and complicated process. In fact, many patients live with tattoos they regret because the alternative- having them removed, sounds painful and expensive. With the PicoSure Laser tattoo removal is much quicker and more comfortable, making it possible to almost completely erase tattoos that you no longer wish to wear.

Tattoo Removal

Tattoo removal means reaching the ink that has been embedded into the skin, breaking it up, and removing it or allowing the body to reabsorb it. The process can be tedious and is often ineffective. The variety of colors make it difficult to target the ink. Sometimes a tattoo can be faded, but not completely removed. PicoSure uses new technology that makes targeting the ink easier and more effective, resulting in a more thorough removal of the ink.

sends ultra-short pulses of photomechanical heat energy into the skin. The pulses penetrate to the layer where the ink is deposited, breaking it into small particles, which are, over time, reabsorbed and excreted through the body’s natural systems. Complete ink clearance can be expected in just a few treatments. Each treatment lasts about ten minutes, and for an average hand-sized tattoo, Dr. O’Neill estimates 3-4 treatments are necessary for removal.

Traditional Charleston tattoo removal treatments relied on more invasive, less targeted measures that caused more cellular damage, resulting in a greater chance of scarring and infection, and a longer healing time and more pain. The PicoSure system offers a quicker, easier alternative to laser tattoo removal.
