Tattoo Removal

Body ink regret? Decorative tattoos are an ancient ritual that has become very widely practiced in our culture. While they are often points of pride, sometimes a tattoo is no longer representative of a person’s views or reminds them of a place, person, or time they’d rather forget.

We use the PicoWay laser for tattoo removal. PicoWay is a high power lower with ultra short pulses that shatters tattoo ink, but leaves the outer layer of the skin intact. PicoWay treats a wide range of tattoo colors across a broad range of skin types. Over a series of brief treatments, PicoWay can eliminate most tattoos. That’s why PicoWay is the tattoo removal laser of choice by the nation’s leading tattoo removal provider network, Invisible Ink Tattoo Removers.

How It Works

PicoWay is a high power lower with ultra short pulses that shatters tattoo ink, but leaves the outer layer of the skin intact. PicoWay treats a wide range of tattoo colors across a broad range of skin types. Over a series of brief treatments, PicoWay can eliminate most tattoos. That’s why PicoWay is the tattoo removal laser of choice by the nation’s leading tattoo removal provider network, Invisible Ink Tattoo Removers.

What To Expect

The procedure takes anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes depending on the size of the tattoo to be treated. The laser is traced over the tattoo. The skin in the treatment site turns an whitish color and within 10 minutes becomes purple. It is not uncommon to have pinpoint bleeding associated with the treatment. A dressing is applied to the area. Within a couple of days, a crust will develop that will last for approximately 5-10 days. Care must be taken not to pick at the area.

The impact of the energy from the pulse of light is similar to the snap of a thin rubber band against your skin. After the treatment a mild burning sensation may persist in the treatment site for 1-3 hours. The majority of clients can tolerate the procedure without anesthesia; however, a topical or injectable anesthetic is available.

Almost all tattoos can be removed without any scar or skin changes. In rare cases, pigmentation changes, scarring and texture changes may occur.

Results

ypically, multiple treatment sessions are needed. As an example, a clinical study of benign pigmented lesions found that after 2 treatments, 87% of lesions had a least good response (>50% had a good response or better).

Recommended Sessions

On average, amateur tattoos can take anywhere from 2 to 6 treatments and professional tattoos 6 to 10 treatments. The number of treatments depends on the amount, type and depth of the ink in the skin and can be more than 10.

Possible Downtime

  • No downtime expected

After Treatment Care

Immediately following treatment, an ice pack may be applied to soothe the treated area. A topical antibiotic cream or ointment is recommended. Care should be taken in the first few days following treatment to avoid scrubbing the area, and abrasive skin cleansers should be avoided. A bandage or patch may help to prevent abrasion of the treated area. During the course of treatment it is recommended that patients cover the area with a 50 SPF.
