PicoSure Tattoo Removal
Tattoos are often more than simple body art. Many people get tattoos that have deep symbolic meanings and represent specific experiences in their lives. Regardless of the reason for getting a tattoo, more than 20 percent of people eventually regret the decision to get one and want to have it removed. In some cases, having a tattoo at all may impede professional advancement. In others, tastes or circumstances may have changed, and they want to replace the original with a new design.
Whatever the reason, this has, historically, been a difficult, long, and quite painful process.
Gone are the days of tough-to-remove tattoos. With the addition of PicoSure tattoo removal, Serenity Rejuvenation Center now has the ability to erase unwanted ink more effectively than ever before with arguably the best results in tattoo removal.
Additionally, this new technology affords faster recovery time, less pain, and greater results with fewer treatments than any other technology in the history of laser tattoo removal for virtually all patients.
PicoSure: State-of-the-Art Tattoo Removal
From the early 1990s to 2013, nanosecond laser technology was considered the gold standard for removing tattoos. Enter PicoSure laser technology, the world’s first picosecond laser platform. “Pico” means one-trillionth, and PicoSure is 1000 times faster than nanosecond technology!
Why PicoSure Is Better than Other Forms of Tattoo Removal Treatment
This difference in speed and pulse width changes the mechanism of action from a photothermal mechanism (heating of ink) into a primarily photomechanical mechanism (pressure and shattering of the ink). This advance has resulted in a process that requires less downtime, reduces the length of treatment sessions by half, and is very effective against even the most stubborn of colors.
Compared with nanosecond pulse durations, picosecond lasers are also more acutely targeted to a specific area, so there are fewer adverse effects, such as scarring and/or hypopigmentation.
