PicoSure is an FDA-cleared advanced laser technology that — in contrast to earlier methods — uses much shorter light pulses to break up tattoo ink pigments, lighten brown spots, and treat acne scarring (cleared in July 2014) with less residual heating of the surrounding skin's tissue. LEARN MORE ›

I went for my first picosure laser treatment today. I had one previous laser treatment about 4 years ago that barely faded it so I am hoping to see vast improvement. It's hard to rate the pain from this laser from the last because I had numbing stuff injected into my foot last time. They... READ MORE

...and it seems like I've only made it worse. My name is John; and I'm 24 years old from Rochester, NY. Within a month after my 21st birthday, I rushed to get a small, black Polynesian star tattooed on my left forearm. I had "researched" that it stood for confidence, and instantly decided that...

Hi everyone! This site has been a great resource for support and after I decided to get rid of my tattoos (in total I have five - two small ones on my wrists and three larger ones: back/neck, right upper arm and chest). Most of them are quite old, the "newest" one on my chest was done 8 years... READ MORE

Went with PicoSure over other methods due to speed and ability to target blues/greens. The 1996 gecko tattoo originally had some yellows and reds, but those colors have all but vanished over the past 18 yrs. First treatment was without numbing cream with a pain level similar to getting tattoo;... READ MORE

My mom's cat of 21 years died, made a regretful decision to get a tattoo of a black cat on my wrist....I was told to wait until 2 months for it to heal before removal, I wanted it gone the next day :( Called in June, apt was for July 12, had to reschedule it until July 26th. Staff gave me... READ MORE

Hi everyone! I thought I would share my experience so far removing my tattoos with the picosure laser. It is a long, slow process but so far has been worth it. I have had 2 sessions so far with a 6 week wait time between treatments. The process was very painful for me, especially my lower back.... READ MORE

I have a large all black tattoo on my torso. I ahve had one PicoSure Treatment so far. I am due back for my second oe October 7th. I am happy to not see any hypo and/or hyer pigmentation. It was extremely itchy for about two weeks but I had little to no blistering. Now though, it seems to look... READ MORE

I've had one treatment with Alexendrite laser with the same Md on all tattoos with not much of a difference so I thought I could just live with my mistake and ink regret but after hearing about picoosure and researching the amazing results I am going back for treatments on all the same tattoos...

After an enormous amount of research and countless consultations, I am beginning my Picosure treatment with the Laser & Skin Surgery Center in Manhattan. I will be using anesthetic, so I will not be able to treat both tattoos at once (meaning both during one visit). I will instead be treating... READ MORE

Seeing some fading in the blue...wonder how long this will take. I have many other tattoos and never thought I'd be one to regret a tattoo( says everyone) but I really messed this one up...I was feeling emotional and angry and decided a tattoo might distract me from my emotions well now all i...

I got my terrible and embarrassing tattoo when I was 18 years old on my left hip. A lot of people talk about regretting their tattoos instantly but for me I feel like I knew it was a bad idea before I even did it. I got pressured to make a deposit with an artist a friend recommended and once... READ MORE

I have decided to post my story after many nights reading posts on here. I am an attorney and about to attend medical school (I know!). I have a large and colorful 3/4 sleeve and another smaller tattoo on my chest. I have been getting lasered by a medlite C6 for about a year and just switched... READ MORE

Hi I am Jeremy from France and I have a calf tattoo that I regret so much: it was made 3 mounths ago by a famous artist I thought talented. I am not an impulsive person usually but I now realize that I decided Too Quick. I have a flower lotus that I have made inked in thailand 5 years ago and I... READ MORE

I drove 3 hours to Pristine Laser Center in Orlando from West Palm Beach to start the removal on my knee tattoo. Although it is a good tattoo done by an amazing artist it just bothered me since the day after I got it and though I tried to like it I couldn't. I started researching removal and... READ MORE

So, I have been getting treatments on a wrist tattoo for nearly a year now (you can see my progress in a separate thread) and have now decided to start Picosure treatments on a multicolour upper arm tattoo. My tattoo is approx. 15cm x 13cm so its going to take time and patience. It includes... READ MORE

My dermatologist was the first to receive the PicoSure laser in California so I decided to give it a go. I have never had any other laser removal done on my tattoo before PicoSure. My first treatment was in December and I received my second treatment today. So far I have seen a huge difference... READ MORE

I got this tattoo when I was 17. I don't have a huge regret story, it's just that I didn't think well enough about the placement and that for work purposes I now have to get it removed. I will be going through (hopefully) a full removal. At the time of starting this post I have had 2 session,... READ MORE

I wanted this tattoo for a long time (about 2 years), however after a 2 day session I got up from the tattoing chair and I hated it. The feeling still remains and I lost my confidence having to carry something that I can't even look at. Anyways I am booked in for a consultation on tomorrow in... READ MORE

I was 17 years old, young and dumb, and thought it was "cool" that someone was going to tattoo me in NYC on summer break. As a parting gift from High School, I got a tattoo on my ankle of stars. There's a reason why they require a parent signature if your under age (which I did not have). The... READ MORE

Well, I am going tomorrow to get lasered using the Picosure. Am not nervous about the actual pain but more about the aftercare and the possibility that it will not be totally removed (which would mean a waste of time and money). Tat is on right side of calf, entirely black and about 10 yrs old.... READ MORE
