Tattoos in black are the easiest to remove because the black ink absorbs the laser energy the most. A tattoo of your size would be $50-$100 per treatment. The exciting part of laser tattoo removal is just about to begin, with the new Picosure Laser. It works with trillionth of a second pulses, all other lasers are billionth of a second, and although that might not seem like a big difference it is. The picosecond pulse works differently in that it creates an acoustic wave (think sonic boom) that shatters the pigment, rather than heating it up and blowing it apart like ALL other current lasers do. This results in smaller pieces of pigment and the body can carry them away much better, which gets rid of your tattoo much faster than ever before! I'm not sure where you live, but there are currently only 15 of these lasers in the world, and I'm proud to say, my office, Phoenix Skin owns one. Tattoo removal wil be forever changed because of this new technology!!
