half sleeve tattoo removal with picosure laser

Well i just had my first picosure laser session 4

Well i just had my first picosure laser session 4 days ago on my arm. it was the start of a half sleeve that i ended up hating because of to much color. it is costing me $1100 a session. i was reading alot of reviews on this laser n everybody seems to say something different about the pain of the laser so i really didnt know what to expect. they put numbing cream on you before which dont think did anything. this was by far the most painful thing i have ever felt. theres people saying it feels like rubber bands snapping at your skin and it def does not!!!!! its 100x worse then any tattoo. it took about an hour for mine because its so big. the blisters started that same night and the next day got bigger. my arm is completley swollen and today is 4 days later. hopefully the swelling starts going down now. few blisters look a little smaller but im still covered in them. a ton of color came out thank god so i will wait n see the next weeks ahead... this whole thing is sooo mentally draining as many of you know because we just want it off but i guess we should be thankful for this laser... it is def worth doing but anyone looking to remove a tattoo make sure you use the picosure because the other lasers dont work!!!!!!! i live in nj so if anyone needs any info let me know!!! my doctor and his staff are great!!! here are some pics before n after

Wow, I'm seeing over and over again that the Picosure completely destroys the purple in tattoos! Are you going for full removal or will you do a cover up? Looks like you are off to a good start...good luck with your treatments!

yes it took the purple right out!! im getting it fully removed. it sucks because the tattoo artist did a sick job but i just dont like it on me! im not into the bright colors but anyways, this is day 6 blisters finally went down yesterday but my arm is still swollen. its just annoying at this point..

the blisters are no skin damage if your aftercare is right. of course the skin is burned, but i never got any scars...

half sleeve tattoo removal with picosure laser

well had my second laser done yesterday.... hurt alot more then first time cause he turned up the laser... im all blistered and swollen as expected.. im not gonna post pics of that but i will post pics after that all goes away...
Thanks for your post. I had my first picolaser session last week and was not properly prepared for the horror of what was under the bandage they applied after my session. Then today (day 4) I noticed my whole arm is swelling. I don't have a full sleeve , just half, so if I hadn't seen other posts I would probably be in the ER right now!!!

half sleeve tattoo removal with picosure laser PICS 2 MONTHS AFTER 2 LASER SESSION

HERE ARE SUM PICS 2 MONTHS AFTER MY SECOND TREATMENT.. I ACTUALLY JUST WENT FOR MY 3RD TREATMENT YESTERDAY AND I WILL POST THOSE PICS IN FEW WEEKS...
Hello, i´m just asking how the white ink (is the white ink on these cats right?) responding to the picosure laser. I wanna get my tattoo removed but highly depressed about big amount of white colour in my tattoo. And you what they say about white color...Thank you for your response.

Hope you don't mind me asking.. but how in the world are you coming up with $1100 each session?!

Hi There, I see you have some yellow, orange and pink that is being stubborn. I have yellow, orange and pink in mine as well and am concerned as I heard the picosure won't get rid of those colors. What did your technician recommend, are you getting them treated with a different laser?

Hi, Great progress so far. I have my second Pico laser on Monday. I am also doing a half sleeve, however my one goes all the way up my shoulder and back. Its solid black. Most of my shading was gone after the 1st session, cant wait for it all to be over. How is your one going after the 4th session? If all goes to plan, I will have my 4th session done in November, before Summer (in Australia) comes around.

Pics after 4th treatment

sorry its been so long since ive posted but hefre are sum pics after 4th treatment
How is number 5 looking? I had number 3 on Monday, stupid blisters and scabs! I'm wondering if I could Hydroquinone in between sessions to get rid of the hyper pigmentation... I might look into it..

Thanks for sharing! Looks really good! I can't wait to get rid of mine

Looks great! Congratulations! Have you noticed a "browness" where the ink used to be. Some parts where my shading was, it appears to be brownish, as if there is still ink there
