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

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.

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?
  • Reply
it will get rid of all of them the only color thats hard is the reds n they have other lasers for that. the other colors just mite take longer to come out. all i can say is the laser is soooooooooooooo painful. im in there for an hour. it suxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

I nearly died (not literally) when I had laser tattoo removal done and mine was only 30 seconds. Bless your strength. Hopefully there won't be too many more sessions. Would you get more tats?

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!!!
