Time to get rid of this thing....

Had this tattoo that I got kinda during a rough period of my life. Never really liked it much or finished it. Decided I was ready to get rid of it. PicoSure worked wonders. My doctor treated the second treatment with the Deep FX laser after the Picosure to help avoid the painful blisters. It worked really well. You can see the difference by comparing pictures of Treatment One Day 2 with Treatment 2 Day 2. Definately worth looking into if it's also available where you are having the procedure.

2nd Treatment

It's looking really good. Main thing about doing this is to just stay positive. Picosure does work. There's no point beating yourself up over mistakes you've made in the past, even though we all do. It's all just a part of your evolving life and I'm actually enjoying watching this thing fade away.

Taking more treatments than I originally hoped for. Am in it for the long run now, 2-3 more? if i'm lucky...

I really need some encouragement :/

Hey everyone, so it's been a long time since I've been on here. I have been getting my tattoo lasered off for the last year and a half, I am on treatment 10 now! The doctor said that my tattoo is one of the hardest he has come across. I'm feeling very frustrated and desperate to have this whole thing over with.... Tell me what you think. I really need some mental support right now! I just stair at it all the time and am just consumed with being done with such a crappy thing in my life. I want it gone but it is now progressing sooo slowly.........

Here's a better picture of Treatment 10

Have any words of encouragement?

Treatment 10

Moving painstakingly slow. The doctor has really told me how difficult my tattoo is! What do you guys think? There is improvement between Treatment 9 and 10, but not much! He's thinking about adding Imiquimod Cream which is supposed to increase your immune system activity to help clear the ink. I know it is moving slow but this is what I'm doing now, however long it takes, I will get rid of it! Do you guys see improvement? What do you guys think? Need some support! Thanks

Treatment 10 (Again)

Hey everyone, so here's a couple more pictures from Treatment 10. It's really getting to me and dragging me down how long this process is taking for me. I seem to be getting very slow results. My tattoo was a cover up and the second artist completely DUG the outline into my skin, I remember how painful it was, to try to cover up the first tattoo.... So this outline is being sooo incredibly stubborn. Anyways, here's pictures of Treatment 6 vs 8 vs 10. (looking at every other treatment together gives me a little less anxiety) I'm going to keep pushing through. I also posted a close up of Treatment 10 just, because it is kind of a bummer for me that even the areas that are almost not visible from a distance still do have ink in them and its not fading much..... Let me know if you guys have any support/advice! Thank you.

Treatment 11

Here's a pic of two weeks after Treatment 11 vs. Treatment 10. It does show some good improvement, but man is this dragging on way too long.... Going to wait a couple more months for the next treatment.
