Picosure Treatment on Colourful Upper Arm Tattoo - Bluewater, NM

So, I have been getting treatments on a wrist...

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 black, blue, orange, red, yellow and pink inks so the laser technician said she may introduce the Revlite depending on how the red shades respond with the Picosure.

I had my first treatment 5 days ago and the laser was set at 3.0 so not had much blistering or anything. I see break up in the black ink already and the blue has responded really well. I have added a picture before treatment and a pic 5 days post treatment. I look forward to seeing some good fading over the coming weeks :)


I've had one treatment on my neck tattoo back on May 9 an I see it really starting to break the ink down an most of the out lines of it is pretty much gone!! So I'm pretty excited for my 2th treatment next month!! An the dr told me the more time you wait the better results you'll see after each session an now I see what she ment! Because once the skin starts to heal the ink really starts to break up an go away!!

2nd Picosure completed 15/07/14 on blue and black ink.

I had my 2nd Picosure treatment on 15/07/14. I don't know what setting it was on this time but boy did it hurt. I still didn't blister or scab after though. This time I only had the black and blue ink treated as my technician thinks the red inks will definitely respond better to the Revlite. I have to go back next week to get the reds pinks and oranges treated but for now I have added some update pics.


what an amazing results i ever seen...!! how isit goin? hope it'll be all gone =)

It's going pretty well!! My next treatment is on aug 22th!!! My dr said it might be my last treatment!! But if not I'll just have to get a touch up so I'm pretty happy it's almost over an it haven't even been 6months!! The traditional Q laser would have taken over a year to remove it with 15 treatments at $105 each

3rd Picosure completed 10/09/14

I had my 3rd Picosure treatment today on the blue and black inks of my tattoo. Again, I forgot to ask what strength it was set at but she did say she had increased it and it was really painful. I am going back in 4 weeks to have the reds and oranges treated and by then am hoping to see some good fading on the blue and black. I have added a pic of my tattoo a few weeks back although its not very clear so apologies! I will add a better progress pic when I am fully healed.


The blue is pretty much gone! You are making great progress, thank you so much for keeping your review up to date! Happy Healing!!
