PicoSure is an FDA-approved laser technology that uses short bursts of energy for the removal of tattoos, moles, acne scars, and age spots, as well as the reduction of wrinkles. PicoSure's bursts are measured in picoseconds (trillionths of a second) which cause the tattoo ink or other damage to break apart into tiny particles which are eliminated by the body. Compared to traditional nanosecond lasers, PicoSure may be more effective on stubborn colors and require fewer treatments to achieve final results.

My half sleeve was my first large body modification and even though I went to a reputable shop, I was set up with a fairly new artist (I didn't know this at the time) and I should have been told what I wanted didn't translate well into a tattoo.

Unsatisfied Cover-up - Montreal, QC

I had a tattoo on my hip that I liked; just didn't like the placement. In order to have a successful cover-up, it had to be bigger and shaded.

Tattoo Removal - Two Treatments So Far

I got this tattoo when I was 18 and I've regretted it for a while now. I decided to give picosure a try after watching a show about in on tv. It's so worth it.

Picosure is amazing, I've had 1 q-switch tattoo removal but I did not see any results, however, after two sessions with picosure I see that my body is clearly eating up the ink and the dark black lines are fading and some areas even exposing skin instead of ink, this procedure saved my life :). ...

What the F@$K Was I Thinking?!

In mid September 2016 I lost my mind and got a tattoo on the front of my neck. The tattoo says "Gypsy". It's all black ink. Black letter along with black shading. It's nicely done and professional work. However, my placement for the tattoo was very very wrong. I have since fallen into a deep... READ MORE
