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.

No longer in love with my tattoos

I think my story is very likely similar to many of the folks in this forum. I'm 30 now, and I began getting tattoos at age 18, with various cover ups and improvements, adding small and large pieces along the way. I loved my tattoos until I was around 22 years old, and since then have felt more... READ MORE

20 year old tattoo needs to go

I got this when I was 22. I thought it was too big from the beginning but, being 22, didn't say anything. I like the subject matter, but I've always disliked the composition, execution and size.

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.
