PicoSure laser tattoo removal
Picosure should successfully remove your tattoo but it will require time. Picosure applicator can be adjusted to three different wavelengths, such as 755, 1064, and 532. Therefore, it can successfully remove green, blue, red and black shades of ink. If white ink has been used for your shaded areas, this will be quite challenging to treat. I advise you to find experienced provider to discuss your options and create a treatment plan. Good luck!
PicoSure for tattoo removal
Thanks for your question and photos. The number of treatments you will need to fully remove your tattoo will depend on a number of factors such as the size of the tattoo, ink color and depth of the tattoo. Since PicoSure™ is one hundred times faster than any other laser on the market, you will require fewer sessions overall in order to achieve your desired results. Even dark blue and green inks – which are usually the most difficult to remove – can be effectively cleared with less treatment.
