PicoSure is the best for tattoo removal.
Thank you for your question. The PicoSure laser is the latest in tattoo removal technology. Tattoos are made up of ink that has been placed into the deeper layer of the skin, the dermis. This layer of skin is not shed like the upper layers of your skin, but remains in place, which is what makes tattoos permanent. In order to remove them, the cells that hold the ink have to be removed. The Picosure laser is able to do this in fewer treatments then older technologies, typically 4-8 sessions at 4-6 week intervals. It can also easily and effectively remove nearly any pigment color from nearly any skin type or skin color. One of the most difficult colors to remove is often dark red, but the PicoSure laser can target even those dark red colors. I recommend consulting with a qualified physician in your area for a full consultation.
