My preference for laser tattoo removal is the PiQo4 laser that has 4 Pico wavelengths including 532 for red pigment. With this laser 96% of ink can be removed effectively and safely and on average in as little as 4-6 sessions. I currently utilize 5 Pico wavelengths and have been practicing tattoo removal for almost 20 years.

Thank you for your question. I would suggest the PicoSure laser. PicoSure is
able to target pigments that previous lasers were not able to treat because the
wavelengths it operates has the ability to target and shatter even the smallest
of ink particles. The PicoSure laser offers such advanced technology that it
can 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. Typically
most patients need at least 3-6 sessions for optimal results. If you are
interested in the procedure, I suggest consulting with a qualified provider for
a full in-person consultation. Good Luck!
Laser tattoo removal depends on a variety of factors. The colors which are predominant in your tattoo include blue, red and black. Picosure is excellent at treating the blues and greens and it is also really good at treating the black ink. Some would argue that a YAG laser may actually be better for black ink due to absorption and increased penetration of a longer wavelength laser. The red ink can be difficult to treat and requires the use of a 532 nm laser . Picosure is a fantastic laser but by no means perfect. Fortunately there is rumor, that the company will soon come out with a 1064 handpiece which should make it a complete option for laser tattoo removal.
All the best
