Thank you for your question. Typically it takes 3-6
treatments of the PicoSure laser to fully remove a tattoo. Just give it more
time. PicoSure is a great laser to remove black tattoos in fewer treatments
then previous laser technology allowed. Black is also one of the simplest
colors to remove as it is easier for the laser to pick up that pigment color.
Tattoos should be removed with q switched or pico lasers, we will often combine with fractional lasers to help speed the process. No matter the device it will take several treatments to see the outcome and response to treatment. Black is the easiest color to remove, but you should see improvement with continued treatment. Please consult with a laser expert. Best, Dr. Emer
