PicoWay laser is a very precise instrument that allows the practitioner to concentrate on very small areas of a tattoo, while leaving other portions intact. In addition, the tattoo you wish to keep can be protected with a guard. Please see a board-certified dermatologist to have this done.
It is really common to only want a portion of the tattoo treated. All we do is cover the area that you do not want treated before we prep the area for the laser. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
Thank you for your question. It is possible to remove just a portion of the tattoo. Pico lasers can treat very precise areas. I will also will block tattoo that is not being treated when necessary.
Thanks for posting your question. We get a lot of requests to remove only a portion of a tattoo - often a name, and every once in a while a spelling error! To do this we simply cover the portion of the tattoo which is to remain with a lead shield. This prevents any damage to the tattoo staying behind. Good luck, Dr. M
Laser tattoo removal works by the area it is treated on and has no effect on any area nearby. Best, Dr. Emer.
