PicoSure for tattoo removal
Thanks for your question. PicoSure™ uses photomechanical PressureWave technology, which is capable of shattering even the smallest targeted ink particles. The laser’s ultra-short pulse duration creates an intense impact, breaking up the tattoo ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated from your body. The number of treatments you will need to fully remove your tattoo will depend on a number of factors (size of tattoo, color of ink and its depth.) Best is to visit a board certified dermatologist to discuss number of treatments as each person reacts differently. Hope this helps. Best, Dr. Katz
Picosure tattoo removal
You should have good to great results with the picosure laser. The predominant color in the tattoo is black with some shading. You may require 6 to 10 treatments for near complete to complete removal You do not need to wait more than a month to start your treatments. It is not possible to guarantee 100% removal as many factors such as location of tattoo, type of ink and density determine results. But based on the pictures I think you will be happy with the process. As always, it is important to goto a provider who has experience with tattoo removal
