Picosure Has Been Amazing! - Charlotte, NC

I have several tattoos, all of which came from a very different time in my life. I hated a large one on a back but figured tattoo removal would be too costly, so I added to it to try and make it "pretty". Good intentions, but I hated it even more the bigger it got!!! I started doing research and found out about picosure and decided that it was worth a shot, if something seemed different after the first session, I could keep going, if not, I could make a different choice.
So I have had 2 TREATMENTS now, one on July 18 and the next was August 15, which was 5 weeks after the first treatment (should have waited 6 weeks, but she said it wouldn't hurt since I left town for several weeks and was SO EXCITED about the results that I wanted to have another session!!!!!!) The doctor is great, the procedure was uncomfortable, NO LIE! I have a big tattoo on some very sensitive nerves so she numbed what she could with lidocaine (sub-dermis) and the rest she used cool air on. I had 14,500 pulses the first session, and 17,000 the second, so if yours is smaller it will still be uncomfortable if you do not numb, but the numb spots were fine. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND getting your first session, you really will see results!!! Oh, and I am in a clinical trial with it, so my price is based on my commitment as well as because of the trial, so it would definitely be higher cost for anyone with this size tattoo unless they qualify for a clinical trial. :)

.Post Second Treatment - And 3rd is healing now!

Here is the pic the doc took right before she did my third treatment. That means that this picture is AFTER ONLY 2 TREATMENTS!!!! It faded so much weeks upon weeks after treatment. I will post pictures of my third treatment soon, it has been 2 weeks since that one, so I will still be experiencing a lot of fading.

post 3 treatments

Very happy! This picture was just last week right before my 4th treatment, so within the next 2 months my tattoo will fade and I'll get a new pic, so more progress is in the process, I know that picosure really works looking at the before and after!

post treatment 3, right before 4th

1 year post 4 treatments..... Next treatment this Thursday!!!

The doc always takes a better picture right before my treatment, but these are selfies of 4 treatments. I posted a pic of the original next to my post 3rd treatment. I really believe the gray work on the bottom (which is older than the tree) will be almost completely gone after this treatment! There are so many parts that are just completely new skin, like no tattoo was ever there!!! You MUST drink lots of water, though. The particles go through your lymph system, too, so eating a clean healthy diet will also help your system remove the particles. But PICOSURE breaks up the ink so your body can get rid of it! I'm SO excited to see what happens after my 5th this week!!!

FABULOUS doctor!! Very professional, she helped keep me comfortable (my sessions last a straight hour of treatment) and has given my astonishing results!! I drive 3 hours to her because she is the only Picosure owner anywhere near, and it and she is worth the money and the drive!!!!!
