I've decided to try to remove this 10 years old tattoo in 2011, I did not like it from the beginning, I had #5 q switch treatments without success and after 4 years, this month I decided to try with picosure. First treatment was last Friday the 24th, I had no pain, bat the ankle swelling and some small blisters so far.

Yesterday the fifth treatment

The fifth tratment yesterday and the next scheduled in september, he used picosure, q-switch, alexandrite and fraxel laser to improve skin response of macrophages. It burned yesterday, but today I don't feel anything.

Update

Two weeks after 5th picosure (with q switch and fraxel laser), black is fading well. My healing process always needs about 4 or 5 weeks to be completed.

One month after 5th picosure

After 6 tretment

Herr I am after the summer and two months after the sixth treatment, the next is scheduled for 11 November, there are small spots of hypopigmentation that worry me a bit...

Today treatment n.8

Black ink is fading well, I've noted some hypopigmentation on green-blue ink, I begin to be tired, I don't see much progress in the last sessions.

8 treatment

Still healing, a month after last treatment. But I can see the end.

Four months after last picosure

Four months after the 8th picosure, some areas with hypo and hyperpigmentation. Next check in September.

After 5 months

A little tan and five months from last treatment in January. Hope the summer will help to resolve part of the hyper and hypopigmentation.
