Switched to Picosure after 8 Q Switched YAG Laser Treatments (NaturaLase) Las Vegas, NV

I've had about 8 treatments with the Naturalase Q...

I've had about 8 treatments with the Naturalase Q Switched YAG laser and wanted to switch it up and try something new. Not that I had any complaints about the Naturalase but I had heard that the Picosure was awesome and the newest thing so I wanted to try it and see what I thought. I will say that I had thought my tattoo would have been gone by now with the Q Switched. The other place I went to prior to Surgical Dermatolgy & Laser Center had estimated it would take fewer treatments than what I've had but this is a common story, so I hear. I'm not mad, I have patience. I just hope that between all of these lasers eventually it will be gone. I'm willing to do the work and go through the pain.

The Picosure was the least painful experience I've had though. I think it's because the place I went to injects you with the lidocaine. That's my first time doing that but it was virtually pain-free. At first I was weary of the needle because I hate needles but I barely felt the injections or the procedure that followed. I'd definitely recommend doing it that way after having experienced it now. As far as the Picosure results, as I stated below, I not sure since I just had it done yesterday but I will come back and update y'all once I know more. You have my word.

Before & After Pics

I just wanted to upload some before pics of my tattoo removal journey so you have a little reference of where I started. The previous tattoo removal place I went to was called Erased Laser Tattoo Removal in Las Vegas, NV. They're a good place too... They just don't have the Picosure and I wanted to try something new.

After pics of my tenth laser tattoo removal session

Just had my second Picosure and tenth overall treatment with laser. As you can see from the pics, it's working great. I'm guessing that my daisy on my toe and Winnie the Pooh tattoo will be pretty much gone after this treatment, if not all the way. It was a good sign when the laser lady almost skipped out on doing the treatment on Pooh because she didn't see it. I had to point him out to her. Tigger is fading but he's taking his sweet time. The daisy with the peace sign in the middle is going too but I may have some hypopigmentation back there. Oh well. Overall, I am happy with my results and glad that I switched it up by doing the Picosure. I'm going to continue on with that laser until further notice. If you have questions or comments, feel free to leave them for me. I'd love to know what you think. Am I just guilty of wishful thinking or do you think it's really working?
Surgical Dermatology & Laser Center

The office was clean and nice, the people that worked there friendly. I met the lady that was going to be administering my laser treatment, Chelsea Davis. She was great. She took the time to explain the procedure and answer all of my questions. The treatment was pain free and went well. Now it's just a waiting game. I'm anxious to see my results and will report back with more photos and info after every treatment but so far so good.
