PicoSure Boost – Formation of Cavitation Pressures Within a Tattoo

Simply put, cavitation is the formation of high pressure bubbles, within human tissue in the case of tattoos, which “pop” releasing a supersonic pressure wave traveling about 1,481 meters per second. The result is the physical destruction or crumbling of tattoo pigments, which are then absorbed by the body via lymph flow and phagocytosis. The greater the pressure within the bubbles, the stronger the resultant pressure waves become. In nature, cavitation can destroy the strongest metals and is also used by the tiny mantis shrimp to break through even the hardest shells of its prey.

The one and only PicoSure laser by Cynosure uses a software called Boost to decrease the length and energy of the pulse duration, which CONVERSELY increases the pressure inside the resultant cavitation bubbles. When they pop, these tiny bubbles can break even the toughest of inks; even those containing heavy metals.

By utilizing photomechanical cavitation versus the photothermal burning of a POS q-switched laser, the revolutionary PicoSure removes tattoos faster and more safely with less chance of burning, scarring and other unwanted side effects.

Tattoos Predate The Time Of Jesus

The only mention of tattoos in the Bible comes from the old testament in Leviticus 19:28 (NIV): “Do not cut your bodies for the dead or put tattoo marks on yourselves. I am the Lord.” Okay, but according to the New Testament what did Jesus himself think of tattoos? It doesn’t say, but he definitely saw them and easily could have commented on them. Tattoos were around thousands of years prior to the first Christmas – many were quite large and elaborate (see multicolored example below). Even the three wise men might’ve had them. So why do I bring this up? Well, it’s because I have often heard from my clients that they feel ashamed of their tattoos.

All of us make artistic decisions we ultimately regret but no one expects you or your tattoos to be perfect. Besides, I can easily remove them with the first and only revolutionary PicoSure laser, which is obviously something our ancestors didn’t have access to. Undoubtedly, a good number of these mummies were less than thrilled with their ink and they had no recourse but to do a cover-up tattoo. Speaking of which, I do a ton of PicoSure fades for artists who perform cover-up tattoos.

Make no mistake, you are beautiful, and with my help and the PicoSure laser, you can achieve any look you desire. I won’t judge your ink and neither should anyone else., Cell: 512-808-6712

PicoSure Laser Tattoo Removal Is Contraindicated During Pregnancy

When you’re pregnant you must abstain from anything that could harm your fetus, i.e. excessive alcohol, skydiving and PicoSure laser tattoo removal. While the overwhelming majority of tattoo inks are harmless to an adult, the same cannot be said for children, especially a developing embryo or fetus at any stage of development.

Tattoo inks contain a variety of heavy metals like iron and titanium, which when vaporized by the revolutionary one and only PicoSure laser, can wind up in the circulatory and lymph systems, and breast milk. Metals and foreign pigment particles can pass through the placenta and could potentially harm an unborn child so PicoSure laser tattoo removal treatments must be halted during pregnancy.

Additionally, if you think you might be pregnant you should not get a tattoo of any kind. Ink is injected during the tattooing process and travels through the blood and lymph system, which has the potential to cause birth defects or even worse. Additionally, if you’re breast feeding, please do not get a tattoo or PicoSure laser tattoo removal for the same reasons as listed above. When you’re ready, I’ll be here to successfully remove that ink like it never even happened.
