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.
