Millions of patients have tried UNSUCCESSFULLY to remove tattoos with POS q-switched lasers, salt-fading injections, micro-needling Eclipse TRWrecking Balm?  Unfortunately, these, and many other, attempts at tattoo removal have left hundreds of thousands of patients scarred with residual ink in the form of unsightly “tattoo remnants”.  Wow, talk about tattoo regret!

Many businesses TRIED a “No visible tattoos” policy in 2015 and failed?!  Starbucks and the U.S. Army are two notable examples.  Although both of these American institutions believed that tatted-up workers hurt their brand & image, they soon found that these valuable workers were welcomed elsewhere with open arms!  Starbucks lost many of its current employees, while potential applicants with tattoos didn’t even apply.  Additionally, the U.S. Army determined that exceptional soldiers were retiring early because of the negative policy.  Both agencies, and many more, reversed course and did away with the antiquated policy that had cost them more money than it was worth.

Did YOU know?  There’s a difference between a laser tattoo “TREATMENT “and an actual PicoSure laser tattoo “REMOVAL”?  I recently saw someone advertise that they had performed 250,000 laser tattoo removal treatments with their old Q-switched laser!  Wow, that sure sounds impressive right?  Not really.  Why?  Well, because the number of treatments doesn’t equate to the number of actual removals.  If you’re a patient walking around with half a tattoo left on your skin, possibly accompanied by scarring, you know exactly what I’m talking about.  At austinpicosure.com I specialize in completely removing tattoos in as few treatments as possible.  The fewer the treatments, the faster the removal and the better the clinical outcome!  I can be reached  by phone @ 512-479-9997  or just stop by my NEW location in Austin, TX:  Austin Medspa on W. 6th St.

Did YOU know?  The PicoSure laser for tattoo removal has a “rep rate” or repeat rate that ranges from 1-10 pulses per second depending upon the area being treated?  The rate is measured in Hertz.  Treating a large back piece would require 10 Hertz but a traumatic tattoo near the eye might necessitate a rate of only 1 Hertz.  A skilled operator recognizes the need for laser adjustments based upon a large array of medical variables.  At the end of a procedure, the PicoSure laser will report how many times it pulsed and this number becomes part of the patient’s medical record which can be evaluated later if adjustments are required.  I can be reached  by phone @ 512-479-9997  or just stop by my NEW location in Austin, TX:  Austin Medspa on W. 6th St.

Did YOU know?  There are literally thousands of tattoo color variations because artists can mix hundreds of different shades from different manufacturers to create new color palettes all the time.  However, all of these color combinations have one thing in common:  they can all be vaporized by the PicoSure laser which now has two wavelengths for unparalleled performance.

Did YOU know?  Some tattoos continue to fade for over a year following treatment with the PicoSure laser?!  I’ve personally documented two cases where patients were photographed before and after their last treatment and then again at one year.  In both instances the tattoos were significantly lighter.
