Can you imagine waking up the day after you got your new tattoo and already having tattoo regret? Or how about the very first time you saw your new ink in the mirror and experiencing regret before even leaving the tattoo shop? It’s a lot more common than you might think. Every day I hear stories like “It’s not what I wanted.” or “It’s a lot bigger than I thought it would be.” When this happens, a patient still must wait 4 weeks before beginning removal treatments to ensure the skin is completely healed and ready to accept the laser energy.
Let’s face it, sometimes a tattoo just doesn’t turn out right and the victim is forced to seek out a state-of-the-art removal remedy such as the PicoSure laser. I treat tattoos every day with PicoSure and I never cease to be amazed at how effective it is – even on previously treated tattoos. I had one such patient today. She’s got a big tattoo on her lower back which was treated a dozen times with a q-switched laser. The treatments left her scarred and with a ton of ink still under her skin. In fact from a distance, her tattoo looked like it had never even been treated. That’s a tough situation; pay for 12 treatments and nothing happens – wow!
Anyway, I saw her again today and in a single treatment with PicoSure the before and after pictures revealed a delightful surprise: much less ink! If you have a tattoo you want off 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.
