Let’s look at an example of a patient who I recently treated with the PicoSure laser. This particular tattoo was black in color and located on the upper left shoulder blade. The tattoo had been professionally inked and utilized a high quality pigment that had maintained its lightfastness despite the fact that this patient snorkeled regularly and enjoyed working outdoors. The tattoo was approximately 15 years old and was put on while this young man was serving in the U.S. military. The patient had decided to remove it because he had grown tired of the design. It took a total of 4 treatments to achieve complete removal. I use this example due to the tattoo’s size. I frequently treat large tattoos and the success rate is the same as with any other tattoo. However, regardless of the tattoo type, color, location or age, a commitment is required on the part of the patient and their provider to successfully clear unwanted ink.
