Have you ever heard the expression: “Keep coming back, it works!” I tell my patients that, especially in the beginning because even the state-of-the-art PicoSure Laser takes time to completely remove a tattoo. Several treatments may be required because each tattoo is different and no two people are alike. Some inks are very tough & deeply colored or heavily saturated into the skin.
Many inks are tweaked by manufacturers to improve their “lightfastness”, which is the degree to which a pigment is unaffected by time or exposure to sunlight. Manufacturers add a number of secret ingredients to ensure that their inks are tough and durable. These additives include various metals like titanium, chromium and iron which can reflect laser light or change form and color during the tattoo removal process. An experienced PicoSure provider can advise you on how your particular ink is responding and what strategies may be incorporated for optimum clearance. PicoSure laser tattoo removal ensures you get the best possible result in the fewest number of treatments. So don’t trust your skin to a POS Q-switched laser, which can easily burn and scar while it unsuccessfully attempts to remove tough ink. If you want your tattoo safely and totally cleared with PicoSure’s patented PressureWave and Boost software I can be reached in Austin, TX @ my new location: Austin Medspa 512-479-9997.
