Have you ever wondered just how precise we can be with the PicoSure laser? Take a look below at this example. The patient had undergone numerous q-switched laser treatments on a blue moon tattoo before finally getting frustrated with the lack of progress and had the start of a cover up applied. She requested that I treat around the new Jaguar piece and just target the remaining blue ink.
In this example, the white area below has just been treated which results in a frosted appearance due to the formation of gas under the skin. After 20 minutes, this gas is reabsorbed by the body revealing the tattoo once again. As you can clearly see, I was able to use a very small spot size and regulate both the number of pulses per second (measured as hertz or repeat rate) as well as the Boost upgrade intensity. This technique saves the desired portion of her tattoo and targets only the unwanted ink. Now we wait 6-8 weeks to see if a touch up is needed. Stay tuned for the update.
