PICOSURE® Tattoo Removal

The new generation Picosure laser uses pico-second 755nm technology to smash away stubborn tattoo pigments safely. Even the most challenging blue, green and purple inks, or stubborn tattoos previously treated by conventional lasers can be effectively removed with this laser. With the Picosure laser, this have been reduced to half the original number of sessions required to clear tattoos, so you save time.

Our PicoSure® Tattoo Removal Laser is designed to treat both black and colour tattoos. This treatment is safe for all skin types with low or no downtime.

Contact us, we are more than happy to share why many are asking for Picosure laser treatment over the traditional lasers. Be sure, Picosure.

Pico Tattoo Removal Laser is well tolerated and the pain level is lower than other lasers. 

The pain experienced is similar to a snap of a rubber band. We apply cooling treatments post-laser to soothe and calm the skin.

Our Lasers are performed by doctor certified by MOH.

Most pigmentations including tattoos will not return after removal.

The treatment is completed in 5 to 10 minutes, depending on the size of the treated area and the condition being treated.

Number of sessions is dependent on a few factors such as the patient’s skin colour, density of pigmentation, etc. In general, a course of 5 to 10 sessions at 4 week intervals is recommended.

Tattoos are removed by directing laser energy at the tattooed area in very short pulses, passing through the outer layer of the skin and directly targeting the tattoo ink. The laser selectively destroys the tattoo ink. Over the next few weeks, the body’s scavenger cells remove pigment residues, resulting in lightening of the tattoo.

Earlier methods in tattoo removal involved the use of crude and painful dermabrasion, salabrasion (using coarse table salt and a moist abrasive pad), surgery and CO2 lasers, but these procedures had a much higher risk of scarring, which may have been worse than having the tattoo itself. Under our care, most tattoos are effectively removed with little risk of scars. The art of laser tattoo removal is to remove the tattoo as quickly as possible, but at the same time do it safely without scarring.

Dark blue, black and red inks are the easiest to treat. Orange, yellow, and purple usually respond moderately well. Green, sky-blue inks are the most difficult to remove, but with the latest Picosure 755nm laser, even these colours can be effectively removed quickly. White and pink tattoos usually respond poorly.

Side effects of laser procedures are generally few but may include hyperpigmentation, or an abundance of color in the skin at the treatment site, and hypopigmentation, where the treated area lacks normal skin color. On occasion, blisters may form on the treated area, but this goes away in less than a week. Other possible side effects include infection of the site, lack of complete pigment removal and a less than 5 percent chance of permanent scarring (keloids, etc). The vast majority of patients report having no side effects.
