Many of us have made choices we often regret later on, and among them is deciding to get a tattoo that we may not have thought about enough. Like many, you may have made some poor decisions in your early years and gotten a questionable tattoo, or you may have had a great tattoo in mind, but your tattoo artist didn’t quite give you the results you were looking for. Sure, these are regrettable, but they don’t have to be something you have no choice but to live with.

At Allergy & Skin Spa, our services for laser tattoo removal in Brentwood use the PicoSure laser system to effectively remove all types of tattoos. This means that your tattoos no longer have to be permanent, they can be removed so efficiently that it looks like they were never there in the first place. With PicoSure lasers, you can ensure that your skin is completely ink-free once again. Since the procedure is permanent and irreversible, you can say goodbye to your tattoos forever.

HOW DOES PICOSURE LASER TATTOO REMOVAL WORK?

PicoSure is the only laser tattoo removal procedure that uses the advanced PressureWave technology. In addition, it is also the first picosecond laser in the world. Dr. Kia, at Allergy & Skin Spa, wants only the best for his patients, which is why he only uses the PicoSure laser. Not only is it safe but also highly effective, even more so than other traditional lasers, and requires no downtime.

By delivering special energy that is meant specifically for targeting the ink underneath your skin, PicoSure is capable of shattering the ink particles into small fragments, allowing your body to naturally get rid of these tiny ink fragments. This is a simple and brief way of describing just how PicoSure works.

Generally, people need to sit through multiple sessions of laser tattoo removal to be completely free of the ink. However, what makes PicoSure so great is that you need fewer sessions than other traditional laser removal techniques because it is that much more effective. The number of sessions you receive depends upon your skin type, the location of tattoo, ink colors, the amount of ink used, and the tattoo layering. On top of these, other personal factors such as your age and the condition of your physical health, whether you have pre-existing scarring, and how strong your immune system is, will weigh in on the number of sessions you need to get rid of your tattoo completely.

COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS ABOUT LASER TATTOO REMOVAL

When it comes to laser tattoo removal, there is a common misconception that the tattoo is removed as a result of the laser burning it. However, the truth is that the actual ink removal is done by your body itself; the laser simply turns the ink particles into fragments small enough for the body to naturally get rid of them.

At Allergy & Skin Spa, the procedure for our laser tattoo removal in Brentwood does not take long. For an average-sized tattoo, it usually takes approximately ten minutes. If your tattoo is large and has a complex design, it will take longer than this. Dr. Kia will use the PicoSure laser to send out light energy to your skin. This light energy is composed of different wavelengths for each ink color. When directed over the tattooed area on your body, the energy enters the skin, where the ink particles absorb them.

This light energy is composed of different wavelengths for each ink color. When directed over the tattooed area on your body, the energy enters the skin, where the ink particles absorb them.

The PicoSure laser is sent out in short and sharp bursts, which then shatter the ink particles into small, dust-like particles. The PicoSure laser is more effective than other alternative options because it breaks the ink apart more successfully, meaning that the particles are much smaller. This makes it easier for the body’s immune and lymphatic systems to get rid of them within a few weeks. Since the tattoo ink is no longer present underneath your skin, the tattoo naturally disappears.

Another reason PicoSure lasers are so effective is that they use PressureWave technology. This enables Dr. Kia to send just the right amount of light energy into the skin, leading to an efficient breaking down of the ink particles.

Many people have the assumption that laser tattoo removal is a painful experience. While this is not completely untrue, the procedure is not unbearable. In fact, many patients have reported that the experience and the feeling are kind of similar to the process of getting their tattoos. So, if you were able to sit through getting a tattoo you later regretted, there is no reason you cannot sit through the process of removing it.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF PICOSURE LASER TATTOO REMOVAL?

Unlike traditional laser tattoo removal methods, PicoSure technology makes use of not just heat and light energy, but also of pressure changes using the PressureWave system. If you feel uncomfortable with the procedure, Dr. Kia will do everything he can to make the process more bearable. Commonly, skin numbing and soothing agents are used to help alleviate some of the pain and discomfort you may experience during the procedure.

Below, we outline the benefits of PicoSure laser tattoo removal:

  • PicoSure laser is more effective compared to traditional laser tattoo removal because it breaks down the ink particles more finely, thanks to the PressureWave technology it uses.
  • Since the ink breaks down into fine, dust-like particles, the ink is removed from your body faster, so you can say goodbye to your unwanted tattoo in no time.
  • PicoSure is an extremely time-saving procedure, with average-sized tattoos taking only about ten minutes.
  • Even a stubborn tattoo that you may have failed to get rid of in the past can be effectively removed by PicoSure.
  • Tattoos of all colors, including multi-colored tattoos, can be easily removed.
