PicoSure works in a similar way to the Q-Switched lasers, we have been offering treatment using Q-Switched lasers for many years and treat up to 130 a week with them. Q-Switched lasers are considered the gold standard when it comes to removing unwanted tattoos.
Laser treatments have minimal side effects when it comes to the removal of tattoos, they use thermal energy to heat up ink particles in the unwanted tattoo. Once the ink particles have been broken down by the laser they can be safely removed from the body.
City Tattoo Removal can still completely remove the majority of tattoos with our Q-switch lasers. The Q-switched laser is a safe and effective way to remove tattoos and we have seen great results using Q-switched lasers to treat multi-coloured tattoos on nearly all skin types.
But Now We Have an Even Better Treatment Option
Introducing PicoSure. PicoSure uses ultra-short pulses of laser light, the pulses that PicoSure machines create are one trillionth of a second in length, 100 times shorter than nanosecond technology. The shorter pulses can hit the ink particles with far greater pressure than Q-Switched and similar tattoo removal lasers. PicoSure allows City Tattoo Removal to use less energy compared with Q-switch lasers, the result of this is even fewer complications of scarring and hypopigmentation. With PicoSure there is no heating of the skin this provides less pain than previous laser machines, improved recovery and fewer complications with the skin that surrounds the treated area.
How Does PicoSure Work?
The ultra-short pulses break the ink into tiny dust-like particles. These ink particles are smaller than Q-Switched lasers can create making them easier and quicker for the patients immune system to remove. The ink particles being easier for the body to remove can mean better clearance of the tattoo and that less overall treatmentsare required.
We can even use PicoSure to remove recalcitrant tattoos, recalcitrant tattoos are tattoos that still have clinically apparent pigment after 10 or more previous laser treatment sessions, these tattoos have stopped fading in response to treatment with other lasers. Trials of the PicoSure resulted in more than 80% overall tattoo removal, even on the most difficult colours to remove (green and blue ink) PicoSure achieved 94% clearance of the pigment.
We are pleased to offer all clients a free initial consultation and patch test, treatments are carried out every 4-8 weeks and topical numbing cream can be applied to the area being treated. The number of treatments required depends on the size of the tattoo to be treated and the colour of the ink that it contains, with PicoSure tattoos can usually be removed in 3-4 treatment sessions.
PicoSure is more expensive then using a standard tattoo removal machine but it a much more effective and faster then any other machine. To view our price list for the PicoSure Tattoo Removal, please click
