How Does Tattoo Removal Work?

How Does Tattoo Removal Work?

At one time, that tattoo on your forearm seemed like a good idea. But as you get older and your tastes change, you may no longer be happy to show off that ink, choosing to hide it under long sleeves or makeup.

If you’re ready to finally get rid of that unwanted tattoo for good, the experienced team at Ego offers advanced technology to deliver optimal results. Our team is trained in the PicoSure® laser system and can customize a tattoo removal plan to help you achieve your desired results.

The power of PicoSure

The PicoSure laser system uses specialized technology to successfully eliminate different colors of tattoo ink. The patented PressureWave™ technology delivers ultra-short wavelengths of laser energy below the surface of your skin, targeting the pigments of ink that make up your tattoo.

The pulses of energy move at a very high speed to break up the ink into microscopic, dust-like particles. While powerful enough to destroy the ink, PicoSure technology doesn’t harm the surrounding skin. You can rely on the system to address a variety of tattoo colors, including greens, blues, and blacks.

The PicoSure is also a great option if you have tattoos previously treated that seem too stubborn to remove. The precision of the laser technology can reduce even the darkest ink color in just a few treatments.

Natural ink disposal

In the weeks after your treatment, your body processes the disintegrated ink naturally, as the lymphatic system flushes out destroyed ink particles as waste.

It may take some time for you to see a significant reduction in the intensity of the ink colors, but after additional laser treatments, your tattoo will continue to fade until it’s no longer visible on your skin.

Customized treatments ensure great results

To ensure you get the results you want, our team will create a treatment plan based on the location of the tattoo, its size, and ink colors. Achieving your results can take several laser sessions that are scheduled 6-8 weeks apart.

During your consultation, you’ll receive a timeline for treatments, so you’ll know what to expect. For tattoos on your arms or legs, you may need additional treatments to successfully reduce the ink colors.

Benefits of PicoSure laser tattoo removal

Not only is the PicoSure laser system effective at eliminating unwanted tattoo ink, but it also does the work without side effects or the need for anesthesia. You can receive a topical anesthetic before each session to prevent discomfort or pain.

Since laser treatments don’t affect surrounding skin, you don’t have to worry about risks of scarring, and there’s no downtime associated with laser tattoo removal. Following your appointment, you can get right back to your usual activities without needing to recover from treatment.

Our certified health care professionals review your medical history and evaluate the tattoo you want to remove during your consultation to ensure laser removal with PicoSure is the right option for you. PicoSure technology is safe for all skin types, and as long as you’re in good overall health, you can successfully receive in-office laser treatments without risk.

Don’t wait another minute to finally address that embarrassing tattoo. Schedule a tattoo removal appointment now using the online booking feature or by calling our office.
