PicoSure Tattoo Removal – You Don’t Have to Live with Tattoo Regret
Summer is almost here and that means we will soon be breaking out the summer wardrobe and showing off some skin. For those individuals with tattoos they love, this is an opportunity to display them proudly. Unfortunately, for those with “regrettable tattoos”, wearing skin-baring summer clothes can cause anxiety. Although tattoos are becoming more acceptable in the workplace, some employers still frown on them. If you find yourself avoiding summer styles to hide your tattoo from your boss or just because you wish you had never gotten it in the first place, PicoSure tattoo removal could be the perfect solution.
Why PicoSure Tattoo Removal?
Traditional tattoo removal methods were painful, expensive, and often delivered less-than-stellar results. If you’ve chosen to live with an unwanted tattoo rather than go through the pain and expense only to be left with unsightly remnants of it, PicoSure tattoo removal will have you rethinking that decision.
PicoSure is highly effective compared to previously used procedures, including Q-switched lasers. PicoSure doesn’t use heat or burning for tattoo removal. Instead, it delivers short bursts of patented PressureWave technology to penetrate the tattoo colors and break down the ink into tiny particles. The particles are then eliminated naturally by your body’s immune system. FDA-approved for tattoo removal, PicoSure laser is effective on multiple colors of tattoo inks, including blue, green, and black.
How Much Does PicoSure Cost?
The cost of any tattoo removal procedure depends on the tattoo. The larger the tattoo, the more colors it has, and the more treatments required – all of this will impact the cost. While PicoSure may not be the least expensive option, it typically requires fewer treatments and it is the most effective option available.
Fewer treatments can help to reduce the cost and, you know how that old saying goes – you get what you pay for. Opting for the least expensive treatment can have you end up with results that are more unattractive or embarrassing than your original tattoo. When evaluating the options, keep in mind that PicoSure tattoo removal is the premier treatment and once that tattoo is gone, it’s gone forever. If you really want your tattoo removed, isn’t it worth the expense?
What to Expect with PicoSure
While PicoSure tattoo removal is better than the procedures used previously, it is not pain-free. Many patients have reported that it feels similar to being repeatedly snapped with a rubber band. It is safe to say that getting the tattoo was more painful than having it removed with the PicoSure laser. However, it is important to keep in mind that everyone has a different level of tolerance when it comes to pain.
As we previously mentioned, how many treatments necessary to eliminate your tattoo depends on the tattoo. Your PicoSure provider will evaluate your tattoo initially to provide you an estimate of the number of treatments. That number can vary depending on your response to the treatments and you will need to wait for 6 to 8 weeks in between treatments. It’s important to avoid overexposure to the sun before and after treatments. Sunburn prior to treatment will make it more painful. After treatment, your skin will be sensitive and sunburn more easily.
