How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
If you undergo laser tattoo removal, you can expect the PicoSure laser to transmit short pulses of heat energy into your skin. These pulses work to get rid of the tattoo ink under your skin. As soon as your tattoo ink particles are broken apart, they’ll be naturally absorbed in your body and your tattoo will disappear.
The PicoSure laser allows for tattoos to fade quicker and with fewer treatments than conventional lasers. Contrary to popular belief, laser tattoo removal does not come with extensive downtime. While each treatment may lead to minor swelling and redness, the downtime is typically less than five days. This is great news if you lead a busy lifestyle and cannot take much time off due to work and/or family obligations.
