PicoSure Laser Q&A
What is PicoSure laser for tattoo removal?
PicoSure laser is a safe and effective treatment that successfully removes tattoos, including hard-to-remove tattoos previously treated with other lasers. Your doctor uses advanced laser energy to turn the ink particles of the tattoo into tiny, dust-like particles that your body absorbs and eliminates.
How many sessions does it take to remove a tattoo?
The number of sessions needed to remove your tattoo depends on your skin and the size and color of the tattoo. While other tattoo-removal treatments average six to eight sessions for results, PicoSure laser technology offers the benefits of fewer treatments and quicker results.
Most tattoos can be removed or significantly lightened in as few as two to three PicoSure laser sessions of about 10 minutes each. Your provider determines the appropriate number of sessions needed to help you feel good about your skin.
Does tattoo removal hurt?
Most patients consider tattoo removal about as painful as the actual tattoo process. Your doctor can minimize potential discomfort using numbing cream prior to treatment.
Can lasers remove acne scars?
The same laser technology used for tattoo removal can break down acne scars. PicoSure’s targeted laser energy helps scars disappear over time to reveal smoother skin.
Most patients experience improved skin in three treatments, with full results after seven treatments. Your provider determines an appropriate number of treatments based on the severity of your acne scarring and your personal goals.
What are the side effects of PicoSure laser treatment?
Most patients require little to no downtime after PicoSure laser treatments. Usually, they’re able to resume their regular activities immediately. Some people experience minor side effects, including:
- Temporary redness and swelling at the treatment site
- Loss of skin color
- Mild discomfort during treatment
Your doctor discusses post-treatment plan options to relieve side effects should you experience any after your laser treatment.
