Tattoos are meant to be permanent. When you get a tattoo, the artist uses a needle to inject ink into the dermis, or second layer of skin.
Your body recognizes the tattoo as a wound and sends white blood cells to remove the ink particles, but the ink particles are too large to be absorbed. The result is a permanent tattoo.
But, just because a tattoo can last forever, that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with it. Tattoo removal uses laser energy to break up ink pigment so it can be carried away by white blood cells and absorbed by your body.
Over a series of treatment sessions, Stacie targets your unwanted tattoo with PicoSure®, an FDA-cleared laser tattoo removal system. The ink pigment breaks up and the tattoo fades from your skin.
PicoSure treats all tattoo ink colors on all skin types. The PicoSure laser uses extremely fast bursts of energy to vibrate and shatter both black and colored tattoo ink, breaking it into small particles that your body can absorb.
PicoSure is one of the only tattoo removal lasers that removes stubborn colored tattoos and treats almost any skin type and color. It selectively destroys tattoo ink without damaging surrounding skin or tissue.
Dermabrasion and other methods of tattoo removal aren’t as effective, and often cause scarring. PicoSure safely penetrates the surface layer of skin, targeting only the tattoo ink you want removed.
Stacie begins by examining your unwanted tattoo. The number of treatment sessions you need depends on the age, size, colors, and location of the tattoo. Most tattoo removals require a few sessions to break up ink particles.
Each treatment session takes up to 20 minutes. Many clients say laser treatment feels like a rubber band being snapped on your skin.
Your tattoo-removal sessions are scheduled between six and eight weeks apart to give your skin time to recover. Full tattoo removal can take up to a year, depending on your body’s healing rate.
With the help of Wisconsin Laser Center, you can erase your unwanted tattoos. Call the clinic or request your first appointment online to find out more about tattoo removal with PicoSure.
