Tattoo removal is a painful procedure especially when done the traditional way. Now, there is a less painful way to make facial rejuvenation a reality. PicoSure is a safe and effective way to remove tattoo. PicoSure is an FDA-approved laser technology designed for the removal of tattoos, moles, acne scars, and wrinkles. This article will provide an overview of PicoSure laser technology.
What is PicoSure tattoo removal?
PicoSure uses short energy bursts for safe and effective tattoo removal. The bursts causes tattoo ink to break down into tiny particles. The procedure is effective in getting rid of ink colors and brown spots through ultra-second picosecond energy pulses into the skin. Using a technology called PressureWave, the procedure reduces ink and brown spots to tiny particles and then allows the body to eliminate them. When used in facial rejuvenation, it results to clearer skin and boosts recovery period.
Unlike traditional laser removal techniques, PicoSure effectively removes a wide range of tattoo colors and types. The technology delivers better results with fewer treatments. Before undergoing laser tattoo removal, you need to consult a doctor first so that they can inspect your tattoo and recommend the best form of treatment for the best result.
How quick is the recovery period?
It is worth noting that the period of recovery after a facial rejuvenation procedure will vary depending on the patient. Some may experience recovery after the initial treatment while others may need few treatments before they fully recover. It is important that you follow the recommended treatment procedure to avoid possible complications or avoid risk of scarring.
It is also recommended that you limit physical activity for the first 24-48 hours to keep the treated area from being damaged or irritated. You should also limit sun exposure until the treated area has completely healed.
How safe is PicoSure?
PicoSure is so safe that even if only a small portion of the tattoo is removed, it will not affect the surrounding areas. There have been reported side effects from Pico laser treatment. However, it is important that you comply with after care instructions to avoid any adverse effects.
How much is the cost of ink removal procedure?
The price for ink removal depends on several factors. It may be based on the tattoo size or the number of session treatments needed. During the consultation, the specialist will present you with a price quotation for the treatment. Unfortunately, laser tattoo removal is not covered by insurance companies since it is considered as elective cosmetic.
Thanks to PicoSure, you would no longer have to worry about the pain and side effects associated with traditional removal methods.
