Pico laser is a new generation of aesthetic lasers that don’t rely solely on heat to burn or melt away unwanted tattoo ink or melanin, the pigment that causes dark spots in your skin. Picosecond technology allows the ink to break up into smaller particles to be more easily absorbed. Pico energy is non-thermal and delivered using a photo-mechanical effect with high-peak powers and ultra-short pulse durations that shatter pigment without causing thermal damage.
The laser is proven effective at removing difficult tattoo ink colors, like orange, red, blue, green, and yellow.
Each session typically takes 10 to 15 minutes and most patients report only mild pain.
We ask you to check in 20-30 minutes before your appointment time to apply numbing cream, if you wish to be more comfortable during your treatment.
How many sessions are required depends on the size, color and age of your tattoo, but most tattoos are completely removed within two to six sessions.
