All about tattoo removal
Sometimes tattoo removal is desired, and it’s great to know there’s a device that can do this well. Our Picoway laser is one of the best for tattoo removal. With three different wavelengths of laser light, most colors can be addressed. Black pigment tends to be the easiest and fastest to remove, however, the Picoway laser is safe and effective on a wide variety of colors. The size of the tattoo determines cost, but it can take 6-12 treatments usually 6-8 weeks apart to get to final results. Some tattoos can be completely removed, but with others a bare outline might still be visible. Care instructions must be followed to get the best results, and there may be temporary bruising or crusting of the treated area. Topical numbing agents can help decrease discomfort, if needed. We always offer a complimentary consultation with one of our Laser Specialists to ensure our patients are comfortable and knowledgeable about the process.
