Key Laser Institute is proud to offer the PicoSure® Tattoo, one of the first laser tattoo removal treatments that uses a picosecond laser. Our tattoo removal process is safe and versatile enough to work effectively on almost every part of the body.
How Does PicoSure® Work?
PicoSure® removes tattoos by delivering short bursts of energy (one-trillionth of a second) into the tattoo’s pigments. That burst of energy breaks up the pigment into smaller pieces, which allows it to be slowly absorbed by the body and gradually flushed out. What’s remarkable about the PicoSure® is, it can break up the pigments in smaller, much finer particles than other laser systems.
What to Expect.
Before your treatment, we will take photos of the selected area so we can track the progress of the tattoo removal. Some of our patients have reported the treatment akin to a rubber band snapping on the skin. We will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area to help make the treatment as comfortable as possible. Multiple passes might be necessary depending on the different colors in the tattoo. Your entire treatment from beginning to end, including taking pictures and applying the numbing cream, will only take about an hour to complete.
Will PicoSure® Work On All Kinds Of Tattoos?
While other laser tattoo removal methods don’t work as well on blue and green pigments, Picosure® works on different kinds of pigments, even the difficult ones.
How Many Treatments Will Be Required?
The number of treatments recommended will all depend on factors like the size of the tattoo, the colors on the tattoo, the patient’s skin, and where the tattoo is located. On average, patients have a series of 3-10 treatments that are scheduled 8 weeks apart. Dr. Key will develop a treatment plan specific to your needs.
Can I Remove Only Part Of My Tattoo?
Our tattoo removal system is precise enough to target incredibly small areas that allow us to isolate and remove parts of the tattoo without harming the other sections.
Will This Work On Tattoos That I’ve Already Tried To Remove?
Yes. Our laser system is unique because it specializes in removing tattoos that have previously undergone several tattoo removal treatments.
