Maybe you got a tattoo of a kitty when you were younger that just doesn’t represent your mature ways any more, or, possibly, the name “Johnny” no longer means the same to you as it did before. Whatever the reason may be for you to want to be rid of a tattoo, our New York dermatologist can safely and easily remove it using the PicoSure Laser.
Tattoos consist of ink that is placed in the deep layer of your skin, known as the dermis. Since this layer of your skin does not shed like the outer layers, tattoos remain permanent. In order to remove a tattoo, the skin cells that contain the ink must be removed.
Our dermatologist, Dr. Bruce Katz, offers a revolutionary option for tattoo removal, known as the PicoSure™ laser. PicoSure™ operates at speeds that are measured in trillionths of a second so it can remove your tattoos in half the time of other nanosecond lasers.
The laser uses PressureWave technology to effectively shatter the ink particles and allows your body to naturally remove them.
It will take a few sessions to completely remove your tattoo, but the PicoSure™ laser works quickly and efficiently, so your tattoo will be removed in fewer sessions than with traditional tattoo-removal lasers.
Dr. Katz has even been shown on The Today Show and Z100, a popular radio show, demonstrating the effectiveness and painlessness of the PicoSure™ laser.
