Experienced NYC dermatologist Dr. Bruce Katz is proud to offer the revolutionary PicoSure™ laser (by Cynosure®) for faster and more effective tattoo removal. PicoSure™ is the first and only picosecond laser designed for aesthetic use, operating at speeds measured in trillionths of a second. PicoSure™ can clear tattoos in half the time of a traditional nanosecond laser, and is even effective on tattoos that have failed to completely fade after previous treatment.
If you have a tattoo you want to remove, call us today at (888) 610-3133 to schedule a laser tattoo removal consultation.
How Does PicoSure™ Work?
PicoSure™ uses photomechanical PressureWave technology, which is capable of shattering even the smallest targeted ink particles. The laser’s ultra-short pulse duration creates an intense impact, breaking up the tattoo ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated from your body. Additionally, the width of the picosecond pulse is 100 times shorter than a nanosecond laser, enabling more precision and clearance than ever before.
All of these advancements allow PicoSure™ to remove tattoos in fewer treatments, and without harm to the surrounding tissue.
What to Expect from PicoSure™ Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment
The number of treatments you will need to fully remove your tattoo will depend on a number of factors, including:
- The size of the tattoo
- The ink color
- The depth of the tattoo
However, since PicoSure™ is one hundred times faster than any other laser on the market, you will require fewer sessions overall in order to achieve your desired results. Even dark blue and green inks – which are usually the most difficult to remove – can be effectively cleared with less treatment.
Laser tattoo removal feels similar to the process of getting a tattoo. If you cannot tolerate the sensation, we can numb the area prior to your procedure for optimal comfort. You may notice some bruising, redness, or crusting after treatment, but these effects will quickly fade within a week.
