Whether it’s the name of a band you used to like back in 1999 or an ex’s name, you’re itching to get rid of your unwanted tattoo. But how do you go about fading it so you can get your best results?
At El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, we use PicoSure Laser technology to fade the appearance of tattoos. Take a look at why we believe this is one of the best methods for fading your unwanted tattoo!
Tattoo Removal with PicoSure Laser Treatments
The PicoSure laser treatment technology works to fade unwanted tattoos by using pulses of light energy. These pulses are directed at the tattoo and work to break down the different color pigments. After absorbing the light’s energy, the pigment breaks down, making it that much easier for it to fade away into the dermal tissue (don’t worry, the process is completely safe).
The end result is smoother skin with a much less noticeable tattoo. In some cases (like with recent tattoos made of predominantly blue or black ink), the tattoo can be completely removed!
Does Tattoo Removal Hurt?
We won’t lie – tattoo removal can be uncomfortable, so it’s important to mentally prepare yourself for some discomfort during your session. We can also apply numbing solutions to your treatment area to help make you more comfortable during your laser tattoo removal session.
How Many Sessions Will I Need to Remove a Tattoo?
While every patient is different, most people need anywhere from six to eight laser tattoo removal treatments (spaced at least six weeks apart) to see results. The number of sessions you may need can be affected by:
- The size of the tattoo
- The colors used within the tattoo
- The age of the tattoo
- And more
