Expert Tattoo Removal Service

Using the PicoSure® Pro to deliver energy to the targeted area which breaks up tattoo ink into tiny particles – these particles are absorbed and then removed by your body. Unlike other lasers, PicoSure® Pro uses pressure instead of heat to provide tattoo removals on black, blue, and green ink safely and effectively. As a result of its high intensity energy, PicoSure® Pro is effective in treating stubborn tattoos.

What Does Treatment Look Like?

The medical aesthetician or nurse will first cleanse and numb the treatment site with topical lidocaine for 15 minutes to help minimize discomfort. During treatment, a slight snapping sound will be heard as the laser passes over the treatment area. Patients may feel some mild discomfort. Slight whitening/frosting of the tattoo will appear. A layer of ointment and a bandage will be applied after the treatment.

What Do We Use?

The FDA-approved PicoSure Pro laser delivers rapid energy to vibrate tiny particles, shatter pigment, and increase collagen production without the use of heat. The PicoSure Pro device activates cell signalling to stimulate your skin's natural refreshing processes for the safe treatment of tattoo removal.

Frequently Asked Questions

After treatment

How long till my tattoo is removed?

The results of tattoo removal treatment will appear gradually as your skin’s natural regenerative abilities. For most patients, results are first visible about 2 or 3 weeks after the first appointment. Your results will continue to improve until your last treatment, or until optimal results have been achieved.

As each client’s skin and tattoos are unique, we will need to do a consultation to determine how many sessions are needed. In your consult, our expert clinical team will create a custom treatment plan for you to ensure the best and most effective results!

Is there any downtime?

After completing a PicoSure® Pro treatment for skin rejuvenation, you may experience slight redness and minor swelling for a few hours. Recovery tends to be quick, and downtime is minimal.

How does it work?

Throughout a treatment laser energy is delivered to the unwanted tattoo, targeting the ink and breaking it down into smaller particles. The tiny particles are then eliminated through the body’s natural processes, resulting in faster clearance with fewer treatments than traditional lasers.

How long are treatments?

Treating an average sized tattoo typically takes around 10 minutes. Treatments can be longer depending on the size of the tattoo being treated.

Is PicoSure Pro painful?
There can be discomfort during treatment. However, we take care to apply numbing creams to your skin to ensure that you are comfortable during your treatment sessions.
How many treatments are needed?

A series of treatments are typically recommended 6-8 weeks apart. The number of treatments needed is dependent on variables such as ink type, size of the tattoo, location on the body, lifestyle habits, etc. Work with your provider to come up with a plan that’s right for you!
