Tattoo Removal Q & A

What makes the PicoSure Laser unique?

The PicoSure Laser is the fastest laser in the world for tattoo removal, clearing tattoo ink in about half the number of treatments required by older lasers in the Arizona market. PicoSure is changing the tattoo removal experience. It requires fewer sessions and patients experience less pain.

How does PicoSure work?

PicoSure uses picosecond laser technology to remove tattoo ink. The concentrated beams of light disrupt the deeper layers of your skin. It leaves the surface of your skin unharmed, but powerfully targets ink for dissolution.

Picosure uses the power of a specialized wavelength of light filtered through a special lens that squeezes the targeted cells. The pressure breaks up the ink and prompts your body to produce new collagen and elastin.

Does tattoo removal with PicoSure hurt?

The sessions last just about 15 minutes and most people tolerate them just fine. Larger tattoos or removal of multiple areas of ink require longer sessions.

You’ll feel a sensation similar to the snap of a rubber band. The process is no more uncomfortable than your procedure to get the tattoo.

How many PicoSure tattoo removal sessions will I need?

The team at Revital-AZ Medical Spa & Laser Center develops a custom plan for you depending on:

  • The size of your tattoo
  • The type of ink that was used
  • The location of your tattoo
  • Your overall health and lifestyle 

When you come in for a consultation for evaluation of your tattoo, the staff can give you an estimate of many sessions it will take to erase it.

How long is the recovery time following tattoo removal?

PicoSure tattoo removal treatments require no downtime. Go back to all your daily activities right after your appointment. If you do experience any redness or swelling, it’s minimal and fades in a few hours.

One of the best things about PicoSure is the lack of recovery time. You’ll be able to return to work or other normal activities immediately after your appointment. If you do experience redness or swelling, it should be minimal and only last a few hours. There’s no need to take time off or make efforts to conceal your skin after PicoSure sessions.
