Getting a tattoo removed used to be a daunting prospect due to expensive price tags and painful treatment sessions. However, The Centre, P.C. in Mishawaka now offers PicoSure, the fastest and most efficient option for tattoo removal. Faster lasers produce less heat and therefore less damage to surrounding tissue, making it more precise and less painful.
In addition to tattoo removal, PicoSure can treat acne scars, wrinkles, pigmented lesions, and increase collagen production. Since the revolutionary treatment is safer and gentler than other tattoo removal options, results appear quickly and require minimal recovery time. Choose PicoSure if you are ready to quickly get rid of your tattoos or transform your skin’s appearance and health.
How PicoSure Works to Remove Tattoos
PicoSure utilizes short but intense laser bursts to break up ink particles within the skin. Once the laser breaks up ink pigments, the immune system absorbs the particles and naturally flushes them from the body. Over time, the tattoo particles will gradually fade through the lymphatic system and the skin will return to its natural color.
PicoSure uses shorter and stronger laser bursts than other tattoo removal technology, resulting in more effective results in less time. The incredibly short laser pulses ensure the skin is not at risk of thermal damage and scarring after treatment. Our Cynosure® PicoSure laser uses a specific light wavelength to target the tattoo ink in the skin. Minimal damage is done to the surrounding skin while providing maximum tattoo removal.
Removing Color Tattoos with PicoSure
The PicoSure technology successfully and efficiently removes both black and colored ink. The tattoo removal laser at our medical spa features four wavelengths to target a wide range of colors—even difficult-to-treat green and sky blue. As the tattoo is treated, laser energy gently vibrates and shatters the tattoo ink into easily eliminated microparticles.
Additional Benefits of PicoSure
Beyond tattoo removal, PicoSure treatments can help treat aging effects. The technology reduces visible aging signs by promoting the body’s natural healing processes and collagen production. Cosmetic concerns PicoSure can target include acne scarring, wrinkles, sagging skin, and uneven skin tone or texture.
Over time, the treatment sessions result in smoother skin texture and tone, resurfaced acne scars, and reduced wrinkles. PicoSure can also reduce skin imperfections on the neck, chest, hands, and arms. Rejuvenating effects on the skin are long-lasting after treatment, but additional sessions every six months are recommended to maintain enhancements.
Possible Complications of PicoSure
After a PicoSure treatment at our medical spa, a patient may experience redness, blisters, and swelling of the treated areas. Immediately after treatment, the skin may feel slightly sunburned for a few days. It is vital to avoid excessive sun exposure for several weeks after treatment to prevent hyperpigmentation.
The treatment works for most skin tones, textures, and tattoo colors, making PicoSure an ideal choice for anyone looking to improve their skin. Several treatment sessions every four to six weeks are necessary for more severe aging signs or stubborn tattoos, and five to 15 treatments are typically necessary to achieve full ink removal.
