What should I expect?

Treatments for an average sized tattoo typically take about 10 minutes, but larger or more complex tattoos can take longer.

Laser tattoo removal has been described as feeling similar to the actual tattooing process. PicoSure relies on pressure changes instead of just heat to break apart ink particles but some patients may feel some discomfort. Your treatment provider should be able to provide aids to make your experience more comfortable.

  • Number of treatments needed is dependent on variables such as ink characteristics, size of tattoo,
    location on body, and lifestyle habits
  • Treatments typically occur every 6-8 weeks and your treatment provider will develop a treatment plan to meet your individual needs.

Patients and treatment providers have reported better clearance (disappearance) of tattoos with improved recovery time. You can expect excellent results with PicoSure.
