Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, CA patients enjoy effective laser tattoo removal
If you went from rejoicing to regretting your tattoo, you’ve come to the right place. In a skilled specialist’s hands, advanced technologies remove body art that wouldn’t budge easily or sufficiently in the past. Laser tattoo removal in the Los Angeles-Beverly Hills CA area is even more effective and efficient, because Dr. Dennis Dass understands the device makes the difference.
PicoSure represents a type of technology known as “short-pulse lasers,” which release bursts of energy in trillionths of a second.
Why this matters
Traditional tattoo removal methods carried risks like scarring, and often didn’t produce satisfactory results. Lasers have become the preferred means to remove body art, due to improved safety, results, and reduced side effects. Lasers target the pigment in your tattoo, leaving tissue outside of the treatment area untouched. PicoSure does this, but it has additional benefits. Its ability to rapidly flash minimizes heat, which means less damage to surrounding skin and decreased risk of injury. The photomechanical effect produced during treatment is very good at eliminating ink of all colors on various skin types. Due to the power of the pulses, these ultra-short bursts clear your tattoo in about one-third the time of earlier-generation lasers.
Good things to know
Before the laser is applied to your tattoo, the area is numbed. Our patients most commonly describe the feel of PicoSure as like a rubber band snapping against the skin. Most average-sized tattoos can be treated in 10 minutes. We’ve found 80 percent of patients see tattoo clearance in six sessions spaced four to six weeks apart. Since PicoSure’s pulses shatter ink into minuscule particles, your tattoo is easily, safely, and naturally cleared by your body’s lymphatic system.
Treatment varies from patient to patient, depending on factors like:
- Tattoo size, complexity, location
- Ink density, depth, and color
- Skin type
Following treatment, your skin is more sensitive to the sun. Wear 30 or higher SPF sunscreen and take other protective measures. PicoSure tattoo removal is permanent. But if you prefer to modify existing body art, ask us about tattoo lightening. Call (855) 496-4646.Back to PicoSure Laser Tattoo Removal Page
