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.

    I have hated my tattoo for years and wanted to get it removed. After a painful experience with a local laser center, I sought out a different provider and found Dr. Dass. He uses the PicoSure laser instead of the traditional Q-switched laser. My first session with him was painless from beginning to end. He numbed the entire area! His staff are caring and warm. I am so lucky I found Dr. Dass!*

    So…I was in Los Angeles for a conference this summer and realized that I needed liposuction because I’ve been too busy with work. I decided to have it done while I was out there since Beverly Hills is the plastic surgery capital of the world. I had a consult and immediately booked Smartlipo on my belly and love handles. It was perfect because I had the weekend to recover before flying back home. Its like night and day, I’ve gone down like 4 inches on my waist and the love handles are completely gone. Two thumbs up, way up.*

    I had to write a review for Dr Dass, because I absolutely love the results from my breast augmentation . He spent time with me and I didn’t feel rushed. Went with the Sientra implants for my piece of mind. The recovery was not as bad as I thought it was going to be, and he saw me for all of my follow-ups. I highly recommend seeing him.*
