What is the Pico tattoo removal Laser?

The Pico Laser is the gold-standard in laser tattoo removal because it is able to remove tattoos faster and more efficiently than other laser on the market. It works by using photo-acoustic energy that sends a pulsed shock wave to tattoos pigments, breaking them up into little pieces. There is little to no heat generated in that process. If your tattoo were a rock, the pico laser would be shattering the rock into sand. Older lasers like Q-switch laser would be shattering the rock into larger pieces like pebbles. Because the Pico Laser is able to break the tattoo pigment into sand instead of pebbles, it is able to remove the tattoo faster. This means less treatments, better results and less cost for you!

How many treatments do I need?

The number of treatments depends on the intensity of the pigment, the colors and the size of your tattoo. With the Pico Laser, the average tattoo is usually 80-90% cleared in 4-6 treatments. Older lasers like Q-switch and Nd-Yag usually result in 50% clearance and will take as many as 20 treatments.

Am I going to be left with a hypopigmented spot where my tattoo was?

The near absence of heat in Pico Laser technology means that there is little risk of hypopigmentation that is more commonly seen in other older tattoo lasers like Q-switch or Nd-Yag.

Is the treatment painful? What painless techniques does Precision offer?

There are a few methods we use to achieve a very comfortable laser tattoo removal experience.

Option 1: topical medication. We use a topical numbing cream that is applied to the skin for about 30 minutes. The cream is a specially formulated numbing cream that consists of 3 different ingredients. This cream works by blocking the local pain signals. This method is very common and the preferred method for treatment of very small to small tattoos.

Option 2: injectable medication. We inject numbing medication under the skin and wait for about 15 minutes. This method is usually reserved for large tattoos.

The type of painless technique will be discussed at the time of your consultation and depends on the size, color and location of the tattoo.

How long does the procedure take?

Every treatment usually takes about 5-15 minutes depending on the size of the tattoo. If numbing is chosen, that is usually done prior to the procedure time.

Can people with dark/olive/golden skin colors get this treatment?

Yes! The Pico Laser is FDA cleared for tattoo removal in ALL skin types.

How much does the Pico Laser cost?

We typically charge about $200-$300 per session. Come see us for a free consultation! We are usually always running specials.
