How Laser Tattoo Removal Works
Laser tattoo removal with the CynoSure PicoSure system works by directing a powerful laser light into the tattoo, allowing the laser to shatter the tattoo ink into microscopic pieces that are then safely eliminated from your body.
All tattoo ink colors can be effectively dissolved using the Cynosure PicoSure laser, however, because many complex tattoos are comprised of multiple layers of ink, the average tattoo requires 4-6 treatments for full removal.
What to Expect During Laser Tattoo Removal
Most patients report minimal discomfort during the laser tattoo removal treatment. Some say the sensation they experience is similar to that of having the tattoo done, while others report feeling no sensation at all. Any discomfort can be effectively managed using a topical cooling cream.
Some patients experience a temporary whitening of their skin where the tattoo was removed. This discoloration resolves once the natural pigmentation of the skin regenerates, a process that usually takes a few weeks.
