Learn About the Benefits of the PicoSure Tattoo Removal System

People get tattoos for many reasons. Some of these reasons turn out to be not too sound, based on the growth of tattoo removal services. If you chose to be tattooed and now you’re choosing to remove it, DermSurgery Associates in Houston, TX has good news. Let’s learn about the PicoSure tattoo removal system.

The idea behind a tattoo is that it should be permanent – and in the not-too-distant past, they were all permanent. This meant that after you got the artwork on your shoulder, back, chest, calf or wherever, you could start rehearsing what you’ll someday say to your grandchildren: “Granny never really rode a Harley Davidson, she was just a little out of her mind back in the day and decided to get a tattoo of one on her neck.”

Now, long before it’s grandma time, you can have that motorcycle tattoo taken away with the PicoSure tattoo removal process.

What is Picosure and how does it work for tattoo removal?

PicoSure is a picosecond laser treatment that is very popular in dermatological circles. It uses a specific wavelength to effectively target red, yellow and orange tattoo colors.

Along with safe and effective tattoo removal, PicoSure

  • can repair scars left behind by acne
  • is used in wrinkle repair and pigmentation repair
  • treats sun spots, brown spots and sun damage

Using advanced PressureWave technology, PicoSure targets specific areas without damaging surrounding skin. When applied for tattoo removal, ink shades that were previously difficult to remove with outdated methods come clean easily and safely with PicoSure.

Essentially, this treatment delivers heat in quick bursts to the target area. For removing tattoos, the laser breaks up tattoo ink into particles that can then be eliminated naturally by the body. The results are truly amazing.

PicoSure laser is an ideal, dermatologist-recommended treatment for tattoo removal and other skin issues on virtually any part of the body including the hands, face, legs, arms and neck. The process is totally non-invasive and involves no surgery. It’s considered to be among the very best and easiest methods for clearing the skin of virtually any kind of unsightly discoloration.

Our skilled dermatologists will meet with you and evaluate your situation and tell you how PicoSure can make a huge, positive difference in your appearance.
