Tattoo Removal Q & A

What is tattoo removal?

Tattoo removal at Gorgeous D’Luxe Aesthetics utilizes the cutting-edge PicoSure laser to get rid of tattoos you no longer want on your skin. The procedure uses short-pulse laser technology and gentle pressure to remove tattoo ink or other unwanted skin pigmentation.

The PicoSure laser gets rid of all colors of tattoo ink on all skin types. It removes tattoos in fewer treatments than traditional tattoo removal techniques. PicoSure laser treatment is effective for:

  • Hard-to-remove black ink
  • Previously treated tattoos
  • Multi-colored tattoos, including green and blue pigments

PicoSure’s ultrafast pulses minimize heat, so you’ll experience less damage to the surrounding skin. The laser works by breaking up the ink into dust-like particles, which get absorbed and eliminated by your body’s immune system.

What should I expect during tattoo removal?

Your aesthetics specialist reviews your medical history and examines your skin to determine if you’re a good candidate for PicoSure laser treatment. It’s noninvasive with little discomfort. Tattoo removal might feel like getting a tattoo, or a rubber band snapping against your skin.

Your aesthetics specialist uses a numbing cream to eliminate any discomfort associated with PicoSure laser treatment. Your procedure might take about 10-15 minutes to complete, depending on the size of your tattoo.

How many treatments will I require?

Your provider lets you know what to expect during the procedure and how many PicoSure laser treatments you’ll need to achieve the desired results. Your personalized treatment plan may include a series of 4-10 sessions, depending on the type of tattoo you have and your skin type.

What happens after treatment?

Tattoo removal is a permanent procedure. You may experience mild swelling or skin lightening after PicoSure treatment, but this side effect is temporary and subsides when healing is complete. There’s no downtime after the procedure, so you can resume normal everyday activities right away.

After 6-8 weeks, your doctor may recommend additional treatments until you achieve optimal results. The PicoSure laser can also eliminate other types of skin pigmentation, acne scars, and wrinkles. The aesthetics experts at Gorgeous D’Luxe Aesthetics personalize a treatment plan just for you.
