Tattoos are extremely popular, but as time passes, some people experience regrets. There are many different types of tattoo removal systems available, but some are more effective than others. PicoSure® tattoo removal is an extremely effective laser procedure in Columbus, Ohio. The ink is targeted by the laser, broken apart into fragments, then flushed out of the body by the immune system. It took decades to develop the PicoSure® technology. The procedure uses aesthetic lasers to remove the tattoo.
PicoSure® tattoo removal uses a laser to deliver short bursts at specific wavelengths. The wavelength is dependent on the treatment being used. Unlike the majority of tattoo removal laser treatments, this one does not require burning or heat to effectively remove the tattoo. Short, rapid pulse energy referred to as Picosecond technology penetrates the colors of the tattoo and breaks them apart. This technology is patented and more focused than standard nanosecond technology.
The pulse width causes a photomechanical effect to improve the results of the procedure. PicoSure® tattoo removal in Columbus, Ohio uses an advanced laser on the ink to break it apart into tiny particles. The lymphatic system of the body absorbs the particles so they can be eliminated naturally. The procedure can get rid of extremely stubborn ink and typically requires less treatments than traditional nanosecond lasers.
This procedure is effective, but multiple treatments are usually necessary to help ensure optimal results. This is just like with any other skin surfacing procedure. The length of time necessary for a session can be impacted by the age, color and size of the tattoo. The majority of tattoos can be removed completely in a series of treatment sessions.
The results offer an easier and faster solution. There is no real recovery time, and the individual can immediately resume their normal activities once the session has been completed. This is the reason so many people have the procedure done during a break from their other activities.
It is important to note this procedure has received approval from the FDA for more than just tattoo removal. This approval includes removing benign pigmented lesions, treatment for acne scars and wrinkles. The treatment is safe for every type of skin and effectively removes all of the ink in the tattoo, no matter what colors were used. This procedure is also recommended for removing previously treated, black and multicolored tattoos.
