Tips on Getting Rid of Unwanted Tattoos

Do you seek to zap an unwanted tattoo from your body? Tattoos act as constant souvenirs of some skeletons you would rather remain buried. Luckily, with technological advancements, tattoo removal is a possible experience. With many specialists out there, it is crucial to choose your removal partner wisely for reliable results. For Conroe tattoo removal, contact Dr. Kyle Scarborough and his team of elite professionals for cutting-edge PicoSure® tattoo removal services.

How PicoSure Tattoo Removal Works

The tattoo removal process entails using special lasers that deliver pulses of intense light through the top layers of your skin, focusing on the ink particles. The light aims to break the ink into several tiny particles that your body absorbs. After absorption, your body’s lymphatic system eradicates the ink gradually, for up to eight weeks.

At Family Life Medical, your physician uses Cynosure’s world-class PicoSure® tattoo removal system to precisely target the ink while leaving your skin intact. After treatment, you will experience frosting or a slight whitening in your skin. However, these effects fade immediately. Also, you may witness a swelling or mild redness around the target area. To help keep the area dry and moist and to protect your skin, Dr Scarborough gives you in-depth aftercare instructions for best results.

For proper fragmentation of the ink particles, you will need multiple treatment sessions according to the depth of the ink and other considerations.

What is PicoSure Tattoo Removal?

Before the introduction of PicoSure, Q-switched lasers were regarded as the option for tattoo removal. Q-switched lasers employ thermal energy to heat up and shatter the ink particles, breaking them down into small dust-like particles that are easy to get absorbed and eliminated by your body. PicoSure technology is more effective since the pulses are more rapid, frequent, and precise.

How Much Will It Cost to Remove a Tattoo?

 The cost of eliminating your tattoo depends on such factors as the number of treatments sessions needed and the size of your tattoo. Your insurance company may fail to cover for your tattoo removal as it is considered an elective cosmetic procedure. After a consultation, Dr Scarborough will give you a fair estimate for your treatment series.

Benefits of PicoSure Tattoo Removal

PicoSure technology allows several benefits. It has proven successful for wiping out previously treated tattoos that were not effectively removed. This technology is also efficient for multicoloured and deeper set tattoos, including blues and greens.

In comparison to traditional tattoo removal methods, PicoSure demands less treatments to remove your tattoo and guarantees better results. Akin to the process of getting a tattoo, PicoSure tattoo removal is a quick and relatively painless procedure.
