Tattoo removal has never been so safe, fast, or effective!
Dr Banks and Dr. Milkovich are pleased to announce that they have added PicoSure® tattoo removal to the list of services available at MD ESTHETICS.
PicoSure® is the safest, fastest and most effective laser tattoo removal technology available today, removing coloured inks from deep within the dermis by breaking up the ink into particles. PicoSure® is faster and more effective than the older Q-Switch laser treatments, which means fewer treatments, and improved comfort.
There are many reasons for wanting to remove or change the appearance of a tattoo. Poor quality artwork, new employment prospects, perhaps you’re wearing a name from old relationship or that image you loved in your teens is just not who you are today. You are not alone. Many of the 1 in 4 adults aged 25 – 50 who have tattoos, want to erase the ink. According to the latest figures from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 45,224 tattoo removal procedures were done in 2013, up from 40,801 in 2011.
Until PicoSure® laser technology, it was difficult to remove or fade multicoloured tattoos especially those with blue, green and red ink. PicoSure® laser technology can significantly fade or completely remove your unwanted tattoo in much less time than the older Q-Switch laser treatments.
How does PicoSure® work?
With PicoSure, ultra-short pulses (one trillionth of a second in length) hit the ink particle with a pressure so great, the ink breaks up into tiny dust-like particles. Because the particles are so small, they are more readily absorbed and eliminated by the body. This can mean better clearance of the tattoo and fewer treatments overall.
With PicoSure, even dark, stubborn blue, green and red inks, as well as previously treated, recalcitrant tattoos can be removed.
How does the PicoSure® treatment feel?
The new PicoSure® laser is more comfortable than the older conventional Q-switched lasers. Your MD ESTHETICS physician will make every effort to ensure your procedures are as comfortable as possible.
How many PicoSure® treatments will I need?
The number of PicoSure® laser tattoo removal treatments will depend on the colour and type of tattoo ink, the size of the tattoo and the depth of tattoo ink into the skin.
PicoSure® laser treatments are spaced about 6 weeks apart. Depending on the size of your tattoo, each treatment takes about 2-3 minutes. Multiple treatments are recommended for optimal results.
Your MD ESTHETICS physician will assess your tattoo and determine how many PicoSure® laser treatments will be required.
