How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
Laser tattoo removal is a highly advanced and effective procedure designed to eliminate unwanted tattoos from the skin. It offers a safe and controlled method for gradually fading and, in many cases, completely removing tattoos that no longer align with your preferences or lifestyle.
The tattoo removal process relies on specialised laser technology that targets the tattoo ink while leaving the surrounding skin largely unaffected. PicoSure is a cutting-edge laser technology used in the field of dermatology and aesthetics. It's primarily known for its exceptional capabilities in tattoo removal and skin rejuvenation. PicoSure is highly effective in removing tattoos, even those with stubborn and multicolored ink. Its ultra-short pulses of laser energy break down the tattoo ink into tiny particles, making it easier for the body's natural processes to eliminate them. This results in faster and more complete tattoo removal compared to traditional lasers.
The name "PicoSure" is derived from "pico," which represents the extremely short pulse duration of the laser, measured in picoseconds (trillionths of a second).
If you're considering parting ways with a tattoo, laser tattoo removal is the go-to solution and you can book your treatment online with Clear Skin Laser Treatments via our website. If you would like to speak to a member of our team first, please fill in the form to schedule a call-back.
Laser Tattoo Removal FAQs
1. Is tattoo removal painful?
PicoSure laser tattoo removal is often described as less painful compared to some other tattoo removal methods, but pain perception can vary from person to person. The sensation during a PicoSure treatment is typically likened to a series of quick, intense snaps with a rubber band or a tingling sensation. Many individuals find the discomfort to be tolerable, especially with the use of the Cryo Cooler. The level of pain or discomfort experienced may depend on various factors, including your pain threshold, the location of the tattoo, the size of the tattoo, and the colours of the ink. Additionally, each laser pulse is very short, lasting only picoseconds (trillionths of a second), which means the discomfort is brief.
2. How does tattoo removal work?
Tattoo removal is typically performed using lasers that emit specific wavelengths of light. These lasers break down the tattoo ink into smaller particles, which are then gradually eliminated by the body's natural processes.
3. Is tattoo removal permanent?
While tattoo removal can significantly fade or completely remove a tattoo, complete removal may not always be possible. The success of removal depends on factors such as the tattoo's size, ink colors, and your skin type.
4. How many sessions are needed for tattoo removal?
The number of sessions required varies depending on factors like tattoo size, ink type, and your body's response to treatment. Clear Skin Laser Treatments have an average of 6 treatments to clear the tattoo, this is depending on density and saturation of the ink.
5. Are there any side effects of tattoo removal?
Common side effects include temporary redness, swelling, blistering, and scabbing in the treated area. These effects are usually temporary and subside as the skin heals.
6. How long does each tattoo removal session take?
The duration of a session depends on the size and complexity of the tattoo. Smaller tattoos may take only a few seconds, while larger and more intricate designs can take longer.

8. How long should I wait between tattoo removal sessions?

10. Can anyone get a tattoo removed?
In general, tattoo removal is suitable for most individuals. However, it's essential to consult with a qualified practitioner to assess your specific tattoo and skin type to determine if you are a good candidate for removal.
