Benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal With PicoSure
- More effective than older laser treatments, meaning fewer appointments to remove tattooed pigments.
- The laser encourages collagen and elastin to grow, which can result in smoother skin after healing.
- The laser stimulates your lymphatic system to flush away ink molecules.
- Older treatments had trouble with bright ink colors. PicoSure successfully breaks up fluorescent ink and black pigments.
- The laser is lightning fast, so ink removal appointments can be over in about 10 minutes.
- Less skin is affected by the laser, as it is precisely targeted. Patients say the removal process hurts less than getting the tattoo.

Is Laser Removal Pain Intense?
Not at all. The tattoo removal procedure is made virtually pain-free thanks to our Zimmer chiller tool, which blasts chilled air onto the tattoo during treatment. A cooling, numbing gel can also be applied to the area for your comfort. Some patients say the laser feels like the quick snap of a rubber band.

Worried About Tattoo Removal Costs?
We Accept Financing
Tattoo removal is considered a cosmetic procedure, so most insurance companies won't cover it. Should out-of-pocket fees for tattoo removal concern you, we offer in-office payment plans and work with various trusted financing companies such as CareCredit®. We want to make the cosmetic services you need as affordable as possible.
Can I Get a Tattoo in the Same Spot Again?
Yes, it's okay to get a new tattoo in the same spot after laser tattoo removal. However, you should wait at least six weeks after your final laser session to ensure your skin has fully healed. Many of our tattoo removal patients go on to get new ink that they feel is a better reflection of who they are. If you're interested in the same, we can use laser tattoo removal to safely create a blank slate.
