Removing Tattoos With Incredible Precision

Tattoo Removal — Plastic Surgery in Reno, NV
Tattoos can become unwanted for a variety of reasons. Fortunately, tattoo removal makes it easy to restore clear, flawless skin. During laser tattoo removal, the ultrashort pulses from the PicoSure® laser will break down the tattoo's ink into tiny particles, which are then absorbed by the body and naturally eliminated. To help deliver comprehensive results, the PicoSure® system can be calibrated to specific wavelengths that target unique tattoo colors with unsurpassed precision.
Although tattoo removal will likely require multiple sessions, PicoSure® patients routinely require fewer visits to achieve clearer skin. Patients are often impressed by how simple the therapy is, since they may have heard that laser tattoo removal can be very uncomfortable. In fact, many patients compare the sensation during PicoSure® laser therapy to the snap of a rubber band on the skin.

Most laser systems rely on intense heat energy to remove tattoos or natural discoloration from the skin. This process can be very painful, require several treatment sessions, and involve significant recovery time. Fortunately, the PicoSure® laser system, developed by CynoSure® and featuring the patented PressureWave™ technology, involves minimal discomfort. The technology uses ultrashort pulses of energy that last just trillionths of a second – or about one hundredth of the time that energy is released using the more common nanosecond technology. These quick pulses of energy trigger a photomechanical effect that smashes apart the discoloration effectively, comfortably, and without disruption to the surrounding skin.
