What is tattoo removal?
Tattoo removal at Coral Springs Med Spa uses PicoSure technology to reduce skin pigment associated with tattoos, to get rid of permanent tattoos when you no longer want them. PicoSure converts laser energy into gentle pressure, which squeezes cells and activates their natural signaling response. This causes increases in collagen and elastin production, without damaging your skin.
How does PicoSure technology work?
PicoSure laser treatments use ultra-short pulses to target ink particles, shattering them into tiny dust-like fragments that your body can absorb and eliminate over time. PicoSure technology can even reduce stubborn blue, green, and dark inks or previously treated stubborn tattoos.
Am I a good candidate for tattoo removal?
To find out if PicoSure tattoo removal is right for you, your Coral Springs Med Spa specialist reviews your medical history and examines your tattoo. They discuss the expected outcome with you before treatment. PicoSure procedures are fast and painless and work well with all skin types.
What happens during laser tattoo removal?
Right before the procedure, your Coral Springs Med Spa provider can numb the treatment area if you’d like. Using a handheld device, they apply laser energy to your skin during the painless procedure while you relax in a comfortable chair. The length of time your treatment lasts depends on the size and type of tattoo you have.
What happens after tattoo removal with PicoSure?
While you may notice slight frosting or whitening of the skin immediately after treatment, this soon subsides. After laser treatment with PicoSure, you might experience mild swelling or redness at the treatment area. You may have to keep the area moist for a while. Follow your provider’s post-procedure instructions.
They might recommend a series of PicoSure treatments to help you achieve the best possible results. Every patient responds differently, but it usually takes about 4-8 weeks for your body to absorb ink particles. Your Coral Springs Med Spa provider works with you to achieve results you feel good about.
