Pico’s unique photomechanical effect is exceptional at removing even highly pigmented inks deep in the skin, precisely and safely.
The number of treatment sessions that are required to clear your body art depends on several factors, such as the size and age of the tattoo, as well as the quality and color of the inks. Since the short pulses shatter the ink, the pigment is naturally removed by your body’s immune system. Generally, black and gray inks are easiest to treat. Blue, green, and purple can be more challenging for Pico Laser Treatments. Additionally, colorful inks are harder to remove on darker skin (due to the risk of hypopigmentation). We also use the PFD patch to protect the skin. So, we can do multiple passes and shatter more ink in a single session.
Treatments generally take around 15 to 20 minutes. For Pico Laser Treatments Bend patients seeking optimal treatment outcomes, without the risk, we recommend:
- Avoidance of sun exposure and tanning for two to four weeks prior to Pico Laser Treatments
- Skin in the treatment area to be clean; free of makeup, sunscreen, and lotion
- Discontinue use of photosensitizing medications for at least six months prior to treatment
Skin may be pink for one or two days after treatment. When the ink is gone, it’s gone for good. Due to Pico’s unique properties, the risks associated with earlier-generation tattoo removal are minimized; for instance, it is an appropriate option for skin types that are vulnerable to hypopigmentation following treatment with older lasers. Your Bend Pico Laser Treatment technology is so effective at breaking apart inks, that average-sized tattoos may be treated in minutes, more quickly and with fewer treatment sessions than ever before.
