Laser Tattoo Removal Q & A

How does laser tattoo removal work?

At the office of Winnie King, MD Aesthetics and Wellness, you can get rid of an unwanted tattoo with safe, easy, effective treatments. Dr. King uses the PicoSure® laser tattoo removal system, an FDA-approved laser technology that delivers short bursts of energy in a trillionth of a second, or a picosecond. This proprietary PressureWave™ technology converts thermal energy into pressure that targets ink particles.

As a result, the ink in your tattoo breaks apart into tiny dust-like particles that your lymphatic system naturally absorbs and eliminates. The PicoSure laser doesn’t harm the surrounding skin during treatment, either, making this a safe, effective way to rid yourself of unwanted ink.

How many laser treatments will I need to remove my tattoo?

The size, density, and location of your tattoo determine the number of treatments you need to get the desired results. Dr. King customizes a treatment plan for you considering all these factors. Typically, PicoSure laser tattoo removal removes unwanted ink in 4-10 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart.

Once the ink is gone, it’s gone for good, as results are permanent.

What other treatments can I get with the PicoSure laser?

Since PicoSure laser technology is so effective at tattoo removal, it only makes sense that it’s effective for other areas of uneven pigmentation as well, including melasma and acne scars. PicoSure technology is also helpful in treating:

  • Freckles
  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation

Laser Facials

Additionally, you can come to Winnie King, MD Aesthetics and Wellness for laser facials with the PicoSure laser system. During a skin revitalization treatment, the laser penetrates below the surface of your skin to stimulate new collagen and elastin production. Collagen and elastin are the building blocks and support structure of smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin.

As your skin rejuvenates itself from the inside out, with new collagen and elastin cells, you notice smoother skin, a diminished appearance of lines and wrinkles, and more even skin tone. PicoSure laser facials don’t come with downtime or pain, so you can get back to your daily activities without interruption.
