One day you love “John” so much that you ink his name across your wrist. The next day he’s broken your heart and you’re left with an unwelcome reminder every time you lift your hand.
Now there is a more efficient way to “erase” that mistake, thanks to PicoSure™, the world’s first and only picosecond aesthetic laser. Even better, Dr. John W. Decorato is the one of the only board-certified plastic surgeon offering this breakthrough technology on Staten Island, and one of only a handful of doctors offering the technology in the tri-state area..
PicoSure™ is more than just a way to deal with tattoos. This Cynosure® product can also treat surgical and acne scars, remove pigmented lesions and revitalize skin.
The key to PicoSure™ is its ultra-short pulse bursts of energy which are delivered to your skin in trillionths of a second. Unlike nanosecond lasers, which typically rely on photothermal energy to reach the pigment and surrounding tissue, the patented PressureWave™ technology of PicoSure™ uses a pulse width that is 100 times shorter. This means it can more precisely target the problem area, breaking apart pigment into smaller pieces which can be absorbed by the body. It also causes less trauma to the surrounding skin.
Due to the advantages of PicoSure™, it takes only three to six sessions to remove a tattoo. Compare that to other methods which require up to 20 treatments! With PicoSure™, even dark blue and green inks, which can be particularly difficult, can be removed, as well as previously-treated, recalcitrant tattoos.
If you are interested in learning more about PicoSure™, contact Dr. Decorato’s office today. Our plastic surgery team strives to be at the forefront of breakthrough technology. In fact, Dr. Decorato is still only one of a handful of plastic surgeons on Staten Island to offer CoolSculpting® .
We are pleased to provide PicoSure™ to patients from throughout the Staten Island region. We would be happy to release you from your tattoo regret, or any other pigmentation or scarring issues you may have.
