PicoSure in Staten Island, NY

What is PicoSure™?

Going, going, gone. PicoSure™ is an unprecedented, laser tattoo removal procedure which requires fewer treatments, less pain and a faster recovery time. Known for targeting unwanted ink more effectively than any other treatment, PicoSure™ removes tattoos faster than ever before.

However, 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.

Is PicoSure™ Right for Me?

It’s a cautionary tale. 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. Well, you’re not alone. Studies show 1 in 5 people regret their tattoo. But the days of living with regret are now gone.

If you’re looking for impressive results, eliminating typical downtime or discomfort, you may be an ideal candidate for PicoSure™.

Benefits of the procedure, which has been compared to taking a sledgehammer to a rock include:

  • Less pain than traditional standards
  • Reduced amount of treatments
  • Faster recovery time
  • More effective removing darker colors (greens, blues & purples)

Procedure Details

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 that can be absorbed by the body. It also causes less trauma to the surrounding skin.

With PicoSure™, even dark blue and green inks, which can be particularly difficult, can be removed, as well as previously-treated, recalcitrant tattoos.

Recovery after PicoSure™

PicoSure™ also promotes a speedy recovery. This is largely because it only takes three to six sessions to remove a tattoo, compared to other methods which can require up to 20 treatments!
