Laser Tattoo Removal Before and After

Frequently Asked Questions

How does PicoSure laser tattoo removal work?

PicoSure laser tattoo removal works by utilizing advanced laser technology to target and break down tattoo ink particles in the skin. Here’s how the process typically works:

1. PicoSure laser emits ultra-short pulses: The PicoSure laser emits ultra-short pulses of energy, measured in picoseconds (trillionths of a second). These pulses are delivered to the tattooed area with precision.

2. Rapid energy delivery shatters ink particles: The rapid and intense energy delivery of the PicoSure laser causes the tattoo ink particles to shatter into tiny fragments. This process is known as photomechanical or photodisruption.

3. Your body’s natural processes eliminate ink fragments: Once the ink particles are shattered, the body’s immune system recognizes them as foreign substances and begins the process of elimination. The lymphatic system gradually flushes out the fragmented ink particles from the body over time.

4. Multiple sessions for complete removal: Tattoo removal with PicoSure usually requires multiple treatment sessions spaced several weeks apart. The number of sessions needed depends on factors such as the size, colour, and depth of the tattoo, as well as individual factors.

5. Gradual fading and improvement: Over the course of the treatment sessions, the tattoo gradually fades as the body eliminates the fragmented ink particles. With each session, the tattoo becomes lighter and less noticeable, eventually leading to significant fading or complete removal.

What can I expect from laser tattoo removal before and after the treatment?

Before the treatment, your experienced laser technician will evaluate your tattoo and discuss the expected outcomes, including the number of sessions required for complete removal or significant fading.

After the treatment, you may experience temporary redness, swelling, or blistering in the treated area which subsides. Over time, as your body eliminates the tattoo ink, you will notice gradual lightening or complete removal of the tattoo.

Is laser tattoo removal good for all skin types?

Yes, Picosure laser tattoo removal is suitable for various skin types, including fair, medium, and dark skin tones. The advanced technology of Picosure allows for effective and safe tattoo removal on a wide range of skin types.

How much does laser tattoo removal cost?

Laser tattoo removal treatments begin at $150. The cost varies depending on factors such as the size, colour, and complexity of the tattoo, as well as the number of sessions required. During your complimentary consultation, we will assess your tattoo and provide you with a personalized treatment plan, including a cost estimate. 

No booking or purchase is ever necessary after a consultation. As with all our consultations, we encourage you to get all the information you need regardless of whether or not you are decided. Our skin and laser technicians want to empower you with education about your unique skin and tattoo pigmentations so that you can make an informed decision when the time is right for you.

What does laser tattoo removal feel like?

Most of our guests find the procedure tolerable and do not require numbing cream or anesthesia. The PicoSure laser delivers energy in ultra-short bursts, with clients often comparing the laser pulse to a snap of a thin rubber band or a momentary touch of a spark from a celebration sparkler.

What is the post-treatment care needed for laser tattoo removal?

1. Protect the treated area: Keep the treated area clean and protected from sun exposure. Avoid direct sunlight, and if you need to go outside, apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF to the treated area.

2. Avoid picking or scratching: Resist the urge to pick at any scabs or blisters that may form. Let them heal naturally.

3. Keep the area clean: Gently clean the treated area with mild soap and water. Avoid harsh scrubbing or using abrasive cleansers that may irritate the skin.

4. Follow post-treatment instructions: Carefully follow any specific or personalized instructions provided by your laser technician regarding aftercare for your unique skin. They may recommend additional steps or precautions based on your individual situation.

5. Attend follow-up appointments: Stick to your scheduled follow-up treatments with your laser technician. These visits allow them to assess your progress, make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan, and address any concerns or questions you may have.

How long does each laser tattoo removal treatment take?

 Each treatment can be completed in as little as 15 minutes or less, depending on the size of the targeted area.

How many laser tattoo removal treatments will I need?

The number of treatments required varies, but typically patients need approximately 6 sessions, depending on the size of the targeted area.

What can I expect when I come in for my laser tattoo removal treatment?

When you come in for a PicoSure laser tattoo removal service at Total Wrapture, here’s what you can expect from beginning to end:

1. Consultation: Your appointment will begin with a consultation with an expert laser technician. They will assess your tattoo, discuss your goals, and provide you with information about the treatment process, including the number of sessions needed, prices, and potential outcomes.

2. Preparation: Before the actual treatment, your laser technician will prepare the treatment area by cleansing your skin.

3. Treatment session: During the treatment, you will be positioned comfortably, and the PicoSure laser will be used to target the tattooed area. The laser emits short bursts of energy, which will be delivered to the skin using a handheld device. You may feel sensations such as a snapping or tingling sensation on your skin, but discomfort is typically minimal and treatments only last for a few minutes.

4. Protective measures: To ensure safety, both you and your laser technician will wear protective eyewear throughout the procedure. 

5. Post-treatment care: After the treatment, your laser technician will provide you with instructions on how to care for the treated area. 

6. Multiple sessions: Complete tattoo removal typically requires multiple treatment sessions, spaced several weeks apart. The exact number of sessions will depend on various factors, including the size, colour, and depth of the tattoo, as well as individual response to the treatment.

7. Gradual fading and results: Over time, you will begin to notice a gradual fading of the tattoo as the body naturally eliminates the fragmented ink particles. Results vary depending on various factors, and it is important to have realistic expectations about the level of fading that can be achieved.

8. Follow-up appointments: Your laser technician may schedule follow-up appointments to monitor your progress, assess the healing process, and determine if any additional treatments are necessary to achieve your desired results.

What sets PicoSure apart from other laser tattoo removal treatments?

PicoSure stands out from other tattoo removal treatments because it uses a groundbreaking approach. Instead of solely relying on heat to burn away the unwanted ink or melanin deposit, PicoSure shatters the pigment into particles for the body to naturally reabsorb.

This unique method avoids burning surrounding tissue, resulting in a more comfortable procedure. It is considered one of the most exciting discoveries in recent medical history.

Can silver tattoos also be effectively removed with laser tattoo removal?

Picosure laser tattoo removal is particularly effective for the removal of various tattoo ink colors, including silver. The advanced technology of Picosure targets a wide range of ink pigments, resulting in successful removal or significant fading of silver tattoos.

Are there any factors that may disqualify me from receiving laser tattoo removal?

While laser tattoo removal is generally considered safe and effective, certain conditions or circumstances may affect your eligibility for the procedure. Here are some factors that could potentially prevent you from qualifying for laser tattoo removal:

1. Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions or underlying health issues may impact your eligibility for laser tattoo removal. For example, if you have a history of keloid scarring, poor wound healing, or immune system disorders, it may affect the healing process after the treatment.

2. Medications and topical products: Certain medications or topical products that you are using may interfere with the laser tattoo removal process or increase the risk of complications. It’s important to inform your practitioner about any medications, including topical creams or ointments, that you are currently using.

3. Pregnancy and breastfeeding: We do not perform laser tattoo removal for pregnant or breastfeeding individuals. 

4. Recent sun exposure or tanning: Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds prior to the treatment.

5. Open wounds or infections: If you have an active infection or open wounds in the treatment area, it may be necessary to delay the laser tattoo removal until the area has fully healed.
