Have you thought about removing your old tattoos? Tattoos have traditionally been treated using Q-switched nanosecond lasers. Tattoo pigment particles are heated by Q-switched lasers in billionths of a second. Pico lasers, a new and innovative way for safer tattoo removal, are quicker because they produce high energy in trillionths of a second.
Pico lasers are more effective than Q-switched lasers for tattoo removal. They are particularly successful for fading tattoos and are non-selective in pigment targeting. Green and blue inks perform best with Q-switched lasers, whereas red and black inks work best with Nd:YAG lasers.
What Is the Pico Laser Tattoo Removal Process?
Pico laser works through a groundbreaking quick blast of energy that lasts just a trillionth of a second treating the tattoo color pigment while leaving surrounding tissue unharmed. Unlike past generations of tattoo removal processes, which utilized more power and caused heat, the Pico laser utilizes just a tenth of the energy pulse using PressureWave technology.
The rapid shift in pressure disintegrates the ink into small particles that the lymphatic system can naturally remove. As the number of people who have tattoos has grown, so has the need for better tattoo removal treatments. Tattoo removal procedures have progressed from potentially dangerous therapies with painful and often permanent side effects to less damaging treatments with satisfactory outcomes. People have used tattoo removal procedures like surgical excision, acid treatments, and dermabrasion before the debut of Pico laser tattoo removal.
What We Like Most About Pico Laser
Pico laser has four times the speed of prior versions. While individual outcomes vary, it may minimize the number of sessions from 15-20 to 4 or 5 sessions. Wave technology reduces heat damage and hence scarring, and it actually enhances skin texture by activating the body’s immune system.
What Should I Anticipate From A Pico Laser Treatment?
Pico laser tattoo removal is accomplished over a period of four-week treatment sessions. The duration of every tattoo removal session is determined by the color and size of the tattoo. Small tattoos may usually be treated in a couple of minutes. Larger tattoos may take a little longer.
Pico laser skin rejuvenation requires no additional preparation and generally takes 10 to 15 minutes. Most patients report minimal discomfort and characterize the procedures as feeling like a rubber band snapping on their skin. Aesthetic doctors in Singapore shall administer a topical numbing lotion to your skin before the procedure to make you as comfy as possible.
You may suffer 1-3 hours of slight swelling and redness after your treatment. Because modern laser systems do not harm the skin’s surface, you may apply moisturizers, makeup, and sunscreen immediately after your treatment.
Potential adverse effects
Hypopigmentation, hyperpigmentation, swelling, redness, and itching are the most prevalent adverse effects.
How Many Pico Laser Tattoo Removal Sessions Will I Require?
The number of sessions required is determined by the body’s location, the quantity of ink, the client’s skin type, the amount of color, and other criteria. After we have completed a thorough examination of your skin, we will offer a professional opinion during your free consultation.
There are several tattoo removal technologies available on the market, however, not all lasers are made equal. For many years, nanosecond lasers have been utilized to deliver light pulses in nanoseconds. In contrast, picoseconds are trillionths of a second. According to studies, a picosecond laser dissolves tattoos quicker and more thoroughly than current nanosecond laser technology, leading up to 30% more ink clearing. The number of treatments required by a patient is determined by their tattoo color, tattoo size, skin type, and other important considerations. To properly erase bigger tattoos, several treatments may be required. In general, treatments are scheduled 4 to 6 weeks apart.
