How does laser tattoo removal work?
Laser tattoo removal uses intense pulses of energy to target the pigment found in tattoo ink. During your treatment, your technician calibrates the laser’s wavelength to penetrate a specific color of ink, while bypassing the skin or nearby tissue. The pigment from the ink absorbs the laser and its energy. This energy fractures the ink particles, blasting them it into smaller pieces. Simultaneously, the laser stimulates the immune system to attack the fractured pieces of ink that are now small enough to be absorbed and processed out of the body, effectively clearing the ink from the skin. ¹
Each laser session leads to improved clearance of the tattoo.² Typically, patients see full clearance of their unwanted ink in as little as 4 to 8 treatments.
Tattoo Removal with CynoSure’s PicoSure Laser System
Wyndhurst Medical Aesthetics utilizes the most advanced tattoo removal laser system on the market: The PicoSure by Cynosure. The PicoSure is the world’s first picosecond laser and the only laser system to use advanced PressureWaveTM Technology. There is no question; the PicoSure laser system is the golden standard in tattoo removal.
The PicoSure Difference
Traditional tattoo removal laser systems, like Q-switched lasers, pulse energy in nanoseconds (one billionth of a second.) Nanosecond lasers rely on heat to fracture tattoo pigment. In contrast, PicoSure relies on speed. Utilizing its PressureWaveTM technology, PicoSure lasers releases the same amount of energy as the Q-switched laser, but in picoseconds (one trillionth of a second.) These ultra-short bursts of specialized energy do more than just heat the targeted ink pigment. The Picosecond pulse is so fast it creates a change in pressure, triggering a photomechanical response in the ink’s pigment that pulverizes ink into dust like particles. This clears the tattoo more quickly and effectively than Q-Switched lasers. In addition, a shorter burst of energy is safer on surrounding skin, decreasing pain, downtime, and the risk of skin irritation or scarring.
PicoSure Laser Tattoo Removal Reviews in Scientific Literature
A clinical study, published in the Archives of Dermatology compared “Responses of Tattoos to Picosecond and Nanosecond Q-Switched…Lasers.” The researchers found, “significant lightening in the picosecond-treated areas compared with those treated with nanosecond pulses.” They concluded, “Picosecond pulses are more efficient than nanosecond pulses in clearing tattoos.” ³

How many Laser Tattoo Removal Treatments are needed?
The number of laser tattoo removal treatments you will need depends on several factors, such as the location of your tattoo, the size of your tattoo, and the color and type of ink that was used in your tattoo. For example, darker inks tend to absorb light more effectively than lighter inks. Therefore, it usually requires less laser treatments to clear black or blue inks, and more treatments to clear orange, red, or green inks.
During your complimentary consultation from Wyndhurst Medical Aesthetics, your personal laser technician will discuss the characteristics of your tattoo and estimate the number of treatments that may be required to clear that tattoo to your satisfaction.
How long must I wait between laser treatments?*
Your treatment schedule will space each session several weeks apart, typically 4 to 8 weeks, to ensure your body has enough time to process the ink particles before your next treatment. However, individual experiences may vary.* If laser tattoo removal is right for you, your technician will customize your treatment plan to best suit your schedule.
Does Laser Tattoo Removal Hurt?
In the early days of cosmetic lasers, laser tattoo removal could be painful. However, advancements in laser technology have significantly improved patient experience.
While PicoSure relies more on speed, and less on heat (compared to traditional tattoo removal systems,) there is still some discomfort associated with this procedure. Your personal laser technician will do everything possible to ensure your comfort, including numbing cream, cooling devices and other aids to minimize discomfort. Individual experiences may vary, but most patients report their treatment was far less painful than they were expecting and quite tolerable.*
How much does laser tattoo removal cost?
Laser tattoo removal cost varies per patient. Factors affecting the cost of laser tattoo removal include the size of the tattoo and the number of treatments required to reach the desired level of clearance. During your complimentary consultation with Wyndhurst Medical Aesthetics, your technician will discuss laser tattoo removal prices in detail and will customize a treatment plan that meets your needs and matches your budget.
