Laser Tattoo Removal

Many of us have made choices we often regret later on, and among them is deciding to get a tattoo that we may not have thought about enough. Like many, you may have made some poor decisions in your early years and got a questionable tattoo, or you may have had a great tattoo in mind, but your tattoo artist did not quite give you the results you were looking for. Sure, these are regrettable, but they don’t have to be something you have no choice but to live with. At Allergy & Skin Spa, we use the PicoSure® laser tattoo removal system to remove all types of tattoos effectively. This means that your tattoos no longer have to be permanent, they can be removed so efficiently that it looks like they were never there in the first place. With PicoSure® lasers, you can ensure that your skin is entirely ink-free once again. Since the procedure is permanent and irreversible, you can say goodbye to your unwanted tattoos forever.

How Does PicoSure® Tattoo Removal Work?

When it comes to laser tattoo removal in Los Angeles, there is a common misconception that the tattoo is removed as a result of the laser burning it. However, the truth is that your body itself does the actual ink removal; the laser turns the ink particles into fragments small enough for the body to get rid of them naturally. The procedure for laser tattoo removal does not take long. For an average-sized tattoo, it usually takes approximately ten minutes. If your tattoo is large and has an intricate design, it will take longer than this. Dr. Kia will use the PicoSure® laser to send out light energy to your skin. This light energy is composed of different wavelengths for each ink color. When directed over the tattooed area on your body, the energy enters the skin, where the ink particles absorb them. The laser wavelengths are sent out in short and sharp bursts, which then shatter the ink particles into small, dust-like particles. 

Benefits of PicoSure® Laser Tattoo Removal

PicoSure® is the only laser tattoo removal procedure that uses advanced PressureWave technology. Besides, it is also the first picosecond laser in the world. Dr. Kia, at Allergy & Skin Spa, wants only the best for his patients, which is why he only uses the PicoSure® laser. Not only is it safe but also highly effective, even more so than other traditional lasers, and requires no downtime. By delivering special energy that is meant specifically for targeting the ink underneath your skin, this laser is capable of shattering the ink particles into small fragments, allowing your body to get rid of these tiny ink fragments naturally. This is a simple and brief way of describing just how PicoSure® works. 

What Can I Expect During My Session?

Generally, people need to sit through multiple sessions of laser tattoo removal to be completely free of the ink. However, what makes PicoSure® so great is that you need fewer sessions than other traditional laser removal techniques because it is that much more effective. The number of sessions you receive depends upon your skin type, the location of the tattoo, ink colors, the amount of ink used, and the tattoo layering. On top of these, other personal factors such as your age and the condition of your physical health, whether you have pre-existing scarring, and how strong your immune system is, will weigh in on the number of sessions you need to get rid of your tattoo completely.

Before and After Results

Why Choose PicoSure® for Laser Tattoo Removal?

The PicoSure® laser is more effective than other alternative options because it breaks the ink apart more successfully, meaning that the particles are much smaller. This makes it easier for the body’s immune and lymphatic systems to get rid of them within a few weeks. Since the tattoo ink is no longer present underneath your skin, the tattoo naturally disappears. Another reason this laser is so effective is that it uses PressureWave® technology. This enables Dr. Kia to send just the right amount of light energy into the skin, leading to an efficient breaking down of the ink particles. Many people have the assumption that laser tattoo removal is a painful experience. While this is not completely untrue, the procedure is not unbearable. Many patients report the experience of feeling similar to the process of getting their tattoos. So, if you were able to sit through getting a tattoo you later regretted, there is no reason you cannot sit through the process of removing it.
