Despite the popularity of tattoos in modern day, the prevalence of tattoos is sure to lead to the occasional poor choice. Essential Aesthetics and Laser in Charlotte, North Carolina, serves the growing demand for tattoo removal with an innovative laser treatment option. If you’re looking for tattoo removal, call the clinic today for a consultation.
The most effective contemporary treatment for tattoo removal uses laser light to break up pigments within the dermal layers of the skin, where tattoo ink resides. Traditionally, 3 types of lasers — alexandrite, ruby, and YAG — were the go-to laser platforms for tattoo removal. However, each of these lasers favors certain ink colors and compounds, meaning that not all removal systems are equally effective on every tattoo type. Essential Aesthetics and Laser uses the CynoSure PicoSure® laser, which works across a wider range of tattoo inks than other laser removal systems.
The PicoSure is the world’s first picosecond laser with a high-energy, short-duration burst of controlled light. Most lasers work by heating the target area. The PicoSure’s duration is so short — just trillionths of a second — that heat doesn’t have a chance to build up. Instead, particles of tattoo pigment become excited by the laser light, vibrate, and then shatter into smaller particles. Surrounding tissue is far less affected by this short-burst laser, so there is less accompanying skin damage and recovery time. The PicoSure effectively converts light energy into pressure that begins a process called cell signaling to start the natural removal of the tattoo ink. The pressure from the PicoSure treatment not only breaks up the ink pigment but also jump starts the lymphatic system to flush the pigment from the body. In effect, your body gets rid of the tattoo, not the laser, though PicoSure starts the process.
Much depends on the particular tattoo, so individual results vary. The PicoSure system is less dependent on matching laser to pigment than other laser systems, so a wider range of colors are effectively removed, and patients may find that they need fewer treatments with the PicoSure than with other systems.
