Revolutionary Tattoo Removal
Safe and Effective
Tattoos are designed to last forever, but as more people have sought reversal of this deeply embedded ink, laser technology has kept pace with improved methods for safe and effective removal or lightening. Advanced laser technology, in the form of Q-switched and nanosecond lasers, safely penetrate the skin and target each tattoo ink color with specific wavelengths, causing tattoos to gradually fade during a course of 5 to 15 treatment sessions.
At Surgical Dermatology & Laser Center we have two different lasers to treat tattoos:
- The Medlite C6 laser is a Q-switched laser features four wavelengths to target a wide range of colors, from blue, black and red, to orange.
- The PicoSure laser is a nanosecond laser that was a revolutionary discovery in effective laser treatment. Surgical Dermatology & Laser Center is the first Dermatology center in Las Vegas to offer the world’s only picosecond aesthetic laser for tattoo removal. This unprecedented advancement in laser technology safely and effectively erases tattoos with fewer treatments and better results. Even tattoos that have been treated previously but failed to clear can be removed with PicoSure’s patented PressureWave™ technology.
An unparalleled breakthrough in tattoo removal technology, PicoSure’s PressureWave™ gently delivers ultra-short pulses of energy to the tattoo ink in trillionths of a second without injury to the surrounding skin. This shatters the ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body. Based on physician studies, PicoSure has proven efficacy on difficult ink colors, as well as previously-treated tattoos, for better clearance with fewer laser treatments and improved recovery time.1, 2
Recent data estimates that nearly 20 percent of the 45 million Americans with at least one tattoo regret their decision. FDA-cleared PicoSure just made tattoo removal faster and safer.1, 2 Call Surgical Dermatology & Laser Center to learn how PicoSure can help shatter the past and reveal your new future.
