Tattoos are an extremely popular form of body art, so it should not be too much of a surprise that a large percentage of the world’s population have tattoos. Unfortunately, some individuals later regret getting their tattoos for a number of reasons. Most of these individuals live with their regretted tattoos because they are misinformed and believe that their ink is permanent. Luckily, there is now a safe solution available for tattoo removal. Using the latest in medical-grade laser technology, a professional can fade or remove tattoos completely.
At Dr Saras & Co in Sydney, we specialise in laser tattoo removal, providing a safe and affordable procedure that effectively minimises unwanted tattoos.
Different from previous methods that involved cryosurgery (freezing the skin and peeling off layers), excision (cutting the tattoo out) and painful dermabrasion (scraping off the top layer of skin), the process is entirely non-invasive. In fact, PicoSure laser has been described as one of the best modern tattoo removal methods for avoiding pain, downtime and side effects; not to mention, effective results.
Our medical-grade laser machine works by generating brief pulses of intense light. These pulses pass through the skin and straight to the pigment, without harming the top layer of skin. When the light is absorbed the ink molecules breakdown, turning them into tiny particles that absorb into the bloodstream. The body then naturally flushes these particles out of your system, and the ink gradually disappears.
PicoSure laser tattoo removal is the most effective and safest picosecond aesthetic laser. This unbeatable advancement in laser technology offers ultra-short pulse blasts of energy in trillionths of a second, allowing for an unbeatable photomechanical force for better clearance and fewer treatments.
With laser tattoo removal, side effects are possible, although they are usually minor and temporarily. The most common side effects are mild blistering, redness and swelling. But, this should not worry patients; this will resolve itself within one week of treatment.
The PicoSure laser tattoo removal can cause some discomfort to the patient. It is described as a similar feeling to having the tattoo done and you can expect a stinging sensation. However, a local anaesthetic cream is applied to the skin to numb the area and provide relief to the patient. In addition, the skin receives blasts of cool air to help. The process of using laser technology means that the treatment is fast and effective. Our team at Dr Saras & Co will make sure you are as comfortable as possible throughout the procedure.
The number of treatments vary from patient to patient and treatments are determined by your skin tone, the length of time you have had your tattoo and the location and size of the tattoo. During your consultation, at Dr Saras and Co we will examine your tattoo and recommend a treatment plan to help you achieve the best results. You will be able to ask any questions that you may have and all risks and stages of the procedure will be thoroughly discussed before going ahead with Picosure laser tattoo removal.
