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, using the latest in medical-grade laser technology that allows tattoos to be faded and removed.
At Dr Saras & Co in Sydney, we specialise in laser tattoo removal, providing a safe and affordable procedure that effectively minimises unwanted tattoos.
How does Tattoo Removal Work?
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.
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.
Benefits of PicoSure Tattoo Removal Include:
Fast, affordable and effective
Thorough ink particle destruction
Quick removal of most tattoo inks
What are the Side Effects?
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.
How Many Treatments will I Need to Have?
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.
