Body ink has become a popular way for individuals to express themselves. However, once you enter your professional life, those tattoos may not be as accepted as they were in your younger years. This may be particularly true for men and women working in the armed forces or with local police and fire departments, where rules are strict and image is important.
If you are ready to get rid of those images for good, the good news is there are effective options in tattoo removal today that don’t require surgery or extended downtime. At Incredible Veins Skin and Body, we offer an innovative tattoo removal option that will effectively eliminate even the most stubborn body ink.
Picosure uses state-of-the-art laser technology to eliminate tattoos of all sizes and colors. The rapid pulse of the laser beam effectively shatters body ink, leaving tiny particles that can easily be removed by the body’s own immune system. The procedure offers more effective tattoo removal in fewer treatment sessions than traditional Q-switched lasers, without causing damage to surrounding skin and tissue.
There are a number of benefits Picosure offers over other laser tattoo removal:
- Short bursts of energy at a higher power level are more effective in removing even stubborn body ink
- Picosure works on even the most stubborn ink colors, including blues and greens
- Tattoos are often eliminated in fewer treatment sessions than other removal procedures
- Lower risk of injury to surrounding skin and tissue
- Most patients experience little discomfort during the procedure and no downtime afterward
- Results with Picosure are often better overall than tattoo removal using other treatment platforms
Tattoo removal is a process that is not usually completed in a single treatment session. The number of treatment sessions you require will depend on the size, colors and quality of your tattoo. Multi-colored images that were professionally applied can take longer to eliminate to your satisfaction.
To allow for full effectiveness of a treatment, Nurse Practitioner Tabitha Carnevale, at Incredible Veins Skin and Body recommends waiting at least six weeks between treatment sessions. As the tattoo grows fainter, some patients may even want to go eight weeks between sessions. Tabitha Carnevale will provide an estimate of how many sessions will be needed to completely eliminate your tattoo and how long it might take at your initial consultation.
Servicemen and women are often restricted in the type of body art they can show. If you find your tattoo is getting in the way of your career advancement, contact Incredible Veins Skin and Body to find out how we can help you say goodbye to your body art for good. Call us today at 818-446-2995.
