Body ink has become a huge trend in the United States. According to a 2014 report at Medical Daily, more than 20 percent of adults in this country have at least one tattoo. The largest percentage of inked individuals (38 percent) were in the 30-39 age range. With a greater number of tattoos also comes an increased incidence of tattoo regret, as those that got their body ink in their younger years begin to realize the repercussions of their tattoos when they head into the professional world and begin to form long-term personal relationships.
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS) has noted that tattoo removal is also on the rise. In 2013, more than 45,000 Americans with body ink opted to have their art removed. Fortunately, innovations in tattoo removal today are making the process of removing body art easier today than ever before.

About the Procedure
Picosure is a relatively comfortable treatment, with most patients describing the procedure as a rubber band snapping against the skin. The majority of patients will require multiple treatment sessions to completely remove body ink. However, the number of sessions may be significantly less than with other types of tattoo removal procedures.
If you are unhappy with your body art, solutions are available. Treatments can be performed on an outpatient basis, and are effective in removing nearly all types and colors of body ink.
