Clearly a better way to remove tattoos
For many centuries, tattooing has been a cultural tradition, commonly to show affiliations and rank, survival accounts or simply to identify an individual. More recently, tattoos have become even more popular as a way to show individuality, artistic expression, or independence.
Research has shown that one in five US adults (21%) have a tattoo, including over half (60%) of all women over the age of 18.
While the number of individuals adding tattoos has increased, so too has the need for improved tattoo removal methods. As circumstances change, perhaps work or relationship related, the desire to remove an earlier tattoo arises. Today this has never been easier. Tattoo removal with the PicoSure Laser is an excellent treatment option. Tattoo removal treatment options have evolved from potentially harmful treatments such as acid removal, excision, and dermabrasion to less damaging aesthetic lasers.
For more than 20 years, Q-Switched lasers were considered the industry standard for tattoo removal and skin spot removal. Now with PicoSure, the ultra-short pulses create a photomechanical impact, shattering the ink or pigment into tiny dust-like particles. Because the particles are so small, they are more easily absorbed and eliminated through the body’s natural processes. This means that with each PicoSure treatment, the tattoo will lighten and clear faster than ever before.
Tattoo Cover Up
Want to replace a tattoo, but are not interested in a much bigger more elaborate costly design? Let DermaTouch, RN prepare you for that tattoo cover up using the same laser tattoo removal process, which allows the tattoo to fade enough for a tattoo artist to easily cover it with a new tattoo design! See below for tattoo removal before and after pictures and witness how the tattoos fade with each treatment.
How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
Laser tattoo removal is the most effective, non invasive method of safe tattoo ink removal. The lasers used at DermaTouch, RN for tattoo removal represent the latest technology and are designed to effectively target the ink that resides just under your skin. Using different wavelengths of light to address the many different colors used in tattoos, the laser breaks down the ink particles into smaller fragments which are then removed through your body’s natural cleansing process. This cleansing process generally takes between four to six weeks to remove the maximum amount of ink pigment.

- FDA approved for tattoo removal in December 2012.
- PicoSure laser technology delivers energy to the tattoo ink in “picoseconds,” which is significantly faster than older technology delivering energy in nanoseconds. Faster energy delivery = quicker clearing of tattoo ink + fewer sessions.
- Less time is needed between PicoSure treatments (3-4 weeks) versus existing lasers requiring 6-8 weeks.
- Easily removes blue, green, orange and yellow inks, which were once considered the toughest colors to remove with existing nanosecond technology.
- Studies reveal greater than 75% overall ink clearance in only one to two treatments.
- Tattoo removal with the PicoSure Laser requires half as many treatments as older laser tattoo removal technology still on the market. Older laser technology includes: Q-Switched Ruby, ND YAG, RevLite, AlexELETE, Astanza, Sinon, Palomar and Spectra.
