Laser Tattoo Removal With PicoSure on the Face

This client has chosen to have one of their face tattoos faded in order to make room for something different. This is their first treatment and we are using a PicoSure laser.  Most clients will require 2-5 treatments to achieve enough fading for a cover up tattoo to be done.

The white “frosting” that appears immediately after the the laser is water vapor, a byproduct of the laser tattoo removal treatment.  Within 10 minutes, this fades and is not a burn or blister.

In the left hand of this video is a hose, it’s a cryo-chiller, a device that blows extremely cold air onto the skin before and during a treatment to help reduce any short-term swelling, a common side effect.  It is not a vacuum.

What you see here was filmed in real time, showing just how fast tattoo removal treatments are.
