The PicoSure & PicoWay is a breakthrough in tattoo removal.

At Tattoo Removal London we specialise in Tattoo Removals in London.. Using the latest innovation in tattoo removal using the PicoSure & PicoWay Tattoo Removal system, we can remove your tattoo faster then any other clinic in the UK. With the PicoSure & PicoWay machine it can remove a tattoo within 4- 8  treatments, where as the standard tattoo machines take up to about 10-15 treatments, taking over 1- 2 years, depending on sizes of tattoos.

The new PicoSure & PicoWay are the latest breakthroughs in tattoo removal. It can remove a tattoo faster then any other laser machine in the world. The PicoSure & PicoWay pick up all the ink and destroy it into little pieces, these little pieces are easy for the body to absorb allowing the ink to be removed then a standard tattoo removal machine. These lasers also remove difficult inks, such as green and blues much faster then a standard tattoo machine.

The Standard laser tattoo removal relies heavily on a type of photo-dynamic energy (mainly heat) to target the pigment of the tattoo and surrounding skin. While it can successfully remove a tattoo, treatments need to be spaced from six weeks up to two months apart, and it may take anything from 10-20 treatments to fully remove a tattoo.With the PicoSure & PicoWay machine it can remove a tattoo within 4- 8  treatments, where as the standard tattoo machines take up to 10-15 treatments, taking over 1- 2 years, depending on sizes of tattoos.

Laser Tattoo Removal London

The newest lasers ( PicoSure & PicoWay ) tattoo removal technology delivers a different type of energy using an ultra-short laser pulse, that has a more mechanical effect that breaks the ink into microscopic fragments but leaves the surrounding tissue untouched.

The PicoSure Tattoo Removal system is much more of a precision tool than traditional tattoo removal. As compared to conventional tattoo removal, PicoSure requires fewer treatments (in some cases just 3-5), and because it does not reach the surrounding tissue, the spacing between treatments can be shorter.

Laser Tattoo Removal FAQ's

Length of Time ?

This would really depend on each client and their tattoo, for example the ink type, skin type etc. However to give you an idea of the average time it takes to remove a tattoo using the PicoSure & PicoWay, is about 4 -8 treatments. Treatments are done with a 4-8 week waiting gap between appointments.

At your laser tattoo consultation, your technician will be able to give you a better indication of how many treatments you need and answer any other questions you may have about tattoo removal. *Some tattoo’s may require more treatments to fully remove.

Laser Tattoo Removal Post-Treatment Care ?

Just like when you originally had your tattoo, some after-care is needed to protect the treated area and assist good healing. The area must be protected with application of ointment and gauze for the first 24 hours, and protected between treatments from sun exposure to prevent changes in pigmentation.

What Happens during a Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment ?

During PicoSure treatment your tattoo may turn white, the area may swell a little and is likely to turn red for some time afterwards (a few hours). The area sometimes blisters but not in all cases. Following the after-care advise of your practitioner will help to minimise these effects.

Is Laser Tattoo Removal Painful ?

Pain threshold is an individual experience, but some discomfort is to be expected even by those with a high pain threshold. Clients often describe PicoSure/ PicoWay tattoo removal therapy like ‘being pinged with an elastic band’, but this varies from client to client. Your Practitioner will advise on how to minimise any pain or discomfort. Cooling the skin down, post-treatment, by use of gels is frequently suggested.

Are there any side effects with tattoo removal  ?

For the majority of people the side effects from PicoSure & PicoWay Tattoo Removal are short-lived, minimal and to be expected. However, if you have a history of easy scarring, poor wound healing, or suffer an immune problem you should discuss this at your initial consultation. There is a low risk for developing scars without these issues.

Other possible side effects include darkening of the skin due to inflammation, which is a normal temporary side effect. After treatment the area may itch, or feel like a minor sunburn that hurts if chafed, but this is often a short-lived side effect. Lightning of the skin due to the loss of melanin (a substance that gives the skin it’s colour) can also occur, but is more susceptible in those with darker skin tones.

Is Laser Tattoo Removal Suitable for all skin types ?

Currently, PicoSure Tattoo Removal not suitable for Black/Afro Caribbean skin, nor for cosmetic tattoos such as eyeliner and eyebrows. PicoSure is suitable for those with skin types I – IV.
