Picosecond laser tattoo removal Sydney #1 best treatment
Picosecond laser tattoo removal Sydney #1 best treatment. I was at Xara Skin Clinic your tattoo removal clinic today and amongst other things had a chat about laser tattoo removal. They were telling me that in the last twelve months, they had purchased at least ten new machines. So many they had lost count of the new machines. One of the newer machines is a pico laser. Amongst other treatments such as fractional laser skin rejuvenation, laser carbon facial and much more. But I digress, let's get back to tattoo removal. The gold standard of laser technology.
Why is pico important?
That is simple to answer, most YAG lasers are nanosecond lasers. Yes, they do the job but not as well as a pico laser treatment. Why is the speed of the laser pulse important? Faster speed means more power can be used, the more power the better effect. But because the pulse is ultra short there is less damage to the surrounding skin, and side effects and that is a good thing.
The difference between nano and pico-second lasers
What does that mean?
Because there is less damage you need fewer treatments and faster recovery. That means they save you time and money. Now if that doesn't sound good I don't know what will.
Getting an image of tattoo removal can be a little hard. If you get an image of before and after, the after will have no tattoo. Which is why we have images of before and after the first treatment.
How does tattoo removal work?
The science behind the tattoo removal process is as follows. The powerful laser beam is aimed at the tattoo, and the energy hits the tattoo ink and breaks it into small pieces (ink particles). The body then gets rid of the small pieces of ink via the metabolic process or a period of a few weeks. If you have a look at the header image you will see a before and after one treatment.

If you have a look at the tattoo at the top you will see the colours are even. Where the one above has been done by an amateur, the depth and colour are not consistent. That can mean the tattoo is harder to remove. How many sessions that is takes to remove a tattoo depends on the following.
- type of ink
- colour of the ink
- how the tattoo was applied
- how deep the ink is
How many treatments does it take
I guess this is what you want to know. I asked Xara Skin Clinic your laser tattoo removal specialists, they said until they start it's a best guess. I can see where they are coming from, they don't know how the tattoo was first applied.
