While tattoos were once considered permanent, it is now possible to remove them with treatments, fully or partially. Formerly, only black and other darker-colored inks can be removed completely. But now PicoSure’s 755/532 wavelength combination is able to clear all tattoo ink colors.
PicoSure delivers ultra-short bursts of energy in trillionths of a second, resulting in a photomechanical impact known as PressureWave™.
While portions of high and low intensity energy treat pigment, high intensity energy creates a Laser Induced Optical Breakdown (or LIOB). The formation of LIOBs creates a PressureWave™, and initiates an epidermal repair mechanism involving cell signaling and inflammation, resulting in dermal remodeling response.
Elara shows how this technology works. So you can see how the bad idea when you were 21 doesn’t need to show forever. But no one can erase the memories.
