Tattoo Removal Q & A

Can I remove a tattoo I no longer want?

There are all sorts of reasons why people decide they’d like to remove their tattoos. You may feel positive about wanting a permanent tattoo when you have it done, but as life moves on, things change, and your tattoo becomes embarrassing. For instance, having the name of an old flame on your arm becomes awkward when you have someone new in your life.

Tattoo removal has been a problem that’s never had a straightforward solution, but modern technology is now rising to the challenge. If you have a tattoo anywhere on your body you’d like to remove, The Spa at Mount Dora can help, using the state-of-the-art PicoSure aesthetic laser platform.

How does PicoSure remove tattoos?

PicoSure is an innovative form of laser treatment that uses a different approach to removing tattoos than previous generations of tattoo removal technologies. Older methods involve using heat to burn or melt the tattoo ink, but PicoSure uses rapid energy delivery to vibrate the pigments in the tattoo ink, causing them to shatter.

With the ink broken into particles the size of dust, your lymphatic system can absorb them. Absorbing and expelling foreign substances is a key role of the body’s immune system, so when the ink particles enter the lymphatic system, they’re flushed naturally from the body without causing any harm.

Does PicoSure work on all types of tattoos?

PicoSure works on multiple color shades as well as black, even if you have tattoos that haven’t responded to other attempts at removal. Previously, individual lasers were needed for different colors of ink, making the process complicated and long-winded. With PicoSure, your practitioner at The Spa at Mount Dora can treat even greens and blues, the hardest colors to remove.

A PicoSure tattoo removal session typically takes about 10 minutes for an average size tattoo. Tattoo removal is similar to the feeling of having the tattoo put on in the first place, so although you may feel a little discomfort, it won’t be too significant.

Your practitioner can advise you on how many treatment sessions you need, which depends on factors such as:

  • Ink characteristics
  • Size of tattoo
  • Location of tattoo
  • Lifestyle habits

Your practitioner draws up an individualized plan for your treatment, and usually, schedules repeat sessions for every six to eight weeks.
