In today’s culture, tattoos are commonplace. However statistics show that 1 out of 5 individuals, regret their decision to get a tattoo and wish for an easy, painless method for tattoo removal.

Previous methods for tattoo removal have included creams, chemical peels, dermabrasion, salabrasion, tattoo camouflaging, and even the drastic step of plastic surgery. But, for residents of Austin, tattoo removal has gotten more cost effective, easier, and even more successful.

Hall Plastic Surgery Center, one of the leading Austin plastic surgeons, has recently become the leader for tattoo removal in Austin with the new, cutting-edge laser procedure known as PicoSureTM, developed by Cynosure.

What is PicoSure?

While PicoSure is a laser treatment, it goes well beyond the capabilities of previous laser treatments. The laser technology behind PicoSure enables medical practitioners to deliver ultra-short pulses of laser energy to the skin, in increments of trillionths of a second, also called a picosecond.

The PicoSure technology ultra-short energy pulses fragment the targeted colors within the tattoo ink, causing the colors to split into micro-sized ink particles. The body’s natural process of cell renewal through a process called phagocytosis happens with greater ease, speeding up the process and effectiveness of the laser treatment on tattoo removal.

Effectiveness of PicoSure Tattoo Removal

Clinical research on the effectiveness of PicoSure on tattoos with an average age of a decade revealed over eighty percent overall clearance. In fact, tattoos that were primarily blue or green in color, resulted in a ninety-four percent clearance in just one or two treatments with PicoSure.
