Picosure Tattoo Removal versus Tattoo Removal Creams


Warning! Before You Try Tattoo Removal Creams:


Chemicals should always be used with caution since they can contain any number of dangerous ingredients. There is a chemical or drug for almost every disorder, and not surprisingly, chemicals are also a method used for tattoo removal.



TCA is one of the oldest creams used for tattoo removal. The full chemical name for TCA is Trichloroacetic acid. Using creams containing TCA is considered a “do-it-yourself” method because you can buy these creams off-the-shelf, and apply them yourself. However, there are many dangers that come with using TCA.

Patients have reported a burning sensation with TCA that does not subside without further medical attention. Also, the use of TCA requires multiple applications (typically over a series of months) to achieve any degree of peeling. This is a major disadvantage since the total concentration of chemical used will be high, increasing the risk of dangerous chemical exposure. Other types of tattoo removal creams carry many of the same risks as TCA.

The FDA, PubMed, and the Mayo Clinic have all make statements regarding tattoo removal creams and have concluded that there is no evidence of tattoo removal creams being an effective method of tattoo removal. Research has shown that tattoo removal creams are unable to penetrate down to the dermis layer of skin to actually get to the ink that needs to be removed.





We offer the PicoSure™ picosecond laser technology as our preferred method for tattoo removal. Picosure laser tattoo removal technology is the world’s first safe and effective picosecond aesthetic laser. It has so many benefits and advantages over the use of chemicals.

1. Some tattoos can be very challenging to remove. Professionally done tattoos are usually applied deeply into the skin, and darker tattoos such as blue and black ink tattoos are very challenging to remove. Picosecond lasers use PressureWave technology to shatter tattoo ink. Pressure waves from picosecond lasers are extremely effective in shattering ink particles and hence can solve the challenging problem of removing difficult tattoos.

2. Picosure laser technology is more efficient in clearing multicolored tattoos, especially blue and green pigments, than other methods.

3. Picosure pulses are short and extremely fast (trillionths of a second).

4. Picosure technology allows a faster recovery time because there is less damage to the tissue surrounding the tattoo area, which greatly reduces any risk of scarring.

For your tattoo removal, our Picosecond laser will eliminate your tattoo in 6 sessions or less, guaranteed. About 70% of our clients get remarkable results with only 3-4 sessions. We encourage you to take advantage of all the benefits of picosecond laser technology today.
