How PicoSure Laser Tattoo Removal Works

by | Jul 2, 2018 | Beauty and Lifestyle

My third PicoSure tattoo laser removal session was more of a reunion with the staff and Dr. Neil Oropeza. It was also a reunion with the familiar surgical lights, machines, Dr. Neil’s Star Wars Lego collection you can’t miss when you’re heading towards the beauty rooms and the familiar traumatic pain of the laser machine not to mention the injections.

Getting tattoos can be quite painful but I didn’t realize that removing them is thrice the pain. Well, actually saying that it’s thrice the pain is an understatement.

I’ve mentioned in my first session that choosing topical anesthetics over injections is a bad idea. Since I can be a chronic complainer when it comes to handling pain, Dr. Neil thought of using the topical anesthetic not for the laser treatment but for the injection instead.

As you can see, the yellow ink is still visible after having two PicoSure sessions. The yellow ink is just too stubborn, even the red one. That’s why Dr. Neil thought of trying out RevLite for the yellow and red ones.

I got this tattoo on my back five or six years ago. This was my last tattoo and the ink was pretty thick so I’m not surprised that it took two sessions (and maybe two more) for the ink to fade away.

The blue ink is still visible. Aside from yellow and red, blue can also be a difficult color to remove though not as difficult as the two colors mentioned

Why Choose PicoSure Over RevLite

 

RevLite is using heat energy to remove tattoos (like other traditional laser treatments) and we all know that heat can do some damage on the skin. PicoSure breaks down ink pigments making it easier for the tattoos to fade away. It only uses shockwave effect. Since the light pulses are only a trillionth of a second long, it causes less damage and zero skin scars during the laser treatment.

  • Using RevLite laser treatment means more sessions, thus, suffering more. You can achieve better results with the Picosure laser for only a few sessions.

 

  • RevLite may work wonders in any ink color (though it doesn’t work well with black ink). PicoSure works best with black, green and blue while it struggles to remove orange, yellow and red ink colors.

 

I’ve talked to some people who had their tattoos removed and shared our thoughts about tattoo laser removal. I learned about their opinions about RevLite Q-Switched Laser Treatment based on their personal experiences. Here are some things I’ve learned from them:

 

  • Most patients are not satisfied with RevLite Q-Switched Laser Treatment. ( Q-Switched laser treatment is allegedly an ideal method to remove spots, freckles, and tattoos) One patient shared she’s already on her third session but the tattoos are still very visible.

 

  • It takes almost eight to ten RevLite sessions to achieve the results you get when you’re on your first Picosure laser session.

 

  • The age, color and the kind of tattoo ink used are major factors why removing tattoos can take up to five or six sessions.

 

There are a couple reasons why your tattoos and your removal session didn’t work out. It could be the laser machines or how well your skin handles the treatment. Having tattoos used to be a lifetime commitment. Thanks to technology for giving us the best options.

I’m a wannabe blogger who loves the 90s and Dr. Martens, an annoying mother and a jealous fan of A.M. Homes.

This blog is a reflection of my struggles to stay sober, creative and relevant for the past eight years. I deal with my very minor (perhaps imaginary) social anxieties through blogging about beauty products that I bought compulsively and conquering awkward feelings whenever I face the camera to awkwardly share my fashion outfits.

It’s orgasmic to finally let go of my thoughts and live different lives. Adios. May you find solace in other realms of the universe.
