Tattoos are no longer taboo. Tattoos are everywhere (literally) and it feels like everyone and their mother has them. According to some estimates, over 54% of all the women and nearly half of the men who are between the ages of 18-45 have had a tattoo, and those as young as 16 are now getting them with parental approval. Tattoos become a permanent decision of our lives at the time they are inked on us.

But are they really PERMANENT? 

When it comes to permanent decisions, chances are we will all make plenty of those, some of which we grow to regret 10, 20 or 30 years from now… or even the next day! This is especially true when it comes to tattoos, as it’s very easy to have a tattoo made that you think will look cool or trendy and which does too, but the initial phase fades off and all you are left with is a tattoo that makes the Top 100 WORST Tattoos list!

We’re sure if you decided you have a bad tattoo, you would certainly want to have it removed. More importantly, what can you do when you have had enough of a particular body art and want to have your tattoo removed?

You’re Sure You Have Unwanted Ink? Picosure Can Remove It!

This is nothing compared to the statistics of those individuals who heavily regret their tattoos, and aim to have them removed.

When it comes to removal of body ink and art, people have the choice of getting the job done with the help of laser technology, which has fast become one of the most commonly used options and techniques when it comes to safe, effective and fast tattoo removal. One other reason for its immense popularity is that the technology is the least invasive.

This means that there’s more of a chance for a person wanting to remove a tattoo, than having it permanently etched to serve as a reminder of a mistake for the rest of their life. This is why you should carefully think about what tattoo you wouldn’t mind seeing on your body, after say, 20 years’ time, although there’s still always the option of having a tattoo removed or faded, so that a new one can take its place.

Laser treatments have become increasingly popular for many skin treatments, including tattoo removal. In the last two decades however, the number one option for people when it comes to ‘de-inking’ is laser removal, although early laser removal technologies were much the same when it came to pain and scarring.

There’s good news though! Due to the revolution in laser technology, some plastic surgeons have ditched the old and cumbersome-Q switched lasers that were previously used for tattoo removal in favor of PicoSure, a laser-based tattoo removal technology developed by Cynosure.

Unlike traditional and old Q-switched lasers, this particular one delivers ultra-short bursts of energy directly to the skin, in as little as a trillionth of a second! In addition to this, PicoSure Laser Removal Technology can easily break down ink pigment into particles smaller than dust, as compared to the old ones which could only break the ink down to the size of sand and required significantly more treatments over a longer period of time.

Want Fast, Effective Tattoo Removal – Choose PicoSure!

PicoSure by Cynosure is your best bet when it comes to fast removal of an unwanted tattoos. This technology has been known to remove tattoos in less than half the number of sessions that are needed as compared to other lasers; however complete tattoo removal will still take at least several treatments to become truly effective.

Increasingly popular amongst professional tattoo artists, PicoSure by Cynosure also effectively removes black ink and other dark colors far better, which is why more people are no longer anxious when getting a multicolored tattoo. PicoSure is 1000 times faster than the Q-Switched Lasers, and ink is more effectively destroyed. Faster removal, more complete, with less side effects in fewer treatments. PicoSure is the way to go.
