Tattoo Regret? You’re not alone!

The Best Laser Tattoo Laser Removal System

Until the launch of PicoSure, Q-Switched lasers had been considered the gold standard for removing tattoos. Q-switched laser treatments use thermal energy to heat up and break apart the ink particles.

Now with PicoSure, ultra-short pulses, and we mean ultra-short: one trillionth of a second in length, hit the ink particle with an energy level so great, the ink shatters into tiny dust-like particles. Because the particles are so small, they are more readily absorbed and eliminated by the body.

This can mean better clearance of the tattoo and fewer treatments overall! Because the energy is delivered with such intensity BUT over such a short time frame, there is essentially no “innocent bystander” damage to surrounding healthy tissue. What this means is fewer treatments and better results as compared with previous approaches to tattoo removal…

Every tattoo is unique and contains different colours and different volumes of ink. It’s important to speak with a Yourderm.ca professional to find out how many treatments you may need, and what to expect.

Why PicoSure Laser Treatment?

As the number of individuals with tattoos has increased, so has the need for improved tattoo removal methods. Tattoo removal methods have evolved from potentially harmful treatments that often had painful and sometimes permanent side effects to less harmful methods with good results. Until the introduction of laser tattoo removal, people resorted to tattoo removal methods such as acid treatments, surgical excision, and dermabrasion.

PicoSure tattoo removal often requires fewer treatments than traditional Q-Switched lasers. Also, PicoSure patients and doctors have reported better clearance or “disappearance” of the tattoo with improved recovery time. See for yourself, contact YourDerm.ca today.

“The best decision I ever made. Thanks to Ildiko and her team I now have my confidence back. I can’t tell you how stressful it was going into a social situation with the fear of breaking out into a heavy sweat. I recommend miraDry treatment to anyone who wants to eliminate sweat and odor in the underarm area.
