Picosure Tattoo Removal Toronto
Laser tattoo removal is costly, inconvenient, and time-consuming. However, it is the finest option.
Tattoos have traditionally been treated using Q-switched nanosecond lasers. Q-switched lasers heat tattoo pigment particles in billionths of a second. PicoSure lasers are quicker because they produce high energy in trillionths of a second.
Compared to Q-switched lasers, PicoSure lasers are more successful in tattoo removal. They are particularly successful for fading tattoos and are non-selective in pigment targeting. In addition, green and blue inks perform best with Q-switched lasers, whereas red and black inks work best with Nd: YAG lasers.
After treatment, both conventional lasers and the PicoSure laser cause epidermal whitening (frosting); it is critical to understand that the white frosting is a transitory side effect of the laser penetration’s heating of skin pigment. Therefore, several treatments will be required, and the tattoo ink may not be entirely removed.
PicoSure tattoo removal can remove different types of tattoos
The outcomes of laser tattoo removal will vary depending on the kind of tattoo, whether amateur or professional, the colour of the tattoo, the patient’s skin type, and the age of the tattoo. It is critical to detect existing scars since most patients are unaware that they have a scar on the treatment site. As documentation, treatment images are essential.
Professional tattoos are the most difficult to heal since the ink is firmly embedded and takes at least 8-15 sessions to improve. Amateur tattoos, such as “stick and poke,” improve quickly and require considerably fewer clearance sessions.
The more colours in a tattoo, the more sessions it will need and the more resistant it will be. The laser works effectively on tattoos that are black or dark blue. Greens, light blues, and reds are also adequate. Purple, yellow, and orange are complex ink colours.
Other variables that impact pigment clearance include smoking, tattoo location, and size. For example, smoking reduces the effectiveness of laser tattoo removal. Tattoos on the feet and legs are also more resistant.
Redness, swelling, blistering, hyper and hypopigmentation are all common adverse effects of laser tattoo removal.
Because each patient’s skin type and tattoo are unique, it is critical to consult with an expert doctor.

The Kirby-Desai scale is often used to determine the likelihood of success and the number of sessions required for laser tattoo removal. Unfortunately, patients are usually given an inaccurate appraisal of the number of therapies available, and they typically participate in the process without fully understanding the likelihood of success. Six characteristics are assigned numerical values in the Kirby-Desai scale: skin type, location, colour, the quantity of ink, scarring or tissue alteration, and layering.
The average number of laser tattoo removal sessions needed was 8, ranging from 3 to 20 treatments. Treatments must be scheduled six weeks apart.
Patients with Fitzpatrick skin types (darker skin) are unsuitable for laser tattoo removal. In addition, because they use the laser on lower settings to minimize undesired side effects like hypopigmentation, they often need longer wait periods between treatments.
