It is estimated that 32% of the US population between the ages of 30 and 45 have at least one tattoo according to a 2013 Pew Research Study. This means that tattoos have been transformed from a taboo to a mainstream trend, with people from all walks of life opting for the inked needle. However, studies also show that many people with tattoos now regret them.

Luckily, there have been major advancements in tattoo removal methods. And now the latest and greatest in laser tattoo removal is now available to Salt Lake City and Utah County residents at Aesthetica Medical Spa.

PicoSure™ Laser Tattoo Removal

The PicoSure laser system marks a new era of laser tattoo removal. And this advanced system does more than target unwanted body ink: PicoSure is also tough on skin discoloration or “dark spots” that come with aging.

PicoSure incorporates the latest in laser technology in order to remove skin discolorations and tattoos more effectively than ever before.

Why PicoSure Is So Different

The PicoSure laser system deploys ultra-short picosecond pulses of energy to the skin to remove tattoos and dark spots. These short pulses from the laser create a photomechanical effect called PressureWave.

How does PressureWave work? It breaks ink and brown spots into tiny, dust-like particles that the body can easily eliminate. The PicoSure laser is able to target dark inks or skin pigment while avoiding surrounding unmarked skin tissue.

This is different than the Q-switched lasers that have been used for years in aesthetic laser skin treatments and laser tattoo removal. Q-switched lasers require longer light pulses and leave larger particles of ink. As a result, Q-switched lasers require more sessions, which are longer and more painful.
