PicoSure Laser Tattoo Removal

by CynoSure at Skintique

The No.1 Tattoo Removal Laser in the World

Always better and faster with PicoSure

PressureWave is the secret behind tattoo treatments with PicoSure. PicoSure at Skintique Clinic is the worlds first Picosecond laser and the only advanced tattoo removal laser with PressureWave technology, which works with your body's lymphatic system to remove unwanted ink.

Our PicoSure laser delivers energy to specifically target unwanted tattoo ink which shatters the ink into small particles without damaging surrounding tissues.

Skintique Clinic is the only medical and aesthetic clinic in the East Midlands to offer laser tattoo removal by PicoSure. It offers the fastest, safest and most effective laser tattoo removal in the world. Its unprecedented innovation enables it to shatter even the hardest to treat tattoos.

Lasers do not remove tattoos, your body does, naturally. Let PicoSure help.
During treatments with PicoSure, PressureWave technology is used to deliver ultra-short pulses of specialized energy to targeted ink particles.

PressureWave™ technology in action.
These pulses are so rapid they cause a change in pressure that breaks ink apart into tiny dust-like particles. These tiny particles are then absorbed by the lymphatic system, a critical part of your body’s immune system, and eliminated naturally

We offer PicoSure laser tattoo removal, modification and fading services.

PicoSure – The first and leading choice for comfortable and effective tattoo removal and skin revitalisation treatments for wrinkles, acne scars and pigments like freckles, sunspots and discolouration.

PicoSure is the first of a new generation of aesthetic lasers that don’t rely solely on heat to burn or melt away unwanted tattoo ink or melanin, the pigment that causes dark spots in your skin.

Instead, PicoSure engineers used cutting edge physics and medical science to help practitioners treat patients in a new way. Instead of building up heat, PicoSure delivers energy so rapidly (in trillionths of a second) that tiny particles that make up pigment and tattoo ink vibrate and shatter, without burning surrounding tissue. Less heat means less tissue damage and discomfort.

Even more impressively, PicoSure’s revolutionary technology is designed to harness the body’s natural healing processes to restore youthful skin in ways never before possible. Using proprietary Focus lens technology, PicoSure effectively converts the laser energy into gentle pressure waves that activate Cell Signalling, the body’s natural communication processes and one of the most exciting medical discoveries in recent history.

No Obligation Consultation

Your first step is a no-obligation Visia consultation at Skintique Clinic with one of our skin specialists.

Meeting your Practitioner and the Consultation

Meeting your practitioner for your one-to-one consultation. This will include:

  • A full assessment your skin, concerns and desired results.
  • Details about the procedure, likely outcomes and costs.

After taking a full medical history and reviewing your Visia Gen8 images your practitioner will discuss the range of treatments available at Skintique Clinic for your skin concerns.

Your practitioner will design a bespoke plan with you based on your expectations. You will also be provided with detailed information on the procedures, the likely outcomes and the approximate timescales.

Should you then wish to go ahead with the treatments a future appointment will be made.

Treatment

On arrival for your treatment, you will be asked to check over your medical history form to confirm that nothing has changed. You will be then asked to complete a treatment consent form.

The treatment can take anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour or more depending on the treatment.

Results Review

Many of our treatments are progressive and require a course of treatment for the optimal result. Some conditions will need maintenance treatments to maintain the final result.

Your practitioner will indicate the approximate number of treatments with you at the start. But as everyone is different this can only be used as an approximate guide and not as a guarantee.

The skin cycle on a health individual who has regular treatments is approximately 6 weeks.

Next Appointment

Our team will arrange your next appointment before you leave the clinic.

The total treatment cost will depend on the size of the area being treated, how deep, dark and dense the tattoo is. Prices range from £80.

The full price breakdown will be explained to you during your consultation along with information on how you can pay by instalments interest free.

Frequently asked questions

What is PicoSure?

PicoSure represents the cutting edge of a type of laser technology known as short-pulse lasers. These lasers are designed to “flash” incredibly quickly, in PicoSure’s case in trillionths of a second. This rapid flashing minimizes the amount of heat and creates a photomechanical effect that’s highly effective in removing tattoo ink and unwanted pigment.

How do I know if PicoSure is the right tattoo removal laser for me?

As the leading picosecond laser, PicoSure is able to treat all colours of tattoo ink on patients of all skin-types, so it’s very likely that PicoSure could work for you! Plus, PicoSure has been shown to remove tattoos in fewer treatments so speak to your local provider to about a treatment plan that’s right for you.

Is PicoSure safe?

PicoSure’s ultra-fast pulses and specialized wavelengths work together to minimize the amount of heat that is transferred. Less heat means less damage to surrounding skin and less risk of injury.

What does the procedure feel like?

Because tattoo removal treatments use more energy, patients may experience more discomfort, but your treatment provider should be able to offer numbing cream or other aids to minimize discomfort.

How long does the treatment take?

Procedure time depends on the size of the area to be treated, and 10 minutes is common for average sized tattoo and skin revitalization treatments.

Do I have to avoid the sun before and after treatments?

The sun exposes the skin to harmful radiation. To protect itself, the body produces extra melanin, causing the skin to tan. Since PicoSure targets melanin to remove excess pigment, a heavy tan may interfere with treatment. After laser treatments for removal of tattoos and unwanted pigment, the skin is more vulnerable to sunlight so minimizing sun exposure and use of sunscreen of SPF30+ is recommended.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of PicoSure treatments for unwanted pigmentation will vary depending on the condition being treated and how each individual responds.
For tattoo removal, the size, location and density of ink play important roles in how quickly clearance can be achieved, but 4-12 treatments* is common for modern tattoos. Your treatment provider will be able to evaluate and provide you with a personalized plan.

How long do the results last?

Tattoo removal and acne scar results are permanent. Skin revitalization treatment results are long lasting, but some pigment conditions can be recurrent. Some patients find that a PicoSure Focus treatment every six months can help prevent accumulation of pigment and slow the appearance of wrinkles.

What is the healing time?

Recovery times are dependent on the condition being treated and each patient’s ability to heal. Typical treatment intervals are 2-6 weeks for pigmented lesions and 6-8 weeks for tattoo removal. Treatments for acne scars and wrinkles using the Focus lens array can be performed every 3-4 weeks. Your treatment provider will create a personalized treatment plan for you.
