Laser Tattoo Removal

PICO Laser Tattoo Removal in San Diego

When you need effective San Diego laser tattoo removal treatment, we can help. PICOCARE is a revolutionary tattoo laser that achieves tattoo clearance in fewer sessions and with less pain than previous technologies.

How does it work?

Our PICO Laser creates both photothermal and photomechanical tissue effects within the tattoo, and your body’s immune and lymphatic systems carry away the remaining tattoo particles. Your skin is already scarred by your tattoo; the color is covering the scar. The PICOCARE laser softens the underlying scar tissue that is already present within your tattoo.

Depending on the tattoo, removal with PICOLASER can be completed in 2-10 sessions.

Tattoo laser treatment may normally be uncomfortable, but a variety of cooling and numbing options will be used to make your tattoo removal experience more comfortable. Topical numbing cream, ice, injectable numbing (with lidocaine), and/or an external chilling device (Zimmer chiller) are used in a variety of combinations.

What to expect

  • The interval between treatments is 8-10 weeks on lighter skin types and 12-14 weeks on darker skin types
  • Following the procedure you will have to keep the area moist and covered until fully healed with ointment and nonstick bandage
  • Healing time varies in each person, but expect 7-14 days
  • Avoid exercise the day or your procedure and avoid high intensity exercise for one week following procedure
