What is laser tattoo removal?

Laser tattoo removal is an effective treatment to eliminate your unwanted tattoos using a focused laser light. Vein Specialists Institute offers laser tattoo removal in the Palm Desert office, so you can easily fit this outpatient treatment into your busy schedule.

How does laser tattoo removal work?

In laser tattoo removal, the Vein Specialists Institute team uses the state-of-the-art PicoSure laser system. The PicoSure system allows for adjustments based on tattoo size, color, and your skin tone.

It includes two laser wavelengths, with the 755nm wavelength targeting darker shades, including black, blue, and green ink. The 532nm wavelength targets the hard-to-treat colors like yellow, orange, and red effectively. PicoSure doesn’t harm the surrounding skin.

The PicoSure handpiece emits ultra-short (picosecond) pulses to your skin, targeting your unwanted tattoo. This creates an effect called PressureWave™, in which the ink absorbs the laser light and breaks into tiny dustlike particles.

You’ll absorb and eliminate the particles in time. This unique process leads to more effective tattoo clearing than was previously possible.

What types of tattoos can laser tattoo removal treat?

PicoSure laser tattoo removal can treat a very wide range of tattoos effectively. The Vein Specialists Institute team has more than seven years of experience with high-tech laser tattoo removal, and some of the many tattoo types they treat are:

  • Names and words in cursive or block letters
  • Rings around fingers, wrists, or other areas
  • Designs of all types, such as characters, flowers, tribal art, and others
  • Sleeves and other large pieces of artwork
  • Partial tattoos (one or more small parts of a larger tattoo)

The team skillfully removes virtually every type of tattoo on a regular basis, so rest assured that they’re prepared to treat even the most challenging inks effectively.

How many laser tattoo removal sessions will I need?

Laser tattoo removal requires a series of sessions. You’ll experience progressive fading with each treatment.

The total number of sessions needed depends on individual factors like the size of the tattoo, the type of ink, and the length of time between treatment sessions. The PicoSure laser offers maximum efficiency and optimal results in fewer treatments than other tattoo removal lasers.

With extensive laser tattoo removal experience, you can rely on Vein Specialists Institute for the best results. Call or book an appointment online today.
