(BPT) - Your ex's name is on your forearm and you just got engaged to someone else. That tribal tattoo on your back just doesn't feel like "you" anymore. The infinity symbol on your ankle might not fit with your new career. There are a lot of reasons to rethink your body art, but the excruciating pain, expense and endless treatment sessions needed can be a major deal breaker. Fortunately, ink doesn't have to be permanent, thanks to the new faster tattoo removal lasers on the market.
The more tattoos people get, the more tattoos they eventually regret. According to a recent survey conducted by Syneron-Candela of over 30,000 Americans, around 15 percent reported having at least one tattoo, and 19 percent of tattoo wearers polled have considered having it removed. Among the reasons cited behind their desire to remove their tattoos, over half (51 percent) said they no longer liked their tattoo, and 18 percent believed it no longer looked good. They also ranked safety, effectiveness, less pain and fewer treatments required as their top priorities, along with price.
The PicoWay picosecond laser checks all the boxes for patients,' says Dr. Jennifer Mundt, medical director at Delete Tattoo Removal & Laser Salon in Phoenix, Arizona. 'The PicoWay laser allows us to treat a broader range of skin types and a wide array of tattoo ink colors, even on previously treated tattoos which no longer respond. There is minimal discomfort, and it is much faster than traditional methods. We can clear tattoos safely in as few as three to four quick treatments, instead of the 12 or so it used to take. Our patients having tattoo removal are extremely pleased with the results and how fast the ink clears.'
The PicoWay picosecond technology is ultra fast - literally one trillionth, or one millionth of one millionth of a second per pulse. These short bursts of powerful energy basically blast the ink into tiny particles with absolute precision. The smaller the particles, the easier they are for the body to eliminate naturally. Faster clearance means fewer sessions and less side effects, so anyone who wants a tattoo to be a distant memory can stick with the program until the last drop of ink is gone.
'The PicoWay dual wavelength system is a significant innovation and provides state-of-the-art for tattoo correction. It erases tattoos much faster than other lasers and safely treats the widest range of tattoo ink colors, including black and multicolored tattoos. It's also safe for all skin tones,' says Dr. John L. Jennings, Jr., Founder of the Goldsboro Skin Center, Goldsboro, N.C. 'The PicoWay process can be performed quickly so you can get back to work, pick up the kids, or go to the gym right after treatment without any downtime,' he says.
