Laser Tattoo Removal: What You Need to Know

Vegas – the mother of all bad decisions.  We all know the story.  You go to Vegas, you unhinge your brain from your capacity to reason and you wake up the next morning sadder, but wiser.

Far too often, the source of your sadness and new found wisdom is a tattoo.  It is unfortunate.  It is not really a statement of who you are.  It is obscene.  You want it off.

Even if you didn’t get your tattoo in Vegas, you’re regretting one or more of them, or you wouldn’t be reading this.  You’re here to find out what you need to know about laser tattoo removal before committing.

See?  You are wiser and proactive, too!

So, let’s review laser tattoo removal:  what you need to know.

Choose a reliable technician.

Because of the almost supernatural power of Las Vegas to compel bad decisions, there are a lot of tattoos out there on the bodies of people who regret them.  But let’s be fair – it’s not just Vegas.  Tattoos from all over the place are sources of regret.

And that’s the reason there are so many people in the market claiming to have what it takes to remove tattoos with lasers.  The problem is that many of those people aren’t licensed to do so.  Your first job is finding someone who is fully licensed and trained to perform this procedure.

Improper use of laser technology can result in irreparable harm to your skin, so take your time and go to a professional with the right education and licensing to ensure your tattoo removal is effective and safe.

At Ethos, we use the most advanced laser tattoo removal technology available.  Which brings us to PicoSure.

PicoSure – a revolution in laser tattoo removal.

PicoSure is a breakthrough in aesthetic treatments.  In fact, it’s the first laser technology of its kind to be used in the world of cosmetic therapies.

PicoSure uses picosecond laser technology, delivering laser light in “picoseconds” (one-trillionth of a second bursts).  Because of the brevity of laser light exposure, the ink in tattoos is literally broken apart.  This allows it to be safely absorbed by the body.

It’s also been proven in clinical studies that PicoSure requires fewer sessions for total removal of tattoos than other therapies.  It’s also much more effective on ink colors which normally present a challenge to removal technicians – orange, red and yellow.

It’ll take time.

Unfortunately, laser tattoo removal takes several sessions to completely remove the offending graphic.  There is no silver bullet in the world of laser tattoo removal.  With PicoSure, your time investment is reduced, due to the nature of the technology.  Good news, right?

Let’s erase that bad decision.

Ethos Spa Skin & Laser Center is proud to offer a definitive answer to bad decisions. You don’t have to wear your regret on your sleeve (or anywhere else on your body) for the rest of your life.  Laser tattoo removal: what you need to know is a good place to start.  Contact us to find out more.
