What Is PicoSure® Laser

Whether you're looking to rejuvenate your skin, reduce sun spots, or for laser tattoo removal in Boston, Picosure Laser may be the solution you've been searching for. Picosure Laser is a revolutionary technology that utilizes short-pulse laser energy to target specific areas of the skin without damaging the surrounding tissue. This results in a more comfortable and efficient treatment with minimal downtime, gaining popularity for its effectiveness and speed.

How does Picosure Laser work?

Picosure Laser emits short pulses of energy that target the pigments in the skin. These pulses are so short that they are measured in picoseconds, which is why the laser is called Picosure. The energy from the laser breaks up the pigments into smaller particles, which are then eliminated by the body's natural processes.

Benefits of Picosure Laser

Picosure Laser is a safe and effective option for laser tattoo removal, skin rejuvenation, and sun spot removal. One of its significant benefits is that Picosure Laser is faster than other types of laser technology, which means you may need fewer sessions to achieve your desired results. Some of its other benefits include the following:

  • Picosure Laser is designed to be less painful than different types of laser technology, which means that you may experience less discomfort during the procedure
  • The Laser is less likely to cause side effects such as scarring or changes in skin pigmentation than other types of laser technology
  • Picosure is more effective than other types of laser technology at removing stubborn pigments, such as green, black, blue, and red
  • Treatments can reduce the appearance of sunspots and other pigmentation issues

Picosure Laser for Laser Tattoo Removal

Tattoos are incredibly popular, and offer a way for individuals to express themselves, their feelings, and their passions. However, as the number of people getting tattoos increases, so does the number of people looking to have their ink removed. Feelings and passions change, but a change of heart does not have to be a lifelong burden. If you're considering laser tattoo removal, here are some things you should know about the process and effectiveness of Picosure Laser.

The Tattoo Removal Process

When you get a tattoo, the ink is injected into the dermis layer of your skin. Over time, your body's immune system will try to remove the ink particles, but it can't do so completely. That's why tattoos are permanent. Laser tattoo removal works by breaking up the ink particles into smaller pieces that your body can more easily remove.

During a session of Picosure Laser in Boston, the laser emits short pulses of energy that target the ink particles. The ink absorbs the laser's energy, causing it to break into smaller pieces. Over the next few weeks, your body's immune system will remove those pieces.

How Effective is Picosure Laser for Tattoo Removal?

Picosure Laser is considered one of the most effective lasers for tattoo removal, but success depends on several factors, including:

  • The size and color of your tattoo: Small tattoos and black ink are the easiest to remove, while other sizes and colors may require more sessions.
  • The age of the tattoo: Older tattoos are also easier to remove than newer ones, as the ink particles have had more time to break down.

After Your PicoSure® Tattoo Removal Session

Recovering from a PicoSure® tattoo removal session will take a few days, and healing normally occurs in two to three weeks.

The initial 24 to 48 hours may involve some discomfort, and the treatment area will feel like a mild to severe sunburn. Blisters are not uncommon and should be left alone to resolve on their own.

During the first several days, patients should avoid any vigorous activity that may irritate the treatment area. To prevent rubbing, loose clothing should be worn.

The treatment area should not be exposed to the sun, as this could result in discoloration. It can take a week or more for the blisters to dry up and peel.

Ice may be applied for 20 minutes every hour during the first day, then every two hours. A sterile dressing, Tegaderm, provided by our office, should be worn for the first three to five days. The Tegaderm plus the ice will help to decrease the pain.

Dr. Montilla recommends Silvadene® cream be applied twice daily once the Tegaderm is removed. You will be given a prescription.

Your laser tattoo removal with Sarah

Your laser tattoo removal is performed by Sarah, our laser technician and medical assistant. Sarah uses the gold standard laser for tattoo removal, the PicoSure by Cynosure. With over 17 years of clinical and hospital experience and a degree in Human Services and Rehabilitation, she is trusted for her care, understanding, and the excellence of the results she achieves.


Potential Risks of PicoSure® For Tattoo Removal

While scarring is possible with any laser tattoo removal, it is rare, especially when the treatment is performed by an experienced professional. Dr. Montilla or a laser technician will conservatively treat the pigmented area in a meticulous and precise manner to avoid scarring. This also decreases the chance for hypopigmentation, which can occur in patients with darker skin or having dark tattoo inks removed. During your tattoo removal consultation with Dr. Montilla, he will review all potential risks and complications.

Cost of a PicoSure® Treatment

The total cost of laser tattoo removal in Boston will depend on the individual patient’s tattoo. The size, type of ink, and age of the tattoo can all factor into the number of treatments that may be required. On average, PicoSure® treatments start at $100 - $250 each for a business card size or smaller. A tattoo that is the size of two business cards is usually about $500 per session. The advanced PicoSure® technology means that fewer treatments are required, sometimes cutting the total number in half. There is no additional charge to treat more than one color of ink. We will give you a quote for larger tattoos at your consultation. There are savings on offer when purchasing four or more treatments as a package.

A PicoSure® consultation appointment with Dr. Montilla is $100. If you are treated the same day, this amount will be deducted from the cost. At the consultation appointment, Dr. Montilla or the laser technician will look over your tattoo(s) and discuss your desired results. They will then explain all of your tattoo removal options and show before/after photographs of his recent patients. If it is decided that laser tattoo removal in Worcester is right for you, a personalized treatment plan will be created, and the total cost of treatment will be established.

Although the PicoSure® has the ability to address all colors of tattoo ink at a faster rate than other lasers, multiple sessions will help attain the optimal, desired results. The number of sessions required is related to the colors used, the depth of color, the size of the tattoo, and its location. Most patients should expect a series of four to six treatments, spaced at least for six to eight weeks apart. This treatment is also useful for skin rejuvenation of scars, wrinkles and suns pot removal and can be done in our Boston and Worcester office, a series of four to six treatments is also standard.

PicoSure® Skin Rejuvenation Treatments

The PicoSure® laser can also be used for rejuvenating the face, hands, legs, décolleté, chest and back. It can help with acne scars, pigmented lesions and some fine lines. The PicoSure® is perfect for those looking to improve the skin’s texture and tone and there is little or no down time.

Picosure Laser for Sun Spot Removal

Sun spots, also known as age spots or liver spots, are flat brown or black spots on the skin due to prolonged sun exposure. They are most commonly found on the face, hands, and arms of people over 50. While sun spots are not harmful, they can be unsightly and may cause self-consciousness.

Picosure Laser energy is absorbed by the melanin in the skin, causing it to break down into smaller particles that the body can naturally eliminate. It’s highly effective for sun spot removal because it targets the pigments without damaging the surrounding skin.

There are several benefits to using Picosure Laser for sun spot removal in Boston, including:

  • Non-invasive treatment, meaning there is no need for incisions or anesthesia
  • Treatment typically takes less than 30 minutes, depending on the size and number of sunspots being treated

Before Your PicoSure® Skin Rejuvenation Session

All Picosure procedures are performed in our Boston and Worcester office and typically take less than 15 minutes per session.

Patients should wear loose-fitting, comfortable clothing, especially over the target area.

While the PicoSure® laser is less painful than other techniques, there is still a degree of discomfort, while fractional treatments for rejuvenation have minimal pain.

A topical numbing cream will be applied 30-45 minutes before the treatment. Ice is also applied after treatment. On occasion, Dr. Montilla will inject lidocaine in selected areas if needed for comfort.
