Several years ago, Ray Hull made the decision to get tattoos ranging from his face, left arm, and all the way to his fingers. Having been just a teenager at the time, Ray is now regretting such extensive ink. While Ray aspires to be a musician, he has had to work in other lines of work to help support himself. Unfortunately, finding a good job has been difficult for him. He explains, “People do judge you by your appearance before they get to know you, so I have to work within that reality.”
After struggling with judgments over his tattoos, Ray researched for a way to help cover his tattoos. While the laser tattoo removal industry has been around for years, it was the PicoSure laser treatment at The Skin and Vein Center that ultimately caught Ray Hull’s eye. Now after going through the easy Picosure laser treatment, Ray’s extensive ink has now been cleared. Ray is now able to live life without having to worry about what others may think about him before he gets to know them.
Across the country, there are over 45 million Americans who have been inked. Of those, approximately 20% regret getting at least one tattoo and would like to have it removed just as in Ray’s experience. Regardless of how the tattoo got there or why it needs to be removed is not important. With PicoSure laser removal, ink of all shapes and colors can easily be removed. Never before has laser tattoo removal been so effective.
What is PicoSure™ Laser Tattoo Removal?
Approved by the FDA in 2012, PicoSure is the first picosecond laser to remove tattoos and pigmented lesions. Other laser tattoo removal devices on the market feature laser technology that emits energy at slower rates. This reduces the effectiveness of the photomechanical impact that leads to the tattoo’s removal. When the PicoSure laser is targeted over ink it sends short bursts of energy at the skin. As this occurs the ink pigments heat up and split into dust particles that are naturally removed by the body. Under Picosure technology, the pigments are broken into smaller particles that allow for a more significant removal in fewer treatments. The Picosure removes tattoos in 1/2 the time it takes any other laser technologies available today.
A regretful tattoo can truly set you back in life. Through the Picosure laser technology at The Skin and Vein Center, regretful ink can finally be forgotten. With three locations throughout Michigan, The Skin and Vein Center is proud to be one of the only 100 locations within the country that offers this breakthrough in tattoo laser removal.
