Tattoo Removal in Chicago IL

Tattoo Removal | Laser Tattoo Removal | Chicago IL | Vernon Hills IL

Many people have second thoughts about their tattoos. Fortunately, you don't have to live with your decision forever. We are proud to offer breakthrough tattoo removal with the PicoSure Laser.  You can erase unwanted tattoos with the most advanced laser treatment available for safe and effective tattoo removal.  PicoSure targets unwanted ink more effectively than ever before, successfully removing difficult ink colors, such as blues and greens, as well as previously treated tattoos. All this can be accomplished without damaging the surrounding tissue.

How it Works

PicoSure's ultra- short pulse duration goes beyond photothermal action creating an intense photomechanical impact, patented PressureWave, resulting in greater disruption of the target for better clearance with fewer treatments, less fluence and without injury to the surrounding skin.  Even dark, stubborn blue and green inks, as well as previously-treated recalcitrant tattoos can be removed.

How many treatments does it take?

PicoSure is the world's first picosecond laser that fires in a trillionth of a second vs. traditional nanosecond technology.  Nanosecond lasers predominately rely on photothermal action, delivering heat to the pigment and surround tissue. PicoSure takes advantage of Pressurwave Technology to shatter the target ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body.  This process results in fewer treatments, quicker results and faster recovery time than the standard q-switched laser.  Tattoos may be removed in weeks instead of years!
