What Makes the PicoSure® Laser Unique?

PicoSure® utilizes a unique combination of wavelengths to treat a variety of pigmentary skin conditions. This unique technology allows for a gentle, non-thermal (no significant heat) treatment that offers incomparable results with less treatments.

PicoSure® laser tattoo removal safely and effectively shatters all tattoo ink colors, including colors other lasers are unable to remove.

Frequently Asked Questions


  • What makes PicoSure® laser tattoo removal different than other lasers?

    The main features that set the PicoSure® apart from other lasers for tattoo removal are:

    • It is more effective at removing the pigments by shattering the ink instead of burning
    • No damage to the skin under or around the tattoo
    • Most times, there are less treatments for more effective results, meaning less time and less financial commitment
    • Works well on both old and new (fully healed) tattoos as well as recalcitrant tattoos
  • Who is a good candidate for PicoSure® tattoo removal?

    The best candidate for PicoSure® tattoo removal is in good health and mentally ready to undergo the treatment. The candidate needs to possess patience, knowing the procedure isn’t a “quick fix”, but that that tattoo removal with PicoSure® is achievable with enough time and recovery.

  • Will PicoSure® laser tattoo removal work on sensitive or darker skin?

    Laser tattoo removal procedures expose your body and skin to pulses of light. Your exposure to this light should be harmless. However, we find that patients are cautious to proceed with the procedure when they have particularly sensitive skin.

    For this reason, we encourage patients to do their own research prior to seeking treatment. There is no better way for a patient to feel confident of the procedure and knowledgeable of the outcome, than for them to ask the right questions and get the right answers.

    If you have darker skin, laser tattoo removal may affect the amount of melanin in the area of your skin that is being treated.

    To get answers to your questions, schedule a free consultation with North Shore Aesthetics.

  • How many sessions would I need to fully remove my tattoo?

    The number of sessions is dependent on the location of the tattoo on your body, the age of the tattoo, the size of the tattoo, as well as other variables. Generally, between 3-10 sessions would be needed, resulting in a much higher level of success than previous technologies.

    This is much less than older laser tattoo removal technologies where the sessions could be as many as 20 or more with incomplete results.

  • How long will I need to wait between laser tattoo removal sessions?

    In most cases, the time between sessions is 6-8 weeks.
