Tattoo Removal Q & A
How do you remove tattoos?
At Veins Clinics of Hawaii, Dr. Juleff removes tattoos using PicoSure®, a laser tattoo removal tool by Cynosure®, a leader in aesthetics.
With the PicoSure laser, Dr. Juleff can erase:
- Previously treated tattoos
- Difficult to treat black ink tattoos
- Blue, green, and multi-colored tattoos
How does PicoSure tattoo removal work?
To remove your tattoo with the PicoSure laser, Dr. Juleff points it at the target area, where it delivers ultra-short pulses of energy within just trillionths of a second.
At this speed, when the energy touches your tattoo, it acts as a pressure wave and instantaneously shatters the ink into tiny particles. Your lymphatic system then absorbs these particles and naturally expels them over time.
During your treatment, you feel pressure similar to the pressure you feel during a tattooing session. You may also experience some discomfort.
If you’re concerned about pain, talk to Dr. Juleff before starting treatment. He can take measures to make you more comfortable.
How long does treatment take?
Treatment for an average-sized tattoo takes about 10 minutes. In order to fully remove your tattoo, you’ll likely need to attend more than one session. Dr. Juleff determines how many sessions are best for you based on:
- Tattoo size
- Tattoo location
- Ink characteristics
- Lifestyle choices
Is PicoSure tattoo removal right for me?
- Want to avoid burning your skin
- Don’t want to experience the pain of traditional tattoo removal
- Want to harness your body’s natural healing process
