Tattoos are a way for people to make a visible statement about their identity and values. However, a growing number of people with tattoos are finding that as they age, their tattoos no longer reflect their lifestyle, values or aesthetics.

With break though technology, the PICO Genesis Enlighten III, is an innovative laser treatment helping you move past tattoo regret.

Recent studies show the top causes of tattoo regret include:  being too young when getting the tattoo, doesn’t fit current lifestyle, the tattoo is no longer meaningful or is poorly done and does not look professional.

How tattoo removal works

Successful laser tattoo removal depends on four factors:

  • Penetration: the laser light must go deep into the skin to reach the tattoo pigment
  • Absorption: the colour of the laser light must be more highly absorbed by the tattoo pigment than the surrounding skin. Different tattoo pigments require different laser colours. 
  • Duration: the laser pulse must be very quick (nanoseconds to picoseconds) so that the tattoo pigment is heated to fragmentation temperature before its heat can dissipate to the surrounding skin and cause burns or scarring
  • Intensity: each laser pulse must deliver enough energy to fragment the pigment. If not, no removal will take place.
