DISCOVERY PICO Series is the first picosecond laser for the removal of tattoos, pigmented lesions and skin resurfacing/rejuvenation treatments thanks to its powerful photo-acoustic effect for the minimum overheating of the surrounding areas with the best efficacy and safety.
The laser treatment is considered to be the only safe and effective procedure for tattoo removal. Using very short pulses, the laser is capable of fragmenting the tattoo ink to produce tiny particles that will be processed by the human body in the weeks following the treatment.
This treatment is particularly indicated for people who desire to remove completely or partially their own tattoo, it is possible on almost any body areas. The laser professional will have to verify the patient’s eligibility criteria and the exclusion conditions for the treatment.
It is necessary the avoid sunlamps and sun exposure for at least one month before the session, taking care to use SFP 50+ sunscreens.
The number of treatments may vary according to several criteria like the skin type, the color (including the amount of ink), the position, the age and the dimensions of the tattoo and the possible presence of scars. An average of 4 to 8 sessions at 45 days interval between each treatment are necessary for the complete pigment’s removal and excellent aesthetic results as well as safety.
The duration of the treatment depends on the dimensions and the colors of the tattoo. For small to middle dimensions’ tattoos, the session only lasts few minutes. Multicolored and large dimensions’ tattoos may require a minimum of 10 to 30 minutes or more.
The patient may perceive a sensation very similar to the stroke of a rubber band on the skin. This tolerable discomfort could be diminished by the use of a cooling system on the skin as well as by the application of a topical or local anesthetic.
The most common temporary effect is the appearance of a white veil on the treated skin called “frosting”, for about 20 minutes, followed by an oedema associated to skin redness lasting for 4 to 7 days. In some cases the specialist may prescribe adequate medications.
It will be possible to notice changes in the skin during the following weeks: the ink will start to fade and some skin areas will start to lighten slightly. The variation will be progressive and the colors will fade treatment by treatment. The final result will be visible after some months from the last session.
