No More Regret

When you first got your tattoo, you felt certain that you would enjoy having it forever. Now that several birthdays have passed, you’re starting to have some regret. Maybe you’re looking for a new job or you have simply outgrown the tattoo. Whatever your reason for the regret, our cutting-edge PiQo4 laser tattoo removal in Philadelphia can help to create a new you.

Tattoo removal at the Dermatologic SurgiCenter

Since laser tattoo removal came on the scene, you no longer have to endure a long and painful process that didn’t always produce desired results. Discomfort, treatment time, and effectiveness have all improved significantly. While the concentrated bursts of light from the laser still produce some discomfort, it is quite manageable.

PiQo4 laser technology effectively removes all common colors tattoos, either amateur or professional. This new technology targets both large and small tattoo particles simultaneously, breaking them into tiny particles that are naturally removed by your body. The laser only targets the ink and will not harm the surrounding skin.

The number of treatments needed depend on the tattoo itself, the area of the body and the background skin color.

When the intense light bursts penetrate your skin, they break the ink into particles so tiny that you can no longer see them. The particles then travel through your blood stream and your body eliminates them via its natural processes. The light from the laser has no harmful effects on your skin.

Expectations for tattoo removal treatment

Each laser tattoo removal session lasts only a few minutes. You can expect to come in for several sessions before you can no longer see any traces of your tattoo. Tattoos containing only black ink disappear the fastest because black absorbs all wavelengths coming from the laser. Every other color absorbs the laser wavelengths differently, which makes it harder to predict how long it will take to remove a colored tattoo. Blue and green tend to be easier while fluorescent colors like green and purple tend to be more difficult.

We advise you to wait approximately six weeks between each tattoo removal session. This allows enough time for your skin to heal and for your body to absorb and eliminate the tiny ink particles. Please contact us to learn more about having your tattoo removed at the Dermatologic SurgiCenter in the Philadelphia area.

Not Your Average Laser

The PiQo4 not only provides incredible tattoo removal results, it also provides a solution to address different skin concerns including wrinkles, freckles, birthmarks, brown spots, and melasma. Every treatment is customized to your individual needs. The PiQo4 is a laser that does not use heat; instead, it uses acoustics for neocollagenasis. Since heat is not the primary source of energy, it is safer to use on lighter and darker skin. Optimal results are typically achieved after 3-5 sessions in 2-6 weeks intervals. However, you may continue to see improvements for up to six months following the treatment. You can expect for your dark spots to appear lighter in appearance on the day after the treatment.
