Tattoo Removal

Who Is It For

Tattoo Ink – Black and Multi-coloured tattoos

How Does Laser Work?

Tattoo removal lasers breaks down tattoo ink using bursts of laser energy.

Subsequently, the tattoo ink will be gradually removed by your immune system.

Why Choose A Picosecond Laser Over Q-switched Laser For Tattoo Removal?

Not all lasers are equal.

To achieve a good tattoo removal result, the laser must be able to generate High Powered Beams in Short Pulses.

High powered laser beams are needed to shatter the tattoo ink particles. Short pulses ensure that there is less damage to surrounding skin.

The most advanced tattoo removal laser is the Picosecond Laser.

The Picosecond Laser is the better than Q-switched laser at breaking down tattoo ink because it can generate higher power laser energy in shorter bursts (picosecond versus nanosecond bursts).

This results in tattoo ink being shattered into smaller fragments which are more easily removed by your body’s immune system.

Achieve Better Tattoo Removal Results More Quickly and More Safely.

Why Choose Lutronic PicoPlus Over Other Picosecond Lasers?

Lutronic PicoPlus is a second-generation picosecond laser that generates the highest peak power (1.8GW) in the gold standard 450 picosecond ultra-short pulse duration. This makes it one of the most powerful ultra-short pulse pico laser in the world. This ensures that results are faster, and more effective with fewer treatment sessions.

Lutronic PicoPlus’s stable laser beam profile comes from Lutronic Corporation’s long-standing track record in producing cutting-edge pigment removal lasers like Spectra (nano-second Q-switched Nd:YAG laser) and Pico 4+ (first generation picosecond laser).

Lutronic PicoPlus has the most versatility amongst Picosecond lasers in tattoo removals with 4 Picosecond wavelengths (532nm, 595nm, 660nm and 1064nm).

Lutronic PicoPlus is amongst the few third partycertified true picosecond lasers available in Singapore like the Discovery Pico, PicoSure, and PicoWay.

Certain other lasers may be marketed as “Pico technology” but they are not true picosecond lasers, and are unable to generate the speed as a genuine pico laser, and may not deliver similar results.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

How much improvement can you expect after laser tattoo removal treatment?
Picosecond Lasers can remove tattoos with 80 – 90% improvement in 4 – 5 sessions.

The most dramatic improvements are seen in the first few sessions. Some of my patients have 50 – 70% improvement after 1 session.

Is it painful?
Most patients are able to tolerate the laser treatment after these techniques to minimise discomfort:

  • Iceing
  • Cooler during laser treatment
  • Numbing cream
  • Nerve blocks
Will tattoo removal leave any scars?
There is a small risk of scarring and residual pigmentation changes, which can be hypopigmentation or hyperpigmentation.

You may be more prone to these side effects if you have:

  • Darker skin
  • Colourful tattoos
  • Large tattoos
How long is the downtime for laser tattoo removal?
The downtime is usually 3 – 7 days of skin redness and mild scabbing. During this time, sun protection is of utmost importance.

Post-laser care is the difference between achieving a good result and development of complications.

How can you get the best results after tattoo removal treatment?
Most tattoo removal clinics rarely emphasise on the importance of post-laser care. Similar to getting quality rest and diet after a strenuous work-out, a comprehensive post-laser recovery protocol is necessary to maximise results and minimise complications.

More effective and faster recovery means that you can achieve your tattoo removal in fewer sessions.

We speed up the recovery process using a recovery protocol of low level light therapy, medical-grade recovery creams, wound dressing and high-grade sun-block. This usually halves the recovery time.
