Tattoo Removal Service - Laser Treatment in Singapore
Tattoo Removal From $50/ Session (Small Tattoos).
- Picoplus, Picosure, and Picoway are Picosecond laser technology. Picosecond laser treatment is better than Q-switched laser at breaking down tattoo ink as it generates higher power laser energy.
- The price varies depending on the size and colour of your tattoo. 5-10 sessions are required.
- There is a small risk of scar and residual pigmentation changes. The downtime is usually 3-7 days of skin redness.
- Post-laser care is necessary to maximise results and minimise complications - creams, high-grade sun-block helps. Effective and faster recovery means better final results.
Laser tattoo removal is an FDA approved treatment procedure that is widely used for about twenty years as it is proven to be safe and effective.
The procedure can only be done by a certified medical professional as the treatment can be complicated. At Sozo Aesthetic Clinic, our experienced laser tattoo removal doctors use Pico laser technologies to ensure safe and successful delivery of the treatment procedure.
Before proceeding with the treatment, our doctors will consult you and assess your tattoo. The number of Pico laser tattoo removal treatment sessions will depend on your tattoo’s size, type, age, and depth.
After the consultation, our doctors will outline the safest and the most effective approach to get rid of the tattoos.
There may be some temporary side effects such as redness, peeling, blistering, and swelling after the treatment.
How Does Pico Laser Tattoo Removal 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.
Pico Laser versus 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 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).
Pico Plus versus other Pico Lasers
Lutronic PicoPlus is a second-generation picosecond laser that generates one of the highest peak power (1.8GW) in 450 picosecond ultra-short pulse duration.
This makes it one of the most powerful ultra-short pulse pico lasers 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 reliable pigment removal lasers like Spectra (nano-second Q-switched Nd:YAG laser) and Pico 4+ (first generation picosecond laser).
Lutronic PicoPlus has one of 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 party–certified 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.
Price of Tattoo Removal Pico Laser is from $50 / session at Sozo Aesthetic Clinic.
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.
Most patients are able to tolerate the laser treatment after these techniques to minimise discomfort:
- Cooler during laser treatment
- Numbing cream
- Nerve blocks
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
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.
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.
