Laser Tattoo Removal
Breakthrough tattoo removal – shatter the past, reveal the future.
We all know that first impressions aren’t always accurate. However, if you are sick of being judged by your tattoos instead of your character, remove them with EvolvMD and PicoSure! Even if you have tried laser tattoo removal before, PicoSure can remove stubborn blue and green inks, as well as very dark lines, better than other procedures. Pico Technology delivers ultra-short pulses of energy to shatter tattoo ink and skin spots resulting in greater clearance faster, in fewer treatments with improved recovery time.
What makes Pico technology different?
Prior to Pico Technology Q-Switch lasers were considered the gold standard of tattoo removal. Q-switch laser treatments rely on thermal energy to heat up and break apart the ink particles.
Pico Technology is the culmination of TEN years of research! PicoSure uses ultra-short pulses (faster than one trillionth of a second!) to impale the ink particle with a pressure so great, the ink shatters into sand-like particles. The small ink particle size allows the body to more readily absorb and eliminate the tattoo. The result is better clearance of the tattoo and less treatments overall!

Frequently Asked Question About LASER Tattoo Removal in Wauwatosa, WI
PicoSure uses the most advanced laser technology to date to effectively remove your unwanted tattoos. The PicoSure’s laser pulses are 100 times faster than other tattoo removal laser on the market. The faster laser pulse allows the laser energy to reach deep below the surface of your skin to target underlying ink with less heat and injury to skin. PicoSure shatters the pigment into tiny particles that the body clears through your immune system. Other tattoo removal systems use outdated nanosecond lasers that use heat energy to melt the pigment. As a result, the extreme heat from the laser can also cause burns in the area.
PicoSure is the most ADVANCED tattoo removal laser on the market today. Difficult colors such as blue and green inks as well as very dark lines are effectively and efficiently removed with PicoSure. Previously treated resistant tattoos can see great improvement with just one treatment using PicoSure. A consultation is the best way to learn exactly how the PicoSure can help you remove your unwanted tattoo.
Generally, three to six sessions are required to completely remove a tattoo with PicoSure. Scheduling a consultation is the best way to learn how many sessions your tattoo will need to be removed. Sessions are spaced six to eight weeks apart so the body has time to naturally eliminate pigment from the body and the skin can heal. PicoSure represents a major advancement over Q-switched lasers, which often require 15-20 treatments to see comparable results.
Most people do not find laser tattoo removal treatments painful using PicoSure. EvolvMD uses topical numbing creams as well as a cooling device to keep our clients comfortable. Some patients compare the procedure to getting a tattoo, but for a much shorter duration.
PicoSure was designed to remove unwanted tattoos without damaging the surrounding skin. Although your skin may become discolored after treatment, it will fade and return to normal shortly. All skin procedures have some risk of scarring, but with PicoSure permanent skin damage is very rare. If you scar easily or develop keloids, you should discuss your concerns with Dr. Reiswig prior to undergoing treatment.
After tattoo removal treatment, you can immediately resume your normal routine. Your tattoo may appear gray or frosted after treatment, but this will fade within a few hours. You should keep the affected area out of the sun and frequently apply a topical ointment like polysporin to help the skin heal. Dr Reiswig will specify additional aftercare instructions according to your individual case.
Tattoo ink is unregulated by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) at this time, so individual results will vary. Over 100 different inks are available with many different ingredients. Each person’s tattoo removal results will vary based on MANY factors including: age of tattoo, colors, location, single tattoo verses cover-up, touch-ups, homemade tattoo verses professional tattoo, type of ink, quality of ink, depth of ink, preexisting scarring, prior removal DIY–laser or other methods, health and age of patient, medications, medical history, circulation, skin type (Fitzpatrick scale used for classifying skin type), ethnic heritage, diet, exercise, supplements, lifestyle, stress levels, and sleep habits–just to name a few!
