Loveland Tattoo Removal

It wasn’t that long ago that if you got a regrettable tattoo, such as an ex-lover’s name, or misspelled song lyric, you were stuck with it forever. 

Even people who loved their tattoo when they got it, may grow to dislike it as it fades or goes out of fashion. Many people turn to tattoo cover-ups for unwanted ink, but they are then left with an even larger tattoo.

What is PicoSure® Laser Tattoo Removal?

Tattoos can be beautiful forms of self-expression. But when you no longer identify with a tattoo, it can be a massive source of insecurity.

PicoSure is modern tattoo removal technology that has an incredible ability to remove unwanted ink. It works by dissolving the pigment and increasing biotin and collagen.

PicoSure is FDA approved, and Xanadu Med Spa holds its staff members to the highest standards of training and ability. 

This powerhouse laser works better, faster, and with minimized risks. No matter the size, ink color, or location of your ink, we can get rid of unwanted tattoos and exceed your expectations.

We offer free consultations to all our clients, so get in touch today and find out how we can help.

How Does PicoSure® Work?

Tattoo regret is no small matter, and you deserve to feel your absolute best. Fortunately, PicoSure can effectively treat unwanted tattoos.

The PicoSure laser tattoo removal system uses light energy in ultra-quick pulses, that last just a trillionth of a second. Despite the use of such a powerful laser, the short burst minimizes discomfort to the skin. It causes an immediate change in pressure which breaks up the ink into small particles that the body’s lymphatic system can naturally get rid of.

PicoSure technology is a huge advancement from traditional methods such as acid and surgical excision which often did not completely remove the tattoo and were painful with a high risk of side effects. PicoSure on the other hand is incredibly safe, and when administered by trained specialists, such as those at Xanadu Spa near Loveland, CO, comes with very little risk.

PicoSure® Delivers Complete Tattoo Removal With Less Pain and Faster Results!

Compared with old tattoo removal methods, PicoSure acts up to five times faster, which means that a tattoo that might take up to 20 sessions, can be done in four or five.

At the same time, it works to improve skin texture and prevents damage caused by the heat of the laser. This massively reduces scarring and speeds up healing. Leaving you with skin that looks smooth.

PicoSure® Works on All Skin Types

We all have melanin in our skin, which controls its color. Unlike old laser tattoo removal methods, PicoSure targets melanin much more efficiently, which makes it easier to break down ink pigment in skin types that were once more difficult to treat.

While older generations of tattoo removal technology worked poorly on people with darker skin, Picosure works on all skin. This precise ink targeting also helps the skin look better when healed.

PicoSure® Delivers Amazing Accuracy

PicoSure lasers are so accurate that we can work on specific sections of a tattoo. If you only want to cover up a small part of your tattoo, then we can keep what you want thanks to the microscopic laser.

What to Expect From Your PicoSure® Session

PicoSure treatment works quickly. For an average-sized tattoo, individual treatments take around 10 minutes, and you should only need four or five sessions over the course of eight weeks.

PicoSure is also much less painful than traditional methods. Although it does hurt, our clients tend to describe the pain as similar to getting a tattoo, but is over much faster! 

Numbing cream can also be used if you are particularly sensitive.

Laser Tattoo Removal Preparation and Aftercare

Before Your PicoSure Treatment

  • Inform your practitioner if you have any medical conditions or are taking any medication.
  • Your skin should be clean and free from moisturizer, sun cream, or makeup.
  • You should not use a tanning bed for at least two weeks before and after treatment.
  • PicoSure cannot be used during pregnancy.

Aftercare

  • Apply the ointment you are provided with 2-3 times a day to keep the area moist.
  • It is important that you do not pick the area, even if it scabs.
  • Avoid any exercise that might cause you to sweat for 2-7 days.
  • Avoid swimming or hot tubs until the wound is fully healed.
  • You could experience some swelling and redness, or even a little bleeding. This is to be expected and you can use painkillers or a cold compress if it is uncomfortable.
  • Keep the area out of the sun until it is fully healed.
  • Wear loose clothing around the area to give it space to heal.
  • Clean the area every day by running a shower over the area before patting it dry.

Other PicoSure Treatments

PicoSure doesn’t just have the ability to remove tattoos, it can also be used for a range of other skin treatments.

At Xanadu Med Spa, we also offer:

Acne Scarring Treatment

Acne can leave scars, no matter how much you tried to look after your skin. The PicoSure laser triggers collagen and elastin, which visibly reduces scaring.

Discoloration

Birthmarks and freckles are common, and while some of us are comfortable with them, others dislike their marks. PicoSure can break up the cells that cause birthmarks and discoloration and disperse them, making them less obvious.

Wrinkles and Fine Lines

Wrinkles are the source of great insecurity for many people. PicoSure triggers collagen and elastin which tightens skin and reduces wrinkles. We offer a broad range of treatments for aging skin, including botox and fillers. 

What works best for you, will depend on your skin type, so speak to an expert technician in a free consultation at Xanadu Spa and they will advise you on the best treatment for you.
