If you can no longer identify with tattoos – be it coloured or patterned – or if they are part of a memory you would like to bury, you might want to get rid of them permanently. Traditional tattoo removal requires a significant amount of time to show results and often cause pain and scarring. Some may wonder: is there a better solution?
Yes. The solution is PicoSure®, which is by far the quickest laser tattoo removal treatment available.
How traditional tattoo removal works
In general, there are three traditional ways to remove tattoos. They are chemical peel, skin ablation and surgical removal.
Unfortunately, these three methods can cause significant damage to the skin. If the treatment only works on superficial layers of the skin, tattoos cannot be completely removed. If it goes way too deep, tissues can be damaged and cause permanent scarring.
In fact, tattoo removal is an aesthetic treatment that is best carried out by professionally trained practitioners in medical practices or clinics to ensure a safe and smooth procedure.
Ai Beauty Clinic is here to help by offering a safer, more reliable and no-scarring PicoSure® laser tattoo removal treatment.
PicoSure® laser is by far the quickest and safest way to remove tattoos.
Proudly presented by AI BEAUTY CLINIC, PicoSure® originates in the USA and is the world’s first ever laser system to treat at 755nm wavelength and have the unique PicoSure® Skin Rejuvenation function. This device is FDA- and CFDA-approved for treating pigmentary skin conditions, dark spots and tattoos.
What is PicoSure® 755nm picosecond laser?
PicoSure® is named after the picosecond laser used to remove tattoos and treat benign pigmented lesions safely and effectively.
Picosecond is a unit that measures time. 1 second = 1000000000 nanoseconds = 1000000000000 picoseconds. The pulse duration (or pulse width) emitted by PicoSure® laser technology is as short as one thousandth of a nanosecond, which is exactly one picosecond.
Instead of heat energy, PicoSure® mainly employs a short pulse duration to transmit photomechanical pressure to the targeted tattoo. After breaking up the ink particles, the pigmentation will be metabolised without leaving any scars. By minimising the side effects of photothermolysis, this treatment sees a smaller number of sessions required，and a decreased possibility of dark or white patches in the treated area after treatment.
PicoSure® FOCUS™ Lens Array (FLA) technology works by focusing all laser beams onto the treated area, intensely triggering fibroblast in targeted skin tissues and stimulating production of collagen and elastic fibers. As a result, the patient’s facial skin is smoothed, whitened, tightened and lifted. This technology also helps reduce the appearance of scars and wrinkles, achieving full-face rejuvenation.
What’s unique about PicoSure® is that it engages short laser pulse width to deliver results without causing any significant damage to the skin. PicoSure® laser shatters pigmentation into tiny particles so they can be absorbed and flushed out of the body system by metabolism. This system’s effectiveness makes it the best choice for those who wish to bid farewell to tattoos and all kinds of pigmentary conditions.
PicoSure® 755nm laser is highly effective in eliminating acne scars, tattoos, pigmentation and wrinkles. Most PicoSure® devices operate with 1064nm wavelength. 755nm wavelengths enable a highly focused removal effect on melanin, encouraging metabolism of pigmentation which makes the treatment work 7 times faster than traditional laser. Not only does it minimise thermal damage and the possibility of dark patches developing in tattooed areas afterwards, the PicoSure FOCUS™ Lens Array technology helps break up melanin with pressure waves within one picosecond, stimulating collagen and elastic fibers regeneration and enhancing elasticity in any aging cells.

Traditional Laser Tattoo Removal vs PicoSure® Laser Tattoo Removal
Compared to other laser device systems, PicoSure® laser is more effective in targeting and shattering tattoo ink particles, causes less damage to the skin, requires a shorter healing time and fewer treatment sessions, as well as more efficient in fully removing tattoo pigments.
Hence, PicoSure® is by far the best way to remove tattoos permanently.
Benefits of PicoSure® Laser Tattoo Removal
Optimal Effectiveness & Efficiency: Targets and shatters unwanted ink chromophores so they get absorbed and metabolised. Works more than 10 times faster than traditional Q-switched laser and utilises 20 times more energy than traditional laser.
Quick & Speedy Sessions: Works much faster than traditional nanosecond laser treatments. Damages melanin in the blink of an eye, causing minimal thermal damage to the treated area.
Ability to Remove Wide Range of Pigments: Works on black, blue, red, green, blue and purple tattoo inks.
Short Healing Time, Safe, Painless & Non-Surgical: PicoSure®’s 755nm wavelength laser only works on targeted tissues (such as melanin, visible veins and broken capillaries), causing minimal damage to other surrounding normal skin tissues.
No Discolouration: PicoSure® laser imposes powerful pressure waves on targeted melanin, preventing pigments to redevelop, hence minimising the risk of dark patches developing in treated areas.
Q: Does PicoSure® laser tattoo removal cause scarring?
A: No. PicoSure® targets and breaks up unwanted ink chromophores. The shattered pigment particles are then flushed out of the body system through scabs, blood circulation or cell absorption. This treatment does not damage or scar the surrounding normal skin tissues, which makes it the best tattoo removal method.
Not only does PicoSure® laser tattoo removal not cause scarring, it also helps smooth existing scars without damaging the skin. With the appropriate aftercare, the treated areas will heal and look like any other normal skin again. However, for clients who are more likely to scar, it is advised to inform the practitioner before receiving any treatment to avoid confusion or undesirable results.
Q: How many PicoSure® laser tattoo removal sessions are usually needed?
A: This depends on the condition of the client’s tattoos. In general, PicoSure® laser requires 2-3 sessions to remove black or light tattoo inks, or 4-5 sessions for dark tattoo inks.
Tattoo removal results also depend on:
How big the tattoo is;
How deep the tattoo was needled into the skin. If the tattoo is located on more superficial layers of the skin, it is easier to be lightened or cleared;
How dark the tattoo ink is. Multi-coloured tattoos are usually more difficult to remove than black ones;
The type of tattoo pigment involved. Some metallic tattoo inks are harder to remove.
Q: Does PicoSure® laser tattoo removal bring any side effects? Does the treatment cause pain?
A: PicoSure® laser tattoo removal does not have any side effects. The treatment simply targets and shatters any pigmentation on the epidermis so the broken-up ink particles to scab over and fall off naturally. This technology works according to selective photothermolysis, which only targets and damage melanin and thread veins but not the surrounding normal skin tissues. Without causing much damage to the treated area, this treatment is painless for most.
Q: Are there any aftercare tips after PicoSure® laser tattoo removal?
A: Clients should make sure the treated areas do not come in contact with water within 3-7 days. It is recommended that clients apply SPF on treated areas during recovery. Avoid outdoor activities, swimming or sauna. Avoid spicy food and refrain from smoking and drinking within 7 days.

Sometimes, people use salt to remove tattoos. This is an inexpensive and easily done natural method. Aloe vera is another natural method of removing a tattoo. These natural methods are painless, but they would definitely not be as fast and effective as laser tattoo removal.
You may use salt or other methods of removing the tattoo at home. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) hasn’t approved tattoo removal creams or any other at-home methods due to the absence of proven efficacy and safety.
