Although Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation does not sound too exciting, its acronym (L.A.S.E.R) is pretty cool and well known to everyone.  With the popularity of movies over the years from Star Wars to the Guardians of the Galaxy, lasers have propelled into our basic vocabulary and culture.  Today, we use lasers for everything from DVD players, pointers in a classroom lecture, military weapons, medicine and more.  A really cool advancement in medical lasers is tattoo removal for people who no longer want their tattoos or maybe have a bit of “tattoo regret” over time.

In the local area, Dr. Ronald Johnston at Advanced Dermatology and Skin Care Centre uses one of the newest and most advanced lasers for tattoo removal called the Picosure.  The Picosure laser is able to eliminate that “tattoo regret” in fewer treatments than ever before using new technology.  Dr. Johnston explained “…the Picosure laser is able to remove tattoos by hitting the ink and breaking it up into much smaller droplets than prior lasers.  The patient’s immune cells can then eliminate these smaller ink droplets from the body over the weeks and months after the treatment...”(see Image 1).   As a result, the Picosure laser is often able to get significant results in 4-6 treatments (see Image 2).   Pricing for laser tattoo removal is variable and depends on both the size of the tattoo and the number of treatments. 

Lasers tattoo removal is able to eliminate that fading tattoo and ensure you continue to look cool at the beach.  Fortunately, with technology like the Picosure laser, it is able to eliminate the tattoo with fewer treatments.  If you want more information, visit AdvancedDermClinic.com or call for a consultation with Dr. Johnston’s office at (850) 502-5989.

Cool Factors: Advanced lasers, bye bye to those regrettable tattoos
