Frequently Asked Questions About Tattoo Removal

Q. How does tattoo removal work?

A. Your dermatologist in McKinney, TX, uses a laser system known as PiQo4, which is a revolutionary laser system and works for all skin types and types of tattoos. You’ll need multiple sessions to remove your tattoo and the number of sessions will depend on the type of tattoo and size of your tattoo. Short bursts of energy will be sued to target and break apart large ink particles. Once those areas are broken up, your dermatologist goes back over it using picosecond pulses. This helps you get the results that you’re looking for.

Q. What’s the average amount of sessions needed?

A. Because of the revolutionary system, you’ll be able to get the results you’re looking for in fewer sessions. Some patients can see the results they want in just 2 sessions, while others may need 4 sessions.

Q. Is tattoo removal painful?

A. This will depend on your tolerance and the size of your tattoo but you’ll be able to take breaks as needed and the session will be over before you know it!
