Tattooing goes back a long way, Greeks and Romans used tattoos, as did some African cultures amongst many others. The first tattoos date from over 5,000 years ago and, as often happens now a days, there would have been people back then who weren’t too pleased with the end result or just regretted their decision to get a tattoo in the first place.
Because of this tattoo removal also goes back a long way and for millennia was very painful and not very effective.
Laser technology was first used in tattoo removal in 1967 and since then has come a long way. In the beginning laser technology was in its infancy and using it was painful, requiring general anaesthesia, and often resulted in scarring and pigmentation issues.
But now back to the 21st century and laser technology has become much more sophisticated. Here at Dundrum Cosmetic Clinic we were the first clinic in Ireland to offer our clients PicoSure Laser tattoo removal. Because we were the first, we have the most experience with this technology. With PicoSure tattoo removal is safe, pain free and completely effective. PicoSure is the latest state-of-the-art laser technology in tattoo removal, capable of removing tattoos from all skin types.
PicoSure is an FDA approved laser technology that uses short bursts of energy for the removal of tattoos. PicoSure’s bursts are measured in picoseconds that cause the tattoo ink to break up into tiny particles that are then eliminated by the body’s immune system. Compared to traditional nanosecond lasers, PicoSure is generally more effective on stubborn colours and requires fewer treatments to achieve the final results.
