Laser Tattoo Removal - 1 year ago1 answer
I have developed 3 enormous blisters after having the Picosure procedure, and I'm growing more concerned now that my ankle is swelling. It's 3x bigger. It doesn't make any sense, especially since it was my calf that was treated and not my ankle. Is this normal? I have no pain.

Can macrophages engulf more than just 1 particle of ink at a time, or is it one macrophage per ink particle?

I know that the Picosure laser breaks the ink into smaller particles and by doing so, the body can remove them faster. Can macrophages engulf more than just 1 particle of ink at a time, or is it one macrophage per ink particle?

Does the wavelength of the laser used to remove tattoos matter? Can the Picosure rid ink that is really deep?
Laser Tattoo Removal - 2 years ago2 answers
I am concerned that my small tattoo will not be gone. It was treated 8 times w/ a q-switch laser, and I'm now considering the Picosure. I have read that the Pico's wavelength is shorter, does that matter? I think the ink I have left is really deep.

Why is laser tattoo removal causing my black tattoo to fade into a brown hue?
Laser Tattoo Removal - 2 years ago1 answer
As my black tattoo is being treated, it is fading into a brown hue. A once black outline has not turned brown. Does it still need treatment of a different wavelength to target the brown? Why is this? Will it go away and if so, how long will this take?

Can very densily pigmented black tattoos be completely removed?
Laser Tattoo Removal - 3 years ago1 answer
I understand that black tattoos are the easiest to remove because they absorb the entire spectrum of light that the Laser outputs, but I was wondering, can very dark (heavily pigmented tribal tattoos) be completely removed from lower legs? I realize it will obviously take more sessions, but how many?
