About Tattoo Removal

The intricate artistry of tattooing often tells a unique story, but as time passes, some may seek to clear their skin and start afresh. People choose to remove their tattoos for a variety of reasons, including changes in personal preferences, professional aspirations, or simply wanting a clean canvas. Whether it’s a decision made in haste or simply outgrowing the design, the desire for tattoo removal is a common one. With laser tattoo removal, patients can remove unwanted ink and reach their cosmetic goals.

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal With PicoSure Work?

PicoSure laser technology sets the gold standard for tattoo removal procedures with its revolutionary picosecond pulses. These ultra-short pulses are far shorter than any other laser treatment, lasting a trillionth of a second, (1) breaking down tattoo ink into tiny particles efficiently with minimal damage to the surrounding skin. With three different treatment wavelengths (532nm, 755nm, and 1064 nm), this advanced technique can target a wide range of colors, including stubborn blues and greens, which were traditionally challenging to remove.

PicoSure vs. Q-switched Laser

Q-switched lasers are advanced devices that deliver high-intensity light pulses in extremely short nanosecond durations, targeting tattoo ink while minimizing damage to the surrounding skin. Though efficient, these devices have been eclipsed by the PicoSure laser. Research shows that picosecond lasers are almost twice as effective at removing black pigment as Q-switched lasers. (3)

Benefits of Laser Tattoo Removal

  • Precision Targeting of Tattoo Pigment: PicoSure’s precision targeting ensures accurate removal of tattoo pigment, yielding optimal results with each session.
  • Effective on Various Ink Colors: Regardless of the colors used in your tattoo, PicoSure’s versatility ensures effective removal across a spectrum of ink shades.
  • Minimal Discomfort: Experience tattoo removal with minimal discomfort, ensuring a more comfortable procedure and recovery process.
  • Reduced Risk of Scarring: With PicoSure, the risk of scarring is significantly reduced, providing you with peace of mind throughout the removal journey.
  • Fewer Treatment Sessions Required: Benefit from the efficiency of PicoSure technology, which often necessitates fewer treatment sessions compared to traditional methods.
  • Little to No Downtime: Enjoy minimal disruption to your routine, as PicoSure tattoo removal typically involves little to no downtime post-treatment.

Candidates for Laser Tattoo Removal

Whether you’re looking to remove a small tattoo or multiple larger ones, the PicoSure tattoo removal system provides a comprehensive solution for those seeking a reliable and efficient way to bid farewell to unwanted ink.

  • Light hypersensitivity

  • Taking/taken isotretinoin within the past 6 months
  • Herpes simplex infection in the treatment area
  • Pregnancy

Personal Consultation

If you believe laser tattoo removal is right for you, it is crucial to undergo a consultation with us to assess your unique circumstances. This will encompass factors such as the tattoo’s age, dimensions, and hues, along with the characteristics of your skin. This thorough evaluation allows us to craft a bespoke treatment plan designed to achieve optimal results while prioritizing your safety and comfort. Come prepared to ask questions and give details about your medical history and the medications you take.


  • Avoid certain topical products (e.g. benzoyl peroxide, acids, retinoids).
  • Limit UV Exposure. Stay out of the sun and do not use tanning beds or self-tanners.
  • Do not apply lotions or makeup to the treatment area on the day of your procedure.
  • Shave the treatment area before your session. Do not wax or use depilatory creams.

In addition to the above, Ladybelle Medspa will provide you with all the relevant information you need to prepare for laser tattoo removal.

Tattoo Removal Procedure

The laser tattoo removal procedure is short and straightforward. It starts with applying a topical numbing to the area to reduce discomfort. We will direct you to sit in a position that enables your laser technician full access to the tattoo. The PicoSure system delivers rapid pulses of laser energy in short bursts, breaking down tattoo pigments into minuscule particles that are naturally eliminated by the body’s immune system over time. Depending on the age, color, and location of your tattoo, this process can take several sessions to get the most effective results – usually between 4-10 total spaced a few weeks apart.

Recovery & Results

Following the procedure, minimal downtime allows you to resume your daily activities shortly after. The treated area may experience some redness or minor discomfort, easily managed with post-treatment care instructions provided by our expert team at Ladybelle Medspa. As your skin heals, you will begin to witness the remarkable effects of PicoSure, with tattoos fading away gradually to reveal smoother, clearer skin.

Cost of Laser Tattoo Removal in Fountain Valley

The pricing for PicoSure Tattoo Removal is determined by various factors unique to each individual seeking this treatment. Factors such as the size, color, and complexity of the tattoo, as well as the number of sessions required for optimal results, will contribute to the overall cost. During your consultation, we will provide you with a detailed breakdown of the expenses involved in your personalized PicoSure tattoo removal journey.

Compared to traditional methods like Q-switched lasers, PicoSure offers faster results, fewer sessions, and reduced risk of scarring. Its versatility in treating different ink colors makes it a preferred choice for many seeking tattoo removal.

Does PicoSure tattoo removal hurt?

The tattoo removal process with PicoSure involves ultra-short pulses of energy targeting tattoo ink while minimizing damage to the surrounding skin.

However, discomfort levels will vary among individuals based on personal pain thresholds.’

Can I get PicoSure treatment if I have a darker skin tone?

Candidates often inquire about the suitability of different skin types for PicoSure tattoo removal. PicoSure’s advanced technology allows for greater versatility in treating various skin tones, including darker skin types that may be more challenging with traditional lasers.
