Tattoo removal with the picosecond laser is already significantly less painful than with nanosecond lasers (Q-switched ruby laser, Q-switched Nd:YAG laser).
However, even this new method is not completely painless. The sensation depends on the personal sensitivity to pain as well as the body region where the tattoo is to be removed. It feels like a light flick of a rubber band against the skin.
Tattoo removal is usually much less unpleasant than the tattoo itself.
Picosecond lasers are special lasers that emit ultra-short light pulses in the range of picoseconds. The short pulse duration of the laser leads to
in the removal of tattoos, the colour particles are more strongly reduced in size compared to nanosecond lasers and thus
are broken down faster by the body.
In addition, the laser introduces less heat into the skin during treatment, which minimises the risk of scarring.
Conclusion: Fewer treatments required, less painful sessions!
