Surgical Removal Of A Tattoo Vs. PicoSure Laser Treatment

PicoSure laser tattoo removal is by far the easiest, safest and most effective way to rid the skin of unwanted ink but there’s also another option: Excision (surgical removal) of your tattoo.  An experienced plastic surgeon can easily cut out minor tattoos, depending upon location, and leave a small, discrete  scar.  This is an excellent option for patients who require immediate removal. But as with any scar, be prepared to hear the question, “What happened there?” for the rest of your life.  Removing a large tattoo this way is impractical because the scars are longer than the tattoo and sewing the skin back together would be too difficult.  The stress on the incision site may cause a less than perfect appearance (see example below).  Scars that don’t heal quite right will require surgical revision later to reduce their appearance.

If you want to have your beautiful skin back, like you were never even tattooed in the first place, then PicoSure laser tattoo removal is the best option. Even tough ink or large tattoos, are no match for the picosecond pulse and resultant PressureWave which will easily and cost-effectively restore your skin to its original condition.  If you have a tattoo you want removed safely and effectively with PicoSure I can be reached in Austin, TX @ my new location:  Austin Medspa 512-479-9997.
