Bodies change: that’s a fact. As we age and evolve, so does that tattoo we got in Miami at 19 and the makeup trend du jour. Luckily that “permanent” decision you made while you were young doesn’t have to follow you for life. Address unwanted tattoos and permanent makeup with the simple, safe, and effective PicoSure® treatment.
Here’s everything you need to know about how lasers can transform your look safely and effectively. Without the heat or discomfort, PicoSure® gently targets and dissolves the pigmented tattoo ink color.
PicoSure Is Powerful Safe and Comfortable
As the name implies, PicoSure® is a laser device that can use pico-seconds — trillionths of a second — to deliver laser energy to the treatment area.
This is unique for a multitude of reasons: The PicoSure® treatment offered at Lappert Skin Care has the ability to treat black ink as well as colored ink without harming the surrounding skin. Traditional Q-switched nanosecond lasers, which treat the skin in billionths of a second, are much less effective and more painful.
Dr. Lappert will evaluate your specific tattoo(s) and go over our tattoo removal process in detail, answering any questions or concerns you may have about the process. We will also review your medical history and examine your tattoo to determine the number of sessions.
PicoSure Is Versatile
In addition to treating tattoos anywhere on the body, PicoSure® can target granularly, making it ideal for removing permanent makeup. With its concise ability to home in on specific pigment paired with our expert practitioners, even permanent eyeliner and eyebrow pigment can be removed for a clean look.
The PicoSure® device triggers new cellular turnover in treated areas, leading to new collagen and elastin growth, leading the skin to repair quickly and efficiently. Because of this, PicoSure® can also be used to rejuvenate the face, addressing fine lines and wrinkles.

PicoSure Is Safe
FDA-approved for use on tattoos, PicoSure® boasts zero downtime following the procedure. However, it’s important to note that depending on the tattoo’s size, location, age, and color(s), it will likely take multiple sessions to see results. Similar to when you got the tattoo, following the care routine as instructed will give you the best results possible. PicoSure® laser treatments are quick and convenient. Many patients compare the feeling to getting a tattoo.
PicoSure Is Effective
Ultimately, treating your unwanted tattoos and unwanted permanent makeup can help restore your confidence. The PicoSure® laser makes an impact with long-lasting results.
While it may involve investment and patience upfront, when the tattoo is removed, it’s removed forever.
