While tattoos are more popular than ever, there has been a corresponding increase in tattoo regret. Tattoo regret usually occurs when the attraction for a particular tattoo design wears off. This is because most tattoos result from an impulsive decision or desire to look cool.
Additionally, visible tattoos may give off a negative impression to potential employers. Studies have shown that hiring managers in hospitality, banking, city councils and universities were concerned about how their customers might perceive and react to visibly tattooed workers.
With up to 3 out of 4 people experiencing tattoo regret for at least one of their tattoos, many are now considering having one or more of their tattoos removed. Fortunately, if you have an unwanted tattoo, there is something you can do about it – you can get it removed!
Laser tattoo removal treatment is one of the safest, most popular and effective ways to get your unwanted tattoos removed permanently. At Xanadu, we utilise two of the most effective laser treatments for tattoo removal currently available on the market:
Tattoo removal lasers produce a light beam at a specific wavelength that can be aimed directly at part of a tattoo – which is essentially coloured ink. Once the laser beam hits the ink it results in an intense photomechanical shockwave that shatters and disperses coloured ink into many tiny particles. These are then absorbed and eliminated via your body’s lymphatic system.
A tattoo design is usually removed colour by colour with the laser wavelength adjusted accordingly.
The MedLite C6 is known in the industry as the gold standard nanosecond laser for tattoo removal of any colour. It is also highly effective for a wide range of patient skin types and conditions.
On the other hand, PicoSure uses slightly different technology and is the more recent tattoo removal device to enter the market. The PicoSure is a picosecond cosmetic laser that focuses light energy into your skin at trillionths of a second – that equates to light pulses up to 100 times faster than nanosecond lasers.
Although the Medlite C6 and PicoSure are very similar, there are some differences between the two laser treatments to consider before deciding on which is best to use for your tattoo removal needs and budget.
In some cases of tattoo removal, the combined use of both treatments provides the most effective clearance since different inks and skin types respond better to different lasers. Additionally, some tattoo artists mix different coloured inks for aesthetic effect which further complicates removal.
Here are some comparison points between Medlite C6 and PicoSure:
