Pico Laser Tattoo Removal: A Quick Overview
The Pico laser, for years, has been a go-to option for many. It operates on a simple principle: employing short, powerful pulses of light that shatter the ink particles, making it easier for the body to remove them.
Unfortunately, it’s not a one-time affair. Multiple sessions, often spaced weeks apart, become the norm, especially when dealing with vibrant or darker inks.
With each session, costs accumulate, making the removal of larger or more intricate tattoos a costly endeavor.
Despite its popularity, the Pico laser comes with its share of constraints. Certain ink colors remain stubbornly resistant, and there’s always the looming risk of skin damage. Additionally, many users report remnants of the tattoo still visible even after several sessions. Pico laser also comes with its health risks, as the ink is broken down and processed throughout the body and secreted through the lymphatic system. This process is performed on ink that has been banned from the EU, and the effects it can have on your body are unknown.
