Corona & Irvine
A recent study found that of the people surveyed (the majority being teenagers and people in their 20s), a whopping 78 percent regret at least one of their tattoos.[i] Planning ahead is the best way you can make sure you don’t suffer from tattoo regret, according to the same study. However, whether you thought about it for 5 years or 5 hours, if you find yourself regretting getting one of your tattoos, there’s a new solution offered now at Slender Me Medical – the Discovery Pico series laser. In addition to tattoo removal, the Discovery Pico can be used to remove benign pigmented lesions, acne, wrinkles and scars.
Traditionally, Q-Switched lasers, with nanosecond (one billionth of a second) pulse durations, have been used to remove unwanted tattoos. However, clinical research has found that the Pico laser with picosecond (one trillionth of a second in length) pulse durations can get rid of unwanted tattoos faster than ever before. These incredibly short laser pulses work by hitting the ink particle beneath the skin with such a huge amount of pressure, that the pigment shatters into minuscule dust-like particles. These are then absorbed by the immune system and eliminated by the body.
The Discovery Pico laser is more effective on stubborn tattoos that Q-Switched lasers, and can thus require fewer treatments to achieve a complete, finished result.[ii] Discovery Pico is the most powerful PICO laser; the device features Quattropulse™ Technology, as well as four emission modes with application-specific and distinct pulse structures.[iii] It can effectively treat tattoo colors precisely and evenly.
The Discovery Pico is designed to reduce discomfort and lessen the recovery time often associated with laser tattoo removal. The skin heals quickly and evenly, thus reducing the amount of sessions needed to completely remove a tattoo, and subsequently reducing the risk of permanent scarring or discoloration.
As an exclusive feature of this laser, the Photo-Thermal mode enables our technicians to effectively reduce the skin’s signs of aging through skin rejuvenation.[iv] The laser gently delivers ultra-short pulses that penetrate and break down damaged skin cell layers until a smoother and healthier skin is achieved. This treatment promotes collagen and elastin production and stimulates a non-traumatic tissue healing response.[v] Skin resurfacing can be applied to face, neck, chest, legs, arms and hands. This system of laser skin resurfacing addresses skin disorders and imperfections caused by aging and sun exposure, such as acne scars, brown spots, pigmented lesions, sun damage, freckles, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles. This is an in-office treatment, and after each quick session you can go right back to your busy day. After the treatment, the area may be redden and swollen. However, it should subside in several hours.
The system is FDA approved for skin treatment.
