Tattoos often represent cherished memories, artistic expressions, or life milestones. However, personal tastes change, and sometimes, so do our feelings toward these inked designs. That's where the revolutionary PICO tattoo removal technology steps in - an innovative solution to tattoo removal. 

PICO technology employs ultra-short bursts of laser energy, efficiently breaking down ink particles. Imagine your tattoo as a massive boulder—a daunting obstacle. Traditionally, lasers utilized longer pulses to break down ink into larger pieces, similar to attempting to move the entire boulder in one go. However, the PICO machine operates on a different wavelength—quite literally. It delivers rapid picosecond pulses, acting like a precision tool that chips the colossal boulder into smaller, more manageable pieces. These tiny ink particles are easier for the body to remove naturally. Just as breaking the boulder into smaller chunks eases the effort, PICO's bursts fragment the ink, making removal more manageable.

Over the last twelve years, Flawless Medspa has been at the forefront of cosmetic innovation in New Mexico. As pioneers, we proudly introduced the state to the transformative power of the PICO laser for tattoo removal. 

We've anticipated the questions you might have:

  • Pain Management: At Flawless, we integrate the Zimmer cooling machine with all our PICO treatments. The Zimmer blows cool air before, during, and after the laser energy has been applied. This cooling system minimizes the pain associated with laser treatments and reduces the risk of thermal damage to the skin.  
  • Number of Sessions: The recommended number of PICO tattoo removal sessions varies based on individual factors such as tattoo size, ink colors, and skin type. Typically, we advise starting with a package of three sessions and adjusting the treatment plan as needed to achieve optimal results.
  • Effectiveness on Colored Ink: PICO technology is highly effective in targeting and removing a wide range of ink colors, including vibrant and challenging shades. Its ultra-short bursts of laser energy can break down various pigments, including darker and more stubborn colors like blues, greens, and purples, which were historically harder to remove with older laser technologies.
  • Post-Treatment Recovery: Recovery after tattoo removal varies based on factors like the tattoo's size, colors, and individual skin response. Initially, there might be redness, swelling, blistering, or mild discomfort resembling a sunburn. Over a few days to weeks, the treated area may scab or crust as the skin heals. Proper aftercare, like keeping the area clean, avoiding sun exposure, and following post-treatment instructions, helps promote healing. 
  • Financing Options: Understanding that quality care should be accessible, Flawless Medspa offers financing options through memberships. Our membership program allows clients to break up payments over 6 months, making tattoo removal more affordable.

Flawless Medspa sets the standard for PICO tattoo removal, offering a safe, efficient, and personalized solution for unwanted tattoos. With our comprehensive approach, catering to all skin types and offering flexible financing options, we ensure a smoother journey towards a fresh canvas.
