Tattoo Removal in Annapolis, MD
Did you know that out of the 25% or so Americans that have tattoos, nearly half of them eventually want a tattoo removed? If you’re one of them, you’re definitely not alone. But the common question we hear is, how does tattoo removal work? To answer the questions of how tattoo removal works, we need to go back to the basics of what a tattoo is. Tattoo ink actually comprises of metal particles, and the combination of metal particles determines the tattoo pigment (lighter, darker or different color). Right when those metal particles enter your body, your immune system registers them as foreign bodies, and white blood cells attempt to engulf these metal particles. The problem is, they are way too big for the white blood cells to “eat”, so they can only chip away at them over time. This is also why tattoos tend to fade. The most common type of tattoo removal is laser treatment. We use the PicoSure Laser, one of the most advanced lasers for this procedure.

PicoSure Tattoo Removal
The PicoSure laser is the most advanced tattoo removal technique out there today. What this machine does is create really short laser pulses (a picosecond in length, hence the name). These metal particles break apart and your own immune system begins to engulf the particles to inevitably make it fade away.
How Does Tattoo Removal Work?
PicoSure is not invasive at all and uses advanced laser technology in conjunction with your own immune system to naturally break apart and remove tattoos. Learn how this process works and how long it takes to see results.
