As a specialist in tattoo removal, I have heard a good amount of interesting stories why people are looking to remove a certain piece of ink from their skin. There are the break-ups, lost loves, and of course, those entertaining “caught up in the moment” tales from many years ago. Then there are also the cases in which the tattoo may have changed do to scars and injury, weight change, pregnancy, age and a number of other reasons.

At New Jersey Plastic Surgery, our team is always happy to see a patients face when a clean slate is revealed to them after their treatment. If this talk of tattoo removal has you thinking of any of your own tattoos, surely your mind is circling around a few different questions.

Q: DOES THE NEW PICOSURE LASER TREATMENT REALLY WORK IN JUST A FEW TREATMENTS AND CAN IT REALLY EFFECTIVELY TREAT HARD TO REMOVE COLORS?
Picosure is a new classification of laser tattoo removal and is effective for many of the most stubborn colors, including green. Most tattoos can be removed in as little as three treatments!
Q: SO HOW MUCH DOES A TYPICAL TATTOO REMOVAL SESSION COST?
Laser tattoo removal cost varies based on the location and the tattoo itself (size, depth, color/number of colors). Usually, the cost can be anywhere from $100 to $1,000 per treatment depending on the laser, technique and physician. But with PicoSure’s quick results, you will save money with fewer treatments.
