Top Reasons You May Want to Re-consider Your Ink

 

Now thanks to the NEW Picoway picosecond laser from Syneron-Candela you can escape that shooting star on your ankle or an ex's name on your arm.

PicoWay works on the widest range of tattoos and ink colors on all skin types, even on faded tattoos, which are traditionally difficult to get rid of. The fast, safe, and less painful treatment clears tattoos in as few as 3 to 4 quick treatments, instead of the 12 or more it used to take. How does it work? PicoWay's ultra-short, ultra-fast pulses (a trillionth of a second) shatter pigmentation from the ink into tinier particles that are easier for the body to eliminate.

"PicoWay erases tattoos from a person's skin and memory," says Dr. Tina Alster, Director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery in Washington, D.C. "It produces faster results than similar lasers and can safely treat a wide range of skin types and tattoo ink colors." Therefore, if you're like the 19% of adults with tattoos who cringe at wearing tank tops or shorts because of embarrassing ink, you may relate with one of these top five reasons for tattoo removal:

You're getting married
You found THE dress, but an old tattoo does not go with it. You feel as if you've outgrown the butterfly on your back, but you don't exactly want to sport a turtleneck bridal gown.

You only got it to annoy your parents
Sure, you were 18 and your parents told you NO -all the more reason to go out and get one. Actually, now that you think about it, it was the only reason you got one.

You broke up a long time ago
It's been years since he/she was special, but you wouldn't know it by looking at his name scrawled around your ring finger.

You never really liked it
You had it done on a dare and your choice of tattoo artists was questionable. The quality wasn't exactly what you were expecting, so maybe it's finally time to trade up.

Your lifestyle has changed
Who you were years ago when you got that tattoo no longer represents who you are today. Maybe you've gotten a new job or had a few kids. Today, let's focus on the new you.
