Atlanta dermatologists now offer PicoSure™ tattoo removal

Dermatology Associates of Atlanta Introduces New PicoSure™ For Faster Non-Surgical Tattoo Removal

Atlanta dermatologists now offer PicoSure™, a laser treatment for deep, dark tattoos and benign pigmented lesions.

Dermatology Associates of Atlanta is one of only two practices in Georgia to now offer FDA-approvedPicoSure™ laser for removal of dark, difficult tattoos in fewer treatments than existing laser systems. With this picosecond (trillionth of a second) technology, stubborn blue and green inks can be easily removed providing patients with more effective results that existing nanosecond technology could not. This highly advanced laser system is the first and only picosecond laser for tattoo removal decreasing recovery time for higher patient satisfaction.

PicoSure™ patients also benefit economically from faster results with fewer appointments, reducing overall cost. As the job market stays competitive more individuals are seeking to eliminate their tattoo(s), through PressureWave™ technology, targeted ink is fragmented into very small particles which are then naturally removed from the body.

Dermatology Associates of Atlanta’s board-certified dermatologist Dr. Scott Karempelis shared, “The PicoSure™ laser is especially helpful with green and blue tattoos which have historically required the greatest number of treatments. It will also help dark, dense tattoos that have been treated previously but seem to be stuck with a little deep shadowing. The Picosure™ advanced technology hits this finely dispersed ink with better efficacy.” The number of treatments needed for tattoo removal depends on multiple factors including size, type, amount and color of ink, and age of tattoo. Additional benefits of PicoSure™ laser include treatment of benign pigmented lesions such as brown spots, age spots and freckles.

PicoSure™ is offered through Dermatology Associates of Atlanta’s Laser Institute of Georgia, the largest and most experienced laser center in the Southeast. With over 25 years of laser experience, the providers of the Laser Institute of Georgia treat numerous skin conditions from tattoo removal and wrinkles to rosacea and some skin cancers using the most specialized laser technology.

Board-certified dermatologist and founder of Dermatology Associates Dr. Edmond Griffin also shared, “Dermatology Associates of Atlanta’s physicians have been performing tattoo removal since the first technology was developed in the nineties and have experience with even the most stubborn tattoos.” The high success rate of tattoo removal and quick recovery period makes the PicoSure™ treatment very appealing for patients. Overall the number of visits and total cost of removal of a tattoo should be less than current methods.
