Do you have some ink that you’ve been wanting to erase? The dermatology team at Dr. Patty Miami is thrilled to offer the latest technology in laser tattoo removal: the PicoSure laser. PicoSure fades tattoos in half the time of traditional treatments, and it’s safe to use in all skin types and shades. Don’t go a day longer staring at that ink that no longer reflects who you are. Thanks to laser technology, tattoos no longer have to be forever if you don’t want them to!
How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
When you get a tattoo, the ink is infused deep into the superficial layer of the skin, known as the dermis, which is why tattoos don’t just wash off with topical products. That’s also the reason laser tattoo removal is a multi-treatment process.
To erase a tattoo, the ink must be broken down into small particles with laser energy. These particles are eventually eliminated through your body’s lymphatic system. Depending on the size, ink density, and color(s) of the tattoo, it may take up to 15 sessions until the ink is no longer visible through the skin.
In the past, tattoo removal was a lengthy, painful treatment that carried a high risk of scarring and infection. Back then, the only options for fading unwanted ink were surgical excision, dermabrasion, and sometimes cryosurgery. But thanks to technological advances, modern laser technology allows us to remove tattoos faster, without scars, and relatively painlessly.
Like other cosmetic laser treatments, tattoo removal operates on a principle known as selective photothermolysis, which uses short pulses of light to heat the pigmented areas and destroy the ink while leaving the surrounding skin intact.
The PicoSure laser operates on the same principle but employs a new mechanism called photomechanical PressureWave™ technology, which uses a fraction of the energy to emit ultrashort pulses of light that last just a trillionth of a second (picosecond) to break down the ink into tiny particles. Because PicoSure delivers the energy so quickly, the treatment is faster, and your skin receives much less built-up heat, significantly cutting the risk for complications.
While individual results vary, our Dr. Patty Miami PicoSure laser tattoo removal technology can reduce the number of sessions from 15-20 to just 5 or 6.

Real Clients, Real Testimonials
As Seen On
The Tattoo Removal Process
Before we get to zapping your unwanted tattoo (the fun part!), you’ll meet with a Dr. Patty Miami laser specialist to discuss your removal goals and document the size and colors of your ink. You’ll also discuss your estimated timeline, potential side effects, and how many sessions you’ll likely need.
The number of treatments depends on the type of results you’re looking for. Some patients just need a couple of sessions because they want to fade an older tattoo to make way for new art. Patients that want a tattoo entirely removed for aesthetic or professional reasons will require more treatments.
With the revolutionary PicoSure laser, the tattoo removal process is significantly less painful than previous treatments. Some people report feeling like a rubber band is being snapped against their skin (admittedly not the greatest of feelings) followed by a warm sensation. However, we apply a numbing cream before your session and ice as necessary to make your experience as comfortable as possible.
