No More Tattoo Regrets

As tattoos have become more prevalent today, so has tattoo regret. By some estimates, as many as 20 percent of people with body ink end up regretting their decision at some point. Fortunately, those suffering from tat regret can now say goodbye to that art more comfortably and effectively than ever before. At Ocean Plastic Surgery, we offer the latest in Picoway laser tattoo removal, giving our patients an excellent option to bid farewell to their regrettable ink for good.

Introducing Picoway

Picoway is the newest laser technology for the removal of all types of body ink. This picosecond laser works faster than any other device on the market today, effectively shattering ink pigments into tiny particles that can be naturally absorbed and eliminated by the body.

Benefits of Picoway

Picoway actually combines three innovative laser technologies to create a device that can treat all ink colors – even red and orange hues that have been difficult to eliminate with even the best picosecond lasers in the past. The benefits of Picoway over other types of laser tattoo removal include:

Picoway is an advanced revolution option that is not available through many physicians to date. Dr. Small is the first practice in New Jersey  to offer PicoWay and one of a few practices offering the advanced pico technology.

How it Works

A treatment session using Picoway is a simple office treatment at Ocean Plastic Surgery. Most patients  are usually given a topical anesthetic prior to treatment to help minimize any discomfort during the procedure.  Most tattoos can be treated in only a few minutes but the amount of time varies depending upon the size of the tattoo.

After Treatment

Patients are generally ready to return to regular activities as soon as the procedure is over. Skin may be slightly red and tender in the treatment area, similar to how it feels with a sunburn. Those side effects should subside within a few days. It is important to avoid direct sun exposure on the treatment area for a couple of weeks.

Results that Matter

You will see your tattoo begin to fade with each Picoway treatment session. Some tattoos disappear in just two or three treatment sessions, while others may take up to six to eliminate completely. The number of treatments is usually based on the colors of the ink, the size of the image and how well the pigment in the ink responds to the laser.

Tattoo regret doesn’t have to make you self-conscious about your appearance any longer. With Picoway, you can say goodbye to that body ink and hello to clearer skin. To learn more about this procedure, contact Ocean Plastic Surgery at 732-255-7155.

What Real Patients Say

  • "Thank you for being such a terrific surgeon and doing such a great job with my surgery... I waited a while before I spent the money on myself... putting it off because of the expense or not being sure how I felt about the surgery, but also because I didn't want to have to justify spending money on myself, it's so vain and pretentious but it's not. You can't put a price on how different I feel now... It's life changing. If people don't thank you enough they should."

    - N.S.
