New tattoo removal procedure shaves off time, reduces pain

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX -

Do you have a tattoo you want to get rid of? Or do you know somebody who does? There's one place in Phoenix that's the only location in the southwest offering a new type of laser treatment that takes out a lot of the pain.

A new laser, called PicoSure laser by CynoSure, can burn off the toughest tattoo in minutes.

"It does it a lot faster the laser delivers pluses of energy a hundred times faster than anything else in the market," says Dr. Lee Laris of Phoenix Skin Medical Surgical Group.

This is Kandase Fernandez's pretty butterfly tattoo. She loved it when she was a teenager, but not so much anymore.

"Now that I am older it's something I try to cover up as much as possible," says Kandase.

In minutes, the inked butterfly wing starts to fade.

"It kind of feels like a burning sensation but it is not too bad, I would rate it a six out of 10."

As good as it looks, Dr. Laris says she will need one more session.

Most of the time it can take a year or more to erase a tattoo. The laser makes it quicker and less painful.
