Frequently Asked Questions

How does Lucere’s Laser Tattoo Removal treatment work?

The PicoSure laser works in a unique way by stimulating your body to remove the shattered ink particles. It does this by the PicoSure PressureWave technology that delivers ultra-short pulses of laser energy to shatter targeted ink particles. The FDA-approved PicoSure Device works by seeking out over-pigmented spots or areas of ink on the skin.

The device then converts energy from the laser into quick, controlled bursts of pressure that breaks down the unwanted pigment into small, easily absorbed particles that can be flushed away naturally by the body. The PicoSure is safe for use on all skin types.

What kind of tattoos can the Lucere Laser Tattoo Removal treat?

Thanks to Lucere’s various PicoSure Laser Tattoo Removal wavelengths, we are able to effectively target and treat even the toughest of tattoo ink colours, such as red, yellow and orange. Lucere’s Laser Tattoo Removal is effective for treating:

  • Black tattoos
  • Multi-coloured tattoos
  • Previously treated tattoos
  • Touch-ups
  • Half sleeves
  • Full sleeves
  • Coloured ink

Remember, there is no tattoo laser that can remove white ink from the skin. Treating white ink can result in a risk of oxidation that will turn the white ink grey.

How is pain managed during Lucere’s Laser Tattoo Removal treatments?

The health, safety, and comfort of our patients is our number one priority at Lucere. That’s why we are proud to deliver the highest amount of pain control options for our clients during treatment. Lucere’s Laser Tattoo Removal treatment works differently than other tattoo removal treatments, making it safe for all skin types without the risk of hyperpigmentation or burning, particularly for those with darker complexions.

Unlike other tattoo removal clinics in Edmonton, Lucere has an on-site, Board-Certified Dermatologist and Laser Specialist who understands the complexity of pain management during procedures. Lucere offers top-quality anesthetic and injectable anesthesia for maximum comfort and pain management during your laser tattoo removal session. In addition, PicoSure’s quick energy bursts make the treatment less likely to burn, making it safe for all skin types.

How many Laser Tattoo Removal treatments do I need?

The number of required tattoo removal treatments will vary depending on the size, location, and ink colour of your tattoo. Six to ten treatments are often needed for optimal results.
