InkOff MD – PicoSure Speeds Up Tattoo Removal Process

Official Website:

InkOff.MD is located in Honolulu Hawaii and is headed by Dr W. Y Chung MD. Dr. Chung opened InkOff.MD in February of 2013 and he is one of the first physicians in the world to use the PicoSureā„¢ laser to remove tattoos.

Ink-Off-HawaiiThere’s new technology available to quicken the pace of tattoo removal. InkOff.MD’s W.Y. Chung, M.D. says PicoSure laser technology renders all previous lasers obsolete.

The doctor is the first to bring the FDA-approved PicoSure laser to Hawaii, one of only three centers in the nation to have the device that halves treatment time and removes difficult colors like blues and greens.

It’s a godsend for those whose job prospects have been limited by the one- to two-year period it can take to remove a tattoo. With the PicoSure, Chung said most patients will see up to 75 percent of a tattoo removed in their first visit, and complete removal in three or four treatments in the course of three or four months, vs. 10 treatments over one to two years for a typical 6-square-inch bicep tattoo.

The device uses pulse duration, or pressure waves to break up the ink into smaller particles than previous lasers, with less heat, so patients feel less discomfort. The analogy given is comparing old ink size to pebbles, and new ink size to sand, which enables the body to flush it more rapidly.
