“Results using the PicoSure laser are faster clearance, fewer treatments, better results, less pain, and quicker recovery time." — Lee Ponsky, M.D.

A new technology recently made available in the Cleveland area will help people with unwanted tattoos, lines, wrinkles, or scarring get a better second chance at clearer and smoother skin, according to Lee Ponsky, M.D., principal at Ink On Ink Off, a new business specializing in tattoo removals, alterations, and skin revitalization.
This new technology, said Dr. Ponsky, is the PicoSure® laser and is the most significant technological advance in laser tattoo removal in more than two decades.
“The PicoSure laser was invented because people wanted a better way to remove their tattoos,” Dr. Ponsky explained. “It makes sense, because of the estimated 10 million Americans who currently have at least one tattoo somewhere on their bodies, 20 percent – or one in five – will later regret it. That’s a lot of tattoo removing!”
According to Dr. Ponsky, PicoSure is the newest and most advanced non-surgical and non-invasive technology for laser tattoo removal – offering faster and better removal in fewer treatments.
“With the old-fashioned lasers like the Q-Switched, removing a tattoo could take up to 10 or 12 sessions, and cost a fortune,” said Dr. Ponsky. “Sometimes the laser didn’t remove all of it, so people were naturally leery of the process.”
The PicoSure laser works by delivering ultra-short (one trillionth of a second, or a picosecond) pulses of light energy that shatter tattoo ink into smaller, dust-like particles that are more efficiently absorbed by the body’s natural processes.
“Results using the PicoSure are faster clearance, fewer treatments, better results, less pain, and quicker recovery time,” Dr. Ponsky said.
“It really is amazing what this guy can do,” said Dr. Ponsky continued. “Even hard-to-remove tattoo colors like blue and green seem to be no problem for PicoSure. Our clients have been extremely pleased with the results.”
Although the PicoSure was originally created for tattoo removal, it was soon discovered that the laser also performed exceptionally well for skin tightening, and for removing fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, and pigment discolorations. In fact, PicoSure is the first and only aesthetic picosecond laser that is FDA-cleared for tattoo removal and skin revitalization.
“Skin revitalization with the PicoSure laser is a very effective way to reverse skin damage caused by aging, sun, acne, and habits like smoking,” said Jill Miller, M.D., Ink On Ink Off medical director. “The PicoSure laser takes non-invasive skin revitalization to a whole different level.”
According to Dr. Miller, PicoSure is a quick and easy non-surgical, non-invasive laser used to help people who want a smoother, more youthful appearance, or help with acne scarring, age spots, wrinkles and sun damage. Previous laser technology relied on intense heat energy, with patients reporting pain, redness and swelling. But Dr. Miller explained that the PicoSure laser takes a more gentle approach without the typical downtime or discomfort.
“One of the things I like best about PicoSure is that the results are consistent, and work on almost all skin types with faster results and less downtime,” Dr. Miller said. “I’m very pleased to be able to offer it to our clients.”
