"With the PicoSure, gone are the concerns we used to have when removing tattoos...The future is here."
Oak Brook, Illinois (PRWEB) June 21, 2013
Dr. Leon Forrester Tcheupdjian, M.D., of the Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute, and his associates are proud to announce that they are one of the first practices in the United States to offer PicoSure, the world’s only picosecond aesthetic laser for tattoo removal. The PicoSure offers an unprecedented advancement in laser tattoo removal technology.
With the PicoSure, laser tattoo removal patients can expect effective tattoo removal treatments with fewer total treatments. Where traditional, nanosecond tattoo removal lasers fall short, the PicoSure shines because of its picosecond (trillionth of a second, 100 times that of a nanosecond laser) technology.
Historically, laser tattoo removal patients had to endure long, drawn out treatment programs with little visible difference between treatments. With the PicoSure, these patients can expect their treatment programs to be virtually cut in half, with highly visible, extreme results after each treatment.
This picosecond technology also easily removes blue and green inks, which were once considered the toughest colors to remove with the traditional nanosecond technology.
“With the PicoSure, gone are the concerns we used to have when removing tattoos with lasers,” said Dr. Tcheupdjian. “It doesn’t matter where the tattoo is, what color it is, how old it is, we’re confident we can remove it under nearly any circumstance, quicker than we could before, with this 21st century technology. The future is here.”
The PicoSure laser utilizes a patented PressureWave™ technology that delivers ultra-short photomechanical pulses of energy to the tattoo ink in trillionths of a second without damaging the surrounding skin and tissue. This process obliterates the ink into tiny particles, which are then naturally flushed out through the body.
Nanosecond tattoo removal lasers, which have dominated the market for the last decade, simply don’t have the technological prowess to reduce the tattoo ink into similarly tiny particles. Thus, removing a tattoo with the nanosecond laser requires significantly more treatments.
When choosing the right treatment plan, Dr. Tcheupdjian urges his patients to consider all aspects of the treatment, not simply the per treatment price.
“When you consider the time and money spent on going to and from your doctor’s office, waiting in the waiting room, waiting in the chair for the doctor, then finally the cost of each treatment, let alone doing it twice as many times or more, removing your tattoo with the PicoSure is, without question, the best option, both from a financial and a time standpoint,” said Dr. Tcheupdjian.
Patients who have already started the tattoo removal process with a nanosecond tattoo removal laser can switch over to the PicoSure at any time and expect quicker, more dramatic results.
The PicoSure also effectively treats benign pigmented lesions such as brown spots, sun spots, age spots and freckles.
The Liposuction and Cosmetic Surgery Institute boasts four Chicagoland locations in Chicago’s Gold Coast, Oak Brook, Arlington Heights and Naperville. Dr. Leon Forrester Tcheupdjian, M.D., along with associates, Dr. David Ross, M.D., Dr. Roman Voytsekhovskiy, M.D., Dr. Algird Mameniskis, M.D., Dr. Michael Damen, M.D. and Leslie Forrester, R.N., B.S.N. boast more than a century of combined experience in the cosmetic surgery and medicine field.
