What does PicoSure® laser tattoo removal feel like?
The new PicoSure® laser is less uncomfortable than conventional Q-switched lasers however the laser light pulses produced by the PicoSure laser may feel similar to being flicked by a rubber band. Most people do not require anaesthesia, but local anaesthetic is available for those who find laser tattoo removal treatment uncomfortable. Topical creams rarely achieve significant pain relief.
Tattoo Laser Dermatology is now able to offer stronger pain relief with the use of a medical-grade inhaled analgesic agent. This is the same pain-relief medicine used by the Metropolitan Ambulance Service. It is particularly useful when treating large tattoos.
