With its precise targeting, minimized discomfort, and reduced risk of scarring, the PicoStar Laser makes the journey to ink-free skin smoother than ever before.

Ink Shattering

The gentle yet effective nature of the PicoStar Laser minimizes the risk of scarring, leaving your skin smooth and healthy after treatment.

Accelerated Results

Thanks to its advanced technology, the PicoStar Laser often requires fewer sessions than traditional methods, helping you achieve your desired results faster.

Treatment Process

What to Expect for a Laser Tattoo Removal

Expected Treatment Results

Following your initial treatment session, anticipate immediate changes such as initial fading or lightening of the tattoo, with full results developing over subsequent weeks as your body naturally eliminates fragmented ink particles. Multiple sessions, typically spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart, are often required for optimal results, tailored to factors like tattoo size, colour, and skin response. 

Before Treatment

At Le Prestige Medi Spa, our initial complimentary consultation begins with a thorough skin assessment of each client’s needs and concerns. During this consultation, our experienced medical aesthetician will discuss the client’s medical history, assess their skin type and condition, and address any questions or concerns they may have. This personalized approach ensures we tailor the skin resurfacing treatment to meet each client’s unique goals and requirements.

During Treatment

The skin resurfacing process using Acslepion’s Dermablate Erbium Laser involves several steps to ensure optimal results. We cleanse the skin thoroughly to remove makeup, oil, or debris. Then, the laser handpiece is carefully maneuvered over the treatment area, delivering precise pulses of laser energy to remove the outer layers of the skin gently. This process promotes collagen production, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improves skin texture and tone. Our skilled practitioners monitor the skin’s response throughout the treatment to ensure safety and efficacy.

After Treatment

Immediately following the Dermablate Erbium Laser treatment, clients may experience mild redness, swelling, and sensitivity in the treated area. However, these effects typically subside within a few days, revealing smoother, rejuvenated skin. Clients can expect initial skin texture and tone improvements, with continued enhancement over the following weeks as collagen production increases and the skin regenerates.

Treatment Aftercare

After your initial skin resurfacing session, follow-up treatments may be recommended to maintain and enhance your results over time. The frequency and number of follow-up sessions will depend on your individual treatment plan and desired outcomes. Our practitioners will work closely with you to develop a customized treatment schedule that aligns with your skincare goals.

Follow-up Treatment

Consistent follow-up sessions are essential for maintaining and maximizing the results of your microdermabrasion treatment over time. Our skincare professionals will advise you on scheduling regular appointments to support sustained improvements in skin health and appearance.
