PicoFractional Laser Tattoo Removal in Nairobi, Kenya

PicoFractional laser technology is often employed in tattoo removal procedures. The combination of picosecond pulse durations and fractional laser technology can be advantageous for tattoo removal compared to traditional methods


PicoFractional Laser Tattoo Removal

PicoFractional Laser Tattoo Removal Process

The PicoFractional laser tattoo removal process involves a series of steps designed to break down tattoo ink particles and allow the body to eliminate them naturally. Here is a general outline of what the process might entail:

  • Consultation:
    – Before undergoing PicoFractional laser tattoo removal, you’ll typically have a consultation,  Rebel Inks Tattoos, Tattoo Removal, and Body Piercings we have a team of expert laser specialists that will guide you through the process.
    – During this consultation, your skin type, tattoo characteristics, medical history, and expectations will be assessed.
    – Your practitioner will explain the procedure, discuss potential outcomes, and provide information about the number of sessions required.
  • Preparation: On the day of the procedure, the area to be treated will be cleaned, and a topical anesthetic may be applied to minimize discomfort during the procedure.
  • Protective Measures: Eye protection for both you and the practitioner is crucial to shield the eyes from the laser light.
  • Laser Treatment:
    – The PicoFractional laser is then used to deliver ultra-short pulses of energy to the tattooed area.
    – The picosecond pulses break down the tattoo ink into smaller particles, and the fractional aspect of the laser targets only a fraction of the skin at a time.
  • Healing Response:
    – The laser induces a controlled injury to the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing response.
    – Fractional technology minimizes damage to the surrounding skin, promoting faster healing.
  • Post-Treatment Care:
    – After the procedure, the treated area may be covered with a dressing or ointment to aid in the healing process.
    – It’s common to experience redness, swelling, and mild discomfort, but these symptoms are usually temporary.
  • Recovery:
    – The recovery time after PicoFractional laser tattoo removal is typically shorter compared to traditional laser treatments.
    – Multiple sessions, spaced several weeks apart, are usually required for optimal results.
  • Follow-Up Sessions:
    – The number of sessions needed depends on factors such as the size and color of the tattoo, as well as individual skin characteristics.
    – Follow-up sessions are scheduled based on the progress observed during the healing process.
  • Post-Treatment Care Instructions: You will be provided with post-treatment care instructions, including avoiding sun exposure, refraining from picking at scabs, and using recommended skincare products.

PicoFractional Laser Tattoo Removal Mechanism

The mechanism of PicoFractional laser tattoo removal involves the use of a laser system that combines picosecond pulse durations with fractional laser technology. This advanced approach is designed to break down tattoo ink particles more efficiently and promote faster healing compared to traditional tattoo removal methods. Here’s a breakdown of the key components of the mechanism:

  • Picosecond Pulse Duration:
    – The term “picosecond” refers to one trillionth of a second. PicoFractional lasers deliver laser pulses with extremely short durations in the picosecond range.
    – The ultra-short pulses of the laser target the tattoo ink particles with high energy in a very brief time frame.
    – The rapid delivery of energy in picoseconds helps to fragment the ink into smaller particles.
  • Fractional Laser Technology:
    – Fractional laser technology involves treating only a fraction of the skin at a time, leaving surrounding tissue untouched.
    – Instead of treating the entire surface area of the tattoo in one go, the laser creates microscopic channels or “fractional” injuries in the skin.
    – This fractional approach promotes faster healing, as the untreated areas between the treated spots aid in the recovery process.
  • Stimulation of Collagen and Healing Response:
    – The laser-induced fractional injuries stimulate the production of collagen, a protein that plays a key role in skin structure and healing.
    – The controlled injury triggers the body’s natural healing response, leading to the removal of the fragmented ink particles over time.
  • Minimized Downtime and Side Effects:
    – The combination of picosecond pulse durations and fractional laser technology is designed to minimize downtime and reduce side effects.
    – The fractional approach allows for quicker recovery, as only a fraction of the skin is affected during each treatment.
  • Multiple Sessions:
    – Complete tattoo removal usually requires multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart.
    – Each session builds on the progress made in previous treatments, gradually fading the tattoo over time.

Success of PicoFractional laser tattoo removal depends on various factors, including the type of tattoo, ink colors, skin type, and individual response to the treatment. At Rebel Inks Tattoos, Tattoo Removal, and Body Piercings the procedure is performed by a qualified and experienced laser specialist who can tailor the treatment plan to the specific needs and characteristics of an individual.


PicoFractional Laser Tattoo Removal Aftercare

After undergoing PicoFractional laser tattoo removal, proper aftercare is crucial to ensure optimal healing and reduce the risk of complications. The specific aftercare instructions may vary slightly depending on the individual characteristics of the treated area, but here are some general guidelines:

  • Keep the Area Clean: Gently clean the treated area with mild soap and water. Avoid using harsh or abrasive cleansers.
  • Apply Topical Ointment: Your practitioner may recommend applying a prescribed or over-the-counter ointment to the treated area. This helps soothe the skin and promote healing.
  • Avoid Sun Exposure: Protect the treated area from direct sunlight and UV exposure. Sunscreen with a high SPF should be applied if sun exposure is unavoidable.
  • Skip Hot Baths and Saunas: Avoid hot baths, saunas, and hot tubs for a few days after the treatment, as heat can exacerbate swelling and discomfort.
  • Do Not Pick at Scabs: It’s common for the treated area to develop scabs as part of the healing process. Resist the urge to pick at them, as this can increase the risk of infection and scarring.
  • Avoid Scrubbing: Refrain from scrubbing or exfoliating the treated area until it has fully healed. Gentle care is essential during the initial recovery period.
  • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, which can aid in the healing process.
  • Use Cold Compresses: If you experience swelling or discomfort, you may apply cold compresses to the treated area. Avoid applying ice directly to the skin; instead, use a cloth or towel.
  • Follow Up as Advised: Attend any scheduled follow-up appointments as recommended by your practitioner. They can assess the healing progress and make any necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.
  • Avoid Strenuous Activities: Limit strenuous physical activities that may cause excessive sweating or friction on the treated area.
  • Wear Loose Clothing: If the treated area is on a body part that can be covered, wearing loose clothing can help minimize irritation.
  • Moisturize: At Rebel Inks Tattoos, Tattoo Removal, and Body Piercings our practitioners may recommend a specific moisturizer to keep the skin hydrated. Follow their guidance on when and how to apply it.

At Rebel Inks Tattoos, Tattoo Removal, and Body Piercings we recommend communicating with your practitioner if you experience any unusual or severe symptoms during the healing process. Adhering to the aftercare instructions will contribute to a smoother recovery and enhance the overall effectiveness of the PicoFractional laser tattoo removal treatment.

Advantages of PicoFractional Laser Tattoo Removal

PicoFractional laser tattoo removal offers several advantages compared to traditional tattoo removal methods. Here are some of the key benefits associated with this advanced laser technology:

  • Faster Treatment Times: PicoFractional lasers utilize ultra-short pulses in the picosecond range, allowing for faster and more efficient treatment compared to traditional nanosecond lasers.
  • Reduced Treatment Sessions: The shorter pulse durations and improved efficacy of PicoFractional lasers may require fewer treatment sessions compared to traditional lasers, leading to quicker results.
  • Enhanced Precision: PicoFractional lasers offer enhanced precision in targeting tattoo ink particles. The shorter pulses can selectively break down the ink without causing excessive damage to the surrounding skin.
  • Versatility for Different Colors: PicoFractional lasers are effective in targeting a broad spectrum of tattoo colors, including challenging colors like green and blue. This makes them versatile for treating tattoos with various ink pigments.
  • Minimized Side Effects: The fractional technology minimizes damage to the surrounding skin, reducing the risk of side effects such as scarring and changes in pigmentation. Patients typically experience less downtime and a faster recovery period.
  • Stimulation of Collagen Production: The fractional aspect of the laser treatment stimulates the production of collagen, promoting skin rejuvenation and contributing to a smoother skin texture.
  • Reduced Pain and Discomfort: PicoFractional lasers may be associated with less pain and discomfort during and after the procedure, thanks to their shorter pulse durations and the fractional approach.
  • Effective for Stubborn Tattoos: PicoFractional lasers are often more effective in removing stubborn tattoos that may not respond well to other laser treatments.
  • Customizable Treatment Plans: Rebel Inks Tattoos, Tattoo Removal, and Body Piercings we can customize PicoFractional laser treatments to suit your individual characteristics of the tattoo and your skin, optimizing the chances of successful removal.
  • Quicker Recovery Time: The fractional approach allows for quicker recovery, with less swelling and redness compared to traditional laser treatments.
  • Improved Patient Satisfaction: Due to the enhanced efficiency and reduced side effects, patients often report higher satisfaction levels with PicoFractional laser tattoo removal compared to other methods.

I cannot say enough about Eric and the experience he gave me. First of all, he fit me in when I was running short on time and helped me to find his shop. I just wanted a meaningful word tattooed and promised it would be small and quick. When I didn't love the fonts we came across, he free-handed a stunning font. He made sure the placement was perfect and checked in with me and we decided to just leave it as the outline without filling it all in and even with the change of plans the line work was perfection. Eric also charged me half of what I was quoted several other places even after he drew the design himself on the spot. It was the best overall experience I've had in a tattoo shop. I cannot speak highly enough of Eric's care for clients, artistic skill, or fairness in operating his business.

Me and my 3 friends all got ear piercings. Two of us got the conch, one got the upper cartilage, the other got her second holes. He was very professional, clean, accurate, and caring. All 4 of our piercings have healed great and he has been so kind to reach out and care about the aftercare of our piercings. If I lived in Nairobi, I would get all my piercings here! 100% would recommend him to anyone. The titanium jewelry is great quality as well.

My experience at Rebel Inks was exceptional. It was my first time getting a piercing, and I was understandably nervous. However, Eric, the piercer, was reassuring and professional. He explained the earlobe piercing process in detail and answered all of my questions before beginning.I was particularly impressed with Eric's attention to hygiene. He thoroughly cleaned the room before I entered, sanitized all of the equipment he would be using, and changed gloves between each ear. This level of cleanliness gave me great confidence in his professionalism.Eric's commitment to customer service did not end on the day of the piercing. He followed up with me regularly throughout the healing process to ensure that I was following the aftercare instructions and that my earlobes were healing properly.I highly recommend Rebel Inks to anyone in Nairobi who is considering getting a piercing. Eric is a highly skilled and experienced piercer who takes great pride in his work.

I got my belly button piercing from Eric. I have had 2 piercings done before and I've never received service as good as his. He explained the piercing and after care processes in detail and was very patient with my many questions...I'm considering paying him school fees 😂. His hygiene standards are very high and he used a disposable sterilized needle. He followed up on my healing progress weekly...I felt like we were healing together 😅. I wish it was possible to give 10 stars. I'm definitely having my future piercings done with him and I'm recommending him to all my friends 😃

Got my upper ear piercing done and my experience was fabulous. I highly appreciate the professionalism shown by Eric. He made sure I was made aware of the process before he started the work. He also explained me the healing process and the complications which was actually great to know as most places do not care to talk about the work in so much detail.The place is neat and clean and the equipments he used were also fine standards. Really appreciate his following up with me on the healing 🤗

I first went through their website to engage more on their services. I was particularly interested in the nose ring service. The communication from the day I made an appointment was very professional as well as the services offered. Eric explained in great detail the step by step procedure and was very patient with our questions. He administered effective hygiene and even let my friend record a video of the procedure. The after care followup is also great as Eric keeps checking up on the healing process on a weekly basis as well as giving additional guidance on the after care.I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEIR SERVICES to everyone. Actually what you see on their website is EXACTLY what you will get. Keep up the good work Rebel inks Tattoos.

I went to Eric for the first time to get help with an earring infection I couldn’t get rid of for months. I quickly got an appointment. He took time to listen to my concerns and previous treatments. He then recommended we try a different approach, changing the piercing and treating it as it was fresh. He gave great advise on how to clean and which care products to use. Throughout the whole session he was very friendly, considerate and knowledgeable. The weeks after he was checking in on how the piercing was doing.The infection is now gone. I would definitely recommend!

I would definitely refer anyone looking for to get a piercing, tattoo or tattoo removal here!
