Dr Johanna Youner is the one of the only doctors in New York City to offer PicoSure™, an unprecedented advancement in laser tattoo removal. The FDA-cleared PicoSure™, named for its picosecond laser technology, erases tattoos with far fewer treatment sessions and better results than previous laser treatments.
Tattoos that have been treated previously with Nd-Yag lasers but have failed to clear can even be removed. PicoSure’s patented PressureWave™ ultra-short pulse duration gently delivers laser energy to the tattoo ink in trillionths of a second, without causing injury to the surrounding skin. Previous nanosecond lasers work by breaking up the ink, but the PicoSure shatters the ink into even tinier particles, which are more easily eliminated by the body. Additionally, PicoSure has proven efficacy on dark, stubborn blue and green inks, which are more difficult to remove.
With the rising popularity of tattoos, there has been a parallel rise in the number of people who experience tattoo regret and wish to have their tattoos removed. Cynosure, developer of PicoSure, cites a Harris poll that estimates 20% of tattooed Americans – roughly 45 million people – experience “tattoo regret.” People decide to remove their tattoos because the designs are no longer relevant to their lifestyle, not just because of workplace dress code restrictions. Other personal motivations range from being tired of their limited clothing options to not wanting their children to see them.
Dr. Youner says. “With the PicoSure Laser, we’re taking a huge leap forward in accommodating patient requests for far faster, more efficient tattoo removal. After evaluating the treatment and clinical studies, I knew I had to make this technology available to my patients at Park Avenue Laser Treatment at 40 Park Avenue in NYC.
Dr. Johanna Youner of Park Avenue Laser Treatment, 212-683-7034, has trained in laser tattoo removal nationally and is passionately committed to providing the safest and latest techniques of non- and minimally invasive no-downtime laser, cosmetic and dermatological treatments, and helping patients look as good on the outside as they feel inside.
