How can PicoSure achieve better clearance in 75% less time?
Whilst traditional laser tattoo removal often requires between 10 and 20 sessions to achieve good clearance, the PicoSure machine can remove your tattoo more completely in fewer sessions.
How is this possible? Traditional laser tattoo removal machines heat the ink in your tattoo breaking it into small ‘pieces’, but the patented PressureWave™ impact from the PicoSure laser shatters the ink into tiny particles – these are more easily disposed of by your body.
The illustration gives a simple view of how the PicoSure laser breaks down the ink in your tattoo into tiny particles. View our before and after picture gallery.
How many sessions using the PicoSure laser will I need?
Due to the unique way the PicoSure laser ‘shatters’ the ink on your skin, you’ll need fewer sessions. Traditional laser tattoo removal would take on average 10 – 20 sessions for a small professional tattoo (up to 5cm sq), whereas 4 – 6 sessions* using the PicoSure laser will be enough to remove your tattoo leaving behind almost no trace. So that’s less time in the clinic and the removal of your unwanted tattoo sooner!
It is recommended that you wait a minimum of 6 weeks between sessions to allow the treated area to heal. To help speed up your recovery and improve the overall results we advise you to follow our laser tattoo removal before and after care instructions.
*Results may vary from person to person.
How much does PicoSure cost?
This is dependent on two key aspects – the size of your tattoo and the type of tattoo. A larger professional tattoo will require more sessions than a smaller amateur tattoo, and the sessions will last longer too. A typical small tattoo, 5cm x 5cm, will take around 4 – 6 sessions to remove and cost around £1280 – £1600 in total. View our pricing guide below.
|Tattoo Size||Cost per session|
|Very Small (up to 2.5 cm sq)||£180|
|Small (up to 5cm sq)||£320|
|Medium (up to 10cm sq)||£500|
|Large (up to 15cm sq)||£800|
|Very Large (greater than 15cm sq)||Price on request|
Consultations require a £50 deposit, which is deducted from any future treatments. 48 hour notice is required to move or cancel an appointment or the deposit is forfeited at our discretion.

Tattoo size guide
We created this tattoo size guide to help give you an idea of what size classification your tattoo falls under. Unlike other clinics we are very flexible and always look closely at the size, shape, design and density of each tattoo to give a personalised and accurate price. If your tattoo has gaps in the design, we take this into consideration and adjust the price accordingly.
If you are unsure of your tattoo size then please don’t hesitate to send us a picture via our contact form and we’ll get back to you with an accurate price.
