How can PicoSure achieve better clearance with fewer treatments?
Traditional lasers such as the Q-Switched often need over 10 treatments to achieve good clearance. Whereas the picosecond laser used by the PicoSure machine can remove your tattoo more completely in fewer treatments
How is this possible? Traditional Q-Switched lasers heat the ink in your tattoo breaking it into small ‘pieces’, but the patented PressureWave™ impact from the picosecond laser delivers ultra-short pulses of energy to the skin shattering the ink into tiny particles. These tiny particles are disposed of by your body’s immune system much easier.
The illustration gives a simple view of how PicoSure breaks down the ink in your tattoo into tiny particles. View our before and after picture gallery here.
How many treatments using the PicoSure laser will I need?
We’ve treated thousands of clients with our PicoSure laser and Q-Switched RevLite laser and have found that the RevLite laser on average would take 10 – 15 treatments for a small professional tattoo (up to 5cm sq). In contrast, just 4 – 6 treatments* with the PicoSure will achieve better tattoo clearance. So that’s less time in the clinic and the removal of your unwanted tattoo sooner!
Studies have found similar results with the Q-Switched alexandrite laser taking an average of 8.9 and 8.5 treatments to obtain greater than 95% clearance in tattoo pigment. Whereas another study with the picosecond alexandrite laser found an average of 4.25 treatment sessions were needed.
*Results may vary from person to person. Many factors affect the number of treatments needed.
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 need more treatments than a smaller amateur tattoo, and the treatments will last longer too. A typical small tattoo, 5cm x 5cm, will take around 4 – 6 treatments to remove and cost around £1280 – £1600 in total. View our pricing guide below.
|Tattoo Size||Cost per treatment|
|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. 2 working days 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 flexible and always look 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.

What our clients say…
“Amazing service! I live abroad and got in touch with Gemma at the clinic and was booked on for a PicoSure tattoo removal! Such a great treatment, so quick and the staff were fab! Very informative and excellent aftercare too!! Highly recommended! Thanks so much!”*
“Andrea is such a lovely woman, very professional and makes you feel welcome for the first instance. Andrea’s excellent knowledge makes you know you’ve come to the right place and I will definitely be making a 2nd appointment! I can’t wait to see the results from the PicoSure Laser! THANKS”*
“I have had 2 treatments so far with the Picosure laser and found the results to be amazing. My black ink tattoo has faded rapidly. I have a few more treatments left to go and then hopefully my removal will be complete. The service and advice I have so far received from Andrea, has been excellent and I would have no hesitation recommending Andrea Catton Laser Clinic.”*
“Friendly professional service with a smile 🙂 Saw result straight away with the PicoSure laser method and am hopeful that it will continue to fade over the next few weeks. Would recommend.”*
“Great place and lovely friendly service from Andrea and Gemma. Get yourself booked in. I’ve already seen my tattoo fade lots after one picosure removal treatment. 2nd one done. Tattoo be gone! Thanks Andrea”*
