Our Pico lasers are available in our London Harley Street and Esher High Street, Surrey clinics.


A Pico laser is a new generation of aesthetic laser that doesn’t rely solely on the use of heat to remove tattoo ink. Instead it uses patented short-pulse laser technology (one trillionth of a second in length) to deliver energy to the area very quickly, shattering the ink into very tiny particles and allowing it to be easily disposed of by the body. The smaller the particles, the easier it is to remove them from the body through your lymphatic system.

Pico Laser Treatment FAQs

​Is Pico the right tattoo removal method for me?

Pico is able to treat most colours of tattoo ink on all skin-types, but your practitioner will be able to determine whether it is the most suitable solution for your needs. 

Sun exposure can increase the chance of post treatment complications. Therefore, sun exposure and tanning beds must be avoided for 6 weeks pre-treatment. Fake tan must be avoided for 2 weeks pre-treatment, and must be completely removed from the skin before treatment can commence.

Why is Pico more expensive than other tattoo removal laser treatments?

It is our most premium laser tattoo removal system with the fastest results and therefore has a higher price point than our other expert laser treatments. At sk:n, we are renowned for our state-of-the-art laser technology and clinical expertise, so we will be able to find the right solution for you.

How many sessions of treatment will i need?

The length of the procedure is determined by a number of things, including the size, colour and age of your tattoo.  A member of the sk:n team will assess your tattoo through a one-to-one consultation prior to beginning the treatment. This will allow them to determine how many treatments you are likely to need and whether this is the right tattoo removal solution for you.

Who carries out the treatment?

Delivered by experts, under strict medical protocols in clinical environment our highly trained sk:n practitioners carry out this treatment. However, if the tattoo is on the face/ neck this treatment may be carried out under the supervision of a doctor or a nurse.

What is the recovery time after pico laser treatment?

You should leave a minimum of 4-12 weeks between Pico laser tattoo removal sessions. Your practitioner will be able to give you more information on your particular case.
