What is the Discovery laser tattoo removal method?

The Discovery is a breakthrough in laser technology. Classified as a picosecond laser, the Discovery transcends conventional picosecond lasers by combining the highest power possible with more wavelengths and treatment modes. This makes the Discovery highly effective for a range of skin issues and skin types.

Most notably, the Discovery can break down the most difficult to treat tattoo colors and pigmentations given its power, precision, and unique design. Better outcomes are achieved in fewer, more comfortable treatment cycles.

How does the Discovery break down pigment so effectively?

If you think of a pigmentation or tattoo like a boulder, the Discovery uses one emission mode to initially break down the boulder into large pebbles and then a pico-second mode breaks those particles into even finer particles until the entire boulder is nothing but dust.

The Discovery is also unique because it’s the only picosecond laser with three true laser wavelengths, which allows it to eliminate the full spectrum of tattoo colors.

Will my Discovery treatment be painful?

The Discovery power settings and handpieces were designed to maximize comfort and to reduce side effects and healing time. The laser treats the skin across any pigment or tattoo shape evenly and precisely so the skin can heal naturally and effectively.

How many treatment sessions will I need?

The number of treatments needed depends on each patient case but the Discovery laser can ultimately reduce the number of sessions required to achieve the desired outcome.

Who is a good candidate?

The Discovery is safe for all skin types. The larger spot sizes and ability to treat all tattoo colors — including notoriously difficult to remove light blue and green pigments — makes it especially effective for tattoo removal.

My experience with Dr. Poulos was awesome. I felt totally comfortable with her after the first 5 minutes of meeting her. She does not rush through your consultation, giving you time to discuss your procedure and expected outcome. I found her to be very honest, ethical and trustworthy. I also have nothing but praise for her staff whose enthusiasm and knowledge is impressive. I am over the moon with my results and have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Poulos to anyone.

What will my recovery be like?

Some minor swelling, redness or blistering is common in the first few hours after laser tattoo removal. Flaking and scabbing will follow for a few weeks.

You should take care to avoid direct contact with the sun, and avoid spas and pools. Dr. Poulos will provide a full aftercare plan for you to follow.

What Else Can the Discovery Laser Do for My Skin?

Beyond tattoo removal, the Discovery Pico laser can effectively treat a variety of skin concerns, including acne scars and pockmarks, freckles, sun spots, discoloration.

The picosecond laser does not remove parts of the skin as other lasers do. This achieves an added benefit of a shorter, less painful healing process. The Discovery Pico laser uses revolutionary technology to trigger the production of new skin cells. As new skin cells form, acne scars, pigmentation concerns, age spots and wrinkles are reduced as the damaged tissues are naturally replaced with fresh, healthy skin. 

The Pico Discovery laser tool to smooth wrinkles redistributes the picosecond beam into hundreds of microbeams to smooth the skin. It deeply stimulates the production of collagen and creates microscopic holes in the skin that allow us to more deeply apply cosmeceuticals, vitamins, growth factors or other topical compounds.
