Solve the equation below please:


Dr. Cherup is the medical director for Invisible Ink
Laser Tattoo Removal

Unlike older lasers which deliver heat to the pigment and surrounding tissue, the newly FDA approved PicoSure laser uses PressureWave Technology to shatter the ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body. The result is clearer skin after fewer treatments without injuring the surrounding skin. It also allows for the removal of stubborn blue and green inks as well as previously-treated, difficult tattoos.
