Jason's Story of picosure lasEr tattoo removal at Uberskin

Jason McCabe

I'm Jason and married with 3 children. I am a full time martial arts coach, with a black belt in two martial arts (working on the third).

At the age of 18, I was a long haired rocker and decided to get some 'cool' ink. I made my choice of tattoo while under the influence of alcohol.

Now, as some of you may have found out, to your own detriment...... A face that looks pretty, intoxicated, can look radically different in the morning. Especially 23 years later, when your hairline has faded and your taste is more refined.

Did other people know about your tattoo or did you hide it?

I don't like it, so always keep it covered

What's your wife's opinion of your tattoo?

It's definitely not the reason she chose me

Why are you having your tattoo removed now?

Just years of being fed up looking at it and access to good treatment

Why did you choose UberSkin

The quality of the machine and the reputation they have

Before we got started

(Dr Lyners) After I took this picture and sent it to Jason, this was his reaction - "That's hideous" - He clearly didn't see what everyone else was seeing 😄

Patch test and treatment a few days later

How did it feel Jason?

It felt like having a tattoo, but less intense.

Did you cry, like your friends expected you to?

No. I am hard but I did get a lump in my throat

In all honesty it's not that painful

How did your skin respond to the treatment?

I've had 3 sessions. On two of the them there was a little blistering and scabbing but not that serious. On another session there was neither.

The area was a little itchy but I applied Vaseline which took away the itch. I was able to train pretty much straight afterwards (Brazilian jujitsu)

After 2 treatments with PicoSure

I just had my third session, so will update you on it

A week or so after the third session and the tattoo is well faded and some of the lighter strokes are gone already. I have found the it seems to fade in between the sessions as well.

I really can't recommend this service enough. Very professional and is working better than I had expected. I can't wait to see the end result

Will you recommend UberSkin to any one else?

I have done so already and will so again. I have spoken to a few people who had tattoo removals done and the results were nowhere near as good
