What is PicoWay® Tattoo Removal?
In the past, laser tattoo removal treatments have caused patients extreme pain while still not being able to entirely remove the pigmentation of a tattoo. These treatments have also caused permanent pigmentation problems in individuals with darker skin tones.
The PicoWay® laser is a new way to remove tattoos that requires significantly less downtime or discomfort than traditional laser tattoo removal procedures. It is safer because it uses quick, intense bursts of laser energy, rather than less powerful, sustained exposure to laser energy.
How Does it Work?
When a person gets a tattoo, different pigments of colors are injected into their skin with a tattoo gun. Because these pigments are injected deep into the skin, they are permanent unless treated.
During a PicoWay® tattoo removal treatment, intense laser energy is focused at the tattoo in a series of bursts. These bursts are incredibly quick, each lasting for a matter of picoseconds, each equal to one trillionth of a second. These quick bursts produce a photo-acoustic effect, targeting the pigmentation below the skin with both light and sound energy. This energy slowly breaks up the pigmentation, affecting even the smallest bits of it.
After the laser energy has loosened and removed a good portion of this pigment, the rest of it is eliminated from the body by macrophages over time. Most patients need only four to six treatments to remove a professional tattoo, significantly less than are required during a traditional laser tattoo removal procedure.
Am I a Candidate?
Nearly anyone interested in removing a tattoo quickly and completely is a potential candidate for a PicoWay® tattoo removal procedure. This treatment is safe for patients of all skin types and ethnicities.
