The PicoWay Laser is an FDA-approved, aesthetic laser. It utilizes picosecond wavelengths that can shatter tattoo ink from inside of the skin. The PicoWay is unique because it uses ultra-short laser pulse durations to produce photoacoustic (sonic) energy instead of photothermal (heat) energy to break up the pigment. That means patients experience minimal discomfort and enjoy a speedier recovery time than with other removal methods. Patients will also benefit from superior results in fewer sessions.
PicoWay’s technology utilizes a picosecond laser pulse for optimum results with fewer side effects. So exactly how short is a picosecond? It is one-trillionth of a second—too short to imagine easily. The laser also offers three different wavelengths. Your healthcare provider can target the corresponding pigments in your tattoo using the most effective wavelength.
The PicoWay ultra-short aesthetic laser creates a photoacoustic effect rather than the photothermal effect of other dated, less effective tattoo removal devices. That allows the laser to penetrate deep into the dermis, where the pigment resides. Inside the dermis, PicoWave Technology breaks up the tattoo ink into minuscule particles that your body can then effortlessly eliminate through your lymphatic system.
The tattoo is then eliminated in fewer treatment sessions and with much less discomfort than with other methods, with the bonus of very little downtime.
• Clinical research data has proven that PicoWay produces better tattoo removal results with fewer treatment sessions than other methods.
• Certain vibrant colors of tattoo ink—such as hues of blue, green, and purple that remain notoriously difficult to remove— are able to be reduced with the PicoWay laser can reduce in addition to removing traditional black ink.
• PicoWay can also address recalcitrant tattoos (tattoos that have been previously treated ten or more times with no visible results).
• The PicoWay laser system’s picosecond pulses first explode dermal cells that have tattoo pigment in them. Then, this photoacoustic effect shatters the ink particles into smaller particles to reduce the body’s time to clearance, greatly reducing downtime and the number of sessions.
• PicoWay is the most effective tattoo removal treatment option on the market today and removes more ink with each session so that you get rid of your unwanted tattoo much faster.
• The PicoWay laser safely eradicates a broad range of ink colors across a wide range of skin types. A series of PicoWay laser treatments can eliminate most tattoos.
Sometimes, a tattoo does not turn out the way you envisioned. Other times, a tattoo that suited you well in the past no longer pleases you 10 (or more) years later. Thankfully, what was once permanent no longer has to be with the help of PicoWay.
Tattoo removal varies from client to client because each person’s skin and tattoo in question remain unique. However, studies have shown that the Picosecond Technology effectively targets stubborn pigments and is suitable for all skin types and shades. As such, the PicoWay laser is the current gold standard for tattoo removal, making it an excellent choice for anyone looking for tattoo removal.
It is impossible to predict precisely how many PicoWay laser treatments it will take to remove a tattoo. The number of treatments required depends upon the size, color, and location of the tattoo. Another determining factor is whether the tattoo has been touched up with additional ink.
PicoWay also works on recalcitrant tattoos that have been treated with Q-switched nanosecond lasers (prior generation tattoo removal lasers) ten times or more with little to no visible difference can benefit from PicoWay tattoo removal. With PicoWay, many stubborn tattoos can be effectively removed in as few as 10 to 12 sessions. As PicoWay treatments are minimally damaging to the surrounding tissues, treatment sessions can be scheduled six to eight weeks apart for faster results.
