Laser Tattoo Removal
What Is PicoWay®?
PicoWay® is an advanced ultra-short, picosecond, laser treatment for acne scars, wrinkles, dark spots (also known as pigmentation or benign pigmented lesions) and tattoo removal that can transform your skin. Because PicoWay uses a photoacoustic effect that reaches under the top layer of skin, rather than working by heating the skin, PicoWay, patients have low to no downtime after treatment.
PicoWay is a high power lower with ultra short pulses that shatters tattoo ink, but leaves the outer layer of the skin intact. PicoWay treats a broad range of tattoo colors and across a broad range of skin types and colors. Over a series of brief treatments, PicoWay can eliminate most tattoos. That’s why PicoWay is the tattoo removal laser of choice by the nation’s leading tattoo removal provider network, Invisible Ink Tattoo Removers.
How PicoWay Works?
PicoWay is a picosecond laser that uses a high power laser beam with ultra-short pulses to transform skin. The ultra-short pulses avoid heating the skin. The laser reaches under the skin for its impact, but leaves the outer layer of the skin intact. This process is called sub-surface ablation.
The PicoWay® laser has the shortest pulses of any picosecond laser available today.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
For some conditions, results with the PicoWay laser are visible after the first treatment. With others, a series of brief 15-20 minute laser tattoo removal treatments may be needed.
What Will I Expect?
1. Before the laser tattoo removal procedure, a numbing agent is applied to the target area. (Note the tattoo ink prior to the PicoWay treatment)
2. During the treatment, the PicoWay® handpiece delivers energy with an extremely precise, high-power laser in extremely short pulses to target ink particles with great impact.
3. These pulses shatter the tattoo ink into minuscule particles. Following the treatment, most of the ink particles are removed by the body.
