If you want to get rid of your tattoo, you are in luck. PicoWay® is an advanced laser tattoo removal treatment that could work for you. When used for tattoo removal, PicoWay® overcomes several limitations of traditional laser tattoo removal treatments.
Traditional lasers are limited to specific tattoo colors and types. In some cases, they do not effectively break up the ink particles, and there is usually discomfort during the treatment. In addition, darker skin tones are more at risk of hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation from a traditional laser.
PicoWay® is an FDA-approved treatment for a wide range of tattoos. For a variety of skin types, it offers better results with fewer and faster treatments. The high-power energy PicoWay® delivers enables the treatment to go much faster, and it shatters the ink into micro-particles, making it easier for the body to eliminate them. Since the bursts of light are ultra-short, the skin receives the least amount of heat. This means less discomfort for the patient.
There are several reasons why tattoos are difficult to remove with traditional tattoo removal. The ink is injected deep into the dermis, which makes it harder to reach. Ink is made up of particles and the larger the particles, the more difficult they are to break. They need to be broken down into micro pieces so the body can naturally eliminate them.
With traditional lasers, black and dark blue ink is the easiest to remove because it absorbs all light wavelengths. Red, green and yellow ink is more difficult to remove with traditional laser techniques. The reason darker skin tones are harder to treat is that the pigments in the skin also absorb the laser energy and can become burned. All of these problems are solved with PicoWay®. Since it emits less heat, there is less chance for any skin tone to be injured.
All laser tattoo removal techniques require a series of treatment sessions for optimum results. The number of treatments needed depends on the color of ink, how long the person had the tattoo, whether it was done by a professional or an amateur, the size of the tattoo and location on the body.
