PicoWay Laser Tattoo Removal
The PicoWay laser from Syneron Candela came hot on the heels of the revolutionary PicoSure laser by CynoSure. Both using the newest technology in pico-second photo-mechanical technology the PicoWay has expanded its range with multiple hand-pieces of different wavelengths, and is suitable for all skin types.
With the PicoWay like the PicoSure can remove a tattoo 8 times faster than the standard Q-switched tattoo removal lasers. Not only does the PicoWay remove tattoos within 4 -8 treatments, it also assists in removing the difficult colours, blue, greens and reds.
The PicoWay laser uses pico-second technology, pulses fired at a rate of one trillionth per second, 100 times faster than lasers running on older technology. This high-speed light hits the ink with great force, and breaks the ink into minute particles. These minute particles are much easier for your body to dispose of using its normal detoxification processes. Creating the fastest and most versatile laser yet.
Some benefits of the PicoWay laser:
- 4-8 treatments needed to fully remove a tattoo
- PicoWay takes 5- 12 months, a standard tattoo machines can take up to 2-3 years
- Removes difficult ink colours
- Suitable for all skin types
With the PicoWay there is no heating of surrounding tissue, this means the treatments are less painful, there is a faster recovery time, and so less of a gap required between treatments. There is also less chance for any complications such as scarring or hypopigmentation.
We can even use PicoWay to remove recalcitrant tattoos, recalcitrant tattoos are tattoos that still have clinically apparent pigment after 10 or more previous laser treatment sessions, these tattoos have stopped fading in response to treatment with other lasers. With the PicoWay even those last bits of stubborn ink can be treated.
