PicoWay was first introduced in 2014, and it has quickly become a leader in tattoo removal. Find out what makes this tattoo removal system stand out from other options!
Leaving Competition Behind
Before PicoWay, the most popular choice for tattoo removal was the q-switched laser, which delivers laser pulses in nanoseconds—one-billionth of a second. This method can be painful, often requires a dozen treatments over a course of years and does not clear the tattoo as effectively as PicoWay.
The makers of PicoWay have conducted exhaustive studies to determine the effectiveness of this revolutionary technology. The result? These doctors found that 86% of patients achieved 50% tattoo clearance after three treatments, and reported low levels of discomfort during the procedures. Generally, tattoos treated with PicoWay required about half as many treatment sessions as the older q-switched laser. In some cases, it even removed a tattoo in a single treatment!
Brief Is Better
PicoWay’s laser pulses are not just short—they’re the shortest on the market! The laser pulses are delivered in picoseconds—one-trillionth of a second! What difference does that make? Removing tattoos with longer pulses, such as those used in q-switched lasers or intense pulsed light, heats up the surrounding areas along with the ink particle. This can cause greater discomfort and increase the risk of burns, blisters and scarring. The shorter pulses delivered by PicoWay heat the tattoo ink so fast that it shatters more easily, reducing discomfort and side effects. The PicoWay system is also better at breaking up resistant tattoos when other removal techniques have failed.
After a PicoWay session, your to-do list is simple and easy! In fact, having a tattoo removed with PicoWay is very similar to getting the tattoo in the first place. You may experience some redness and irritation for a few days afterwards. Normally, all you need is some petroleum jelly on the treatment area and a bandage. You should also protect the treated skin from the sun—which you should be doing every day anyway!
