What is it?
Picoway is revolutionary dual wavelength picosecond laser. It works on tattoos and pigmented lesions. This laser delivers ultrashort picosecond pulses of energy to the recipient tissue. The energy breaks up the tattoo particles into minute pieces that your body naturally clears.
Why Picoway instead of Picosure or older technology?
Picoway has the highest power and shortest pulse duration of the available lasers. This means it will be more efficient, comfortable and safe in treating your tattoo. Less treatment sessions are needed and there is less pain vs. traditional lasers. Because it has dual wavelengths it can treat multicolored tattoos. Also, tattoo removal is more complete.
Does it hurt?
Most patients report that it’s not as bad as getting the tattoo in the first place. It feels something like a rubberband snapping against your skin.
How many sessions will it take? How much does it cost?
We can never say for sure, but we estimate an average of 4-6 treatments for most tattoos. Consultations are complimentary. After examining you we can give you an exact cost per session.
