What is Laser Tattoo Removal?

Laser tattoo removal works by targeting the ink in a tattoo with the correct wavelength. The ink absorbs the heat from the laser, causing it to overheat and break into sand-like particles. Our white blood cells remove the debris from the broken ink as waste when the ink molecules become small enough to fit in the bloodstream.

The PicoSure laser & PicoWay laser are a breakthrough in tattoo removal laser technology, rapidly speeding up the removal process compared to Nano Q-switch machines.

Why Choose PicoWay Tattoo Removal?

The advanced Pico laser delivers high peak power with ultrashort pulse durations utilising photoacoustic technology. Heat delivery targets the ink pigment only, limiting shockwaves to surrounding healthy cells in the treatment area. This treatment method speeds up the ink removal following each Pico treatment and the skin’s recovery time compared with other Nanosecond lasers.

The ultra-short and ultra-fast pulses from the PicoWay mean a faster, more effective, and less painful treatment. PicoWay lasers are delivered with cryo-cooling technology, making for a more comfortable treatment and reducing side effects. Continuous cryo-cooling is a far less painful alternative to applying ice packs during laser tattoo removal.

PicoWay from Candela is FDA and CE-cleared on a wide range of tattoo colours, meaning it has been approved and heavily tested for safety on all skin types. Read about the advantages of PicoWay in Candela’s aesthetic blog.

Can PicoWay Remove Green and Blue Ink?

PicoWay can remove these colours with a 730 nm and 785 nm handpiece, which we also have at the clinic. However, we have a massive advantage at Pulse Light Clinic with the PicoSure & PicoSure Pro lasers; we generally opt for these when removing green and blue ink. The PicoSure laser’s 755 nm tattoo removal system tends to be faster and more efficient on blue and green ink on caucasian skin types. 

Red, Orange and Yellow Ink Gone in as Little as One Session

Historically, Red, Orange and Yellow were the most challenging colours of inks to remove. The advancements in Picosecond laser tattoo removal systems have introduced a more effective version of the 532 nm wavelength. Perfect for removing red-based colours, this short wavelength, although more aggressive than its counterparts, can remove red ink in as little as a single session!* However, it tends to blister more, so treatment is typically only performed once the surrounding ink colours have lessened to reduce the overall skin reaction. Removing red and yellow ink is expected to be accompanied by blistering, and at this time, treatment is only performed on untanned Caucasian skin types due to the risks of skin lightening.

Picoway on Darker Skin Types

We can effectively use the PicoWay 1064 nm laser for darker skin types to break up black and some dark blue ink colours. We also offer the Revlite – which is excellent on darker skin types with inked shading and a history of skin pigmentation problems.

The PicoWay Tattoo Removal System is an advanced and highly effective laser technology designed to remove unwanted tattoos. It stands out for its ability to achieve faster results with fewer treatments compared to other lasers.

How does the PicoWay system work?

PicoWay operates by emitting ultra-short pulses in picoseconds, breaking down tattoo ink particles into minuscule fragments. These tiny particles are then naturally expelled from the body, resulting in efficient and accelerated tattoo removal.

PicoWay offers several advantages, including fewer treatment sessions, less discomfort during treatment, better clearance of tattoos, and the ability to address a wide array of tattoo colours. Its efficiency and comfort make it stand out among other tattoo removal methods.

Is the PicoWay treatment suitable for all skin types?

Yes, PicoWay is suitable for all skin types when removing black and dark blue inks, making it a versatile choice for individuals with varying skin tones and textures. However, different colour inks require different wavelengths, so Pulse Light Clinic may offer alternative lasers for your tattoo removal.

Can PicoWay remove coloured ink tattoos?

PicoWay excels in removing coloured ink tattoos. Its advanced technology effectively targets a broad spectrum of colours, offering a solution for those with vibrant and multi-coloured tattoos.

What is the average number of sessions required for tattoo removal with PicoWay?

The average number of sessions for PicoWay tattoo removal varies, but it is generally fewer than other laser methods. This can lead to faster and more efficient results, with patients often requiring fewer appointments.

What makes PicoWay different from other lasers?

PicoWay's distinguishing factor lies in its ultra-short pulses in picoseconds, allowing for quicker and more effective tattoo removal. Its ability to address a wide range of colours and skin types sets it apart from traditional laser systems.

How can I get an assessment for PicoWay tattoo removal?

To get a personalised assessment for PicoWay tattoo removal, schedule a consultation with a qualified practitioner or a specialised clinic offering PicoWay services. During the assessment, they will evaluate your tattoo, skin type, and other relevant factors to provide tailored recommendations.
