Laser Tattoo Removal

Are you rethinking your ink? Many people get a tattoo, only to regret it later due to poor artisanship, bad placement, or wrong coloring/shading. Fortunately, laser tattoo removal safely targets the ink beneath the skin without causing adverse side effects. The PicoWay laser is a dual-wavelength device that targets a wide spectrum of tattoo ink colors, including red and yellow.

How Does Tattoo Removal Work?

A tattoo is the result of pigment being inserted into the dermal layer of skin. Laser tattoo removal targets this pigment by producing a burst of light that is selectively absorbed by the tattoo pigment. This light energy causes the pigment to fracture into smaller particles that are then removed by your body by natural processes.

Tattoo removal requires multiple treatments to continue to break the pigment into smaller and smaller particles. Black pigment absorbs all laser wavelengths and is the easiest to treat. Other colors selectively absorb laser wavelengths and require more specific laser wavelengths.

The PicoWay laser is the premier technology in laser tattoo removal. Unlike traditional lasers, the PicoWay delivers intense energy to the targeted pigment in ultra-short pulses.
