Laser Tattoo Removal
Are you considering removing that tattoo that has outlived its welcome on your body? PicoWay laser system treatment may be just what you need if you are thinking tattoo removal. PicoWay shatters the ink into tiny particles that are not visible to the naked eye. The technology is highly effective and can work on a broad range of tattoo ink colors. This includes the rather stubborn green and blue inks.
PicoWay is an innovative laser with ultra-short pulse durations and high peak power. The laser beams can easily reach underneath the surface for targeting ink pigments. Dr. Q Medical Spa, led by board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Suzanne Quardt (Dr. Q) provides laser tattoo removal treatments to patients in Palm Springs, Palm Desert, Rancho Mirage, Beverly Hills, CA, and surrounding locations.
PicoWay laser system is an FDA approved picosecond laser for removing tattoos. It first became popular for its pigment and tattoo removal capabilities. However, it is not becoming known for improving a wide variety of skin care concerns as well.
Different laser wavelengths and handpieces are used in PicoWay for treating these conditions. For instance, the PicoWay Resolve is for treating wrinkles and acne scars while PicoWay Zoom is useful for treating dark spots and removing tattoos.
In comparison to different types of picosecond laser available for cosmetic use, PicoWay boasts of the shortest pulse duration. It offers effective treatments with almost no to low downtime.
How Does it Work?
Picosecond laser is used in all PicoWay treatments that has the shortest laser pulse and high power. Picosecond is almost a trillionth of second. These ultra-short pulses help in creating a “photoacoustic” effect on the skin. This prevents the skin from heating because of photothermal effect. There is no scarring or downtime for this reason after PicoWay treatments.
The results of PicoWay laser are enhanced because of ultra-short laser pulses and high power. You can apply makeup over wrinkles and acne scars within a day of the treatment. You can also resume normal activities shortly.
The PicoWay laser treatment reaches deep under the skin for maximum impact without harming the outermost skin layers. Ultra-short pulses vaporize pigment targets before the skin can overheat or develop any other side effects. A wide range of tattoo colors can be treated by PicoWay. Skilled treatment providers can eliminate most tattoos over a series of brief sessions across a broad range of skin textures and types.
Pain in Laser Tattoo Removal
The way PicoWay will feel will depend on the treatment you receive. Some pain and discomfort are expected if you are removing a tattoo. Most patients report marginal levels of pain in PicoWay treatments.
Returning to Normal Routine
There is little to almost no downtime in PicoWay laser tattoo removal. Most people are able to resume their normal routine and daily activities shortly after the laser treatment session. You may require a bandage for keeping the area dry for a few days.
