What is PicoWay laser tattoo removal?

It’s a method for tattoo removal that uses the PicoWay laser, a triple-wave picosecond laser. The triple wavelength allows for the treatment of all tattoo colors and types, as well as all skin types. The picosecond pulse on the laser is one trillionth of a second, which is one thousand times faster than many lasers that have a nanosecond pulse. The laser energy is delivered so rapidly that even the smallest pigment fragments of a tattoo should break apart. After, the body removes the fragments naturally and quickly, and after multiple sessions, the patient may be left with clear skin!

How many sessions will it take to remove a tattoo?

Typically, it takes six to eight sessions to remove a tattoo. This can depend on the type and size of the tattoo, though. A professional can give you a good idea of what you can expect for a number of sessions and your results.

What can I expect after a PicoWay treatment session?

Right after a treatment session, the treated area will look white in color, and you’ll have a bit of redness and swelling too. All that is perfectly normal, however, and the issues will go away over time. You may experience some blistering, but this is rare, and it can be treated to prevent any long-term effects. Sometimes, some hypopigmentation (skin whitening) can occur, but this typically goes away 6 to 12 months after your final treatment. Long-term side effects are rare. When you’re all done a treatment session, the provider will apply gauze and ointment to the treated area in order to protect it from infection.

As for results, you should expect to get them, but results can also depend on the type and size of a tattoo. We’ll give you a better idea of what to expect when you book a consultation here at True Laser Spa.

Can you completely remove a tattoo by laser treatment?

It’s possible to completely remove a tattoo with laser treatment, but this depends on factors like the type of the tattoo. In many cases, it just isn’t necessary to completely remove a tattoo because treatment can lighten or fade a tattoo to the point that it’s barely noticeable, if at all. PicoWay laser treatment can be effective, it may take several sessions or different treatments to remove your tattoo.
