Laser Tattoo Removal
There is no better device for removing tattoos and pigment than our new PiQo4 (pee-ko-4) picosecond laser! The PiQo4 laser is the most powerful laser on the market for removing tattoos of all colors, brown spots, sun spots, birth marks, and the pigmentation of melasma. The PiQo4 laser uses a precise combination of high power output and four wavelength to target nine of the most common tattoo ink colors and various brown discolorations on the skin. Because it can treat a larger sized area per pulse than competitor lasers, it reaches even the deepest most stubborn colors and clears pigment more efficiently than other devices.
How do tattoo removal lasers work?
Tattoos placed by both professionals and amateurs can be removed by our tattoo lasers. Tattoo lasers work by targeting colored pigment particles. The particles absorb laser light, which is converted into heat almost instantly. This heat destroys the particles, and they are eliminated through the skin and internally by your immune system. Immediately after your procedure, the treated tattoo can appear white, but it becomes pink and crusted over the next few days. As your skin heals, your tattoo fades.
How does the new PiQo4 laser work for tattoo removal?
The PiQo4 laser delivers energy in exceptionally fast nano and picosecond pulses. Studies have shown that the best way to clear pigment in tattoos is to first use short bursts of energy in the nanosecond range. This breaks up large “rocks” of pigment into smaller pebbles. Then, subsequent laser passes utilize even faster picosecond pulses to break these pebbles into sand. What does this mean for your tattoo? Faster clearance in as few as 2 treatments! Most other tattoo lasers have just nano or pico second capabilities alone, which are simply less effective than the combination.
What makes the PiQo4 laser better than competitor pigment and tattoo removing lasers?
- The PiQo4 laser uses the highest energy, 10 times greater than any competitor system, allowing it to remove tattoos in 40% fewer treatments.
- Because of its deeper penetration, it can clear more stubborn tattoos more efficiently and safely.
- Its 4 distinct wavelengths allows it to treat 9 of the most popular tattoo colors more efficiently
- The PiQo4 laser also has a fractionated setting, allowing it to gently remove more challenging pigmentation in darker skin tones without injury.
How many treatments are needed to remove my tattoo?
Depending on the size and colors in your tattoo, most tattoos can be cleared in only 2-5 treatments.
Do treatments with the PiQo4 laser hurt?
Before your treatment, we numb the area with either topical anesthetic cream or injected numbing medication. Your comfort is our priority, and we have numerous techniques to make every one of your experiences pleasant.
Does the PiQo4 laser leave a scar?
Because of its efficient energy system, the PiQo4 is designed to treat pigment and tattoos without damaging surrounding skin. Although skin may become red or temporarily discolored immediately after treatment, it should return to normal after healing. If you are prone to developing thick scars or keloids, you should let your doctor know before treatment.
What is the recovery after PiQo4 laser treatments?
After each treatment, you can immediately resume your normal routine. Your tattoo may appear gray, pink, or frosted, but this usually fades within a few hours. You should keep the area moist with ointment and protected from the sun as your skin heals and pigment disappears.
