The PicoWay picosecond system delivers the shortest pulse durations of any aesthetic laser: one picosecond is equal to one trillionth of a second. These ultra-short laser pulses allow treatment across a broad range of skin types, including darker skin tones.

Less advanced lasers that offer longer nanosecond pulses create a photothermal effect, which can overheat melanin found in darker skin tones and cause scarring, hypopigmentation, and hyperpigmentation.

The PicoWay system delivers ultra-short, ultra-fast, powerful pulses of targeted energy, creating the primarily photoacoustic impact needed to fracture tattoo ink into miniscule particles. This is achieved without the photothermal impact of other lasers, which can overheat surrounding skin tissue—a stark contrast to the slower pulse speed of nanosecond laser technology.

Before each session, tattoo removal clients are asked to clean and shave the area to be treated. A topical anesthetic or cooling pack may be applied at the time of treatment. Treatments typically last 15-30 minutes and can require multiple sessions spaced 6-16 weeks apart, depending on the tattoo size and its complexity. After each session, clients are advised to keep the area clean and regularly apply sunblock to the area if going outdoors. Mild redness or itching may occur and typically resolves on its own after a few days.
