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.
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.
