The PicoWay system has the lowest pulse lengths of any aesthetic laser—a picosecond is a trillionth of a second. These ultra-short laser pulses can cure a wide range of skin kinds and tones, including darker skin tones. Less advanced lasers with longer nanosecond pulses generate a photothermal effect, which causes scarring, hyperpigmentation, and hyperpigmentation in darker skin tones. The PicoWay system is also the first picosecond platform with four wavelengths, allowing it to treat a wide spectrum of tattoo hues, including difficult-to-remove blue and green tattoos.
The PicoWay technology emits focused energy pulses that are short, quick, and strong. The mainly photoacoustic impact required to shatter tattoo pigment into tiny particles is created in this way. This is accomplished without the photothermal effects of conventional lasers, which may scorch surrounding skin tissue—in striking contrast to nanosecond laser technology’s slower pulse speed.
Tattoo removal customers should clean and shave the region to be treated properly before each session. At the time of therapy, a topical anaesthetic or a cooling pack may be used. Treatments usually take 15 to 30 minutes and need several sessions spaced 6 to 16 weeks apart, depending on the size and complexity of the tattoo. After each treatment, the patient should clean the area and, if going outside, use sunscreen on a frequent basis. Mild redness or itching is possible, although it usually only lasts a few days.
With the introduction of picosecond lasers, tattoo removal technology has advanced tremendously. Both the practitioner and the patient will find the PicoWay method to be more convenient.
