Q-Switched lasers with nanosecond technology require numerous treatment sessions over longer periods of time, cause significant pain during treatment and often don’t completely remove tattoos. Some people report the pain of Q-Switched lasers to be similar to the pain of cooking grease splashing on their skin. Additionally, the difference in the length of time it takes to remove a tattoo with a Q-Switched laser can be a year or more than with the PicoWay.
PicoWay’s unique, proprietary mode of action has the highest peak power and the shortest pulse duration of any picosecond device on the market for superior efficacy, safety and comfort. These bursts of energy create a photo-acoustic impact which breaks up the tattoo ink or pigmentation into smaller, more easily absorbed particles. Not all tattoo removal clinics are prepared to invest in the best equipment on the market. We have seen many tattoos that have scarred tissue and have resisted fading due to the previous treatment with heat based nanosecond laser devices. Here at Absolute Tattoo Removal, your comfort and results matter to us.
PicoWay’s ultrashort pulses enable the strong photo-acoustic impact that avoids harming the skin rather than a photo-thermal approach that heats the skin and can lead to side effects such as pain, scars, and downtime.
