Rapid and Visible Results
PicoWay is the latest and most advanced laser on the market, designed for tattoo removal without scarring.
Available now for the first time, the world’s most powerful, triple wavelength picosecond laser allows for quicker and safer removal of tattoos. PicoWay is the only picosecond laser on the market operating on three wavelengths in the picosecond range (1064nm / 532nm / 785nm).
Advantages at a glance:
✔ eliminates unwanted tattoos, of any type and colour
✔ Picoway is suitable for all skin types
✔ difficult-to-remove colour tattoos are no longer an obstacle
✔ removes even recalcitrant tattoos which have previously undergone unsuccessful treatment with regular Q-switched lasers
✔ unlike with procedures carried out with other lasers currently on the market, positive changes can be seen after only a few treatments
✔ shorter intervals between procedures, carried out every 3-4 weeks (compared to eight week intervals when using other lasers)
✔ firmer skin as an excellent side-effect
✔ procedures are shorter and less painful
✔ quicker skin healing

How many procedures are required?
The effectiveness of treatment depends on many factors, such your skin colour and age, and the placement, depth, size and type of the tattoo.
Due to superior tattoo removal and shorter intervals being required between procedures, due to the more rapid regeneration of the skin, treatment time is estimated to be only half as long compared to procedures carried out with “standard lasers”. However, complete removal always requires more than one procedure, regardless of the type of tattoo. It usually takes eight procedures for our clients to get the results they desire.
What is the cost of a single procedure?
The cost of procedures depends on the placement, size and condition of the tattoo. All prices are listed on the menu bar of our website.
The specific number of procedures required to achieve results (whether completely removing the tattoo or covering it up) depends on the individual. For more information, schedule a free consultation.
How does PicoWay work? Does it cause any pain?
This innovative, picosecond technology decomposes the tattoo in one-billionth of a second into tiny particles, which are then eliminated through natural processes.
Colour elements are destroyed during a photoacoustic reaction. These impulses are so short that almost no heat is emitted during the process. For this reason, the procedure is much less painful, and side-effects are minimal.
The severity of the will depend on the type and placement of the tattoo.
What should you expect, and what precautions should you take during treatment?
In order to select the most effective treatment, your first visit will be dedicated to assessing how your skin reacts to the laser.
A cold compress may be applied right after the procedure to soothe the area being treated. In some cases, an antibiotic ointment may be prescribed. Between the first few procedures, make sure the patch of skin treated is not subjected to rubbing, and refrain from using exfoliants.
Is laser tattoo removal safe and free of side-effects?
Since the PicoWay laser is directed only at pigment – in this case, tattooed areas of your skin – the surrounding tissue is not damaged by the procedure.
Furthermore, given the picosecond nature of the PicoWay laser, which usually exerts a photoacoustic, rather than thermic effect, heat emissions are significantly reduced. This ensures safety and a lower frequency of side-effects. After the procedure, the skin around the treated area may change in colour, becoming red. Some patients also report temporary brightening of the skin, which normally goes away in time.
Can PicoWay also remove brown spots and freckles?
Yes, PicoWay is an effective tool for removing a wide variety of pigmentation spots. For more information on pigmentation spots, click this link.
