PicoWay Laser Tattoo Removal

Paradise Valley Dermatology Has One of Only Two PicoWay Lasers in the State.

The Newest, Safest, Most Comfortable Way to Remove Tattoos

Statistics show that upwards of 25% of the population has tattoos, and up to 50% of those with tattoos may experience some regret or dissatisfaction with their tattoos at some point. Tattoo removal options have been available for some time, but most methods are either not very effective or have varying degrees of risk. New techniques for tattoo removal minimize the risk for scarring and discomfort and yield better results.

The PicoWay laser is the newest, safest and most comfortable way to remove tattoos. The PicoWay laser uses concentrated bursts of energy using laser wavelengths specific to the colors of a client’s tattoo to break up tattoo particles under the skin. The ink is then easily eliminated by the body. PicoWay enables removal of multi-colored tattoos, recalcitrant tattoos and benign pigmented lesions on any skin type

The pulses of the PicoWay laser are much shorter than traditional tattoo removal lasers, pulsing at a picosecond, or one trillionth of a second, leading to less discomfort and risk of complications or side effects.

Drastically Reduce the Number of Treatments Required

Laser tattoo removal uses lasers to break up the ink under the skin which is then eliminated by the body. This is most effective on black or blue ink because these colors absorb more of the light wavelengths of the lasers. Multi-colored tattoos can make tattoo removal more difficult and extend the number of sessions required to completely remove a tattoo.

The PicoWay laser uses color specific lasers to target each individual color of ink, so a tattoo can be effectively removed in as few as 1 or 2 sessions. Treatment effectiveness can be affected by many factors, however, including the size and depth of the tattoo, the age of the tattoo, and where it is located on the body, so individual results may vary.

No More Severe Discomfort

Laser light is targeted at unwanted pigment in ultrashort picosecond pulses. These pulses shatter the pigment into very tiny particles which are then easily eliminated by the body’s natural processes. The PicoWay laser emits less heat energy than traditional lasers providing a more comfortable treatment.

Works on More Skin Types and Tones

Other tattoo removal options on the market have an increased risk of discomfort either during the procedure or after treatment. Options such as excision, which is removal of tattooed skin, dermabrasion or salabrasion, which is when moist gauze pads saturated with a salt solution are used to abrade the tattooed area, can cause pain, soreness and skin inflammation. Traditional laser removal can also cause discomfort because the heat associated with laser removal is pulsed in each spot much longer than with a PicoWay laser. By using ultra-fast, high powered pulses, the PicoWay laser produces less heat on the skin for a fraction of the time. While many clients of traditional laser treatment report that the pulses feel like being snapped with a rubber band over and over, the PicoWay laser is not as painful. After a few treatments, patients report little to no pain at all.

Remove More Than Just Tattoos

The PicoWay laser is effective for more than just tattoo removal. Sometimes a person can develop pigmented lesions on their faces, arms or other parts of his or her body. Living in the “Valley of the Sun” can exacerbate the problem and produce more blemishes. The PicoWay laser can eliminate unwanted sunspots, freckles, or other pigmented skin lesions. By using a similar process to tattoo removal, the PicoWay laser breaks up the pigment of each lesion into tiny particles which are then eliminated by the body’s natural processes. Pigmented skin lesion removal can make your skin look years younger by eliminating spots acquired over a lifetime in the sun.
