If you’re thinking about laser tattoo removal, it’s essential to know what laser tattoo removal is and if it’s right for you. This article will cover laser tattoo removal in general and the PicoWay® laser specifically.
What is Laser Tattoo Removal?
Laser tattoo removal is a laser treatment that uses laser light to break up the ink in a tattoo. The laser targets pigment cells using wavelengths of intense energy to break them into smaller particles. Macrophages (white blood cells)then absorb these ink particles that are then naturally eliminated from the body with the help of our lymphatic system.
There are a variety of laser devices to remove tattoos, but PicoWay® outperforms them all with the highest peak power for a more effective tattoo removal treatment. Other benefits that set this laser apart from its competitors include the fact that fewer treatments are required, less heat is used, and there is a reduced risk of scarring. This Gold Standard laser is also capable of treating ALL tattoo colors with it’s three wavelengths.
