PicoWay vs. PicoSure: Which is Ideal for Laser Tattoo Removal?

Most people make decisions in youth that they desperately regret as they get older. Some decisions have minimal consequences and others are life-altering. There are many young people who decide to get a tattoo. They may do it because of peer pressure, because they feel that they are in love or to show their affiliation with a certain group or organization.

Now these individuals are older. They look at their tattoo and all that they feel is frustration and regret. In times past, there would have been little that people could do to remove tattoos. Now, laser tattoo removal is an option, with various lasers that claim to offer amazing results. When it comes to PicoWay® vs PicoSure®, PicoWay® is ideal in virtually every way.

Simply put, PicoWay® is an advanced laser treatment that is a powerful tool for tattoo removal. PicoWay® provides a powerful alternative to conventional laser tattoo removal. Traditional laser tattoo removal is extremely limited. It is only effective if the ink and the tattoo are very dark and the skin of the individual getting the tattoo is light.

Modern tattoos are often full of bright and neon colors. Traditional laser tattoo removal does not have the ability to break down the particles in the ink effectively. These treatments are uncomfortable, they can leave scars and they can cause skin discoloration, especially in individuals who have darker skin tones.

Conversely, PicoWay® can treat tattoos regardless of their color and regardless of the skin type of the individual who has the tattoo. This is because this procedure has proprietary “pico” technology. This technology allows the laser’s energy to hit the skin with a very fast yet very powerful burst. The bursts are so fast that they can be measured by picoseconds. A picosecond is one trillionth of a second.

PicoWay® treatments have been cleared by the FDA to be used on tattoos on different parts of the body. It has been shown to offer better results and require fewer and faster treatments than PicoSure® and other similar treatments.

Laser tattoo removal via PicoWay® involves minimal risk. This is due to the short pulses of energy that are delivered in a targeted way to disrupt ink particles. The ink is disrupted, but only a small amount of heat is actually transferred into your skin.

PicoWay® has opened up the way for many individuals to undo a mistake that they made in their youth. With their tattoos gone, they are able to look in the mirror and finally feel happy with what they see.
