When you want to return your skin to a blank canvas, PicoWay is the best solution!
What sets PicoWay apart?
The PicoWay® handpiece delivers short, ultra-pulses of energy that are so fast, they are measured in “Pico-seconds” that are trillionths of a second for a faster process.
The PicoWay® laser emits less heat energy than traditional lasers providing a more comfortable treatment. Ultra-fast delivery of high-powered energy helps ensure ink is shattered while the least amount of heat is transferred to the skin, making it safer for darker skin types.
The PicoWay® is a great way to remove multi colored tattoos or benign pigmented lesions on any skin type and color. Doctors recognize that smaller laser pulses are more effective in breaking up ink particles into smaller fragments and reducing them. Also, the PicoWay® does not damage the surrounding tissue the way other pigment removal lasers tend to do.
How are tattoos removed?
Medical lasers use a beam of light to significantly lighten or completely remove your tattoo. When the ink particles absorb the light from the laser, they are broken up into fragments and then absorbed through your body’s immune system. This process generally takes a few weeks. The larger the tattoo, the more sessions it will take to break down the ink particles.
What will my skin look like after removal?
Right after your treatment, your skin will have a white discoloration, and the area around the tattoo may become reddish and appear swollen. This is normal and will disappear slowly over time. Full results are achieved about five weeks after each treatment. Immediately after treatment, antibacterial ointment and gauze will be applied to the treated area to minimize infection.
How many tattoo removal treatments will I need?
For most clients we recommend a series of six treatments. Tattoo removal treatments will need to be spaced 8-10 weeks apart. Your skin will need to be fully healed before your next session to decrease the chance of scarring. We’ve noticed amazing results in our clients using this approach.
Are there any side effects?
Occasionally, a whitening of the skin may occur. However, normal skin tone should return within 6-12 months following your last treatment session. Since the ink used in tattooing can vary from tattoo to tattoo, some patients have only partial clearing even after several sessions.
Tattoo Removal Options
Before the advent of the medical laser, common techniques to remove tattoos included cryosurgery, dermabrasion or excision. These methods can be painful and may often result in scarring. Laser treatments are safer. They are minimally invasive and only target the ink used in the tattoo process. Lasers are now the modern standard for tattoo removal in Oklahoma City, specifically the PicoWay laser.
