Laser Tattoo Removal Birmingham AL
PicoWay is a remarkably innovative dual wavelength picosecond laser from Syneron Candela, the most trusted name in lasers. PicoWay enables removal of multi-colored tattoos, recalcitrant tattoos and benign pigmented lesions on any skin type.
PicoWay’s unique mode of action is based on delivering ultra-short picosecond pulses of energy to the tissue. These bursts of energy create a photo-mechanical impact which breaks up the tattoo ink or pigmentation into smaller, more easily eliminated particles.
PicoWay has received CE Mark indication to treat tattoos of all types and colors and pigmented lesions on any skin type. The new dual wavelength device, with 532 nm and 1064 nm wavelengths, delivers energy to the skin using pulses which are trillionths of a second, known as picosecond pulses.
PicoWay’s high peak power and shortest pulse duration on the market enable a unique mode of action which creates the strongest photo-mechanical impact to break up the tattoo ink or pigmentation into much smaller particles than Q-switched lasers, resulting in most effective clearance in fewer treatments.
Candela PicoWay® laser system was designed to treat a wide variety of pigmented lesions. It can safely and effectively remove or lighten pigmented lesions such as age spots, freckles, birthmarks and more from all types of skin. The PicoWay® laser is also one of the most successful means of removing multicolor tattoos. This laser offers a combination of two wavelengths to provide more treatment options than other similar devices. The PicoWay provides a precision treatment that targets only the pigment without damaging any nearby tissue.
In many cases, a pigmented lesion or tattoo can be completely eradicated by the PicoWay. However, its success depends on a number of factors, including the location, length of time it has existed, type of pigmentation being treated and the depth to which it reaches. The PicoWay is more successful than many other forms of treatment for tattoos because it is capable of acting on multiple ink colors, higher peak power and picosecond technology.. To begin the procedure, the doctor places the handpiece against the skin in the treatment area. Most patients experience only mild discomfort, as the process feels like a rubber band being snapped on the skin. The PicoWay laser emits pulses of energy to remove the excess pigmentation at the site. The number of pulses needed to eliminate the lesion will vary, with smaller or shallower lesions requiring less treatment. Larger, deeper lesions may not be resolved in one treatment session.
- Dual wavelengths – 1064 nm and 532 nm wavelengths in one laser system
- Treats the widest range of tattoos – 2 wavelengths to treat most tattoo colors and types, including recalcitrant tattoos
- Treat dermal and epidermal pigmented lesions – Large spot sizes enable deep penetration when needed
- Highest peak power – For effective energy over the broadest range of spot sizes
- Shortest picosecond pulses – 40% shorter picosecond pulses mean effective, yet lower fluences, for less risk of side effects
