What’s the PicoWay® Laser?

PicoWay Laser Tattoo Removal: A Comprehensive Review

The Candela PicoWay is an advanced laser system that uses ultra-short pulse durations. This creates a photoacoustic effect on the skin, allowing the laser to target ink pigments while keeping the epidermis intact.

Unlike old lasers, the PicoWay laser machine minimizes skin heating to prevent damaging the surrounding tissues. At the same time, the laser pulses are ultra-fast and ultra-short to minimize discomfort.

Moreover, the PicoWay laser is designed to work from the inside out. This explains why it’s effective in targeting lesions and unwanted tattoos without harming the surrounding skin.

Still, it’s best to consult with a reliable provider to discuss what you need to know about this laser tattoo removal treatment.

Is the PicoWay® laser tattoo removal effective?

Our client tattoo removal reviews are proof that this treatment is indeed effective when it comes to erasing unwanted tattoos. Depending on the size of your tattoo and its colors, even a single session will show substantial results.

If you’re still not convinced, here’s a quick look at how the PicoWay laser erases tattoos quickly:

So, how does the Pico Way laser tattoo removal work? When the laser beams hit the skin underneath, they break up ink into tiny particles. Once the ink clusters are broken down, your body will naturally eliminate the toxins. From there, your tattoo will start to fade and totally removed after a few laser sessions.

Now, this leads us to another question: how many laser tattoo removal sessions do you need?

On average, most of our clients need 3 to 7 sessions to eliminate their unwanted tattoos completely. However, we also have to factor in the tattoo size, location, ink intensity, and colors. Most of the time, hard-to-remove colors like green and blue will need more sessions.

If you want to know exactly how many Pico Way tattoo removal sessions you need, call us, and our specialist will advise you.

Aftercare expectations for the PicoWay® laser

Does the laser tattoo removal hurt? Based on our clients’ Pico laser reviews, the treatment has a tolerable level of discomfort. They describe the sensation as a rubber band snapping on their skin.

However, we can also apply a topical numbing cream to ensure your session is as comfortable as possible.

Aside from that, you need to be realistic about the PicoWay tattoo removal before and after results. While a single session can yield obvious changes, it’s not enough to erase an entire tattoo. We always recommend booking multiple sessions for the best results (plus you get up to 20% OFF when you book at least 6 sessions!).

Also, there will be temporary side effects, which is true for all laser treatments. The treated area will be reddish, slightly swollen, and sensitive for a few days. This is normal and will resolve on its own.

PicoWay® vs Q-Plus EVO: which is better?

Both the PicoWay and Q-Plus EVO are popular Candela technologies used for tattoo removal and a variety of other skin treatments.

Generally, the PicoWay uses picosecond technology that offers faster and more precise results for tattoo removal.

On the other hand, the Q-switched Nd: YAG laser of Q-Plus EVO is effective for a wide range of skin problems, including tattoos. While you’ll need more sessions here for tattoo removal, it’s a good option if you also want to target other skin lesions.

But overall, why choose if you can try both in our medical spa? At Pure Skin Laser Center, we offer both the Candela PicoWay and Q-Plus EVO technology to give our clients the best of both worlds. If you want to know which one is best for your skin, contact us today for a consultation!
