Acqua Blu Medical Spa is now offering PicoWay® permanent laser tattoo removal in Wexford, PA, and Pittsburgh, PA. PicoWay® uses state-of-the-art laser technology to provide safe, fast, and comfortable treatments.
The PicoWay® system delivers energy in faster, shorter pulses than those used by traditional tattoo removal treatments near Pittsburgh, PA. These pulses are measured in picoseconds — only one trillionth of a second — which leads to a more comfortable patient experience. PicoWay® is also particularly effective at removing treatment-resistant ink particles.
Why Are Tattoos So Hard to Remove?
Our skin is made of multiple layers. Tattoo ink is injected directly into our dermis, a deeper layer of skin. Therefore, it is difficult to remove the ink without damaging the surrounding skin.
Past laser tattoo removal treatments in Wexford, PA, and the surrounding area, could easily treat blues and blacks. But they would often leave behind shades such as red and yellow.
Ink Particle Size
The ink particle size in a tattoo is too large for our body to remove through its natural processes. That is why tattoos are considered permanent. Laser tattoo removal breaks up the ink into smaller particles. Sometimes, however, the particles are still too large even after multiple traditional laser tattoo treatments.
Darker skin tones may absorb more of the laser’s energy into the skin. This leads to less impressive results and may cause the removal of natural skin pigment. It may also increase the risk of injury.
Why Is PicoWay® So Effective?
Requires Fewer Treatments
PicoWay® laser treatment for tattoo removal requires fewer sessions than traditional treatments. The FDA-cleared procedure will more quickly remove a wide range of tattoos.
Delivers Fast Results
This powerful laser technology will shatter ink particles, allowing the body to naturally remove the tattoo ink and leave the skin noticeably clearer. Most patients see results in half the sessions of a traditional laser treatment for tattoo removal.
Patients Feel Less Discomfort
Because the PicoWay® laser’s high-powered pulses are faster than past tattoo removal solutions in Pittsburgh, PA, you will feel almost no pain during the procedure. The degree of discomfort will vary for each person based on the nature and location of their tattoo.
Safe for All Skin Types
PicoWay® tattoo removal in Pittsburgh, PA, uses fast pulses of energy that more directly target the ink particles, causing less heat to affect the surrounding skin. Therefore, it is an ideal treatment for all different skin types.
What to Expect During Your PicoWay® Tattoo Removal Treatment in Wexford, PA
We will first test your skin’s reaction to the PicoWay® laser to determine the most effective treatment for you. The time required for your treatment will vary based upon the characteristics of your unwanted tattoo, but it will be noticeably faster than other options.
After the treatment, we will apply a cold compress to soothe your skin, and we may also recommend a topical antibiotic ointment. For a few days following the permanent tattoo removal, you should avoid scrubbing the treated area or using abrasive skin cleansers.
