Bad decisions can happen, but few stay with you like a regrettable tattoo. With Syneron Candea’s PicoWay laser, removing your unwanted ink is faster, safer and easier than ever.
Developed by Syneron Candela, a global leader in non-surgical aesthetic devices, the PicoWay laser has completely revolutionized the tattoo removal industry. Regrettable ink can be easily removed without intensely long and painful sessions. Previous less advanced lasers were slow, uncomfortable, and limited in the skin tones and types of tattoos they could successfully (and more importantly, safely) treat. Our Enlighten Laser and Skin Care Clinic in Airdrie, Alberta and Corchrane, Alberta offer PicoWay tattoo removal sessions with certified, expert laser technicians.
Why PicoWay Laser Tattoo Removal is easier:
To understand why PicoWay removes ink easier than other technologies, you need to know how laser tattoo removal works. The common misconception is that the laser removes the ink, when in reality your body actually removes it. The laser works by pulsating energy in and out of the skin in rapid movements, to shatter the ink particles into very tiny pieces that the body can then absorb and dispose of through natural processes.
PicoWay has a pulse speed measured in picoseconds, which equals one trillionth of a second. To put this in perspective, traditional lasers worked at a speed measured in nanoseconds—just one billionth of a second. Although both numbers seem high PicoWay’s pulse rate ends up being about 1000 times faster. With this ultra-quick speed, PicoWay can remove unwanted ink in fewer treatments, with less discomfort.
Why PicoWay Laser Tattoo Removal is safer:
Past technologies exclusively used heat energy to break up ink particles, a method which was not only painful but unsafe for anyone with a darker skin tone (as the pigment in the skin could easily be mistaken as ink pigment). Rather than use heat, PicoWay utilizes photoacoustic energy waves to successfully remove unwanted ink, without intense discomfort or risk of injury, no matter your skin type. At Enlighten Laser and Skin Care Clinic Airdrie, our expert team of laser technicians will walk you through the entire process prior to beginning your removal sessions to ensure your ease and total understanding.
Why PicoWay Laser Tattoo Removal is better:
Along with it’s ultra-fast speed, PicoWay is also known for being able to treat a wide variety of ink colours. Most tattoo removal lasers only use one or two wavelengths that can limit the range of tattoo colours that are able to be treated. With PicoWay, three separate wavelengths are used to remove red/yellow, blue/green and black ink colours (532 nm, 785 nm and 1064 nm, respectively). This is the first laser of it’s kind to perform at such a fast speed, with such a broad spectrum of wavelengths, making PicoWay far superior to any other technology currently on the market.
