The Revolutionary PicoWay Laser is a picosecond pulse laser system used to treat skin conditions with high pulse energy in an extremely short space of time. It is a remarkable dual wavelength laser. It is extremely effective in the removal of multi-coloured tattoos and pigmented lesions. Its main method of action based on delivering short bursts of energy (picosecond pulses) to the tissue. This creates a photo-mechanical impact which then breaks up the tattoo ink or the pigmentation into smaller more easily eliminated particles.
Advantages of PicoWay laser
• The first dual laser with PicoWay technology
• Dual wavelengths 1064nm and 532nm in one laser system.
• It can treat the widest range of tattoo colours and types of tattoos.
• It treats both dermal and epidermal lesions
• It has the shortest picosecond pulses
Removal of Pigmented Lesions
The PicoWay Resolve hand-piece was launched in 2015. It is the only picosecond device that can deliver precise consistent energy to the entire treatment area. Laser light targets unwanted pigment in ultrashort picosecond pulses. These pulses shatter the pigment into tiny particles which are then eliminated by the body’s natural processes. The introduction of two wavelengths allows for the treatment of shallow lesions with the 532nm wavelength and the 1064nm wavelength is used for deeper lesions. It also can treat all skin types with no downtime as it able to avoid disrupting the surrounding tissue. The PicoWay Resolve procedure using breakthrough technology is able to revitalize and tone aging skin while also eliminating unwanted pigment. Picosecond lasers are particularly effective in targeting melanin so they are a very good option for treating melasma which couldn’t be treated well with lasers before. The effectiveness of the treatment depends on many factors such as the location, depth, size and type of pigmentation. Some lesions can be resolved in a single treatment; others may require several treatments for optimal results.
Advanced Tattoo Removal
Tattoos consist of thousands of particles of tattoo pigment that are suspended in the skin. Normal human growth and healing processes usually remove small foreign particles from the skin, tattoo pigment is permanent as it assembles into cells that are already present in the body and they become too large to be removed.
The process of laser tattoo removal is thought to be a two-step process. In the first step the short laser pulse fractures the ink into smaller pieces. In the second step the smaller pieces are then naturally expelled by the body. These two processes show an immediate visible reduction in the pigment of the tattoo in the first week after treatment followed by a gradual fading over the next number of weeks. Multiple treatments are usually needed as the particle gets smaller after each treatment. Many types of tattoos can be treated including professional and amateur and even traumatic tattoos.
PicoWay Laser – A Picosecond is a trillionth of a second which is how long each pulse of this revolutionary laser lasts. This breakthrough picosecond technology shatters the tattoo with pulses in a trillionth of a second into miniscule particles. PicoWay is the latest solution for the removal of tattoos and unwanted pigmented lesions.
