PicoWay- Frequently Asked Questions


How Laser Tattoo Removal Works

Medical grade lasers remove tattoos by delivering specific wavelengths of laser light into the skin in very short bursts of picosecond or nanosecond pulses of energy, creating a shockwave that fragments the ink and allows the body’s immune system to attack and eliminate the dispersed ink particles. The body’s immune system removes the fragmented ink to fade the tattoo. The number of treatments are determined by the laser system used and the person’s immune system response. The clinicians at Detail Smoother Skin are responsible for explaining this process thoroughly during the free consultation. Each expertly trained and accredited clinician will assess your skin type and adjust the laser to provide the optimum setting to deliver the results you expect with minimum discomfort.

What is the difference between Picosecond and Nanosecond?

What is the difference between Picosure and PicoWay machines?

Picosure was one of the first Picosecond tattoo removal machines on the market. The PicoWay has improved on this technology in three key areas:

  1. Higher power, 0.9GW for PicoWay vs 0.36GW for PicoSure meaning the ink will shatter into smaller particles, meaning faster removal
  2. Shorter picosecond pulses – up to 50% shorter, resulting in less heating and more photoacoustic effect
  3. Dual wavelengths – this is a major benefit over PicoSure machine (single wavelength) as it enables the PicoWay to treat all ink colours and all skin types including darker skin

Why is it some tattoo removal clinics quote 15+ sessions?

Hopefully you are not considering IPL removal as an option to remove your tattoo. This technology is not designed to remove tattoos effectively and can lead to scarring and skin damage.

One reason for so many treatment sessions is that the clinic or clinics are using older, slower and less powerful technology. As you will see from the graphics on this page, there is a significant difference between nanosecond and picosecond devices and there is still a significant difference between the Picosure and PicoWay devices. PicoWay is the only system to choose to remove your tattoos quickly and completely.

Choosing an inferior system will cost you more in the long term as the overall costs will end up more expensive with more treatments required than choosing the PicoWay.

What is the downtime after a treatment?

The time between treatments at Detail Smoother Skin will be significantly less than most other clinics. We have got this down to two weeks between sessions in the past, but this will depend on many factors.

How much does laser tattoo removal treatments cost?

The cost of your treatment will depend on many factors including size of the tattoo, skin type and age.
