How Tattoo Removal Works
Before the procedure, a numbing agent is applied to the target area.
During the treatment the PicoWay handpiece delivers energy with a highly precise, high-power laser in extremely short pulses to target ink particles with great impact.
These pulses shatter the tattoo ink into minuscule particles, making it easier for the body to carry away and clear the tattoo, requiring few treatments. Following the PicoWay treatment, most of the ink particles are removed by the body.
