PiQo4 Laser Solves Colorful Issues In Mountain View

Your skin should be memorable for its flawless tone – not for pigmentation spots or unwanted ink. The Menkes Clinic & Surgery Center brings the power of PiQo4 laser treatment to patients in the Mountain View area.

How it works

The PiQo4 laser is the most robust pigment and tattoo removal solution available today. Its effectiveness lies in a unique combination of pico (one trillionth of a second) and nano (a billionth of a second) energies for variable pulse duration. This advanced technology allows removal of a wide range of tattoo ink colors, as well as natural pigmentation spots.

Tattoos are considered permanent because ink particles are too big to be eliminated by the body’s natural healing processes. Laser treatment shatters pigments into finer particles that are harmlessly flushed by the immune system. All colors absorb and reflect specific spectra of light, so the PiQo4’s variable wavelengths are indispensable in efficient tattoo removal. Energy is delivered so fast that pigments are destroyed before heat is generated.

The same principle applies to removal of natural brown and red pigmentation. Because the PiQo4 laser targets pigments at various depths, it gently and effectively addresses freckles, sun damage, melasma, and some birthmarks.

What to expect

Nanosecond pulses deliver quick bursts of energy to break up larger ink particles in deep skin layers. Then, a second pass with picosecond pulses attack smaller, shallow particles. Laser pigment removal requires a series of treatments, spaced several weeks apart. However, with the PiQo4, you can count on shorter and fewer sessions. This laser has the highest energy output on the market. In addition, it offers a variety of spot sizes, up to 15.5 mm, allowing precise penetration depth and better disbursement into embedded ink particles. With this modality, our doctors can safely treat the widest range of tattoo colors, on most skin types. 

Advantages of PiQo4 pigment removal treatment:

  • FDA-approved
  • Four wavelengths to treat most ink colors
  • 40 percent less treatments than with conventional lasers
  • Improved comfort
  • Reduced downtime
