How The PiQo4 Laser Treatment Works
The PiQo4 laser is the most robust pigment removal 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 the 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 inefficient laser tattoo removal. Energy is delivered so fast that pigments are destroyed before heat is generated.
The same principle applies to skin pigmentation treatment and the removal of natural brown and red pigment. Because the PiQo4 laser targets pigments at various depths, it gently and effectively addresses freckles, sun damage, melasma, and some birthmarks.
What to Expect
During laser tattoo removal, nanosecond pulses deliver quick bursts of energy to break up larger ink particles in deep skin layers. Then, a second pass with picosecond pulses attacks smaller, shallow particles. Laser tattoo removal and skin pigmentation treatment require 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 laser tattoo removal and skin pigmentation treatment:
- Four wavelengths to treat most ink colors
- 40 percent less treatments than with conventional lasers
- Improved comfort
- Reduced downtime
