Effective Laser Tattoo Removal Using PicoWay®
While it may have seemed like a good idea at the time, do you have a tattoo that you now regret and that you would like removed? If so, The Facial Center offers safe, effective laser tattoo removal at both our Charleston, WV, and Hurricane, WV locations using the advanced PicoWay® laser. PicoWay® uses three wavelengths and ultra-short picosecond pulses to target and eliminate areas of tattoo ink of all colors and types. Not all methods of laser tattoo removal are created equal. Many have difficulty removing shades of red, blue, and green, which can be extremely resistant to treatment, but not PicoWay®.
How Our Laser Tattoo Removal Process Works
Thanks to its maximum peak power, PicoWay® has been proven to remove even the most stubborn of tattoo inks. The PicoWay® laser emits a powerful burst of light that gets absorbed directly by the pigment in your tattoo. It’s then broken down into the smallest particles possible so that your body can naturally flush it out. And because its ultra-short picosecond pulses are much faster than many other types of laser tattoo removal, you should experience minimal to no discomfort during the procedure.
Depending on your tattoo’s size, location, color, and depth and your specific pigment type, the number of treatments required to remove your tattoo will vary from individual to individual. Typically, our laser tattoo removal treatments are performed in intervals spanning 8-12 weeks. Common side effects reported by patients include temporary skin redness or darkening, swelling, bruising, and crusting (from the tattooed area scabbing over). During your initial consultation, we’ll test your skin’s reaction to the laser to determine the most effective method of treatment.
