Many people with tattoos now regret having them and want to get them removed. It may not be possible to completely remove the tattoo inks years ago but today’s technology is advanced enough to allow you to remove the tattoos in just a few laser treatments. Syneron Candela has introduced one of the newest laser treatment techniques for tattoo removal including Picoway and Trivantage laser tattoo removal treatment.
Syneron Candela’s Picoway laser is a picosecond laser treatment method that allows you to safely remove tattoo and pigment lesions. The FDA approved laser treatment is useful for removing red, orange and yellow color tattoos. Usually, you only have to take half the number of treatments to wipe away the tattoo permanently when compared to the traditional laser tattoo removal technique. Each session is spaced in a period of between 6 – 8 weeks.
Syneron Picoway laser treatment uses the laser induced optical breakdown (LIOB) technology to break down the pigments of the tattoo into many small particles that are later absorbed by the lymphatic system in the body. As the particles get absorbed by the natural filtering system in the body, it will gradually diminish until it is no longer visible on the skin. It does not cause any type of negative side effect on the tissues. This is because the laser used in Picoway is a thousand times shorter compared to the traditional Q switch laser. Picoway laser is the best for you if you are a person with dark colored skin.
