PicoWay or PicoSure?

I have a black forearm tattoo .. Dragon head and neck which is quite detailed with black lines and some shading. 20cmx10cm...I want it removed ASAP after only having it inked a few weeks ago. What is the best machine to deal with this..Picoway or picosure ? Also how long before I can't start treatment? What % do I have of total removal? Thanks

Picoway for tattoo removal

I purchased the Picoway after carefully evaluating many machines for tattoo removal. I have found it to be highly effective, but depending on the tattoo it will take more than one treatment. Hope that helps.

Pico removal

Pico technology is definitely the way to go with tattoo removal. It is much faster with less pain and scarring than prior technology.  We use the Picoway and have found it to have amazing results in tattoo removal.  The picowxy uses photoacoustic technology to shatter the ink particles.  This helps the ink go away faster and better.  It will take several treatments with any laser and usually is not a single session.

Laser Tattoo Removal

Pico lasers are the most advanced technology. I utilize the PiQo4 laser which has 4 Pico wavelengths making it possible to remove 96% of ink in as little as 4-6 treatments. I also utilize the Picosure for a total of 5 Pico wavelengths. Tattoos are removed faster and safer with Pico lasers and there is less risk of scarring. It is important not only to seek the best technology but an experienced laser tattoo removal provider.
