PicoWay Can Remove Blue Ink
Blue ink can be removed with PicoWay's 1064 nm wavelength in Fitzpatrick skin types I-VI. Please be patient. It will take at least five or six sessions to remove your tattoo. Colored inks are more resistant to being broken down and dispersed than black ink. That's why your black ink is fading more quickly. The blue should fade with further treatments. Please be sure to use a board-certified dermatologist to remove your tattoo.
