Whether you have been thinking of updating the canvas on your tattoo or completely removing it, we are here to help! The Piqo4 by Lumenis is the most advanced state of the art laser tattoo removal treatment.
In this video, watch Dr. Mejia perform an initial tattoo removal session on a patient who is actually going to get another one of the same due to the first one not being done correctly.
This powerful laser tattoo removal was unveiled at the American Academy of Dermatology’s annual meeting in February, 2018 and is the only laser in the United States that has four wavelengths and the ability to deliver both nanosecond and picosecond pulses.
Pico Fractional, is a new PiQo4™ hand-piece, which introduces a fractional laser beam based on photoacoustics. As opposed to traditional laser treatments, which use thermal energy, PicoFractional creates thousands of microscopic treatment zones within the skin, and utilizes the shattering effect of sound waves to create tiny holes deep within the dermis, known as Laser Induced Optical Breakdown (LIOB).
This pigment removal works on four wavelengths shattering the most popular ink colors.
Since each pigment color absorbs a specific wavelength, PiQo4 offers 4 wavelengths in order to treat the broadest range of pigment/tattoo colors, on the widest range of skin types. Its four wavelengths – 1064nm, 532nm, 650nm and 585nm – target 9 of the most frequently used tattoo colors ranging from light orange to dark black. With PiQo4 you can erase the rainbow.
Check out this video by Lumenis comparing a competitor product. Notice the speed using the Piqo4 at 53 seconds vs. 3 minute, 51 seconds.
