How many sessions are required for tattoo removal?
By means of Pico lasers, the number of sessions in tattoo removal is reduced and the treatment results are taken faster. In this process, which is carried out at 4-6 week intervals, the number of applications can vary according to the tattoo or spot; however, the application mostly shows its effects in 3-4 sessions.
Does tattoo removal leave scars?
A very slight scar may remain, particularly in areas prone to scarring, such as the chest, upper arm and ankle, but this possibility is very low. With Pico Lasers, it is usually possible to remove tattoos without a scar.
How is the permanent make-up removed?
Permanent makeup type tattoos are one of the most difficult tattoo types to be removed with existing laser systems. Metallic paints used in permanent makeup can become darker and turn into black instead of being wiped after the current laser systems are applied. As with all other tattoo types, PicoWay is conveniently used for permanent makeup removal.
How is the PicoWay laser applied?
While removing the tattoo with PicoWay, the healthy skin around it is not damaged. The system starts to process as the laser light turns into heat and breaks down the pigments. The broken pigments are removed from the cell and absorbed by the cells of the immune system of the person.
Where should the tattoo removal process be carried out?
Tattoo removal must be carried out under the supervision of a physician and under hygienic conditions. It is also necessary to underline the importance of the know-how and experience of the physician who performs this process.
Laser tattoo removal
Getting a tattoo is a difficult process. But it’s even harder to get the tattoo removed. Fortunately, by means of the advancing laser technologies, this difficult process can be handled both in a shorter time and more painlessly.
Until recently, the removal of tattoos with traditional methods have led to painful and unsatisfactory results. Sometimes, with the help of surgical interventions, the tattooed skin part was cut out and sometimes tattoo removal was done with sandpaper or chemical acids.
By means of the developing laser technologies, it has become easier to remove tattoos today. The tattoo is created by trapping color pigments that cannot be digested by the cells of our immune system into the skin. The effect of the laser is to separate these color pigments from other structures of the skin, selectively, exposing them to an intense heat and energy bombardment and turning them into dusts. In this way, they can be digested by the cells of our immune system and removed. As a result of this application, the tattoo is removed.
Tattoo removal methods: Pico Lasers
The type of laser to be used in tattoo removal is very important. Today, devices called Pico Laser destroy the paint pigment in a much shorter period of time, such as one trillion of a second, without damaging the cell. This means removal of the tattoo in much less sessions than previous lasers did. PicoWay, which contains two different wavelength laser lights, provides the single-system removal of tattoos in different shades, black and red, which are used in more than 90% of tattoos and yellow, light blue and blue, with ultra short pulses. With ultra short pulses, PicoWay goes up to such powerful energies that it turns into a mechanical effect and breaks the pigments that make up the spot or tattoo into smaller pieces than the lasers used to date; it is much easier for our body to get rid of these particles.
