Questions & Answers

How long does it take to remove a tattoo?

The length of PicoWay tattoo removal treatment varies depending on factors such as the size, location, and color of the tattoo, as well as your skin type and overall health. However, in general, PicoWay Laser is known for its efficiency and can often remove tattoos faster than other methods. Many patients see results after just a few sessions, and complete removal can typically be achieved within 4 to 12 treatments.

Does it hurt?

Although generally well-tolerated, PicoWay Laser tattoo removal can cause some discomfort during the treatment. This is why we will use numbing cream prior to your session. It is included as part of your treatment with Synergy. Penthrox inhaler pain and anxiety relief is also available at an additional fee.

Are there any side effects?

PicoWay is a safe and effective laser treatment with minimal side effects. However, as with any medical procedure, there is a risk of side effects. Some common side effects of Picoway laser treatment for tattoo removal include temporary redness, swelling, and blistering in the treated area. Some patients may also experience temporary lightening or darkening of the skin, scabbing, or itching. In rare cases, there may be permanent scarring or changes in skin texture.
