Watch: PiQo4 Laser Tattoo Removal Treatment
Do you have an unwanted tattoo that you want to get rid of?
Trying to cover up or hide a tattoo is cumbersome and tattoo removal creams are ineffective. Laser tattoo removal is the most effective way to get rid of your tattoo. At Westlake Dermatology, we are proud to offer today’s most advanced tattoo removal laser, the PiQo4.
PiQo4 uses a combination of pico and nano energies to eradicate tattoo ink from the skin. The laser uses four different wavelengths in order to apply up to 10 times more energy than traditional tattoo removal lasers. More power means tattoos are fully removed in fewer, faster treatments.
Here is a real-time PiQo4 laser treatment performed by Dr. Daniel Friedmann:
The video illustrates how long a typical PiQo4 treatment session may take. Your sessions may be shorter or longer depending on several variables of the tattoo, including the type of ink used, the size of the tattoo, the age of the tattoo, and its location on the body.
Pain during treatments is relatively minimal, most patients say they experience mild discomfort similar to having their skin snapped with a rubber band. There is no pain or discomfort once the treatment is finished. A topical numbing cream or injectable lidocaine can be used to help make the patient more comfortable during the session if needed.
