Though tattoos have been around for ages, this type of body art has become the new “in” thing in the last few years. Where there is a prevalence of tattoos, we also see a high interest in tattoo removal. Sometimes, the tattoo didn’t turn out as expected. Sometimes, the tattoo that once meant something special no longer feels relevant. Whatever the reason for wanting the ink to disappear, there needs to be a viable solution readily available. We believe we have it in our Austin office.
The PiQo4 Laser
Laser tattoo removal has been in developmental stages for several years. Laser tattoo removal has been in its developmental stages for several years. Every so often, we are gifted with innovative technology that improves the process in some way. The PiQo4 is a prime example. This new laser device for tattoo removal incorporates the maximum number of wavelengths of light (four) meaning it has the highest rate of contact with various ink colors. The objective with laser tattoo removal is to break up ink particles as safely, quickly, and comfortably as possible, and this device enables us to do that.
Why Choose PiQo4 Laser Tattoo Removal in Austin
There are several options in laser tattoo removal. Here are some of the reasons why more patients are choosing to work with a provider who uses the PiQo4 device:
- Greater efficiency. Research indicates that the PiQo4 laser achieves optimal results in half the number of treatments as other leading devices.
- Maximum penetration. “Spot size” matters when it comes to laser tattoo removal. The PiQo4’s coverage area is one of the largest, approximately 4 times that of other devices. Because the area of penetration is so expansive, laser energy is capable of reaching greater depth, which increases the power to disrupt ink particles.
- Skin safety. One of the important aspects of laser treatments is skin safety. When we are targeting unwanted ink, we also need to protect surrounding tissue as well as the tissue into which ink has embedded. While the PiQo4 uses 4 wavelengths of light, it is also gentle in its intensity, which reduces the risk of discoloration, blistering, and scarring.
- Extended Reach. The primary challenge in laser tattoo removal has been how to affect a wide variety of hues. Certain colors, as well as older ink, have been notoriously difficult to remove. The PiQo4 is effective on nine of the colors most often used in tattoos. Furthermore, this device is safe and effective for all skin types.
