How the PiQo4 Removes Tattoos
The PiQo4 is a laser tattoo removal in Shrewsbury that works by using laser heat energy to shatter ink particles, eventually erasing the ink altogether. Traditional nanosecond lasers used for tattoo removal depend mostly on pure heating of the tattoo pigment—but the ultra-short pulses of energy that the PiQo4 use go beyond the photothermal action of a traditional laser by also creating an intense photomechanical effect that shatters the target ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body, while leaving the surrounding tissue unheated. Other laser tattoo removal devices may require up to 20-30 treatments, while the PiQo4 can often clear tattoos in about 8-12 treatments (spaced 6-8 weeks apart). Additionally, while other tattoo removal lasers are limited to only lighter complexions, the PiQo4 can be used on all skin types. It also features improved clearance, even on difficult ink colors including blues, greens, and reds, as well as stubborn tattoos.
