The PiQo4 laser is one of the newest and most powerful lasers on the market today, built almost exclusively for pigment augmentation and tattoo removal. It’s the first high-function 4-Wavelength laser.
What we use the PiQo4 laser for?
At Long Island Dermatology, we specialize in a number of laser skin resurfacing procedures. We provide hyperpigmentation removal services as well as tattoo removal with the PiQo4 laser.
How does it work?
The PiQo4 laser is the new gold-standard in tattoo removal. The laser works by focusing a powerful beam of energy below the skin’s surface to the dermis, the layer where a tattoo’s ink is placed. The laser energy fades the pigment or ink from within the skin. Causing your tattoo to fade.
How long does it take for tattoo removal?
The PiQo4 laser procedure is quite powerful therefore, sessions only need to be a few minutes depending on the size and color of your tattoo. After only one session you will notice a huge difference in your tattoo’s color and it will begin to fade. Depending on the level of ink and color of the tattoo, it will only require 4-6 sessions for complete tattoo removal.
Why the PiQo4?
Unlike other tattoo removal lasers, the PiQo4 is fast and efficient. The laser session can be done within a few minutes, and is relatively pain-free. Leaving patients without much redness, and little to no scabbing or blistering. Also, many other lasers require up to 10 sessions, and they often leave a visible outline of the tattoo and a noticeable scar. However, the PiQo4, can do an even better job, in almost half the sessions!
