1. FDA-Cleared Treatment

The FDA applies stringent guidelines to approve a medical device because they have to check for potential side effects, claims, and patient satisfaction rates. The FDA has determined that PicoWay is both safe and effective for:

Using non-FDA-cleared methods for these treatments puts you at risk, but with the Candela PicoWay, you can rest assured that risks are minimal and benefits are favorable.

PicoWay may also reduce the appearance of:

  • Wrinkles
  • Sunspots
  • Other scarring
  • Freckles
  • Doctor-diagnosed melasma


2. Laser is Surprisingly Gentle

You may have seen traditional tattoo removal images before where the skin is left severely blistered and burned. PicoWay, on the other hand, is designed to maximize results while minimizing discomfort and eliminating long-term skin damage. Most people say it feels a lot like someone is popping a rubber band against their skin, which most people consider very tolerable for the short time it takes to complete the session.

3. Laser Removal Sessions are Quick

A session on average only lasts around five minutes. Five minutes of discomfort versus fifty minutes of tattooing is a lot more tolerable to handle. In most cases, tattoos can be removed in 10-12 sessions. Tattoo removal is broken up into sessions, because each time you visit the studio, the tech is targeting a new layer of ink to remove.

4. Completely Non-Invasive

Removery trusts the PicoWay laser because it targets tattoo ink while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed. The PicoWay laser operates in picoseconds, which is one-trillionth of a second. That short amount of time in the demise will leave the skin unharmed while breaking apart the ink particles for your body’s natural immune system to carry away.

Are PicoWay Results Permanent?

With the PicoWay laser, tattoo removal is permanent. Once you’ve undergone the treatment, you won’t have that tattoo ever again. Your body will naturally digest the ink and flush it out through your body’s immune system.

Does PicoWay Really Work? How Does It Work?

Unlike traditional laser tattoo removal, PicoWay uses three wavelengths to target all kinds of tattoo ink color. This allows the laser to target different colors within your skin while activating your own body’s natural immune system. In tattoo removal, this effectively and significantly speeds up the rate at which your own body normally degrades the tattoo ink, all while increasing collagen and elastin production to restore the appearance of your skin. It does all of this without burning the skin (as a traditional laser would). Learn more about how laser tattoo removal works with the basics of laser removal. \

Is the PicoWay Laser the Best for Tattoo Removal?

Yes, the PicoWay laser is the newest and most effective laser technology on the market. With FDA clearance, three wavelengths to target ink color across the spectrum, and peak power to effectively remove tattoos without causing harm to the surrounding tissue, the PicoWay laser is the best option for your tattoo removal needs. The PicoWay laser can also work on all skin types and has reduced the number of laser treatments from traditional removal methods. Still curious about the technology?
