Plastic Surgery Associates of Santa Rosa is now offering tattoo removal using PicoWay.
The PicoWay laser promises fewer treatments compared to treatments using traditional tattoo removal lasers, with better overall results according to Dr. Francisco Canales and Dr. Heather Furnas.
According to the doctors, the PicoWay laser tattoo removal technique is different from earlier methods. It uses intense, ultra-short pulses of laser energy to accurately shatter tattoo ink underneath the skin. The pressure applied by the precise PicoWay laser is so great, that the targeted ink is immediately eradicated. The remaining ink particles can then, over time, be safely and effectively metabolized by the body.
