How Effective is Laser Tattoo Removal for Colors?

July 4, 2019

If you have a colorful tattoo, you may be wondering whether you can get rid of it. After all, it’s far more difficult to remove a color tattoo than a black and white one. The good news is that laser tattoo removal is effective for colors, especially when the state-of-the-art PiQo4 laser is used. Let’s dive deeper into what you can expect from this laser.

How the PiQo4 Works

The PiQo4 is considered the most advanced laser available for tattoo removal. It uses a combination of picosecond and nanosecond laser energy to remove many types of tattoos, even those with multiple colors. The PiQo4 generates up to 10 times more energy than traditional tattoo removal lasers and uses four different laser wavelengths in the visible and near-infrared spectrum of light. So, what does this mean for you?

If you opt for laser tattoo removal with the PiQo4, you can enjoy faster and fewer treatments with minimal side effects. The high power of the PIQo4 creates a stronger “shock wave” that more effectively breaks up tattoo ink particles, which are then removed from the skin by the body’s natural immune system. The different laser wavelengths target a wide variety of tattoo colors. Clinical studies have proven that this revolutionary laser is powerful enough to treat multi-colored, dark, and complicated tattoos with greater efficiency.

Compared to traditional nanosecond-only lasers, the PiQo4 is more powerful and allows our expert team to treat nearly every color of tattoo ink, including green, blue, and red.

Good Candidates for Laser Tattoo Removal with the PiQo4

If you have a colorful tattoo that you’d like to get rid of quickly, you are likely a great candidate for the PiQo4 laser. You should be in general good health and able to commit to multiple treatments as well as avoiding sun exposure of the tattoo until your treatment period is over. Scheduling a consultation is a great way to find out whether the PiQo4 is right for you.

Benefits of the PiQo4 Laser

There are a variety of benefits you can enjoy if you pursue color tattoo removal with the PiQo4 laser. The most noteworthy benefit of the PiQo4 is that it requires fewer treatments than traditional lasers and leads to reduced side effects, with an extremely low likelihood of injury to the surrounding skin. Treatment can be performed in only a few minutes so you can easily fit it into your busy lifestyle.

I had 3 treatments with the PicoSure laser to remove 2 black ink tattoos. The tattoos are 20 years old and located on my ankle and lower back. I previously had 12 treatments with a qswitch laser at Cornell and almost gave up as the results were poor in my case. The PicoSure laser at Dr. Langdon’s office was the exact opposite experience. There is much less pain and discomfort with a much quicker recovery time than my Cornell qswitch experience. I hardly noticed any pain after the procedure and even the next day there was no need to address a wound like I did with the Cornell qswitch treatments. The results are unbelievable and the tattoos are now greatly diminished. I anticipate 2 more treatments to completely remove the visible elements of the ink. I also feel the treatment price is fair due to the high cost of this cutting edge laser. It has been a wonderful experience and I would recommend the Langdon center to anyone removing an unwanted tattoo. I was getting very discouraged in the past and the PicoSure laser treatments gave me faith that I will finally be able to remove my tattoos.
