At Detail Tattoo Removal, we have state-of-the art laser tattoo removal technology with laser precision to within millimetres so you can have the confidence you'll get what you want when it comes to selective removal.

The PicoWay Laser

The PicoWay laser has very precise control down to 2mm spot sizes (maximum 10mm), so it is possible to remove elements of the tattoo without affecting the rest.

The PicoWay is 4.5 times more powerful in shattering the pigment, and creates smaller fragments that are easier for the body to absorb and remove.  The increase in efficiency in pigment removal means that the great results are achieved with fewer treatments, and the treatments can be closer together, reducing the overall time and total cost required to achieve the desired results.  

Once the skin has completely healed it is safe to tattoo over the same area.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of tattoo removal treatments will vary depending on the size and complexity of the tattoo, and the number of other factors. The average number of treatments needed to achieve total clearance with the PicoWay laser (PicoSecond laser) is 4-6 for black tattoos and other colours are the same amount of time or slightly longer. If you are unhappy with the results after 6 treatments, additional treatments will be free of charge (black ink only). The number of treatments needed for a traditional Nanosecond laser is usually between 5 and 15.

How long do I need to wait between treatments?

The PicoWay laser system has a significant advantage over traditional lasers or NanoSecond lasers in that because the pulse time is so much shorter, there is little or no damage to surrounding tissue. This means that recovery time between treatments is shorter (2 to 4 weeks) compared to other lasers (6 to 8 weeks).
