How PiQo4 works
PiQo4TM is a powerful and versatile system for the effective treatment of a wide range of skin pigmentation problems – from pigmented lesions such as birthmarks and lentigines, through vascular lesions, to tattoos in a variety of colors. Its versatile energy matrix, along with the large spot size, ensures effective shattering of pigment deposits with faster, more efficient treatment times. Featuring unsurpassed versatility, PiQo4 is ideally suited for treating not only tattoo removal, but also for general skin pigmentation including toning through treatment of pigmented lesions, resurfacing and whitening. Clinical studies have shown that the optimal method for shattering pigment particles is to treat them with both Nano and Picosecond laser pulses. PiQo4 uses PICO & NANO, high energy, deep reach and 4 wavelengths to shatter pigment.
What we love about it
PiQo4TM has high power output and the largest spot size on the market, which can
effectively reach deep pigments in both new and old tattoos. It's the most powerful advanced laser technology for tattoo removal and pigmentation. We are the first to bring this technology into the local market.
What to expect
Location matters: The closer the tattoo is to the heart the better circulation, therefore better results. More colorful tattoos and greater surface area usually require more treatments. Amateur tattoos are typically not as deep as professional ones, and are easier to remove. Immediately after treatment, you will see a whitish "frosting" over the tattoo. The skin will often swell in the area of the tattoo, accompanied by mild redness. The frosting, swelling and redness will resolve in a matter of hours. The tattoo may crust or blister as the body repairs itself. This will resolve naturally. The tattoo will fade gradually in the following weeks as your body clears the ink.
How many treatments?
The number of treatments needed depend on the tattoo itself, the area of the body and the background skin color. A treatment series can range from 2 sessions, up to 10 sessions, and are conducted 6-8 weeks apart.
Possible side effects
Persons known to form skin keloids may be more prone to scarring after any skin trauma, including laser administration to the skin. Persons with dark skin may be at increased risk of hypopigmentation. Hypo and hyper-pigmentation are a common risk of treatment. Treatment of lesions or treatment near lesions that are known to be or suspected of being cancerous are contraindicated. Any treatment around the eyes is contraindicated due to the risk of laser light induced eye injury. Immediately after administration of the laser energy to the skin, purpura, erythema, and slight edema may be visible. The patient may experience pruritus and a sunburnlike sensation. Possible long-term potential adverse effects include hypo-or hyper-pigmentation, skin texture change, and scarring, although these effects rarely are manifested.
