LUMENIS PIQO4 LASER TATTOO has :
Highest pulse energy – up to twice that of competing systems. This is one of the factors that has contributed to owners of the PiQo4 laser stating that up to 40% fewer treatments are required for complete tattoo removal in comparison to their other laser machines.
The largest spot size available (up to 15.5mm) – larger spot sizes penetrate relatively deeper into the skin without having to use higher power settings, and this can reduce the risk of scarring with tattoo removal.
4 wavelengths available – studies show that 9 of the most common tattoo colors are absorbed by the 4 wavelengths available on the PiQo4. Other systems with fewer wavelengths (only one in some cases) cannot remove different colors as effectively.
The ability to fire nanosecond or picosecond pulses allows it to treat a bigger variety of skin concerns, as well as tattoos in various stages of removal. For example, in the early stages of tattoo removal, the ink particles are bigger and respond better to nanosecond pulses than picosecond pulses(see below for more information).
Homogenous beam profile – that is the laser beam over the entire spot size is more even which will lead to more even and consistent results.
Fractional handpiece – to treat conditions such as melasma, rejuvenate skin without downtime, and also can create channels for the infusion of skin products.

How PiQo4 Laser works
The PiQo4 laser is the most robust pigment and tattoo removal solution available today. Its effectiveness lies in a unique combination of pico (one trillionth of a second) and nano (a billionth of a second) energies for variable pulse duration. This advanced technology allows removal of a wide range of tattoo ink colors, as well as natural pigmentation spots.
Tattoos are considered permanent because ink particles are too big to be eliminated by the body’s natural healing processes. Laser treatment shatters pigments into finer particles that are harmlessly flushed by the immune system. All colors absorb and reflect specific spectra of light, so the PiQo4’s variable wavelengths are indispensable inefficient tattoo removal. Energy is delivered so fast that pigments are destroyed before heat is generated.
The same principle applies to the removal of natural brown and red pigmentation. Because the PiQo4 laser targets pigments at various depths, it gently and effectively addresses freckles, sun damage, melasma, and some birthmarks.
Your practitioner will provide guidelines for before and aftercare, as well as the approximate time of the session.
During your session, you will hear the laser emits as loud, audible popping sound, then feel the heat over the general area of the skin. The treated area will feel as if it were sunburned; tight and dry.
