The PicoWay Laser is an FDA-approved picosecond laser that treats acne scars, wrinkles, benign pigmented lesions (dark spots) and tattoo removal. PicoWay delivers high-powered, extremely short pulses of light one picosecond, or one trillionth of a second, in length. This is an important distinction between PicoWay and other lasers as it allows for greater ablation of tattoo pigment and hyperpigmentation. The PicoWay laser is able to affect only the deep layers of skin, leaving the outer layer of the skin intact. Because it doesn’t heat the outer layer of skin, there are little to no side effects and no downtime. The PicoWay Laser can treat unwanted tattoo pigment, excess melanin that causes dark spots, or areas that can be smoothed and rejuvenated with collagen, like acne scars and wrinkles.

This is the treatment you’ve been waiting for.
Say goodbye to everything you don’t want, and hello to fresh, beautiful skin.

PicoWay Machine

PicoWay is an FDA-approved, state-of-the-art, 3 wavelength picosecond laser from Candela, the most trusted name in aesthetic lasers. Boasting innovative full-beam & fractional capabilities, PicoWay delivers exceptionally short picosecond pulses of energy to treat acne scars, wrinkles, dark spots, and unwanted tattoos – all with no downtime.

PicoWay’s unique action creates a photoacoustic impact — it heats the deep tissues while avoiding the outer layer of skin — virtually eliminating downtime and residual scarring. The revolutionary picosecond laser bursts shatter hyperpigmentation marks and tattoo pigment into smaller, more easily eliminated particles. These smaller particles allow even difficult-to-remove areas of color to be removed from the skin.

Technologies Used

PicoWay Laser
Uses 3 ultra-strong wavelengths, 532nm, 785nm & 1064nm in picosecond bursts to shatter pigment and repair aging and scarred skin.

PicoWay Laser Treatment

PicoWay Laser treatment offers you exceptional results with little discomfort and no downtime. PicoWay can help you hit reset on a regretful tattoo, turn back time on aging skin, and help you have the even complexion you want. Unlike other ablative lasers, PicoWay treats skin concerns with almost no discomfort and no downtime, making it an obvious choice for laser skin rejuvenation, hyperpigmentation removal, acne and acne scar healing, and tattoo removal.

What is a PicoWay treatment?

PicoWay Laser is a safe and minimally-invasive treatment that can be used anywhere on the body to remove tattoo ink or improve the tone and texture of your skin. PicoWay is a picosecond laser, meaning it uses bursts of light one picosecond in length. A picosecond is equivalent to one trillionth of a second, making this laser exceptionally fast and far more effective than traditional q-switch lasers.

What does a PicoWay Laser treatment look like?

When you arrive at your treatment, your technician will remove your makeup or thoroughly cleanse your treatment area. The PicoWay Laser is a handheld device that emits bursts of light over the treatment area. Your technician will carefully trace the laser along the treatment area. If needed, a topical anesthetic will be applied to help control any discomfort and ensure your treatment is pain-free.

Is PicoWay safe? What are the side effects and contraindications?

PicoWay treatments are very safe. Even those with darker skin tones can use PicoWay for all its listed benefits. The laser may cause mild side effects such as redness and slight swelling. Contraindications for PicoWay are few, and your technician can help you decide if PicoWay is the right laser for you.

Who’s a good candidate for a PicoWay treatment?

PicoWay is safe for all skin types and tones, so as long as you meet the criteria for treatment, you’re an excellent candidate for PicoWay.

If you’re planning to use PicoWay to remove an unwanted tattoo, please note that PicoWay is able to remove even the most stubborn ink colors: blue, green, purple, teal, turquoise, and various shades of green can all be dissolved.

How do you prepare?

You don’t need to do anything special to prepare for your treatment. If you can remove makeup prior to treatment, please do.


PicoWay Laser treatments have low to no downtime. Most people can return to their regular activities directly after treatment. You may need a bandage to keep the treatment area dry for a few days following tattoo removal. You must protect yourself from the sun following your treatment, and use an SPF of at least 30 if you’ll be outside.

How soon can you see results from a PicoWay treatment?

You’ll be able to see some immediate results following your treatment. Your results will continue to improve for 2-3 weeks following your treatment. You may require more than one treatment to see optimal results. Your aesthetician will help create a plan of care and speak to you about touch up treatments, if needed.

How long will the results last?

In some cases, results from the PicoWay may be permanent. Tattoo removal and some hyperpigmentation removal may be permanent. Scar removal may also provide permanent results. Anti aging and active acne treatments may not offer permanent results, and you may need ongoing care as often as once a month to keep your symptoms at bay.

What’s the difference between PicoWay and Q-Switch lasers?

The primary difference between a Q-Switch (nanosecond) and PicoWay (picosecond) laser is the speed at which each device projects its bursts of energy. Picosecond lasers deliver energy at a much faster rate. The PicoWay is a medical-grade, FDA-approved laser. Its exceptionally fast pulse allows it to shatter tattoo pigment or hyperpigmentation into much smaller pieces than traditional lasers, making it much easier for the body to digest and remove the pigment.
