You want your tattoo removed or faded in the shortest time possible, with the least amount of pain and downtime, then you have come to the right place. PicoWay is the most powerful and fastest laser in the world and the only system that has 3 wave lengths to treat all tattoos including colour. At Detail Tattoo Removal, we are so confident with our PicoWay – Picosecond laser tattoo removal technology that we guarantee to remove any black tattoo in 8 sessions or less, otherwise we will continue to treat the tattoo at no additional cost after 8 treatments.

How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

Medical grade lasers remove tattoos by delivering specific wavelengths of laser light into the skin in very short bursts of picosecond or nanosecond pulses of energy, creating a shockwave that fragments the ink and allows the body’s immune system to attack and eliminate the dispersed ink particles. The body’s immune system removes the fragmented ink to fade the tattoo. The number of treatments are determined by the laser system used and the person’s immune system response.

The clinicians at Detail Tattoo Removal Sydney are responsible for explaining this process thoroughly during the free consultation. Each expertly trained and accredited clinician will assess your skin type and adjust the laser to provide the optimum setting to deliver the results you expect with minimum discomfort.

What is the difference between Picosecond and Nanosecond?

Nanosecond Q-Switch Nd:YAG laser system produces a lot of heat in the tissue during treatment. The recovery time for Q-Switch laser system is between treatments is 8 to 10 weeks vs 2 to 4 weeks for PicoWay Picosecond Laser System. This means you can do not have to wait for as long between treatments.

Nanosecond Q-Switch laser system do not shatter the pigment particles as small as PicoWay Picosecond Lser System. On average to clear a tattoo you need between 10 to 15 treatments for Nanosecond Q-Switch Laser System vs 6 to 8 treatments for PicoWay Picosecond Laser System.

Less time between treatments plus less treatments mean the PicoWay can remove your tattoo in between 4 – 6 months vs 18 – 24 months with Q-Switch. PicoWay technology makes nanosecond Q-Switch Nd:YAG laser system obsolete.


What is the difference between PicoWay and PicoSure machines?

Picosure was one the first Picosecond tattoo removal machine on the market. But the PicoWay was released with superior technology that delivered actual picosecond speeds and has improved on this technology in three key areas:

* PICOSURE WARNING: US Dermologist brings class action against Cynosure (maker of the Picosure) for selling a laser tattoo system that did not eliminate or remove tattoos.


Photoacoustic vs Photothermal

High peak power means greater efficacy and safety.The 450ps pulse of the PicoWay delivers 4.5 times more photoacoustic effect than the lower energy pulse of other picosecond lasers. The 750ps pulse of the other laser generates mostly thermal energy delivered over a longer period of time. The thermal energy is the main source of side effects and lower efficacy.

How much do laser tattoo removal treatments cost?

The cost of your treatment will depend on many factors including size of the tattoo, skin type and age.

Why do some tattoo removal clinics quote 15+ sessions?

Hopefully you are not considering IPL removal as an option to remove your tattoo. This technology is not designed to remove tattoos and will lead to scarring and skin damage. The reason for so many treatment sessions is that the clinic is using older, slower and less powerful Nd:YAG Q-Switched technology. As you will see from the graphics on this page, there is a significant difference between nanosecond and picosecond devices. As well there is still a significant difference between the PicoWay and PicoSure devices. PicoWay is the only system to choose to remove your tattoos quickly and completely. Choosing an inferior system will cost you more in the long term as the overall costs will end up more expensive with more treatments required than choosing the PicoWay.

Our PRICE MATCH POLICY also gives you the confidence that you are getting the most competitive price for the most effective Picosecond Laser system in the world.

What is the downtime after a treatment?

The time between treatments at Detail Tattoo Removal will be significantly less than most other clinics. We have got this down to two weeks between sessions in the past, but this will depend on many factors.
