MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwired - September 20, 2016) - The Skin and Laser Surgery Center of McLean, Virginia has just announced their latest development in tattoo removal techniques: PicoWay laser technology.
Traditional laser tattoo removal has some important shortcomings:
- The inability to effectively break down ink particles
- Limited treatment of certain tattoo colors and types
- Discomfort during treatments
- The risk of hyper and hypopigmentation, particularly when used on darker skin tones
With PicoWay's unique laser technology system, the doctors at the Skin and Laser Surgery Center obtain faster, better results in a shorter amount of time and with less discomfort.
PicoWay utilizes unique picosecond laser technology to deliver fast, comfortable treatments. Energy is delivered to the targeted ink in ultra-short pulses that are so fast, they're measured in picoseconds -- that's one trillionth of a second.
By using PicoWay tattoo removal, Dr. Bajoghli and his team at The Skin and Laser Surgery Center can address the widest range of tattoos. The ultra-fast, high-power laser delivers such concentrated energy that even the smallest of ink particles are shattered, making it easier for the body to rid itself of the tattoo ink.
Treatments with the PicoWay system are faster, more comfortable, and come with fewer risks than those performed with previous technology.
An estimated 20% of adults in US have tattoos, and over 25% of them feel that these markings do not fit their current image and would like to have them removed.
The doctors and staff are, once again, pleased to offer the latest technology to benefit their patients. Individuals in the Northern Virginia area who have tattoos that no longer fit their liking or lifestyle now have a resource to have them removed quickly, more fully, and with less discomfort than ever before.
PicoWay laser technology works great for patients suffering from other skin pigmentation difficulties or skin irregularities as well.
Since completing his training in dermatology and Mohs surgery in 2001, Amir Bajoghli, MD has been active in the practice of dermatology. He was named Top Dermatologist and Mohs Surgeon in the Washingtonian Magazine from 2005 - 2012, as well as in the Northern VA magazine.
