The Science Behind Picoway Laser: How Its Revolutionizing Tattoo Removal!

At GloUp Beauty Studio, we're thrilled to offer the cutting-edge Picoway laser treatment for tattoo removal. But what makes the Picoway laser stand out? In this blog, we'll dive into the technology and mechanisms behind this remarkable device, explaining how it effectively removes tattoos with precision and care.

Understanding Tattoo Ink and Skin

Before we delve into the Picoway laser, it's essential to understand how tattoos work. When you get a tattoo, ink is injected into the dermis, the second layer of skin. The ink particles are too large for your body's immune system to remove, which is why tattoos are permanent. Effective tattoo removal requires breaking these ink particles into smaller pieces that your body can naturally eliminate.

The Technology Behind Picoway

Picoway is a picosecond laser, which means it delivers laser energy in trillionths of a second. This ultra-fast delivery is the key to its effectiveness. Let's explore the core components and mechanisms of the Picoway laser:

Picosecond Pulse Duration

Traditional lasers used for tattoo removal, such as Q-switched lasers, emit energy in nanoseconds (billionths of a second). While effective, they can sometimes cause more discomfort and require more sessions. The Picoway laser, on the other hand, uses picosecond pulses, which are 1000 times shorter. This ultra-short pulse duration allows the laser to shatter ink particles more efficiently and with less heat, reducing discomfort and the risk of skin damage.

Photoacoustic Effect

The Picoway laser employs a photoacoustic effect to break down ink particles. When the laser energy is delivered in such a short burst, it creates a strong pressure wave. This pressure wave shatters the ink particles into tiny fragments without generating excessive heat. These smaller particles are then absorbed and eliminated by your body's immune system.

The Picoway Experience

Fewer Sessions

Thanks to its advanced technology, the Picoway laser typically requires fewer sessions compared to traditional lasers. This is a significant advantage for those looking to remove their tattoos more quickly.

Minimal Discomfort

The picosecond pulses create less heat, which translates to less discomfort during the procedure. Many clients report that Picoway treatments are more comfortable than older laser treatments.

Reduced Risk of Side Effects

The precision and efficiency of the Picoway laser mean there's a lower risk of side effects such as scarring and hyperpigmentation. The surrounding skin remains largely unaffected, making it a safer option for many clients.


The Picoway laser represents a significant advancement in tattoo removal technology. Its picosecond pulse duration, multiple wavelengths, and photoacoustic effect work together to shatter ink particles more effectively and comfortably. At GloUp Beauty Studio, we're proud to offer this state-of-the-art treatment to help you achieve the clear, ink-free skin you desire.
