The New 2022 Candela PicoWay laser

The highest performance Pico laser on the market, period.

Gold-standard performance delivered by TRUE Picosecond Lasers

Candela Picoway laser

We have upgraded our equipment to the absolute best and newest laser platform on the market today.

The 2022 Candela PicoWay  laser is the world’s most advanced and powerful laser technology, made in the U.S.A, it’s the Rolls Royce of lasers.

PicoWay is the leading tattoo removal technology and is our laser of choice. Measured by picoseconds – a trillionth of a second – the PicoWay device is around 13.33 times faster than other nanosecond devices. 

What does this mean for you? The faster the pulse, the less time the laser is actually interacting with your skin, which in turn leads to a faster treatment, a more comfortable treatment as well as a faster recovery time in that your skin is not subjected to the same levels of heat that are produced by a nanosecond device.

The PicoWay® system delivers high peak power and the shortest pulse durations for a non-thermal, photoacoustic effect that transforms skin from the inside out.  With this remarkably innovative picosecond laser, we can:

  • Significantly improve acne scars and wrinkles with a series of quick, 15- to 20- minute treatments, with low to no downtime.
  • Address a range of benign pigmented lesions 
  • Treat a wide range of tattoos. Even difficult-to-treat blue and green tattoos 
There’s been a lot of talk recently about the new PicoSure tattoo removal technology, and we’ve been asked whether we’re up for switching away from our Quanta Q Plus C. The answer? Nope!

It all comes down to physics.

In a nutshell, different wavelengths have different impacts on specific colors of tattoo ink within the skin. You need a series of different wavelengths to properly hit the depth of blacks, greens, yellows, reds, and other colors. There’s no such thing as a “do-it-all” wavelength. With the Quanta Q-Plus C, there are three TRUE wavelengths, whose energy represents the depth of the ink in your skin. These wavelengths have the strongest ability of any laser to break down inks. 1064: This wavelength hits black, which is the deepest and easiest to remove. 532: This wavelength hits red/orange, which is the most shallow in the skin. 694: This wavelength hits blue/green, which can be some of the toughest to remove.

The PicoSure uses one wavelength: 755. Why? In the early days of laser tattoo removal, 755 was the golden number. Although these lasers work, it doesn’t go deep enough to hit the blacks, let alone remove them. When it comes to blues and greens, the wavelength goes past them. PicoSure lasers also use a circular laser beam, whereas the Quanta uses a square beam. The benefit of the square beam is that skin damage is minimized because it stacks pulses precisely and evenly. A circular beam overlaps, damaging the skin.

Still not convinced? Science speaks for itself in a 2013 study by the Journal of the Laser and Health Academy in which researchers concluded that, The published literature and our preliminary results seem to indicate that current “picosecond” lasers are not expected to have a significantly better tattoo clearance effect in comparison with the “gold standard” Q-switched nanosecond tattoo lasers. … It is our opinion that top-of-the-line Q-switched nanosecond lasers will remain the devices of choice for tattoo removal.”
