The PicoWay is Health Canada approved for several conditions, including benign pigmented lesions and tattoo removal, as well as acne scars and wrinkles with the PicoWay Resolve handpieces.
Studio Kiku uses the PicoWay for:
Tattoo Removal (pigment)
Skin Rejuvenation (texture)
Acne Scars (texture & pigment)
laseR Tattoo Removal
The PicoWay can safely and effectively lighten, adjust or completely remove traditional tattoos, scalp micropigmentation and permanent makeup.
The PicoWay system uses ultra-short picosecond pulses that are in the trillionths of a second. Safe & effective for all skin types.
Picosecond pulses minimize the risk of side effects such as scarring and hypo/hyper pigmentation that can occur with slower, nanosecond (Q-switch) pulse lasers.
Safely treat a wide range of tattoos - even difficult-to-treat blue and green tattoos with the PicoWay.
We're able to safely remove microblading, ombré, powder, nano and/or combination brows without the need to shave the existing hair. Hair follicles will not be damaged.
The PicoWay is safe for any skin colour and it has been proven effective for the removal of almost any pigment including red, pink, brown and blue.
* The amount of treatments required to lighten or completely remove a tattoo varies from person to person depending on a number of variables.
The Picoway precisely targets unwanted pigment while preserving the surrounding tissue. Stimulate collagen production, helping to tone your skin and smooth your complexion.
The PicoWay is able to safely lighten dark spots, or benign pigmented lesions, and other skin discolourations including:
Sun spots (solar lentigines)
Liver spots (age spots)
Café-au-lait (brown patches)
Skin discolouration is common, yet treatable. It appears in many people on different areas of the skin. Some spots are related to excessive sun exposure.
Others, like melasma, can be caused by hormone changes, often impacting women following pregnancy. Many of these skin discolourations can be distressing and affect quality of life.
Wrinkles & Fine Lines
Wrinkles form naturally by skin aging and our dynamic expressions (like smiling and frowning).
As we get older, we lose collagen and elastin, so the wrinkles start to form permanent “ridges” that are visible even without the dynamic expressions.
The PicoWay Resolve stimulates collagen and elastin growth in the treated area, reducing the ridges that have formed over the years.
Acne scars are a common problem worldwide. It is estimated that over 650 million people are living with acne, and its effects often result in permanent acne scarring.
Many acne scars are caused by a lack of collagen in the skin.
The PicoWay Resolve is able to help build collagen and elastin, allowing for a visible improvement in mild to severe acne scarring.
* 4-6 treatments are required at 4 week intervals to achieve optimum results. Individual skin conditions vary the schedule. Maintenance treatments are also advised. Personal home care products will be recommended for the acceleration of the regenerative process.
