Anyone heard of this laser called PicoWay?
I will attach the link here:
http://www.theplasticsur...s/picoway-tattoo-removal
So apparantly, it's a new device as the advert states that it's the first of it's kind to arrive in Ontario, Canada. It's tattoo removal however, it states that it works on pigmented skin such as freckles, age spots, birthmarks, lentigines, melasma, brown spots. I was just wondering if anyone has heard anything about this machine and it's effects. I have no tattoos but am interested to see if it works on pigmented/freckle/ brown spots on the face (as it states). Just thought I'd post this before I decide to make an appointment to check it out.

the pico lasers are strong. they will and can remove all pigment if the setting is high enough. expect to blister.


i had it done on a tattoo.

This sounds like over kill for freckles etc. IPL is good for brown pigment , ive had IPL for broken caps but its always worked best on brown pigment. It turns them dark brown and then they drop off. I find red pigment in the skin (broken caps/diffuse redness) more difficult to remove.

I had YAG once and it caused blisters and scarring so be careful with strong lasers. You need a very experienced operator.
