PiQO4

The Most Powerful Pigment and Tattoo Removal Solution on the Market.

PiQo4 treats a wide range of pigment colors and its versatile energy matrix ensures effective shattering of the tattoo’s pigment. It also has the largest spot size on the market, which delivers faster treatments. With the PiQo4 you will be pleased with faster treatments and shorter sessions.

The PiQo4 offers up to 15 spot sizes, ranging from 2 mm to 15.5 mm. The 15 mm is the largest spot size in the industry and is almost four times bigger than the closest competitor. With the PiQo4, all skin types can be treated.

This enables treatment on all skin types, including darker skin, and reduces the chance of unwanted side effects.

 

The PiQo4 is a powerful Q-switch laser that allows us to treat not only tattoos but also stubborn pigmented lesions that other devices are not strong enough to treat effectively. When it comes to lentigines (brown spots) on the face, neck, décolleté, hands or shoulders that are larger in diameter than a pencil eraser, the Q-switch laser is the ideal treatment for removal of these unwanted spots. The laser itself is a high-intensity laser that is referred to as a cold laser because it can target and disrupt pigment or ink without heating up and damaging the surrounding tissue. The Q-switch laser uses nanosecond and picosecond technology. This means that the burst of energy is functioning at the rate of one billionth (Nano) or one trillionth (Pico) of a second. Depending on the amount of pigment present, the treatment causes very little discomfort and does not require any topical anesthetics. The treatment is also very quick and is safe for all skin types. Initially, there will be a bruising effect on the treated area. The post-care instructions include protecting the area from the sun and keeping it covered with an ointment such as Aquaphor. The bruising or redness typically clears with a week and can be concealed with makeup after the first 3-4 days. In most cases, only one treatment is needed, however for severe cases, 2-3 treatments may be needed. After the first week, the treated area may appear pink which can take 1-2 weeks to resolve as the skin progresses through its healing process.
