While making a tattoo is an art; removing it is even more so. There are tattoos with inks of various colors, injected at different depths or with different compositions.

Therefore, the professionals (doctors) at Ribe Clinic Barcelona remove tattoos by individualizing the treatment in each case and even varying parameters it in each session. For example, as the layers of ink are being removed, the parameters of laser must be changed. Normally, the patient does not know the composition of the ink or the depth of his tattoo. As such, tattoo removal is always a challenge and you must be in professional hands.

Is it possible to erase a tattoo at Ribe Clinic Barcelona, ​​with good aesthetic results and without a scar?

It is possible to completely remove a tattoo. Some tattoos are monochrome and with little ink, so it is easy to remove these types of tattoos, however sometimes, tattoos have several colors and it is more complex to erase them. All tattoos will require several treatments for optimal results.

Only an experienced doctor with the use of the latest laser technology will achieve the best possible aesthetic result when it comes to destroying the ink to erase each tattoo and with safety for the skin.

What is the best option to remove a tattoo?

 

The best option to remove tattoos is with laser. And the best laser technology is the one that emits light in ultra short pulses: in picoseconds.

PicoWay is the latest and most technologically accurate picosecond laser to remove tattoos, faster, with fewer sessions, more sensitive for all colors and with minimal risk and discomfort.

Before the appearance of the PicoWay laser, the treatments to remove tattoos were not always satisfactory because they did not erase the tattoos to 100% and could leave, in some occasions, scars. In addition, they were even less effective in color tattoos.

At Ribe Clinic Barcelona we use Picoway laser with the picosecond technology.

 

What should you know about Picoway laser to remove tattoos?

• Greater effectiveness: it is the best laser removing tattoos of any color, because it combines the short pulse of PS technology with the specific wavelength for each color.·

• It leaves a perfect skin since it is the safest laser. It has the lowest risk of side effects, because it can work at less power with the same result, minimizing the heat and the photothermic effect on the skin.·

• It allows tattooing again the skin at the same spot (cover-up) after one month.·

• We can perform sessions every 15 days, without affecting the skin. However, depending on the case, we recommend every month.·

• The laser treatment can be performed in summer.·

• It is a less painful treatment comparing to other laser because it works with less power and very short pulses (effective and safe).

What PicoWay tattoo removal laser does?

The laser light is targeted at colors of the unwanted tattoo matching the specific laser wavelength in ultra short picoseconds pulses. These ultra short pulses break up ink particles into very small particles making them easier for the body to carry away.

This laser produces less photothermal effect than traditional lasers, which means a more comfortable and safer application

  • The Picoway laser has 3 wavelengths that cause the photons of light emitted by the laser to be more selectively absorbed by all the colors of the ink.
  • Thus, the 1064nm wavelength is for dark blue and black colors, the 532nm for red, yellow and orange colors and the 785nm for green and blue colors.
  • Picoway from Syneron Candela is the best laser to remove multicolored and difficult tattoos.
