Does it hurt to remove the tattoo?

Tattoo removal with the use of a laser has for a long time been associated with pain. We are now happy to announce that this time is over. PicoWay‘s ultra short pulses optimise the delivery of energy to the targeted ink particles ensuring the ink is effectively treated, while the least possible amount of heat gets transferred to the skin. Since PicoWay’s pulses are fast, you’ll feel minimal discomfort throughout the procedure.

To make the treatment more comfortable, we use a machine that blows cold air (-30°C) on the tattoo during the treatment.

Pain is perceived differently from person to person, and we all have different pain thresholds. We can therefore offer different types of pain relief to our customers, in consultation with our doctors.

“On a scale from 1 to 10 I felt the pain was only a 2. It was more painful to get the tattoo than removing it.”
