PicoWay® - The Clear Solution for Pigmented Lesions & Tattoos.

PicoWay is a remarkably innovative dual wavelength picosecond laser from Syneron Candela, the most trusted name in aesthetic lasers. PicoWay enables removal of multi-colored tattoos, recalcitrant tattoos and begin pigmented lesions on any skin type.

PicoWay’s unique mode of action is based on delivering ultra-short picosecond pulses of energy to
the tissue. These bursts of energy create a photo-mechanical impact which breaks up the tattoo ink
or pigmentation into smaller, more easily eliminated particles.



  • Dual wavelengths – 1064 nm & 532 nm wavelengths in one laser system
  • Treat the widest range of tattoos – 2 wavelengths to treat most tattoo colors & types, including recalcitrant tattoos 
  • Treat dermal and epidermal pigmented lesions including Melasma – Large spot sizes enable deep penetration when needed
  • Highest peak power – For effective energy over the broadest range of spot sizes
  • Shortest picosecond pulses – 40% shorter picosecond pulses mean effective, yet lower energy for less risk of side effects

Why choose PicoWay Technology rather than Q-Switch?

Scientists acknowledge that the shorter the pulse duration, the higher the efficiency for converting laser energy into the mechanical stress needed to fracture particles into small fragements. The smaller the fragment, the easier it is for the body to effectively remove it.
Q-Switch technology requires numerous treatment sessions, causes significant discomfort during
treatment and, in many cases, incompletely removes tattoos and pigmented lesions. 

Picosecond technology, has ultra-short pulse durations, 100 times shorter than Q-switch lasers (nanosecond), and in the trillionths of a second. PicoWay is the answer physicians are looking for to combat the reluctance patients may have to treat tattoos or more complex pigmented lesions.

A nanosecond is the SI unit of time (nanosecond = 10−9 or 1/1,000,000,000 s) 1 trillionth of a second) or 0000 000 001 seconds.

A picosecond is the SI unit of time (picosecond = 10−12 or 1/1,000,000,000,000s) 1 part trillion seconds) or 0000 000 000 001 seconds.

Treatment Indications

  • Melasma
  • Epidermal Pigmented lesion : freckles, age spots, Lentigo, Indigo...
  • Dermal pigmented lesions: blue indigo, melasma... 
  • Tatto Removal (3D-4D), multi-colored tattoos
  • Skin Rejuvenation



“The ultra-short PicoWay technology requires lower energies and yields faster clinical results than traditional Q-switched lasers. The Nd:YAG wavelength can safely treat a wider variety of skin types and, with the reduced energy, minimizes thermal injury to the skin. I believe that the PicoWay will further revolutionize tattoo removal.”

"I used generation 1064nm wavelength laser was 13 years. I love this wavelength because it is very suitable for Vietnamese skin. PicoWay well have this wavelength, but with picosecond pulse, instead of nanosecond pulses in previous generation, has created a very high peak power is so strong treatment and more efficiently than before, especially with the treatment tattoos on Vietnamese skin. Laser PicoWay is efficiency, bring more modern advantages for patients "
