How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

PicoWay treats multi-colored tattoos on different skin types. PicoWay utilizes unique picosecond laser technology to deliver fast, comfortable treatments – more than any other traditional laser tattoo removal solution available*. Unlike traditional lasers, PicoWay delivers energy to the targeted ink in ultra-short pulses that are so fast, they’re measured in picoseconds — that’s one trillionth of a second!

The Difference from PicoWay Tattoo Removal Treatment

Few Treatments: FDA cleared for a wide range of tattoos, PicoWay offers better results in few treatments for different skin types.
Fast Results: With it’s ultra-fast delivery of concentrated, high-power energy, PicoWay will shatter even tiny ink particles making it easier for the body to clear the tattoo ink.
Minimized Risk: PicoWay’s ultra-short pulses also optimize the delivery of energy to the targeted ink particles ensuring the ink is effectively treated, while the least amount of heat gets transferred into the skin.
Minimal Discomfort: Since PicoWay’s pulses are fast, you’ll feel minimal discomfort throughout the procedure.

Does laser tattoo removal hurt?

Tattoo Removal FAQ

There is some discomfort involved in laser tattoo removal treatment, though the level of discomfort varies depending on the area of the body being treated and the skin sensitivity of the individual patient. The sensation is commonly compared to the feeling of pops of hot bacon grease hitting your skin or being snapped by a rubber band. Dr. Rueckl goes to great lengths to ensure that his patients are comfortable during treatment. Both topical and local anesthetic are available and can be applied before treatment to minimize discomfort and make laser treatment virtually painless.

How many treatments will I need?

The exact number of laser treatments needed varies depending on the size, age, depth, and complexity of the tattoo. Homemade or amateur tattoos respond more quickly to treatment than professional tattoos. Fox example, amateur tattoos can often be removed in as few as 1 or 2 treatments, while professional tattoos may take 6 – 10 or more treatments to achieve maximum results.

What can I expect after laser tattoo removal treatment?

Laser removal is usually performed in intervals spaced at least 4-6 weeks apart to allow the area to heal between treatments. Immediately following treatment, the laser treated skin will look white. This is soon replaced by redness and then scabbing. It is important to keep the treated area moist and protected from the sun as it heals.


½ business card size or smaller (1.75″ x 2″) – $150 per treatment

½ business card to business card (up to 3.5” x 2”) – $300 per treatment

business card to ¼ page (up to 4.5” x 5.5”) – $500 per treatment

Above that will need a consult and price in the office.

– the number of colors do not matter – we do not up-charge for each color

– topical numbing cream and numbing blocks will be included for all procedures – “comfort included”

It is recommended to do these as a series. 3 treatments should get your significantly lighter, and easier to be covered with a new tattoo. 6 treatments will yield much better results and your tattoo should be as close to removed as possible.

For patients who elect packages of 6 treatments and prepay in full for a package, 20% will be taken off the price.

I Love This Place!

I love this place. My first step in their office, I was like, whoa! It’s beautiful! I was sent here by the VA for some skin issues and the doctors here are truly amazing. He listens to every single complaint I’ve had without any judgment and is very positive about my treatment plan! Even the nurses and ladies behind the desks were super friendly. I definitely recommend this place!!


Does The Best Lips!

Does the best lips! He’s also a really skilled injector. I don’t even think he numbed me, but I barely felt anything. It was nice not to do a dental block. He gave me the exact (natural) look I was going for. Not obviously fake at all but I DID get compliments on my lips from a few of my doctor friends!

The best Doctor ever! I’ve been dealing with rosacea for years and he was the only doctor who really help me. Im really glad that i find this amazing person he’s so kind, professional humble
