The most advanced Laser Tattoo Removal

Who benefits from PicoWay?

Many of us have experienced getting a tattoo that just doesn’t suit us anymore. We’ve outgrown it and changed or maybe we didn’t like how it turned out from the beginning. 

You don’t have to keep living with regret that you have to see visually spelled out on yourself everyday. There are now safe, advanced laser treatments that remove any trace of ink and allow you to say goodbye to the unwanted tattoo for good.

In the past, tattoo removal treatments could not always achieve the results that you can get today. Before advanced technology was developed, several rounds of treatments could remove some of the ink, but what remained was a faded, cloudy area of where the tattoo once was.

The biggest improvement in technology has been with the invention of picosecond lasers. These lasers deliver super short pulses in order to maximize the breakdown of the tattoo ink, resulting in fewer, more effective treatments than traditional removal devices. You can also expect a much quicker healing process with picosecond lasers.

What is PicoWay?

The newest PicoWay laser is truly innovative and groundbreaking– it enables removal of multi-colored tattoo ink on all skin types. This laser treatment isn’t as widely available because it’s a high-cost technology, but our team is proud to offer it.

The PicoWay is FDA-approved and uses different handpieces and laser wavelengths. It has ultra-short pulse durations which lead to a “photo-acoustic” effect that avoids heating the skin and breaks up the ink or pigmentation into smaller particles that are easier to eliminate. This decreases side effects and the chances for scarring.

The PicoWay laser reaches under the skin for its impact, leaving the outer layer of the skin intact.  There is little-to-no downtime after treatment, and you are able to resume your normal daily activities right away.

During your treatment appointment, we will utilize topical and/or an injectable numbing solution to minimize any discomfort. Multiple treatment sessions are typically required to achieve complete removal. 

If you’re experiencing tattoo regret, book your initial consultation to find out if PicoWay is the right treatment solution for you. At the consultation, we will customize a treatment plan for you and discuss all of the details that you can expect during and after treatment.

Having this advanced technology is important, but equally as important is the experience of your provider. We have helped thousands of patients remove their tattoos for good. Rest assured that between the newest PicoWay laser and our extensive experience, you couldn’t be in better hands.

Our Philosophy

“Our practice philosophy is simple — to deliver the very best care we can in the very best way we can. To us, that means we make each and every patient feel welcomed from the moment that they walk in the door until they leave the office. It means that we listen to what the patient has to say and address those concerns. It means we give advice and recommend treatments based on our extensive training with leaders in the field, our wealth of personal experience, and our commitment to excellence. For our cosmetic patients, it means working with the patient to achieve results that look natural, not overdone or exaggerated. It means that we always strive to do the right thing for the patient, as we value very highly ethics, honesty, and integrity. It means we stand behind what we do and will do everything in our power to get the best results we can for the patient. It means we carefully select the highest quality staff to represent us and help us carry out these goals. Lastly and most importantly, it means that we treat the patient the way we would want ourselves to be treated, with respect and kindness. Because at the end of the day, without all of our loyal patients, we wouldn’t have a practice.”

Extremely caring

"He saved my life! Literally! I've been seeing Dr. Potozkin for over 20 years and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my skin. I had melanoma 20 years ago and he took care of me and just recently I had it again. And might have more, but I'm waiting on the results. But if I do, I am confident that Dr Potozkin and his highly trained staff will take care of me. He is the best in his field. Everyone on his staff is so caring and helpful. I feel so comfortable when I'm there. So please, if you have any skin concerns, make an appointment, don't delay, your life may depend on it."

Efficient & Professional

"Dr. Potozkin and his team are the best! My skin issues/problems have drastically improved since I have been coming to this Doctor-over 5, maybe even 10 years. His staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The office is a flagship store that sells my favorite skin repair and healing products- by SkinCeuticals. I don’t live near this office, but I would never go anywhere else even if it’s closer. Absolutely worth the trip. The results are real!"
