What equipment do we use for permamanent make-up and tattoo removal?

At Aether Clinic we use Candela Picoway picosecond laser, the fastest and most powerful picosecond laser in the world, to remove permanent makeup and tattoos of all colors. This breakthrough picosecond technology shatters tattoos into tiny particles in pulses within a trillionth of a second.

Innovative picosecond laser PicoWay with four wavelengths 1064 nm, 730 nm, 785 nm and 532 nm, which allows you to remove tattoos of any color and pigmentation on any skin photo-type, as well as perform laser rejuvenation procedures.

The unique operating principle of the PicoWay laser is based on the impact of ultra-short picosecond pulses of energy on tissue, which causes a photo-mechanical and photoacoustic effect, leading to the breakdown of tattoo ink or pigmentation into smaller, easily removable particles. We would like to notice to the fact that we are the first and only clinic in the Czech Republic that works with the authentic PicoWay laser.

PicoWay Laser has the highest peak power and shortest pulse duration of any picosecond laser on the market, giving it superior efficacy, safety and procedure performance. The PicoWay laser’s ultra-short pulses provide the powerful photoacoustic force needed to break up pigment particles using lower fluences (energy densities) for better results in fewer treatments.

How does it work?

The laser beam targets colors corresponding to a specific laser wavelength and uses ultra-short picosecond pulses to break down the tattoo into very small particles, which are then easily removed by the bodys immune system.

PicoWay laser produces less thermal energy than traditional lasers, providing better results in fewer treatments and a safe and comfortable treatment for the patient without the risk of skin damage, scarring, or other side effects.

How is the procedure done?

Individual parameters of the procedure are selected, depending on the color, depth, density of pigment, the area of removal and the age of the tattoo or permanent makeup. An anesthetic cream is applied to the treated area.

Special goggles are put on the eyes, and the doctor treats the desired area with a laser. During the process, the pigment that is in the cells breaks down into small particles, and then can be easily eliminated by the body.

At the end of the procedure, a moisturizing and soothing cream is applied to the treatment area, and the doctor gives recommendations for after care.

How many procedures will it take to remove tattoo and permanent makeup?

The effectiveness of treatment depends on many factors: age, location, depth, color, size and type of tattoo. To achieve optimal results, an average of 2-10 treatments for tattoo removal and 2-5 treatment for permanent makeup r will be required, spaced 4-8 weeks apart.

PicoWay laser selectively target the tattoo, leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. The final result is determined individually. In most cases, after a certain number of procedures, the laser removes the tattoo completely without any scars, achieving the result of completely clear skin.

How long does it take to see results?

First results youll see after the first treatment. But final results from laser tattoo removal are not immediate, as the body needs time to naturally remove the broken-down ink particles. It can take several weeks to see noticeable results.

Is tattoo removal painful?

It can cause some discomfort during the treatment, but most patients describe it as feeling like a rubber band snapping against the skin. A topical anesthetic can be applied to minimize any discomfort.


  • Tanned skin or application of self-tanner less then 3-4 weeks prior the treatment
  • Infections, inflammatory skin diseases
  • Taking medications that increase the photosensitivity of the skin
  • Oncological diseases
  • Skin damage, wounds
  • Pregnancy, breastfeeding
  • Epilepsy

Recommendations after the procedure

When you are planning to remove tattoos, you need to take into consideration that immediately after tattoo removal, redness, swelling, tingling, and slight itching may occur in the treatment area. Typically, these manifestations disappear within a few hours to 2-3 days (the exact timing depends on the depth of penetration of the laser beams and the number of procedures).

During the recovery period after complete tattoo removal, you must:

  • Try not to get the tattoo removal area wet for 24 hours.
  • For the first 1–2 days, apply cream with panthenol or bepanthen cream on the treated area
  • Avoid sunbathing and visiting a solarium for 4 weeks.
  • Avoid application of scrubs and cosmetics with abrasive particles for 1 week.
  • Always apply sunscreen with SPF above 50 to the area where the procedure has been performed.

Why to choose tattoo and permanent makeup removal at Aether Clinic?

  • The most effective permanent makeup and tattoo removal of all colors thanks to the fastest and most powerful picosecond laser in the world- PicoWay. The PicoWay uses the very latest picosecond technology. A picosecond is one trillionth of a second and is therefore 100 times faster compared to the outdated nanosecond technique that the older lasers (such as the Q-switched ND-Yag or Pastelle laser) work with. Of all picolasers, the PicoWay also has the shortest pulse duration, making it the most effective and safe laser on the market.
  • TECHNOLOGY No. 1. The only genuine picosecond laser in the Czech Republic.
  • Suitable for all skin types and ink colors. All colors of ink can be treated due to the 4 different wavelengths. In addition, the PicoWay has a holographic fractionated handpiece, the PicoWay Resolve. This handpiece can be used to treat tattoos, permanent make-up or micro hair pigmentation, where scar tissue originated during setting, to improve the skin structure.
  • No rehabilitation and no season restrictions. Carrying out procedures at any time of the year, short rehabilitation period.
  • 100% safety. The procedure is carried out without the risk of burns, scars or other side effects.
  • Proven effectiveness. The ultra-short pulse duration of 250-450 ps copes more effectively with aesthetic tasks, unlike other picosecond lasers with pulse durations of 650 and 750 ps.
  • The fastest results. The result is visible after the 1st procedure. Optimal results or the clear skin” effect can be achieved in a much shorter number of treatments compared to other lasers.
  • Comfort of the procedure. Due to ultra-short pulses, the pain of the procedure is minimal.
  • Highly qualified doctors and reasonable prices for tattoo and permanent makeup removal procedures.
