PiQo4 is one of the latest technologically advanced treatments for pigmentation and tattoo removal. This is just one of the amazing procedures offered at WAVE, and we’ve seen our patients get amazing results from PiQo4.
How PiQo4 Works
Simply put, PiQo4 shatters pigment, resurfaces the skin, and even improves skin tone, texture, and laxity.
While it is a laser, the energy that is being transferred is acoustic-based allowing precise and targeted treatment.
PiQo4 takes an innovative approach to treating pigment by using the power of long and short pulses. The best way to describe this is to think about pigment as large rocks. PiQo4 first breaks down the rocks into pebbles (with long pulses) and then further breaks down the pebbles into sand (with short pulses). PiQo4 is essentially shattering the pigment, delivering amazing results, and helping restore patients’ confidence again.
One of the reasons PiQo4 is so effective is the use of four different wavelengths. This allows the treatment to be effective on a wide range of pigments and tattoo colors. Unlike other laser-based treatments, PiQo4 can be used on all skin types.

Getting PiQo4 Treatment
For patients that are interested in getting PiQo4 treatment, we always recommend that you get a consultation first. WAVE offers a wide variety of both surgical and non-surgical treatments and we want to make sure you get the treatment this right for you.
If PiQo4 is the right option, we’ll have you schedule an appointment to get expert care from our staff. We’ll make sure you are comfortable and start by cleaning your skin and then applying some ice to get the skin prepared for treatment. After that, it is 3-4 passes with the PiQo4 to help patients get optimal results.
Getting the Best Results
While each person is a little bit different, most patients typically see the best results after 3-6 treatments.
Furthermore, patients experience the best results when they take care of their skin before and after treatment. We recommend that patients use medical-grade skincare prior to treatment that contains hydroquinone, retinol, or Retin-A. This treatment should stop 48-72 hours before the treatment which will ensure that the skin can recover properly. After treatment, patients should use sunblock to protect their skin and their results.
For nearly two decades, WAVE has helped patients awaken their inner beauty. Our expert team is here to help, answer any questions you might have, and help you get the treatment you’ve been looking for.
