A Fantastic Laser for Tattoo Removal – And More!
EXTINKT is proud to offer the PiQo4 Laser System which is considered the Gold Standard for Tattoo removal. The PiQo4 system has high pulse energy and large spot size. As a result, we’re able to offer our clients results in up to 40% fewer treatments! Our system is the ONLY 4-wavelength system with picosecond and nanosecond pulses. Not only can we correct that unwanted tattoo for you, but the PiQo4 system also provides skin rejuvenation services! Our technicians are able to treat pigmented lesions, melasma, common nevi, lentigines, cafe-au-lait spots, acne scars, seborrheic keratosis, and vascular lesions!
Why the PiQo4?
Ideal Wavelengths for All the Most Popular Ink Colours
Deepest Skin Penetration
Most Accurate Calibration
Largest Spot Size
Broadest Fluence for Best Results
These results speak for themselves:

Ideal Peak-Absorption Wavelengths
Perhaps most noteworthy, research shows that each ink pigment color absorbs a very specific wavelength.* Older, competitor tattoo removal laser devices are ineffective on many ink colors, even the most common pigments. Other 2nd generation devices were quick to add more wavelengths, but still left many common pigment colors unaddressed.
Ink absorption studies validate the architecture of PiQo4 with its four wavelengths that perfectly target nine of the most common colors used in tattoos. (White ink is not absorbent of any wavelength.)
Where many devices are limited to either just one or two wavelengths or have made claims about pigment elimination using less optimal wavelengths, the PiQo4 is the only device to treat nine of the most popular colors (and all skin types). As a result, clients experience less treatments, fewer side effects, and more effective results.

Large Spot Size – Why is it so important?
Faster treatments and shorter sessions (up to 27x shorter!)
Deeper skin penetration
Larger spot sizes are safer for skin
Deeper Skin Penetration
The PiQo4 features the largest coverage area available – almost four times larger most competitors! The PiQo4 is the absolute best device for speed and effectiveness. Because of its spot size and power, the PiQo4 can penetrate deeper to reach embedded pigments and disperse ink particles better than any other device!
Ideal Fluence for Ideal Results
Studies show that effective treatments can be made with large spot sizes at low fluences, in order to avoid blisters and scarring.* Most devices can only generate the appropriate fluence in a very small area, which leads to blistering and scarring. The PiQo4 is able to generate more energy over a wider area than other competitive devices and has high efficacy with greatly reduced intensity on the skin. This reduces the chance of blistering, discoloration, and scars that are seen with other devices.

Side Effects seen with Competitive Devices
The Difference between Nanosecond and Picosecond
The most effective method of blasting pigment particles starts with shorter nanosecond bursts. These shorter bursts break up the larger, deeper particles that are not effectively treated by the more common picosecond pulses. A subsequent pass with picosecond pulses then breaks up the more manageable particles. Furthermore, these smaller, shallower particles are better treated in combination than could be possible with the nanosecond technology on its own.
Compare the results against the competitors
Seeing is believing and our results speak for themselves! The larger spot size and increased power of the PiQo4 make it supreme compared to other devices on the market, with less pain, fewer treatments, and side effects! Check out the video below for a comparison!
