PiQO4 Laser Tattoo Removal in La Jolla, CA

Conveniently located to serve La Jolla, Del Mar, and San Diego.

Melasma and Tattoos

PiQo4 is the most revolutionary laser technology available today for eliminating an array of skin imperfections. It is the only non-thermal laser with four wavelengths and both nanosecond and picosecond pulse delivery. The highly focused light breaks up pigmentation and causes collagen formation that helps eliminate fine lines and wrinkles. By targeting the pigment at different levels of skin through adjustable penetration depths, and at various wavelengths, PiQo4 shatters pigment without harming surrounding skin. The final result delivers rejuvenated skin with no downtime. To achieve these results, come in for PiQo4 in La Jolla today.

What Is PiQo4?

The PiQo4™ laser is a cutting edge new system that we will be using for two main purposes: melasma and tattoo removal.  Using very high non-heat based energy, the PiQo4 shatters the pigment within the skin, whether it be hyperpigmentation from melasma or unwanted tattoo pigment, and is safe for all skin types. We are thrilled to add the PiQO4 to our wide array of laser treatments and are proud to offer the very best in laser technology and innovation.

PiQo4 is recommended for treatment of:

  • Melasma
  • Unwanted pigmentation and lesions
  • Skin irregularities
  • Sun damage
  • Skin pigmentation associated with photoaging
  • Tattoo removal

Ideal Candidates

People who no longer want to be stuck with their unwanted tattoos and those who suffer from skin issues like lesions, acne scars, and vascular lesions are the best candidates for PiQ04. The treatment can also address other pigmentation issues, such as sun spots, age spots, and moles.

Because PiQo4 is safe for all skin tones, patients of all skin types and tones are excellent candidates for this laser treatment.

Your PiQo4 Consultation

You will need a consultation to determine your suitability for the treatment. We will evaluate your skin, discuss your skin goals, and go over your complete medical history to determine whether PiQo4 is right for you.

The Procedure

During a PiQo4 laser treatment session, topical anesthesia is first administered, numbing the area against pain and discomfort. Next, the laser’s handpiece is used to target the skin tissues with pulses of laser energy.

For tattoo removal, the PiQo4 laser removes tattoos by breaking up the ink on the skin. PiQo4 works on a wide variety of tattoo colors, because it has four powerful wavelengths. The body then slowly eliminates the broken-down ink particles. Depending on the tattoo’s size, color, density, and location, patients may need multiple treatments.

For melasma removal and skin rejuvenation, the PiQo4 laser’s energy breaks up the unwanted pigment while boosting elastin and collagen production. This restores skin health and structure.


After getting your PiQo4 laser treatment, expect your tattoo to become less visible. Your pigment spots become less pronounced, and your skin texture and tone become more even. You will need to come in for several sessions to get optimal results.

The Cost of PiQo4

The price of PiQo4 laser treatment depends on factors like how many treatments you need and which parts of the body need to be treated. You can learn more about the cost of the treatment during the consultation.
