Thick, shapely eyebrows have become wildly popular in recent years. For people with naturally thin brows or those who dislike creating their desired brow shape with makeup, microblading is an attractive alternative. Unfortunately for some, their microblading hasn’t turned out the way they hoped. At Colorado Skin & Vein, we have answers to all your microblading removal questions.
How Does the PiQo4 Laser Work?
Not all microblading procedures turn out how we expect, and for some recipients of semi-permanent makeup, this can be devastating, especially as it takes 3-5 years to fade. The Colorado Skin & Vein team was one of the first in the country to bring our patients PiQo4 laser technology, and we can remove your microblading mishap with just a few treatments. As one of the most powerful tools in our laser arsenal, the PiQo4’s precision makes it possible to treat even delicate areas of the face, like the eyebrows. PiQo4 uses both picosecond and nanosecond technology to achieve permanent makeup and microblading removal. The pulses shatter pigments at both the surface and at depth, making short work of even the most resistant tattoos. Nanosecond pulses break up large, deeper ink particles, while picosecond pulses target small, shallow particles and clean up what the nanosecond pulses leave behind for more complete treatment at once.
Am I a Good Candidate?
If you’re unhappy with your microblading and don’t want to wait 3-5 years for it to fade, PiQo4 laser treatments may be for you. Because PiQo4 technology can be adjusted, it can be used on almost any skin tone or type. Start your treatment with a consultation at Colorado Skin & Vein today.

What is the Treatment Like?
Most laser treatments heat the skin’s surface, and can be uncomfortable, much like a sunburn causes discomfort. While not entirely pain-free, patients find PiQo4 treatment very tolerable, and with the system’s high adjustability, your provider can effectively manage your pain during the treatment. The PiQo4 pulses have been likened to the snap of a rubber band against the skin, and the laser system’s sound pops with each pulse. Following treatment, your skin may be sensitive, tender, reddened, and have mild swelling, but these effects should subside within a few hours. You may resume your normal activities immediately following your microblading removal.
When Will I See Results?
Immediately following your PiQo4 treatment, you may experience a “frosting” effect, the development of a white layer on treated skin while you heal. This is normal and fades the microblading as shattered ink particles are absorbed and filtered out of the body. It may require multiple sessions and take a few weeks before your microblading fully disappears.
