PicoSuretm Advanced Laser Technology
PicoSure® is the world’s first picosecond aesthetic laser. This advanced breakthrough in laser technology delivers short pulse bursts of energy to the skin in trillionths of a second. One hundred times shorter than nanosecond technology, Picosecond pulse width enables unmatched photomechanical impact for better clearance with fewer treatments.
The PicoSure laser is used for the following procedures and services:
- Tattoo removal
- Skin revitalization
- Acne scar treatment
- Removal of pigmented lesions
PicoSure’s ultra-short pulse duration goes beyond photothermal action creating an intense photomechanical impact, patented PressureWave™, resulting in greater disruption of the target for better clearance with fewer treatments, less fluence and without injury to the surrounding skin. Even dark, stubborn blue and green inks, as well as previously-treated, recalcitrant tattoos can be removed.
Comparing Picosecond vs. Nanosecond Technology
Traditional nanosecond lasers predominately rely on photothermal action, delivering heat to the pigment and surrounding tissue. PicoSure takes advantage of PressureWave Technology to shatter the target ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body.
