How does the PicoSure® laser work?
PicoSure® is the first and only aesthetic picosecond laser for the safe and effective removal of tattoos and benign 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.
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.
Now available with the Boost™ Upgrade, which increases the PressureWave™ by 70%.
