Erase unwanted tattoos with PicoSure, the most advanced laser treatment available for safe and effective tattoo removal. PicoSure targets unwanted ink more effectively than ever before, successfully removing difficult ink colors, such as blues and greens, as well as previously treated tattoos. Fewer treatments, faster recovery time, and greater results are achievable with PicoSure’s groundbreaking picoseconds technology.
What is PicoSure?
Using picosecond technology, the PicoSure laser offers a breakthrough in laser tattoo removal treatment. Ultra-short pulse bursts of energy are delivered to the skin in just trillionths of a second. The picosecond pulse width is 100 times shorter than the nanosecond technology used with traditional tattoo removal systems. Clinical studies show that PicoSure is able to treat darker, multi-colored, and complex tattoos more efficiently, with more significant removal in much less time.
How does PicoSure remove tattoos?
Traditional nanosecond lasers used for tattoo removal rely predominately on photothermal (heat) action delivered to the pigment of the tattoo and the surrounding tissue. The ultra-short pulse of energy of PicoSure goes beyond the photothermal action of a traditional laser by creating an intense photomechanical effect that shatters the target ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body, while leaving the surrounding tissue unheated.
Other lasers often require between 10 and 20 treatments spaced 6 to 8 weeks apart. PicoSure treatments can be performed every 4 to 5 weeks, and tattoos are often cleared in about 4 to 6 treatments, so your unwanted tattoo will be gone in a fraction of the time.
