Picosure Tattoo Removal Procedure

Ultra-short Pulse Duration Is the Difference

Picosecond pulse width is 100X shorter than nanosecond technology, and PicoSure tattoo removal often requires fewer treatments than traditional Q-Switched lasers. PicoSure patients and doctors have reported better clearance of the tattoo with an improved recovery time.

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.

Photomechanical Impact

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. Only ultrashort pulse durations trigger photomechanical effect. Even dark, stubborn blue and green inks, as well as previously-treated, recalcitrant tattoos can be removed.
