How PicoSure Works
PicoSure is the world’s first and only picosecond aesthetic laser cleared by the FDA. Recognised as a breakthrough in tattoo removal, PicoSure will help you achieve visibly clearer, ink-free skin faster. Even difficult ink colours, such as blues and greens, as well as previously treated tattoos, can be removed in fewer treatments with better clearance and improved recovery time.
The PicoSure Difference - PressureWave™ Technology
PicoSure uses the latest technology to remove ink colours by delivering ultra-short picosecond pulses of energy into the skin. These pulses create a photomechanical effect, or PressureWave, that targets ink while avoiding unmarked tissue. PressureWave shatters the ink into tiny, dust-like particles which are easily eliminated by the body. This results in clearer skin with fewer treatments without injuring the surrounding skin.
Traditional nanosecond lasers predominantly rely on photothermal action, delivering heat to the pigment and surrounding tissue.
PicoSure takes advantage of PressureWave Technology to shatter the targeted ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body.
Ultra-short Pulse duration is the difference
- Picosecond pulse width is 100 times shorter than nanosecond technology
- Only ultra-short pulse durations trigger photomechanical effect
- With this short pulse width, half the fluence is required compared to nanosecond lasers
