Laser Tattoo Removal Machine
Laser Skin Clinic provides the Cynosure PicoSure Laser Tattoo Removal Machine in Toronto and Richmond Hill.
Are you looking for the best laser tattoo removal machine in Toronto? Our PicoSure laser tattoo removal equipment from Cynosure is the most powerful technology available today and the industry’s gold standard for laser tattoo removal. The PicoSure laser is the world’s first picosecond aesthetic laser with tattoo removal wavelengths. PicoSure’s innovative technology creates a powerful photothermal impact in trillionths of a second, sparing the skin from significant thermal damage and targeting the chromophore for more excellent removal in fewer sessions.
PicoSure® technology demonstrates that tattoo removal technology has advanced tremendously over the years.

- It targets melanin to treat a variety of pigmentary disorders.
- Because of the picosecond pulse length, there is minor thermal damage.
- Customizable treatments with spot sizes of 2-6mm, 8mm, and 10mm
- Clinical validation has been shown with 26 publications and 59 abstracts so far.
- PicoSure simplifies tattoo removal even more. The 755nm wavelength targets black, blue, and green tattoo inks, while the optional 532nm wavelength treats “sunset colours”—red, yellow, and orange—which are notoriously difficult to repair. You will also be able to do the following:
- Variable spot sizes may be used to tailor treatments.
- Use boost mode to treat stubborn tattoos with shorter pulse widths.
- It treats at three different wavelengths: 532nm, 755nm, and 1064nm.
- The 1064nm delivery wavelength treats black ink in individuals with darker skin.
The Advantages of the Laser Tattoo Removal Machine
Since the late 1970s, lasers have been used to erase tattoos. Tattoo removal using an argon laser was attempted on 28 people in 1979 with minimal results.
Novel clinical research exploring the effects of Q-switched ruby laser light on blue/black tattoos was conducted in Scotland in the 1980s. Further research into different tattoo colours was conducted with varying degrees of success.
Thousands of tattoo pigment particles stay in the skin’s dermis after the ink is put into it. The photomechanical impact of laser treatment causes these particles to heat up and fracture into smaller bits. In most instances, macrophages transport ink particles to lymph nodes around the tattoo site. Macrophages are specialist immune cells that surround foreign particles and remove them from the body.
The energy absorbed by the ink particles during the photomechanical effect is measured in nanoseconds. Four factors determine the degradation of tattoo pigments by laser tattoo removal:
The tattoo pigment must absorb the laser light’s colour more readily than the surrounding skin. As a result, various tattoo pigments need distinct laser colours. Green tattoo colours, for example, absorb red light, but yellow does not.
The laser energy’s pulse (time) duration must be concise.
Each laser pulse must give enough energy to heat the pigment to fragmentation.
The light’s colour must penetrate deep into the skin to reach the tattoo pigment.
Different lasers erase different colours of tattoos
Ruby Q-switched: 694 nm the red light produced by this laser is absorbed by green and dark tattoo pigments.
755 nm for Q-switched Alexandrite This laser absorbs green pigment but not red, orange, yellow, brown, or other colours. It is available at picosecond speed and promises to erase ink more quicker.
532 nm for Q-switched Frequency-double Nd: YAG. This laser emits green light, which is absorbed by red, yellow, and orange pigments.
1064 nm for Q-switched Nd: YAG. Because the light isn’t absorbed by melanin like the ruby, it works better on darker skin.
Picosecond laser pulses are more effective than nanosecond pulses in removing black tattoos. However, the difference between Q-switched and polychromic tattoos is negligible.

The Kirby-Desai scale is often used to determine the likelihood of success and the number of sessions required for laser tattoo removal. Patients are usually given an inaccurate appraisal of the number of therapies available, and they typically participate in the process without fully understanding the likelihood of success. Six characteristics are assigned numerical values in the Kirby-Desai scale: skin type, location, colour, the quantity of ink, scarring or tissue alteration, and layering.
The average number of laser tattoo removal sessions needed was 8, ranging from 3 to 20 treatments. Treatments must be scheduled six weeks apart.
Patients with Fitzpatrick skin types (darker skin) are unsuitable for laser tattoo removal. Because they use the laser on lower settings to minimize undesired side effects like hypopigmentation, they often need longer wait periods between treatments.
