Picosure laser Q & A
What is the PicoSure Laser?
PicoSure’s cutting-edge technology produces a powerful photothermal impact in trillionths of a second, sparing the skin from severe thermal damage and focusing on the chromophore for quicker clearing between treatments. This treatment can be used to remove unwanted tattoos and skin revitalization, acne scar treatment, wrinkle treatment, and the removal of pigmented lesions.
How does PicoSure laser work exactly?
PicoSure laser technology allows for the quick, efficient, and selective eradication of tattoos or pigmented lesions. In addition, this laser’s increased elastin synthesis in the skin results in a softer, fuller, more youthful complexion.
The PicoSure laser sends out heat-free, ultra-short energy pulses to areas of your body. The laser’s tremendous impact on the skin disintegrates any abnormal skin pigment or tattoo ink. The body then naturally eliminates these.
The outstanding level of accuracy of the PicoSure laser allows the user to achieve the optimum photomechanical output. Despite its highly focused energy pulses, the laser gently affects the skin‘s outer layer. Because pico treatments do not burn the skin, patients frequently experience little to no discomfort during their sessions.

The cutting-edge pico technology isolates inked areas from healthy skin, minimizing the risk of problems including scarring and hypo- or hyperpigmentation, especially in skin types III and higher (Black, Asian, Hispanic)

In addition, the speed and reliability of this laser treatment are unparalleled.
• No downtime is required for PicoSure laser treatments. A few people can notice redness and swelling, although this should pass quickly. Usually, patients can resume their daily routine right away.
• Because PicoSure laser treatments are so precisely targeted, any risk of harm is significantly reduced. Pico is, therefore, relatively safe and can be used on any part of the body or face.
• PicoSure laser treatments for tattoo removal allow you to precisely lighten specific tattoo spots to cover them up.
