This revolutionary aesthetic technology approaches tattoo removal in an entirely new way, saving you appointments and discomfort. Read on to learn more about your new best tattoo-removing friend!
The PicoSure Laser Difference
Most tattoo removal lasers are nanosecond or Q-switched lasers. While these operate by emitting short pulses of energy, they use a photothermal action to break up ink particles. This produces heat, which can damage the skin, cause pain, and cause blistering post-treatment.
The PicoSure is a picosecond laser. The bursts of energy it emits are much briefer – only trillionths of a second! – and it uses a photomechanic action. This destroys ink particles in an unprecedented way. After being broken into tiny particles, the body’s immune system will naturally process them and remove them from the skin’s surface. Your tattoo will be minimized in a spectacularly thorough fashion.
