PicoSure® is a comfortable and convenient tattoo removal and skin revitalization treatment for wrinkles, acne scars and pigments like freckles, sunspots and discolouration. PicoSure® is among a range of aesthetic lasers that don’t rely solely on heat to burn or melt away unwanted tattoo ink or melanin, the pigment that causes dark spots in your skin.
Instead, PicoSure engineers use cutting-edge physics and medical science to help practitioners treat patients in a new way. Instead of building up heat, PicoSure® delivers energy so rapidly (in trillionths of a second) that tiny particles that make up the pigment and tattoo ink vibrate and shatter, without burning surrounding tissue.
Even more impressive is how it is designed to harness the body’s natural healing process to restore youthful skin in ways never before possible. Using proprietary Focus lens technology, PicoSure® effectively converts the laser energy into gentle pressure waves that activate Cell Signaling, the body’s natural communication processes.
As the leading picosecond laser, PicoSure® is able to treat all colours of tattoo ink on patients of all skin types, PicoSure® could likely work for you! A Picosecond pulse creates an intense photomechanical impact known as PressureWave™. A PressureWave™ shatters the target particles within picoseconds (trillionths of a second). It targets colour pigments and clears colours such as red, orange and yellow with fewer treatments and less fluence, without injury to the surrounding skin. The treatment of stubborn dark, blue and green inks or previously treated but unsuccessful tattoos is also possible with PicoSure®.
PicoSure® has been shown to remove tattoos in fewer treatments, so speak to us about a treatment plan that is right for you.
Through its unique energy delivery, PicoSure® focuses on patients who are seeking ways to improve their skin or reduce signs of ageing. PicoSure® gently treats pigmented conditions and discolouration with fewer risks, pain or downtime than traditional lasers. The Focus Lens stimulates collagen and elastin production, improving the appearance of wrinkles, age lines and acne scars. The PicoSure® Laser has also been shown to improve skin texture and pore size. Results in the treatment of acne scarring are also comparable to fractional ablative laser treatments such as Fractional CO2 Laser.
How does the VISIA® complexion analysis work? We use multispectral photos of different wavelengths, including infrared light, to identify visible and invisible changes in the skin that may indicate skin issues and disease. This non-invasive thermal imaging can identify the overall condition of your skin and may even lead to an early diagnosis of skin cancer.
