The Picosure laser uses pico-second 755nm technology to smash away stubborn tattoo pigments safely. Even the most challenging blue, green and purple inks, or stubborn tattoos previously treated by conventional lasers can be effectively removed with this laser. With the Picosure laser, you can save time with just half the number of treatments than traditional lasers.
Our PicoSure® Tattoo Removal Laser is designed to treat both black and coloured tattoos. This treatment is safe for all skin types with little downtime.
The cynosure PicoSure® laser has evolved and most manufacturers boast a picosecond laser in their armoury.
This technology allows laser pulses to be delivered to the skin in ultra-short i.e. picosecond bursts which is 100 times faster than existing nanosecond technology. This delivers a powerful photomechanical impact for faster and more effective clearance of tattoos and pigmentation and overall requires fewer treatments.
PicoSure® is a picosecond laser and the only tattoo removal laser with PressureWave technology, which works with your body to remove unwanted ink. PicoSure® delivers laser energy that specifically targets tattoo ink, resulting in the successful shattering of just the ink particles without harming the surrounding tissue.
These pulses are so rapid they cause a change in pressure that breaks ink apart into tiny dust-like particles. These tiny particles are then absorbed by the lymphatic system, a critical part of your body’s immune system, and eliminated naturally.
Over the next few weeks, the body’s scavenger cells remove pigment residues, resulting in lightening of the tattoo.
With its higher photo-acoustic energy, the Pico Laser breaks down pigmentation into smaller fragments compared to a Nano Laser (Q-Switched Laser). These smaller fragments are then cleared faster by the body. Plus, because of its substantially shorter pulse duration (the length of time the energy spends in your skin), the Pico Laser has less of a photo-thermal effect. This means that there is less heat generated that may adversely affect surrounding skin tissues.
WHAT SORT OF TATTOOS CAN PicoSure® REMOVE?
PicoSure® works on:
As the leading picosecond laser, PicoSure® is able to treat all colors of tattoo ink on patients of all skin types, so it’s very likely that PicoSure® could work for you!
PicoSure® works effectively on:
Earlier methods in tattoo removal involved the use of crude and painful dermabrasion, salabrasion (using coarse table salt and a moist abrasive pad), surgery and CO2 lasers, but these procedures had a much higher risk of scarring, which may have been worse than having the tattoo itself.
PicoSure® is designed with safety in mind and incidents of scarring are very rare. Tattoo removal treatments require more energy than skin revitalization and some patients may experience hypopigmentation (a lightening in skin color of the treated area) but this is usually temporary and normal skin is typically restored once healing is complete.
Under our care, tattoos are removed with close to no risk of scarring. The art of laser tattoo removal is to remove the tattoo as quickly as possible, but at the same time do it safely without scarring.
