The PicoSure Difference: Pressure Wave Technology

picosurePicoSure is the world’s first and only picosecond aesthetic laser cleared by the FDA. Recognized as a breakthrough in tattoo and brown spot removal, PicoSure will help you achieve visibly clearer, ink- and spot-free skin faster. Even difficult ink colors such as blues and greens, as well as previously treated tattoos, can be removed in fewer treatments with better clearance and improved recovery time.

PicoSure uses the latest technology to remove ink colors and brown spots by delivering ultra-short picosecond pulses of energy into the skin.  These pulses create a photomechanical effect, or PressureWave™, that targets ink and brown spots while avoiding unmarked tissue. PressureWave shatters the ink and brown spots into tiny, dust-like particles which are easily eliminated by the body.  This results in clearer skin with fewer treatments without injuring the surrounding skin.

Picosecond vs. Nanosecond Technology

Traditional nanosecond lasers predominately rely on photothermal action, delivering heat to the pigment and surrounding tissue. PicoSure takes advantage of PressureWave Technology to shatter the target ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body.
