The PicoSure Difference
PressureWave™ Technology – PicoSure uses the latest technology to remove ink colours by delivering ultra-short picosecond pulses of energy into the skin. These pulses create a photomechanical effect, or PressureWave, that targets ink while avoiding unmarked tissue. PressureWave shatters the ink into tiny, dust-like particles which are easily eliminated by the body. PicoSure’s short bursts are measured in picoseconds (trillionths of a second, 1,000,000,000,000 of a second), which cause the tattoo ink to break apart into tiny particles which are then easily eliminated by the body.
Fewer Treatments, with PicoSure, tattoos can be removed faster, and with fewer treatments than ever before. The number of laser treatments needed for tattoo removal is dependent on a number of variables such as ink type, size of the tattoo and lifestyle habits. Clinical studies for the use of PicoSure to remove tattoos have shown a dramatic reduction in the amount of treatments needed in comparison to Nanosecond lasers (one billionth of a second, 1,000,000,000 of a second) energy pulse.
