Picosure’s new 532 nm wavelength is designed to more effectively treat red, orange, and yellow tattoo ink colors.
PicoSure* is the world’s first aesthetic picosecond laser, widely recognized for its technology leadership, unmatched clinical versatility and proven performance. Recent PicoSure innovations such as Boost™ Adjustable Pressure and FOCUS™ Lens Array have enabled clinical applications and revenue expansion opportunities not available with any other laser system. The 532 nm wavelength is now FDA cleared and will be available with new systems and as an upgrade to existing PicoSure customers. PicoSure is the only picosecond laser platform with a combination 755 nm / 532 nm wavelength option to treat the full color spectrum of tattoo inks. View a recent on-demand webcast.
The world’s FIRST picosecond laser for:
- Tattoo removal
- Acne Scar Treatment
- Removal of pigmented lesions
- Wrinkle Treatment
PicoSure’s ultra-short pulse duration goes beyond photothermal action creating an intense photomechanical impact, patented PressureWave™, resulting in greater disruption of the target for better clearance with fewer treatments, less fluence and without injury to the surrounding skin. Even dark, stubborn blue and green inks, as well as previously-treated, recalcitrant tattoos can be removed.
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.
Ultra-short Pulse Duration Is the Difference
- Picosecond pulse width is 100X shorter than nanosecond technology.
- Only ultrashort pulse durations trigger photomechanical effect.
- With this short pulse width, half the fluence is required compared to Q-Switched nanosecond lasers.
