CynoSure PicoSure Tattoo Removal is the first of a new generation 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.
Cynosure PicoSure is the world’s first and only picosecond aesthetic laser cleared by the FDA. Recognized as a breakthrough in tattoo removal, PicoSure will help you achieve visibly clearer, ink-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.
Quickly surpassing traditional lasers in terms of effective tattoo removal because it’s faster, more effective, and more affordable.
The procedure uses picosecond technology to deliver short bursts of energy into the skin, effectively breaking the ink into tiny particles for the body to process.
Compared with traditional Q-switched lasers, PicoSure has more power to eradicate stubborn, old, previously-treated tattoos.
Bonus points: PicoSure is gentler on the body (it doesn’t affect the surrounding skin) and comes with almost no downtime or side effects.
How Does CynoSure PicoSure Tattoo Removal ?
Unlike traditional lasers, PicoSure laser tattoo removal works by delivering short bursts of PressureWaveTM technology at a wavelength of either 532 nm, 755 nm, or 1064 nm, depending on the treatment. Compared with traditional Q-switched lasers (at one time the most popular laser technology for removing unwanted tat’s), the PicoSure laser doesn’t rely on heat or burning to melt away tattoos.
Instead, it uses rapid, short pulse energy, called Picosecond technology, to penetrate the tattoo colors and break them up. The patented PressureWaveTM is more hyper-focused than regular lasers’ nanosecond technology. The pulse width used in this picosecond laser is 100 times shorter than a nanosecond, which triggers a photomechanical effect and improves the results of the removal process.
Essentially, the PicoSure treatment shoots this advanced laser into the ink that breaks it into tiny particles that are similar to dust. These particles are then absorbed by the body’s lymphatic system and eliminated naturally. Compared with traditional nanosecond lasers, picosecond lasers require fewer treatments and are more likely to get rid of the most stubborn inks.
