Picosure leaves traditional lasers in the "Dust"!


The ink used in tattoos is made from minerals. To understand how tattoo removal works think of the ink as tiny "rocks." With multiple treatments, the "rocks" are broken down into smaller and smaller "pebbles." The number of treatments required to get a tattoo off varies greatly based on factors such as the age of the tattoo, whether it was applied by a professional or not, the depth and concentration of ink, the number of colours, the type of laser used, and the technique used to perform the treatments.

Traditional lasers used for tattoo removal are called Q-Switches. These nano-second lasers predominantly rely on photothermal action and deliver heat into the pigment and surrounding tissue. A minimum of 6 treatments and upwards of 15 or 20 are required. Complete clearance of ink is an unlikelihood if the tattoo has multiple colours. Scarring is not only possible but probable. The risk of scarring from Q-Switch treatments is heightened by treatment methods that involve multiple passes in the same session.

Save Time, Money, and Your Skin

PicoSure will help you achieve visibly clearer, ink-free skin faster. Picosure can remove tattoos in half the amount of treatments of other lasers. You no longer need to spend years getting a tattoo removed! And because there are fewer treatments, you not only save money, but also your valuable time.

The new pico-second laser operates at speeds measured in trillionths of a second! This breakthrough technology, known as Picosure, has opened up a whole new realm of possibilities for the use and effectiveness of lasers including faster clearance of tattoo ink. Picosure uses pressure-wave technology that creates an intense mechanical impact that shatters the ink into tiny particles. The "rocks" are not reduced to "pebbles," but instead become "sand."

These tiny ink particles are easily eliminated from the body!

Tattoos are cleared in fewer treatments, with less fluence, and without injuring the surrounding skin. Another indication for Picosure is scar revision. Thus, it has proven effective at removing previously treated tattoos that became impacted in scar tissue and failed to clear after multiple Q-switch treatments.

Tattoos can be cleared in one third the time as traditional lasers and with less discomfort!

Healing time after a Picosure treatment is similar to that of traditional lasers but far fewer treatments are required. Greens and blues which are notoriously difficult to remove with Q-switch lasers come off easily with Picosure. We have witnessed complete clearance of green and light blue ink in 1 to 3 treatments. Black, dark blue and other colours fade more slowly and may require 3 to 5 (occasionally more) treatments. Red and white will fade much slower than other colours. Pigment will diminish gradually over a period of 6-8 weeks. Treatment may then be repeated.
