Laser tattoo removal was introduced in ’90s, but it hasn’t changed drastically over the last two decades. The FDA-approved PicoSure is one of the most popular tattoo treatment lasers on the market.
PicoSure is the world’s first picosecond aesthetic laser, widely recognized for its technology leadership, proven performance, and industry-leading body of clinical evidence. Capable of skin revitalization with virtually no downtime and all-color tattoo removal, it is a unique practice addition that will make both physicians and patients happy.
PicoSure is utilized for skin rejuvenation treatments (in addition to tattoo removal). There is a newer handpiece that has been developed and the procedure associated with it is the PicoSure Focus (handpiece is the Focus Lens Array). This allows for treatments associated with skin rejuvenation including addressing fine lines and wrinkles, tone and texture of the skin, pigmentations, as well as stretch marks and scar treatments. This is NOT a Q-switched laser (as alluded to in another answer to your question), it is a picosecond Alexandrite laser, the only one of its kind in the world. It contains the absolute latest in technology for laser treatments and the indications are expanding as research and clinical studies continue to show.
Cynosure, the company that developed is dedicated to constant improvements in the software and hardware to make this already fantastic treatment even better. As stated by one of the other physicians, there is virtually no downtime with this treatment, as the skin appears red for a matter of a few hours only.
After a series of treatments, patients are seeing the lightening and brightening they want without the downtime they don’t. The increase in collagen and elastin can make for a visible difference in the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles while the laser energy also works to clear unwanted pigment. With demonstrated safety in all skin types, patients around the world can feel comfortable knowing PicoSure treatments are a safe and effective option.
PicoSure with Focus features:
- 15-minute treatments
- Only 1-6 hours of mild redness – minimal downtime
- Increased collagen and elastin resulting in dermal remodeling effect
- Lightening and brightening that patients want
- Safety in all skin types
