How does it work?
A revolutionary rapid-burst of energy lasting just a trillionth of a second targets tattoo color pigment and leaves the surrounding tissue unaffected. This ultra-short pulse causes a change of pressure and unlike previous generations of tattoo removal, which used more power and generated heat, PicoSure uses just a fraction of the energy pulse with PressureWave technology. The fast change in pressure breaks ink into tiny particles which the lymphatic system can eliminate naturally. As the number of individuals with tattoos has increased, so has the need for improved tattoo removal methods. Tattoo removal methods have evolved from potentially harmful treatments that often had painful and sometimes permanent side effects to less harmful methods with good results. Until the introduction of laser tattoo removal, people had resorted to tattoo removal methods such as acid treatments, surgical excision, and dermabrasion.
What we love about it
PicoSure acts 4 times faster than previous generations. While individual results vary, we can reduce 15-20 treatments down to just 4 or 5. The wave technology causes less heat damage and therefore less scarring and it actually improves skin texture along the way as it activates the body’s immune system.
Smaller tattoos can take less than a minute to treat.
