The PicoSure Laser delivers a shorter pulse of energy—in the pico-second range, rather than the nano-second range used by other lasers—making it safer, faster, and more effective. It breaks up ink particles and pigments using powerful shock waves, rather than with heat, which means a doctor can treat your tattoo or pigmentation more aggressively without having to worry about unwanted side-effects such as burning, scarring, or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
What it targets:
Tattoos, hyperpigmentation, melasma, Hori’s nevus, age and sun spots, fine lines, and acne scars
Little to none. Any redness or swelling usually disappears after one day.
