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 pigments and ink particles using powerful shock waves, rather than with heat, which means a doctor can treat discolorations more aggressively without having to worry about unwanted side-effects such as burning, scarring, or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
What it targets:
Hyperpigmentation, melasma, age and sun spots, Hori’s nevus, fine lines, acne scars, and tattoos
Little to none. Any redness or swelling usually disappears after one day.
