PicoSure Laser

The First and Leading Choice for Comfortable and Convenient Tattoo Removal and Skin Revitalization for All Skin Tones

Including Treatments for Wrinkles, Acne Scars and Pigment like Freckles, Sunspots and Discoloration

PicoSure is the first of a new generation of aesthetic lasers that don’t rely solely on heat to burn or melt away unwanted tattoo ink or melanin, the pigment that causes dark spots in your skin. Instead, PicoSure uses cutting edge physics and medical science to treat patients in a new way. PicoSure delivers energy so rapidly (in trillionths of a second) that tiny particles that make up pigment and tattoo ink vibrate and shatter, without burning surrounding tissue. Less heat means less tissue damage and discomfort.

Recent discoveries have begun to reveal the secret language of the body and how cells talk to each other to keep the body healthy. This phenomenon is known as Cell Signaling or Skin Cell Activation which occurs when cells release proteins which are then detected by surrounding cells to trigger a healing response—a response that produces new collagen and elastin for healthier-looking skin.

PicoSure’s technology harnesses the body’s natural healing process to restore youthful skin in ways never before possible using proprietary Focus Lens Technology.

Skin Revitalization

Your body already has what it takes to help you look and feel younger; PicoSure will put it to work for you.

PicoSure’s PressureWave technology uses a unique wavelength of light (755nm) and a specialized lens to convert laser energy into gentle pressure. This pressure squeezes cells, activating the natural cell signaling processes that create new collagen and elastin without burning or damaging the skin.

Tattoo Removal

Lasers do not remove tattoos, your body does. Let PicoSure help with this natural process. During treatments with PicoSure the Pressure Wave technology is used to deliver ultra-short pulses of specialized energy to targeted ink particles. These pulses are so rapid that they cause and change in pressure that breaks ink apart into dust-like particles. These tiny particles are then absorbed by the lymphatic system, a critical part of your body’s immune system and eliminated naturally.

Think Inside the Cells and Outside the Box

Focus treatments with PicoSure laser activate your body’s natural skin cell processes for healthy, more youthful-looking skin. Only Focus treatments lighten unwanted pigment AND uniquely stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin—keys to younger-looking skin—without the pain or downtime of other laser treatments.

  • Skin Cell Activation initiates dermal remodeling,
    reducing the appearance of wrinkles and acne scars.
  • High and low intensity energy lightens unwanted pigment
    such as freckles and age spots
  • A few hours of mild redness vs. 2-6 days of
    downtime with other laser procedures

Other lasers promise to treat wrinkles, acne scars and blemishes, but only PicoSure with Skin Cell Activation uses pressure to deliver impressive results.

What Patients Are Saying…

FAQS

PicoSure represents the cutting edge of a type of laser technology known as short-pulse lasers. These lasers are designed to “flash” incredibly quickly, in PicoSure’s case in trillionths of a second. This rapid flashing minimizes the amount of heat and creates a photomechanical effect that’s highly effective in removing tattoo ink and unwanted pigment.
As the leading picosecond laser, PicoSure is able to treat all colors of tattoo ink on patients of all skin-types, so it’s very likely that PicoSure could work for you! Plus, PicoSure has been shown to remove tattoos in fewer treatments so speak to your local provider to about a treatment plan that’s right for you.
PicoSure is the most versatile short-pulse laser in the world, allowing it to treat a wide variety of pigment conditions as well as acne scars and wrinkles. While other aesthetic products and lasers can treat similar conditions, PicoSure is the only way to achieve great results without the pain, redness and downtime.
PicoSure’s ultra-fast pulses and specialized wavelengths work together to minimize the amount of heat that is transferred. Less heat means less damage to surrounding skin and less risk of injury.
Most people experience very little discomfort and describe skin revitalization treatments as feeling like the snapping of a rubber band. Because tattoo removal treatments use more energy, patients may experience more discomfort, but your treatment provider should be able to offer numbing cream or other aids to minimize discomfort.
Procedure time depends on the size of the area to be treated, and 10 minutes is common for average sized tattoo and skin revitalization treatments.
The sun exposes the skin to harmful radiation. To protect itself, the body produces extra melanin, causing the skin to tan. Since PicoSure targets melanin to remove excess pigment, a heavy tan may interfere with treatment. After laser treatments for removal of tattoos and unwanted pigment, the skin is more vulnerable to sunlight so minimizing sun exposure and use of sunscreen of SPF30+ is recommended.
The number of PicoSure treatments for unwanted pigmentation will vary depending on the condition being treated and how each individual responds. For tattoo removal, the size, location and density of ink play important roles in how quickly clearance can be achieved, but 4-10 treatments* is common for modern tattoos. Your treatment provider will be able to evaluate and provide you with a personalized plan. The number of treatments for skin revitalization is largely dependent on the clinical condition being addressed but 2-5 treatments are common. Your treatment provider will be able to provide you with a personalized plan.
Tattoo removal and acne scar results are permanent. Skin revitalization treatment results are long lasting, but some pigment conditions can be recurrent. Some patients find that a PicoSure Focus treatment every six months can help prevent accumulation of pigment and slow the appearance of wrinkles.
PicoSure is designed with safety in mind and incidents of scarring are very rare. Tattoo removal treatments require more energy than skin revitalization and some patients may experience hypopigmentation (a lightening in skin color of the treated area) but this is usually temporary and normal skin is typically restored once healing is complete.
Recovery times are dependent on the condition being treated and each patient’s ability to heal. Typical treatment intervals are 2-6 weeks for pigmented lesions and 6-8 weeks for tattoo removal. Treatments for acne scars and wrinkles using the Focus lens array can be performed every 3-4 weeks. Your treatment provider will create a personalized treatment plan for you.
