Anti-Aging and Tattoo Removal Treatments*
For tattoo removal, PicoSure® relies on pressure waves to break down ink pigment in the skin. This causes the pigment to break up into much smaller particles, which are then removed by the body’s lymphatic system. Multiple treatments are required to completely remove a tattoo.

A skin laser designed to treat various signs of aging, and to remove tattoos.
There are several things that make this device different from other lasers on the market.
Firstly, it uses shorter bursts of light. Many lasers today deliver bursts in nanoseconds, or a billionth of a second. PicoSure®, on the other hand, uses picoseconds, or a trillionth of a second. The goal of shortening these bursts is to reduce the amount of heat delivered to the skin and the associated damage to the surrounding tissues.
Secondly, it utilizes a special lens on the device, which converts light energy into short bursts of pressure. Instead of coagulating or damaging skin cells with heat, the waves of pressure disturb skin cells; a process that jump starts the body’s healing processes.
