Our clinic’s selection of technologies and treatment options continues to grow with the recent addition of another high-caliber laser: the PicoSure™.
How Does The PicoSure™ Laser Work?
We’re particularly impressed with the hardworking duality of this laser: it has the ability to rejuvenate skin and improve the appearance of acne scars without the typical downtime or discomfort of other laser skin resurfacing treatments, and it’s currently considered one of the best options for laser tattoo removal.
Fast Facial Rejuvenation With Microtoning
By applying a special handpiece (FOCUS Lens Array) to the laser, the PicoSure can be utilized for a milder rejuvenation treatment known as “microtoning.” Compared to similar treatments such as Fraxel laser, PicoSure is gentler with minimal downtime. The treatment is quick and can be used to lighten dark spots, improve uneven skin tone and texture, and reduce fine lines.
PicoSure’s technology gently delivers ultra-short pulses of energy to increase density and length of elastin fibers and safely remodels collagen, which results in restoring normal skin elasticity in the tissue, thereby reducing the appearance of scars. Treatments usually take between 15 to 20 minutes. It is normal for your skin to appear red or feel flush after treatment. Redness is also typical and may last 1-2 days.
Rapid Laser Tattoo Removal
The PicoSure technology is a significant advancement from previous laser tattoo removal technologies. Before PicoSure laser technology, it was difficult to remove or fade multicoloured tattoos, especially those with blue and green ink, which are traditionally more resistant to treatment.
The unique pressure-wave technology of the PicoSure laser has three benefits:
- Removes tattoos in fewer treatments than conventional lasers.
- Shatters the ink particles into much smaller fragments, enabling the body to remove them more efficiently.
- Removes dark and stubborn colours, such as blue and green inks, as well as previously treated recalcitrant tattoos.
In addition, our clinic utilizes the dual wavelength PicoSure to treat multicoloured tattoos. This second wavelength (532nm) is more effective in the removal of yellow, red and orange inks.
