Why Picosure is superior to Q-switched technology
Picosure’s ultra short pulse length results in a photomechanical pressure wave that breaks the ink into much smaller particles than conventional nanosecond lasers. Smaller particles are more easily removed by the body’s white blood cells. The result is more ink is removed with each treatment episode and fewer treatments overall.
The longer a laser is on the more heat is transferred to the skin. More heat equates to more injury and inflammation. By using these 100 times shorter pulses far less heating occurs with Picosure treatments. The result is less pain and greatly reduced risk of damage to the skin.
Dual wavelengths and Boost Technology
Having both 532 and 755 nm wavelengths enables broad access to the entire colour spectrum. This now allows all inks to be removed with picosecond technology.
Boost amplifies PicoSures PressureWave™ to levels never before possible. Magnifying pressure 70% and shortening pulse widths to 550ps, allows for unprecendented treament options. Boost is ideal for recalcitrant tattoos and enhanced shattering of pigment for optimised results
