How PicoSure Works

The PicoSure laser transmits ultra-short pulses of heat energy into the skin. These pulses remove the tattoo ink under your skin. Once these ink particles are broken apart, they are naturally absorbed in your body and cause the tattoo to disappear. Since the PicoSure laser uses picosecond-range energy pulses, it can remove tattoos in less time and with fewer treatments than conventional lasers.

Believe it or not, PicoSure’s revolutionary Wave technology can deliver laser energy up to 100 times faster than conventional Q-switch tattoo removal lasers that rely on heat in order to destroy the tattoo ink. The PicoSure laser can do wonders on multi-colored tattoos including green and black ones as well as stubborn tattoos that were treated in the past.  In fact, it’s first FDA-cleared medical laser that can treat all tattoo colors.
