How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?

PicoSure treatment, like other tattoo removal technologies, uses a laser to gently deliver energy to the tattoo, targeting the ink and shattering it into tiny particles. These tattoo particles are then eliminated by the body through natural processes resulting in a lightening of the tattoo ink.

PicoSure laser tattoo removal technology is unique and highly effective due to its ultra-short pulse duration which goes beyond photothermal action creating an intense photomechanical impact. This patented PressureWave™ results in greater disruption of the targeted tatoo for better clearance with fewer treatments and without injury to the surrounding skin. Even dark, stubborn blue and green inks, as well as previously-treated, recalcitrant tattoos can be removed.

Picosure is Clinically Proven and FDA-Approved

The laser was tested in a clinical study where 22 patients showed an average of 94% tattoo removal over 2 weeks of treatment. A second study reinforced those results, with most patients showing marked tattoo clearance in just 1 to 5 treatments. The PicoSure laser was FDA approved in 2012. It is manufactured by Cynosure, a leader in laser technology for cosmetic use.
