How Does Laser Tattoo Removal Work?
PicoSure represents a major advancement over older Q-switched Nd: YAG laser technologies. PicoSure is equipped with a picosecond laser that can remove tattoos faster than ever before.* PicoSure’s powerful laser light pulses shatter underlying tattoo inks into microscopic particles that the immune system can naturally eliminate from the body. The full spectrum of colored tattoo inks, including notoriously difficult to remove blue and green inks, can be treated.* PicoSure laser treatments are safe and cause fewer side effects than outdated laser technologies.*
