PicoSure Laser Overview
The team of world-renowned dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego are pleased to be the home of the FIRST PicoSure Laser in Southern California and the only practice in San Diego with PicoSure!
Picosure is one of the newest advancements in cosmetic laser technology. This laser has been proven time and time again as one of the most revolutionary treatments available for the quick and easy removal of unwanted tattoos and non-cancerous skin pigment problems.
What to Expect
Unlike other laser treatments responsible for improving similar skin problems, picosecond technology allows for improved results like never seen before. Though most lasers work by delivering quick pulses of light energy into a targeted area of the skin, the PicoSure system pulses at an astonishing rate 100 times shorter than nanosecond technology. This allows for an unparalleled photochemical impact, resulting in fewer treatments for the patients and a faster rate of skin clearance.
In a study done by the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of New York, 22 individuals with multicolored tattoos received treatments with the PicoSure laser system over a two week period. In this short time frame, patients reported their tattoos to be more than 80% clear, with typically difficult blue and green ink showing a clearance of 94%. picosure.com has more information about how effective this laser is for tattoo removal.
