PicoSure Laser Overview
PicoSure’s advanced technology is a breakthrough for those seeking a way to remove stubborn tattoos or to reduce the signs of aging without having to deal with the pain, downtime, and risks of traditional laser treatments. Using a unique energy delivery that does not heat or damage the skin, PicoSure gently disrupts pigment responsible for skin discoloration, then creates pressure waves in the skin’s dermal layers, signaling the cells to start repairing the skin naturally.
The team of world-renowned dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego are proud to be the home of the FIRST PicoSure laser in Southern California. In addition to PicoWay, we are also pleased to offer you the PiQo4 and PicoWay lasers and their innovative ways to treat a wide variety of your complexion concerns.
PicoSure can safely and effectively treat:
- Acne or surgical scarring
- Benign pigmented lesions
- Tattoos (all ink colors)

What to Expect
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 without harming surrounding skin, resulting in fewer treatments and a faster rate of skin clearance. And since its mechanism is photo-mechanical rather than photo-thermal, the epidermis is not disrupted, ensuring more comfort and reduced skin redness. PicoSure can also be used on virtually all skin colors. To learn more about Picoway, visit ncbi.nlm.nih.gov
Picosure for Skin Rejuvenation
In addition to being an efficient multicolor removal system, PicoSure is also one of the best devices for skin rejuvenation. While damaged skin cells are broken down, the body harnesses its own healing process and forms new collagen and elastin, which both contribute to the skin’s firm and youthful appearance. In a study performed by Dr. Wu, patients receiving Picosure treatment to the chest reported significant improvements in discoloration, skin texture, fine lines, and wrinkles after just 3 treatments (Lasers Surg Med. 2016 Feb;48(2):188-92).
