PicoSure is unprecedented innovation in laser technology PicoSure® is the world’s first, fastest and most effective picosecond aesthetic laser. This unparalleled breakthrough in laser technology delivers ultra-short pulse bursts of energy to the skin in trillionths of a second. Picosecond pulse width is 100 times shorter than nanosecond technology, enabling unmatched photomechanical impact for better clearance with fewer treatments and less fluence.
Boost adjustable pressure
Boost amplifies PicoSure’s PressureWave™ to levels never before possible. Magnifying pressure 70% and shortening pulse widths to 550ps allows for unprecedented treatment options. Boost is ideal for recalcitrant tattoos and enhanced shattering of pigment for optimised results.
Skin Rejuvenation with Focus Lens Array
Picosecond technology combined with the powerful Focus Lens Array has shown excellent skin revitalisation outcomes and is available here at Laser Skin Centre!
PicoSure’s ultra-short pulse duration goes beyond photothermal action creating an intense photomechanical impact, patented PressureWave™, resulting in greater disruption of the target for better clearance with fewer treatments, less fluence and without injury to the surrounding skin. Even dark, stubborn blue and green inks, as well as previously-treated, recalcitrant tattoos can be removed.
Picosecond vs. nanosecond technology
Traditional nanosecond lasers predominately rely on photothermal action, delivering heat to the pigment and surrounding tissue. PicoSure takes advantage of PressureWave Technology to shatter the target ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body.
Ultra-short pulse duration is the difference
- Picosecond pulse width is 100X shorter than nanosecond technology.
- Only ultrashort pulse durations trigger a photomechanical effect.
- With the PicoSure short pulse width, half the fluence is required compared to Q-Switched nanosecond lasers.
