picosure laser

Technology in the cosmetic industry is always rapidly evolving. And laser technology has come a long way to provide cutting-edge treatments for breaking down unwanted skin pigments and tattoo ink, which can otherwise be difficult to eliminate. PicoSure laser is a breakthrough laser treatment that effectively rejuvenates the skin in various ways, including tough pigment that doesn’t respond to other types of treatment. 

Unlike traditional laser treatments that rely on heat to remove pigments and ink, PicoSure® PRO uses ultra-short energy pulses to shatter them into tiny particles that are more easily eliminated by the body’s natural healing processes.

In this article, we will discuss the science behind PicoSure laser and how it works to remove unwanted pigments and tattoos.

Understanding the Science Behind PicoSure® PRO

PicoSure® PRO is a picosecond laser, meaning it emits pulses of light in the picosecond range, which is one trillionth of a second. The ultra-short pulse duration of picosure laser means that the energy is delivered so quickly that it does not heat the surrounding tissue, minimizing the risk of damage to the skin.

The laser emits light at a specific wavelength absorbed by the pigments in the skin or tattoo ink. The energy from the laser is then converted into mechanical stress that causes the pigments or ink to fracture into tiny particles. These particles are small enough to be eliminated by the body’s immune system, resulting in gradual fading.

How PicoSure® PRO Targets and Breaks Down Skin Pigments

picosure laser can effectively target and break down a range of skin pigments, including freckles, age spots, and hyperpigmentation. These pigments are caused by an excess production of melanin, which gives our skin its color.

Melanin is produced by melanocytes, specialized cells in the skin. When exposed to sunlight or other sources of ultraviolet (UV) radiation, melanocytes produce more melanin as a protective measure against the damaging effects of UV radiation.

However, the overproduction of melanin can lead to the formation of dark spots on the skin. PicoSure® PRO can effectively target these pigments by emitting light at a specific wavelength that is absorbed by the melanin. The energy from the laser is then converted into mechanical stress that causes the melanin to fracture into tiny particles. These particles are eliminated by the body’s immune system, resulting in the gradual fading of the pigments.

One of the benefits of picosure laser is that it can target and break down pigments without damaging the surrounding tissue. The ultra-short pulse duration of the laser means that it can target only the pigmented cells while leaving the surrounding cells intact.

How Picosure Laser Targets and Breaks Down Tattoo Ink

Tattoo ink is made up of particles of various colors and sizes that are injected into the skin using a needle. Traditional laser tattoo removal works by delivering heat to the ink particles, causing them to break down into smaller fragments that the body’s immune system can eliminate. However, this process can be slow and can cause damage to the surrounding tissue. picosure laser uses a different approach that is faster and more effective.

PicoSure® PRO can effectively target and break down tattoo ink by emitting light at a specific wavelength that is absorbed by the ink particles. The ultra-short pulse duration of the laser means that it can deliver energy in such a short amount of time that it causes the ink particles to fracture into tiny fragments without heating the surrounding tissue.

The body’s immune system eliminates the fragmented ink particles, gradually fading the tattoo. Because picosure laser can effectively target and break down ink particles of different colors and sizes, it is an ideal choice for removing even the most stubborn tattoos.

Benefits of Picosure Laser

PicoSure® PRO offers several benefits over traditional laser treatments for pigments and tattoo removal. Some of the key benefits include:

  • Faster Results: PicoSure® PRO can deliver faster results than traditional laser treatments, especially on more troublesome tattoos that may not be easily removed through other techniques.
  • Fewer Treatments: PicoSure® PRO can achieve faster results with fewer treatments than other tattoo removal options.
  • Less Discomfort: picosure laser is more comfortable than traditional laser treatments. The laser does not heat the surrounding tissue, which can reduce discomfort during and after treatment.
  • Reduced Side Effects: picosure laser is associated with a lower risk of side effects than traditional laser treatments. The ultra-short pulse duration means it can target only the pigmented or inked cells while leaving the surrounding cells intact, reducing the risk of damage to the skin.
  • Versatile: PicoSure® PRO is a versatile technology that can treat a range of pigments and tattoos. It can effectively target and break down pigments and ink particles of different colors and sizes, making it an ideal choice for removing even the most stubborn tattoos and pigments.

Preparing for Picosure Laser Treatment

If you are considering PicoSure® PRO treatment for skin pigment or tattoo removal, it is important to prepare properly. Some things you can do include:

  • Avoid Sun Exposure: Sun exposure can increase the risk of side effects, such as hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation.
  • Avoid Certain Medications: Some medications, such as aspirin or blood thinners, can increase the risk of bleeding or bruising.
  • Stay Hydrated: Drink plenty of water before and after treatment to help flush out the broken-down pigments or ink particles.
  • Follow Your Doctor’s Instructions: Follow your doctor’s instructions for pre-treatment and post-treatment care. This may include avoiding certain activities or using certain skincare products.
  • Be Patient: Pigments and tattoo removal with picosure laser is a gradual process that may require multiple sessions. Be patient and follow your doctor’s recommended treatment plan for the best results.

The Bottom Line

picosure laser is a state-of-the-art laser technology that effectively targets and breaks down various skin pigments and tattoo ink. It is efficient, safer, and more gentle on the surrounding skin during the procedure. This results in faster clearance of pigments and tattoos, with fewer treatments and a lower risk of side effects.

This may be the right laser treatment option if you want to remove a tattoo or eliminate stubborn skin pigmentation. When considering picosure laser treatment, it is important to consult a qualified professional to ensure this is the right choice for your skin. During a consultation, your laser technician will create a custom treatment plan, including how many sessions you may need to achieve your desired outcome.
