The world’s FIRST picosecond laser for:

  • Tattoo removal
  • Acne Scar Treatment
  • Removal of pigmented lesions
  • Wrinkle Treatment

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 photomechanical effect.
  • With this short pulse width, half the fluence is required compared to Q-Switched nanosecond lasers.
