What makes it so unique

Unlike most other picosecond devices, PicoSure utilizes a 755nm wavelength that inherently targets melanin over hemoglobin which makes it ideal for treating pigmentary conditions.

In trillionths of a second, the 755nm energy relies less on the photothermal action of longer-pulsed devices, instead creating an intense photomechanical impact. This spares skin of high thermal damage and results in greater disruption of the target chromophore for better clearance with fewer treatments using less energy.

Additionally, and in concert, the 755nm wavelength is able to target black, blue, and green tattoo inks. Coupled with the optional 532nm delivery system, PicoSure can treat all tattoo colors with two wavelengths* – that’s right, PicoSure can handle Roy G. Biv.

And it gets better.

The revolutionary Focus™ Lens Array

The headline says it all. The Focus Lens Array is a breakthrough diffractive lens enabling skin revitalization with virtually no downtime not possible with any other laser platform.

Through a unique mechanism of action, Focus precisely redistributes and delivers 755nm energy to the skin. Both high and low intensity energy lightens and clears unwanted pigment while the high energy creates laser-induced optical breakdowns (LIOBs) in the epidermis.

These LIOBs are intra-epidermal cavitations that form so quickly they create pressure waves that impact surrounding cells, activating cell signaling and initiating an enhanced inflammatory healing response.

As the LIOB is located intra-epidermally courtesy of 755, there is less risk for side effects from energy passing through the dermoepidermal junction. This elegant epidermal interaction leads to increased collagen and elastin production in the dermis for a unique revitalization effect not seen in any other device.

Patients treated with Focus experience only a few hours of mild redness with pigment, wrinkle, and acne scar results comparable to more aggressive technologies after a recommended series of treatments.

How it works

For skin, the combination of a picosecond pulse duration and the 755nm wavelength’s natural affinity for melanin allow for the safe, effective, and fast treatment of many pigmentary conditions. Introduce the Focus lens to the equation and unlock a truly unique procedure: skin revitalization with virtually no downtime.

For tattoos, the picosecond pulse width shatters ink particles with an intense photomechanical pressure making it easy for the body to process. Boost™ Adjustable Pressure shortens the pulse width even more to treat stubborn or resistant ink.**

Why it matters to your patients

Science is fascinating. Results are amazing.

After a series of treatments, patients are seeing the lightening and brightening they want without the downtime they don’t. The increase in collagen and elastin can make for a visible difference in the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles while the laser energy also works to clear unwanted pigment. With demonstrated safety in all skin types, patients around the world can feel comfortable knowing PicoSure treatments are a safe and effective option.

PicoSure with Focus features:

  • 15-minute treatments
  • Only 1-6 hours of mild redness – minimal downtime
  • Increased collagen and elastin resulting in dermal remodeling effect
  • Lightening and brightening that patients want
  • Safety in all skin types1
