PicoSure®

Harness your skin’s natural healing processes

Choose PicoSure® for comfortable and convenient tattoo removal and skin revitalization treatments for wrinkles, acne scars, pigment-like freckles, sunspots and discoloration with virtually no downtime.

Restore youthful, rejuvenated skin by unlocking your skin’s natural healing power. PicoSure works acoustically, not thermally so it doesn’t heat or damage the skin. Instead, it disrupts pigmented cells, stimulating the body to repair the injured cells. PicoSure aids the production of collagen and new skin cells.

Your body already has what it takes to help you look and feel younger. Let PicoSure put it to work for you.

What is PicoSure®?

PicoSure is the leading choice for comprehensive skin revitalization and comfortable, convenient tattoo removal. Targeted treatments are available for fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks, brown spots, pigment-like freckles, sunspots, tattoo removal and other types of skin discoloration.

How does it work?

Recent discoveries have begun to reveal the secret language of the body and how cells talk to each other to keep us healthy. Known as cell signaling, this biological communication occurs when cells are injured.  Proteins are then released and detected by surrounding cells, which triggers a healing response.

PicoSure works acoustically, not thermally so it doesn’t heat or damage the skin. Instead, it disrupts pigmented cells and then stimulates the body to repair the injured cells.

PicoSure’s PressureWave™ technology uses a unique wavelength of light (755nm) and a specialized lens to convert laser energy into gentle pressure. This pressure squeezes cells, activating the natural cell signaling processes that create new collagen and elastin.

Cell signaling initiates an enhanced inflammatory healing response that leads to increased collagen and elastin and ultimately revitalizes skin.

What can I expect?

PicoSure is a comfortable, convenient treatment with no downtime. Most treatments can be completed in 10 minutes. The number of treatments required to achieve desired results varies:

  • The number of treatments for skin revitalization is largely dependent on the clinical condition being addressed. 2-5 treatments are common.
  • For tattoo removal, the size, location and density of ink play important roles in how quickly clearance can be achieved. 4-10 treatments is common for modern tattoos.

Before & Afters

Frequently Asked Questions

What is PicoSure?

PicoSure is innovative technology and the first of a new generation of aesthetic lasers that don’t rely solely on heat to burn or melt away unwanted tattoo ink or melanin, the pigment that causes dark spots in your skin.

Instead of building up heat, PicoSure delivers energy so rapidly (in trillionths of a second) that the tiny particles which make up pigment and tattoo ink vibrate and shatter without burning the surrounding skin. Less heat means less tissue damage and discomfort.

PicoSure’s revolutionary technology is designed to harness the body’s natural healing processes to restore youthful skin in ways never before possible. Using proprietary Focus lens technology, PicoSure effectively converts the laser energy into gentle pressure waves that activate cell signaling, the body’s natural healing process.

How do I know if PicoSure is the right skin revitalization treatment for me?

PicoSure is the most versatile short-pulse laser in the world, allowing it to treat a wide variety of pigment conditions as well as acne scars and wrinkles. While other aesthetic products and lasers can treat similar conditions, PicoSure is the only way to achieve great results without the pain, redness and downtime.

How do I know if PicoSure is the right tattoo removal laser for me?

As the leading picosecond laser, PicoSure is able to treat all colors of tattoo ink on patients of all skin-types, so it’s very likely that PicoSure could work for you! Plus, PicoSure has been shown to remove tattoos in fewer treatments.

We’ll tailor a treatment plan that’s right for you.

Is PicoSure safe?

PicoSure’s ultra-fast pulses and specialized wavelengths work together to minimize the amount of heat that is transferred. Less heat means less damage to surrounding skin and less risk of injury.

What does the procedure feel like?

Most people experience very little discomfort and describe skin revitalization treatments as feeling like a slight snapping of a rubber band. Because tattoo removal treatments use more energy, patients may experience a bit more discomfort and may opt for numbing cream or other aids to minimize discomfort.

How long does the procedure take?

Procedure time depends on the size of the area to be treated, and 10 minutes is common for average sized tattoo and skin revitalization treatments.

Do I have to avoid the sun before and after treatments?

The sun exposes skin to harmful radiation. To protect itself, the body produces extra melanin, causing the skin to tan. Since PicoSure targets melanin to remove excess pigment, a heavy tan may interfere with treatment. After laser treatments for removal of tattoos and unwanted pigment, the skin is more vulnerable to sunlight. Minimize sun exposure and practice daily sun safety by using a sunscreen with SPF 30+ broad-spectrum coverage. 

How many treatments are necessary?

The number of PicoSure treatments for unwanted pigmentation will vary depending on the condition being treated and how each individual responds.

  • For tattoo removal, the size, location and density of ink play important roles in how quickly clearance can be achieved. 4-10 treatments is common for modern tattoos.
  • The number of treatments for skin revitalization is largely dependent on the clinical condition being addressed. 2-5 treatments are common.
