Pico Laser is the treatment of choice for dermal pigmentation and tattoos.
The Pico-second technology is faster, more powerful, safer, more effective, and has less risk of unwanted scarring and other side effects than older Q-switched laser systems. Pico Lasers are also less painful and less damaging to surrounding tissue due to its predominantly photo-acoustic (shockwave) effect and very minimal photo-thermal (heat) effect.
For Dermal Pigmentation
The Pico Laser targets and selectively disintegrates dark pigment concentrations in the dermis. The pigment is broken up into smaller particles that are more easily eliminated by the body’s natural processes.
It is non-ablative and will not cause superficial skin damage, with minimal redness and virtually no blistering or bleeding. Very little heat is emitted, reducing the risk of hyper-pigmentation which can sometimes develop after laser procedures.
The laser of choice to removing colours of all types on both light and dark skin. Pico Laser is capable of remove deeper ink than any other laser before it. A higher energy setting is required for tattoos compared to dermal pigmentation.
