According to research from Medical Insight, Inc., 21% of all adults in the U.S. have at least one tattoo. However, about half of those who have tattoos want them removed at some point in life.
Laser or energy systems are routinely used to remove tattoos, but the
process often requires multiple, and at times, painful treatment sessions to
achieve results. By comparison, PicoSure, the world's first picosecond aesthetic
laser, removes tattoos faster, more completely and with less pain.
Traditional lasers rely on photothermal action that breaks up tattoo pigment by heating it and the surrounding tissue.
PicoSure uses PressureWave Technology to shatter the tattoo ink into tiny particles that your body can easily eliminate.
PicoSure accomplishes this by delivering ultra-short pulse bursts of energy
to the skin in trillionths of a second. This creates an intense photomechanical
impact, Cynosure's patented PressureWave ™, shattering the tattoo ink
into tiny particles that are easily eliminated from the body. This results
in better clearance with fewer treatments and without injury to the surrounding
skin. Even dark, stubborn blue and green inks, as well as previously-treated,
recalcitrant tattoos can be removed.
