Non-Surgical Tattoo Removal & Skin Rejuvenation Laser

PicoSure® is a non-surgical laser skin treatment that is FDA approved for tattoo removal, the treatment of acne scars and reducing the signs of aging. It is the first laser treatment to utilize picosecond technology and is showing impressive results.

Lasers do one thing and one thing only. They create a beam of light energy (in the form of particles called photons) that are all the same wavelength (same color) and traveling in the same direction. These allow lasers to do incredible things. For example, we can bounce a laser off of a barcode and read that barcode, which is done millions of times a day in grocery stores around the world. We can use lasers to cut material in manufacturing plants. We can bounce a laser off the moon to measure the exact distance to the moon. We can use lasers in medicine to treat disease and to make us more attractive.

How Does Laser Resurfacing Work?

Because there is no heat absorption and no destruction of the skin surface, there is much less discomfort compared to Fraxel or traditional laser resurfacing pain. Many people do not consider the PicoSure® treatment to be painful, describing it as a pulsing sensation. Others say that there is some discomfort (3-4/10) but by no means is it painful. For those who feel some discomfort, numbing medicine is available to reduce even this little discomfort.

If you are interested in improving your appearance and revitalizing your skin, come in and speak to Dr. Kimberly Finder and her staff. They will be happy to tell you more about this revolutionary laser and what it can do for you.

Why Is PicoSure® Revolutionary?

We have all had this happen. We accidentally knock something over. Often it falls before we can react but occasionally we react so quickly that we grab it before it falls. When you think of all the steps that have to happen for your brain to process what is going on and then to move your muscles to react, we can see that our bodies react very quickly. Chemical reactions in our bodies are very quick, in the millisecond and even microsecond range.

When the pulse width is long enough (distance from the first photon to the last photon), the energy is absorbed slow enough to heat the target and we use this heat to alter cells, such as hair follicles, or remodel collagen. In almost all cases, the laser is used to create heat. It is this heat that creates wounds and that causes the pain with treatments.

The PicoSure® is different. The pulse width is so short that all the photons in the beam hit the target at almost the exact same time. Not quite, but so close that for all practical purposes the photons in the beam all arrive together. The photons arrive so fast that rather than a heating effect it creates a shockwave in the target. We can create this shockwave without having to use as much power, which reduces discomfort and any reactions (downtime).

When the target is a tattoo particle, it breaks up the tattoo ink into smaller particles allowing the body to remove the ink. The shock wave created by the PicoSure® is so efficient that it can remove a tattoo in 3 to 4 treatments when conventional lasers need 12 to 15 treatments, or even more.

But it turns out that there is something even more revolutionary about the PicoSure®.
