While there are many different types of lasers available in the market that targets different skin conditions, PicoSure Laser has recently emerged as the gold standard for laser treatments, with many of the advantages it has over the more traditional forms of lasers.
What is PicoSure Laser?
PicoSure Laser delivers pulses of energy at a targeted skin area in picoseconds, which is much faster than the nanosecond lasers. These short burst of energy can treat our skin's areas of concern without damaging the surrounding skin, and treats hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and removes tattoos effectively.
Advantages of PicoSure Laser

Since PicoSure Laser works much faster, with more shots being delivered in the same amount of time as compared to other lasers, patients will require fewer sessions to complete their entire treatment.

As compared to other lasers, like Q-switch lasers, patients will experience less pain. So for those of you who are pain-aversed, you have one thing less to worry about.
- 3. Better results
When it comes to tattoo removal, we always hear that coloured pigments are difficult to remove. However, PicoSure Laser is effective is clearing up even the coloured inks. You should check with your doctor to see if for your suitability because there may be others factors that can affect the results.
