PicoSure Q & A

What is the PicoSure laser?

PicoSure is a comfortable, convenient choice for clients with various aesthetic skin concerns. Unlike other laser systems, PicoSure doesn’t rely solely on heat to remove unwanted pigment or ink. Instead, PicoSure uses advanced technology to deliver targeted bursts of energy that break up pigment and ink without causing damage to the surrounding tissue. PicoSure also promotes the body’s own healing process by stimulating the production of elastin and collagen.

What types of treatment are available?

UnTattooU uses the PicoSure laser to treat clients with a variety of needs, including:

  • Laser tattoo removal
  • Acne scar removal
  • Treatment of melasma - The practice only treats melasma when there is a diagnosis from a doctor
  • Freckle removal
  • Wrinkle reduction

Is PicoSure safe?

The FDA has cleared PicoSure for use in wrinkle and acne scar treatment, removal of benign pigmented lesions, and tattoo removal.

Does treatment with PicoSure hurt?

The PicoSure laser administers energy at a specialized wavelength and a fast pulse to minimize the amount of heat transferred to the client’s skin during treatment. This reduces the amount of damage to the skin around the treatment area. It also reduces the amount of pain the client experiences.

Most people who undergo treatment with PicoSure describe the sensation experienced during treatment as similar to a rubber band snapped against the skin. In cases where more energy is required for treatment, UnTattooU will use local anesthetics to reduce or eliminate the client’s discomfort.

How long does treatment take?

The length of each treatment session varies considerably based on the type of treatment requested. In many cases, UnTattooU can complete a session in as little as 10 minutes.

Some types of treatment, such as tattoo removal, may require more than one session to complete. The team at UnTattooU can estimate the number of required sessions for each client before treatment begins.

How long will the results of treatment last?

The results of some types of treatment, such as scar removal and tattoo removal, are permanent. The results of skin revitalization will last for a significant amount of time, but some issues may eventually reappear. If this occurs, the client can have another round of treatment with PicoSure.
