What Is Picosecond Laser Tattoo Removal Machine?
Dr. Geronemus, clinical professor of dermatology at New York University Medical Center and founder of the university’s laser program, says picosecond lasers offer a faster and more complete response than traditional tattoo removal approaches, such as nanosecond laser technology.
The dermatologist describes the new paradigm as, “Picosecond at 755 nm for blue and green tattoo removal in one to three sessions; picosecond laser at 532 nm for rapid removal of yellow, red and orange tattoos; and picosecond laser at 1064 nm for tattoos in darker skin types.”
The researchers found the picosecond laser cleared tattoos faster than the nanosecond technology. Red, yellow and orange pigments seemed to respond best to the 532 nm picosecond laser, with 75% to 100% clearance after an average of two treatments in most cases. Seven tattoos containing black ink responded equally well after one to two treatments to the 755 nm and 1064 nm picosecond lasers. One treatment resulted in 75% clearance of the red pigment in nine tattoos. In two of the people studied, the red pigment was gone after three treatments.
