How Does PicoSure Tattoo Removal Work?

Although Q-switched tattoo removal lasers have been a mainstay in the treatment of unwanted tattoos, a new gold standard in tattoo removal has arrived with PicoSure.  PicoSure’s ultra-short pulses (one trillionth of a second) target the ink particles to shatter them into tiny particles that is easily absorbed and eliminated by your body.  PicoSure often requires fewer treatments than traditional Q-switched lasers and works with multicolored tattoos and even “stalled” tattoos that have become refractory to other lasers.
