How does PICO Laser Light Tattoo Removal

Traditionally, tattoo ink being targeted by Q-switched laser will be ‘melted’ and then be removed by the body. Pico laser, being the most powerful laser in its class, is able to shatter the tattoo ink into much smaller particles before melting it away. This shattering effect (photo-acoustic) is due to high power + ultrafast pulse of Pico laser.


The number of treatment sessions required is also significantly reduced as compared to the use of traditional laser, e.g. a black ink tattoo requires 10 sessions of traditional laser can be removed with Pico laser in just 5 sessions.
