Picosecond vs. Nanosecond Technology - Traditional nanosecond lasers predominantly rely on photothermal action, delivering heat to the pigment and surrounding tissue.

PicoSure takes advantage of PressureWave Technology to shatter the targeted ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body.

Ultra-short Pulse duration is the difference:

·  Picosecond pulse width is 100 times shorter than nanosecond technology.

·  Only ultra-short pulse durations trigger a photomechanical effect.

·  With this short pulse width, half the fluence is required compared to nanosecond lasers.
