How does it work?
These ultra-short picosecond laser beams do not cause heating up of the skin, unlike traditional HIFU (high-intensity focused ultrasound), RF (radio-frequency) treatments or CO2 or Erbium-Yag laser treatments.
Instead, it relies on focusing the photo-acoustic effects of the Picosecond pulse duration into a nano-zone, resulting in an explosive skin reaction that lifts the skin, resurfacing scars and tattoos.
For tattoo removal, the innovative FracPICO treatment creates nano-size holes in the skin over the tattoo area prior to the main laser procedure. This pre-treatment “priming” pass enables steam, gasses and ink particles to more easily escape through the skin during the subsequent full-beam Picolaser pass, thus avoiding the ‘frosting’ effect. This allows for a very short waiting time between multiple passes, which can reduce the typical number of treatment sessions by more than half.
There is minimal skin damage, which means low risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and short recovery time.
30 mins treatment with results that last for up to 3 months.
