PicoSure is the world’s first picosecond aesthetic laser, widely recognized for its technology leadership, proven performance, and industry-leading body of clinical evidence. Capable of skin revitalization with virtually no downtime and all-color tattoo removal, it is a unique practice addition that will make both physicians and patients happy.
Unlike most other picosecond devices, PicoSure utilizes a 755nm wavelength that inherently targets melanin over hemoglobin which makes it ideal for treating pigmentary conditions.
In trillionths of a second, the 755nm energy relies less on the photothermal action of longer-pulsed devices, instead creating an intense photomechanical impact. This spares skin of high thermal damage and results in greater disruption of the target chromophore for better clearance with fewer treatments using less energy.
Additionally, and in concert, the 755nm wavelength is able to target black, blue, and green tattoo inks. Coupled with the optional 532nm delivery system, PicoSure can treat all tattoo colors with two wavelengths* – that’s right, PicoSure can handle Roy G. Biv.
And it gets better.
How it works
For skin, the combination of a picosecond pulse duration and the 755nm wavelength’s natural affinity for melanin allow for the safe, effective, and fast treatment of many pigmentary conditions. Introduce the Focus lens to the equation and unlock a truly unique procedure: skin revitalization with virtually no downtime.
For tattoos, the picosecond pulse width shatters ink particles with an intense photomechanical pressure making it easy for the body to process. Boost™ Adjustable Pressure shortens the pulse width even more to treat stubborn or resistant ink.**
Why it matters to your patients
Science is fascinating. Results are amazing.
After a series of treatments, patients are seeing the lightening and brightening they want without the downtime they don’t. The increase in collagen and elastin can make for a visible difference in the appearance of acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles while the laser energy also works to clear unwanted pigment. With demonstrated safety in all skin types, patients around the world can feel comfortable knowing PicoSure treatments are a safe and effective option.
PicoSure with Focus features:
• 15-minute treatments
• Only 1-6 hours of mild redness – minimal downtime
• Increased collagen and elastin resulting in dermal remodeling effect
• Lightening and brightening that patients want
• Safety in all skin types1
Skin, PicoSure has your back.

PicoSure 755 with Focus is FDA cleared to treat acne scars and wrinkles in skin types I-IV.
PicoSure is the first and only aesthetic picosecond laser for the safe and effective removal of tattoos and benign pigmented lesions, as well as acne scars, wrinkles and skin revitalization treatments. Clinical data shows better clearance in fewer treatments.
