In short, this is a safe, versatile, and effective option for tattoo removal, skin rejuvenation, and more.

What’s the advantage of PicoSure over other options?
There are many reasons that we often recommend PicoSure. First of all, the way the pressure waves work, they provide better disruption of the targeted area. What does this mean for you? It means that you can expect to get a better results with fewer treatments. This option also doesn’t injure the surrounding skin. It works even on blue and green inks – both of which can be difficult to remove with other methods – and recalcitrant tattoos.
Why does the length of the pulse matter?
When you get into the nitty gritty of what makes this a great option, you’ll hear about the fact that it has an ultra-short pulse duration. But what does this mean – and how does it affect the outcome? First, consider that the picosecond pulse width is one hundred times shorter than nanosecond technology that’s also often used. With this incredibly short pulse duration, a photomechanical effect is achieved – which is a major part of why it’s so successful.
If that isn’t simple enough, consider this: With the ultrashort pulse, only half the fluence is needed when you compare it to the nanosecond lasers other wellness centers often use.
What’s the simplest explanation of what PicoSure is?
At Rancho Wellness, we encourage you to give us a call if you need more personalized information on what PicoSure is and what it can do. That said, the most important facts to take away from this blog are these: This is an FDA approved laser technology. It uses very short bursts of energy to repair skin and remove tattoos. These bursts are measured in picoseconds – a trillionth of a second – which is where they get their name. The main advantages are that they can do a better job in a shorter number of appointments.
