We also point out that tattoo removal with laser can be done not only in the picosecond range, but also with nanosecond laser. Other methods include the Alexandrite laser, Nd:YAG laser or the ruby laser, just to mention a few.
However, the picosecond laser is the laser that should be preferred for aesthetic treatments and is the most commonly used. The reason is the width of the emitted light pulses, which is about one hundredth of the value of a nanolaser. The result is the fragmentation of the colored particles into infinitesimally small fragments, which can be easily transported away by the immune system or lymph. In this way, the skin is protected and the treatment is carried out without major physical stress.
In which frequency range does the picosecond laser work?
The wavelengths of a picosecond laser vary and are 532 nm, 694 nm, 785 nm as well as 1,064 nm. It is also worth mentioning that forms such as the ruby laser, alexandrite laser and the Nd:YAG laser can be had as both nanosecond lasers and picosecond lasers.
What else is the picolaser suitable for?
A picolaser is by no means only used in the removal of tattoos, but also in the removal of.
- age-related warts
- microblading and
- permanent make-up
Tattoos- what colors can be removed with the picosecond laser?
The wavelengths in which the different lasers work make it possible to remove tattoos in different colors. The reason lies in the different wavelengths, with the picosecond laser working as a Nd: YAG laser at a wavelength of 1,064 Nm. In this way, dark shades such as black, brown, blue and, in some cases, violet disappear. Another picosecond laser is used under the name ruby laser and stands for 694 Nm wavelength. Black and blue tattoos disappear in such a gentle way, moreover, a ruby laser is suitable for the color green, but less for brown tones.
The alexandrite laser is a real classic and is called a red light laser. Its wavelength is 755 nm and it is particularly suitable for tattoos with black, blue and green ink. Partially, the PicoSure® laser is also perfect for brown tattoos or their removal.
Also suitable for brown and violet tattoos is the laser version with 532 Nm, whereby red shades up to orange and yellow are also possible here.
What are the advantages of picosecond lasers for tattoo removal?
Picosecond lasers are a technology perfectly suited for the field of aesthetic medicine and beauty treatments. Due to the fact that the pulse frequency is high, removals can be made in the following areas. One plus that a picosecond laser offers over a nanoscale laser is the ability to remove green and blue pigment. This is possible due to the accelerated light pulses and thus shorter contact with the skin, which of course also shortens the treatment time.
