What is PicoSure Pro?

The PicoSure Pro  represents Laser tattoo removal at it’s finest. It offers advanced technologies, combined into one machine, that promises excellent results for tatoo removal anywhere on the body.

This laser therapy’s secret is its ultra-short energy pulses, measured in picoseconds (hence the name), enabling precise treatment of various skin issues with minimal thermal impact on surrounding tissues.

Benefits of PicoSure for Tattoo Removal

Unmatched Precision with Picosecond Laser Pulses

Cynosure’s PicoSure laser revolutioniSes tattoo removal with its three available wavelengths, harnessing the power of picosecond laser pulses. These pulses generate a photomechanical effect known as PressureWave, targeting tattoo ink particles with unparalleled precision. This method not only shatters the ink into minuscule fragments for the body to easily eliminate but also minimiSes thermal damage to the surrounding skin, ensuring a safer and more effective removal process.

Enhanced Tattoo Removal with Focus Lens Array (FLA) Technology

PicoSure’s cutting-edge Focus Lens Array (FLA) technology further elevates its tattoo removal capabilities. By utiliSing a shortened pulse width, FLA concentrates increased laser power on smaller areas, specifically targeting stubborn ink particles. This focused approach allows for more significant disruption of the tattoo ink, yielding visible results after just one session and making it a superior choice for tackling challenging tattoos.

PicoSure vs. Traditional Tattoo Removal Methods

Compared to traditional tattoo removal techniques, PicoSure offers a significant advancement by reducing reliance on thermal energy. This innovation leads to shorter recovery times and fewer potential side effects, setting a new standard in tattoo removal. The picosecond technology not only facilitates a more comfortable treatment experience but also achieves faster, more noticeable results in fewer sessions, distinguishing PicoSure as a preferred method for patients and practitioners alike.

PicoSure Laser for Comprehensive Tattoo Removal

Beyond its precision and efficiency, PicoSure excels in removing a wide range of tattoo inks, including those traditionally considered difficult to erase, such as blues and greens. By stimulating the body’s natural healing processes, PicoSure not only removes unwanted tattoos but also promotes healthier-looking skin in the treated area. Patients often report a significant improvement in the appearance of their skin, with tattoos becoming a thing of the past. PicoSure’s ability to deliver clearer skin without the lengthy and often painful process associated with other lasers makes it a game-changer in the field of tattoo removal.


PicoSure laser technology has revolutionised the field of tattoo removal, offering faster and more effective results compared to traditional methods. PicoSure utilizes ultra-short pulses of energy measured in picoseconds to target ink particles within the skin, shattering them into smaller fragments that are more easily absorbed and eliminated by the body’s natural processes.

One of the key advantages of PicoSure for tattoo removal is its ability to effectively treat a wide range of tattoo colors, including stubborn and resistant pigments. Whether your tattoo contains black, red, blue, green, or other colours, PicoSure can often achieve significant fading and clearance.

Preparing for Your Picosure Tattoo Treatment

Before your PicoSure treatment, it will help your treatment if you follow the specific guidelines we advocate at Derma Revive.

Avoid sun exposure and tanning beds for at least two weeks before and after your treatment to reduce the risk of complications.
Ensure the treatment area is clean and free from lotions, makeup, and sunscreen.
Stop using Accutane and any photosensitising medication at least six months prior to your session to reduce the potential risk of scarring.
Refrain from waxing or using chemical depilatories in the treatment area for two weeks before and after your session.

The PicoSure Process

During the treatment, you may feel a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against your skin. Most patients report this as mildly uncomfortable but not painful. The session duration varies depending on the size and complexity of the tattoo.

Aftercare: Getting The Best Results From The PicoSure Treatment

You will be given specific guidelines following your treatment, but some general advice is given below:

You may notice redness, swelling, and occasionally pinpoint bleeding. Applying a cool compress and taking over-the-counter painkillers can help manage discomfort.
Keep the treated area clean and moisturised.
Cover the area with a non-stick gauze pad until healed.
Avoid picking or scratching the treated area to prevent scarring.
Stay out of swimming pools and avoid strenuous exercise for the first seven days post-treatment.
Protect the area from sun exposure by applying a broad-spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen.

PicoSure VS Other Laser Methods


Traditional tattoo removal methods, such as Q-switch laser systems, rely on photothermal energy, primarily heat, to break down the pigment particles within tattoo ink. While effective, this approach often necessitates up to 20 sessions, each spaced at least six weeks apart, prolonging the entire process.

PicoSure Pro revolutionises tattoo removal with its picosecond technology. This advanced system delivers incredibly short and intense pulses directly to the tattoo pigment, shattering ink particles more efficiently and with minimal impact on the surrounding skin. The result? Your tattoo could be a thing of the past in just three to five sessions, significantly reducing both treatment time and recovery periods. This equates to a 60% decrease in the number of treatments required, offering substantial savings in time and expense.

How does the PicoSure Pro system work?

PicoSure Pro operates through laser energy delivered in picosecond pulses, each lasting only trillionths of a second. This rapid and potent energy transfer breaks down tattoo ink into smaller particles via a photo-thermal effect. Unlike traditional nanosecond lasers that use heat waves, PicoSure Pro utilizes pressure waves, minimising damage to adjacent tissues. This precision-focused approach not only accelerates the ink removal process but also ensures a quicker recovery, setting a new standard in tattoo removal technology.

Frequently Ask Questions

Is the PicoSure Laser Suitable for all skin types?

PicoSure Pro laser technology is optimally designed for Caucasian, Mediterranean, and Light Asian skin types, offering a safe and effective solution for removing tattoos. Its 755 nm wavelength is particularly adept at targeting and eliminating Black, Blue, and Green inks, achieving remarkable results.

What about colured inks?

The PicoSure Pro method excels in removing blue, green, and shaded inks. Experiences at DR Clinic have demonstrated that blue ink, in particular, can sometimes be completely removed in just a single session. This efficiency, coupled with a shorter wavelength, ensures minimal downtime for patients.

What Sets PicoSure Pro Apart from other lasers?

PicoSure Pro’s unique approach and picosecond pulse duration differentiate it from other laser treatments. By leveraging pressure waves over heat, it reduces damage to surrounding skin, speeds up the ink removal process, and shortens recovery time. This makes PicoSure Pro a safer and more efficient choice for tattoo removal compared to conventional nanosecond lasers.

How many PicoSure tattoo removal sessions are needed?

A good rule of thumb is 3-5 sessions but this does depend on factors relating to the tattoo and will vary from patient to patient.
