The high peak power and short pulse duration delivers efficient destruction of the target chromospheres such as tattoo ink, pigment or collagen. The electro-optic Q-Switch, acting as a high-speed shutter, stores energy between pulses enabling the laser to produce peak power output of 200MW in 6ns pulse width. It forces energy at a high rate, the target chromospheres vibrate and shatter, without harming the surrounding skin on all skin.
Picosecond laser is being introduced as the first safe and effective aesthetic laser specifically designed to treat tattoos and pigmented lesions. The innovative laser delivers ultra short pulse bursts of energy to the skin in trillionths of a second. These pulse create a photomechanical effect, that target ink while avoiding unmarked tissue. The pulse shatters the ink into tiny, dust-like particles which are easily eliminated by the body.
