Pico Second Laser Procedure in Sugar Land, Katy and Houston, Texas
A picosecond aesthetic laser is the latest non-invasive technology used for eliminating acne scars, wrinkles, pigmented lesions, fine lines, and tattoos. The treatment is unique, as the laser delivers super-short bursts of energy, each in a trillionth of a second, so any unwanted pigment can be targeted without impacting the surrounding skin.

Therefore, if you want to look more youthful, the laser technology can give you the desired results without the traditional of other lasers. Basically, the picosecond laser fires laser beams in short bursts of a trillionth of a second (picosecond) each – faster than a nanosecond, or a billionth of a second used in older laser therapies. Our laser delivers energy in 450 picoseconds in an incredibly precise way.
Traditional methods of laser pigment removal can end in damage to the surrounding tissues. Plus, some of the older lasers do not have the capacity to shatter pigments in the bloodstream. That is why a picosecond laser is considered the ideal tool to use to permanently remove tattoos. As a result, pigment removal using picosecond lasers reduces of the risk of side effects, namely hyperpigmentation. When compared to nanosecond lasers, picosecond lasers convey higher energy laser pulses, so pigments shatter easily. This same technology using a fractional diffractive lens is used to stimulate collagen and elastin to smooth the skin of fine lines and wrinkles.
