Picosecond lasers use pulse duration of less than 1 nanosecond, which causes predominantly photo acoustic damage rather than photo thermal destruction of pigment or ink particles (measured by production of heat). This results in effective clearance of abnormal pigment, while minimising photo thermal damage to the surrounding tissue. The main indication for the use of a picosecond laser is tattoo removal. Depending on their wavelength, picosecond lasers are particularly useful for clearing blue and green pigments, which are difficult to eliminate using other lasers, and tattoos that are refractory to treatment with the traditional Q-switched lasers. The use of picosecond lasers has also been reported for treatment of melasma, naevus of Ota, naevus of Ito, minocycline-induced pigmentation, and solar lentigines.
Why choose a picosecond laser?
A picosecond laser selectively destroys the target pigment without damaging healthy, normal tissue. This allows rapid clearing of the abnormal pigmentation with minimal collateral damage to surrounding tissue. Picosecond lasers used for tattoo removal require fewer treatments, cause fewer side effects, and result in reduced post-procedural downtime compared to nanosecond Q-switched lasers. They can clear some tattoos that are refractory to other forms of laser therapy, and there is a reduced risk of causing scarring and hypopigmentation. The additional cost and reduced availability of picosecond lasers compared to Q-switched lasers currently restricts their widespread use.
