We all have things in our past that we’d like to erase. For many of us, this includes one tattoo – or many. Luckily, laser technology makes it possible to remove body ink faster and more effectively than ever before.
The Discovery Pico laser goes beyond conventional picosecond lasers by combining the highest power possible with more wavelengths and treatment modes. The laser can effectively treat all tattoo colors precisely and evenly, reducing the discomfort and recovery time often associated with laser tattoo removal. Of course, the number of treatments required will depend on each individual’s case, but Discovery Pico makes it possible to achieve optimum outcomes in fewer sessions.
Providing optimal tattoo removal treatments, the Discovery Pico generates a pure photo-acoustic effect to shatter inks and pigmentations while leaving the surrounding tissues unharmed. This picosecond laser, thanks to its shorter pulse durations and high peak power, will effectively pulverize even the deepest skin pigment.
If you think of a tattoo like a boulder, the Discovery uses one emission mode to initially break down the boulder into large pebbles, and then a picosecond mode breaks those particles into even finer particles until the entire boulder is nothing but dust. The Discovery is unique because it’s the only picosecond laser with three true laser wavelengths, which eliminates the full spectrum of tattoo colors – including notoriously difficult to remove light blue and green pigments.
The number of treatments depends on each patient’s need, but this type of laser ultimately reduces the number of sessions required to achieve the desired outcome.
The laser is safe for all skin types. The larger spot sizes and ability to break down all pigment types make it effective for tattoos, in addition to birthmarks and skin discoloration.
The Discovery power settings and handpiece were designed to maximize comfort and reduce side effects and healing time. The laser treats the skin across any pigment or tattoo shape so the skin can heal naturally and effectively.
