Tattoo Removal – Will Picosecond Lasers Replace Nanosecond Lasers?


The SIM from macro to mini to Nano size has happened, and would it be Pico soon? But LASER technology has already gone from Nano to Pico! That's how we target those tough pigment and those deep tattoos, and that gives faster, better and safer results. – PowerPoint PPT presentation

Title: Tattoo Removal – Will Picosecond Lasers Replace Nanosecond Lasers?

Tattoos have become an obsession for many,
especially those who belong to the music and
arts field, or those who are obsessed with
fitness and training. They want to show off their
best assets by having a tattoo engraved, so that
they can grab eyeballs. However, there could be
certain reasons why one would want to get rid of
their tattoo in the future. If you are also
looking to have your tattoo removed in a way that
there are no signs of tattoo shown, while also
keeping your skin protected against scars and
rashes, you would want to look for the best skin
laser specialist in Mumbai, who can help remove
your tattoo with the help of the most advanced
lasers that have improved performance and almost
zero side-effects on the skin.
How Do Lasers Work Their Magic? When lasers are
applied on the area where the tattoo is present,
the rays break up the ink into particles that
get flown with the blood, which slowly and
gradually are excreted through the body within a
few days. For many years, nanosecond lasers were
used for this procedure that applied nanosecond
pulse durations at high light intensities to the
skin, which rapidly heated up the skin to break
up the ink particles. Later, other advancements
brought about another laser procedure that used
even shorter pulse durations in the sub-
nanosecond range. These sub-nanosecond pulses
allowed even more effective fragmentation of the
tattoo particles. Today, an even shorter pulse
rate is used to most effectively eliminate
tattoos, especially black and other darker tones.
These lasers use picoseconds pulse durations,
which are not only most effective, but are also
least painful. Picosecond Lasers Vs. Nanosecond
Lasers Study A study was carried out to test
the efficacy of picoseconds lasers versus
nanosecond lasers in the case of tattoo removal.
16 patients with black tattoos were enrolled for
the test. They were treated with 35 picosecond
and 10 nanosecond pulses from two lasers. They
received a total of 4 treatments at 4-week
intervals. Routine microscopic and electron
microscopic analysis was done at the initial
treatment sessions as well as after the final
treatment. Observation Dermatologists were
called to evaluate photographs and assess tattoo
lightening. Also, epidermal and dermal changes,
and the depth of pigment alteration were
examined. Furthermore, electron micrographs were
examined for particle electron density and size
changes. In 12 out of 16 tattoos, there was
significant lightening in the picosecond treated
areas, as compared to those treated with
nanosecond pulses. Also, the depth of pigment
alteration was greater for picosecond pulses.
However, the particle size was increased and
electron density was decreased in both pulse
durations. Conclusion In conclusion, it was
determined that picoseconds pulses are more
efficient than nanosecond pulses in clearing
tattoos. By holding other laser parameters
constant, pulse duration has proven to be a
significant element in tattoo removal. Dr.
