Why a Picosecond Laser?

Picoplus is used for solving Melasma which is often associated with pregnancy, hormone therapy and excessive UV exposure.

Both the Nano- and Picosecond lasers are Q-switched lasers developed initially for the management of pigmentary disorders. Nano-second lasers fire at nanosecond pulses, the quickest of all lasers before the new picosecond lasers. The Picosecond Laser, as its name suggests, fires pulses at a fraction of the Nano-second lasers - 450 picoseconds.

What this implies is a greater amount of energy can be delivered in a shorter period of time, allowing:

  1. A greater Photoacoustic (mechanical) effect on pigments, shattering them more effectively

  2. A smaller Photothermal (heating) effect, reducing side effects of the laser

  3. Smaller energies to be used for the same efficacy, increasing the safety profile of the laser

Resurfacing capability

In fact, the laser produces such a significant photoacoustic effect that when the beams are focused with a special lens - the Dual Focused Dot lens - the laser creates tiny explosions just beneath the skin, known as Laser-induced Optical Breakdown bodies (LIOB).

These LIOBs effectively force dermal remodeling and resurfaces scars without any peeling or prolonged downtime or discomfort - a form of treatment known as Cold Rejuvenation.

Unlike other Picosecond lasers, the Picoplus offers an unrivalled versatility and reliability:

  1. FOUR Wavelengths of light and THREE depths of resurfacing:
    • Allows flexibility in pigment and tattoo removal
    • Allows more thorough treatment of scars and rejuvenation
  2. Gold Standard Ultra-short Pulse Duration and Highest Peak Power
    • Pulse duration of 450 picoseconds
    • Peak Power of 1.8 GW
  3. Legacy of Excellence and Reliability
    • Stable laser beam profile since the days of the Spectra lasers
