PicoSure™

The Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York offers New York’s first Picosecond laser for tattoo removal, pigmented lesion removal and acne scarring.

The FDA has cleared the PicoSure™ laser for tattoo and pigmented lesion removal. The approval is based on the clinical work performed at the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York under the direction of Dr. Roy G. Geronemus which has been published in the Archives of Dermatology.

We also harness our leading knowledge of the PicoSure™ laser having published the first article on using this device on patients with tattoos. This laser uses short bursts of energy to rapidly clear almost all tattoos, especially the blue and green colors which have been difficult to remove by other lasers.  The clinical work performed at our center led to the
PicoSure™ being approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). In our clinical study of 22 subjects with multi-colored and recalcitrant tattoos, the PicoSure™ laser achieved more than 80% overall tattoo clearance over a two week
period. On average, 94% clearance was achieved for blue and green ink. We continue to develop advances with picosecond laser technology as we are presently investigating two additional wavelengths for the device which we
anticipate will provide significant benefit to patients seeking tattoo removal.

 

PicoSure™ laser treatments are performed with local anesthesia and are only performed by board certified and fellowship trained dermatologists at our center.
