Picosecond Laser Shows Promise for New Era in Tattoo Removal
Sep. 03, 2012
A recent study out of our center and presented by Dr. Roy G. Geronemus at the 2012  meeting of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery in Kissimmee, Florida found that Cynosure's PicoSure laser cleared more than two-thirds of green and/or blue tattoos within one or two treatments.

"'Blue and green tattoos have been very resistant to treatment with nanosecond-pulse lasers. The average tattoo needs six to 10 treatments to achieve acceptable results, but up to 20 sessions are sometimes needed,' Dr. Geronemus says. 'The dramatic clearing of blue and green tattoos in just one or two sessions using the picosecond alexandrite laser is really remarkable.'"
