All You Need To Know About Picosecond Or Pico Laser

Laser technology has progressed to the point that laser pulsation at a frequency of one pulse every trillionth of a second is now possible. This pico second frequency from which the name is derived represents the forefront of laser technology. These pulsations are so fast that they create energy in the form of sound rather than heat. This has implications for dermatology and the removal of melasma lesions: the absence of heat bypasses the issue of thermal damage, a side effect of more traditional Q-switched laser treatment. 

Procedures done with the use of Pico laser have fast become one of the most sought after aesthetic treatments. Patients who have issues with skin pigmentation for different skin types, often ask for the fastest and most effective treatments to help get rid of unwanted dark spots and pigments on their face that make their skin look uneven. In this in-depth article, we will share with you all you need to know about the Picosecond or Pico laser, as its more commonly called. 

What is a Picosecond laser?

Laser technology has progressed to the point that laser pulsation at a frequency of one pulse every trillionth of a second is now actually possible. This picosecond frequency from which the name is derived represents the forefront of laser technology. These pulsations are so rapid that they create energy in the form of sound (yes sound!) rather than heat. This has implications for dermatology and the removal of melasma lesions: the absence of heat bypasses the issue of thermal damage, a side effect of more traditional Q-switched laser treatment.  

The development and improvement of Picosecond lasers still continue through the years following the advancements in aesthetic research. In reality, each pico laser (on its own) may be credited to different technologies. This is due to the fact that the manufacturing of such lasers do not only come from one location.
