Kenneth A. Arndt and Jeffrey S. Dover are two authors promoting the use of a Picosecond Alexandrite Laser to remove tattoos. On a podcast at the Archives of Dermatology they describe the Alexandrite Laser’s effectiveness…
During a study last summer, people with black, blue or green ink were cleared after only two treatments…much faster than other laser tattoo removal treatments.
And what does the Picosecond Alexandrite Laser have in store for you? Well, a shorter pulse duration to break up tattoo particles. “We found that this new picosecond laser appears to clear tattoos perhaps twice as fast as the previous q-switched lasers,” one of the authors states. There’s also a faster turnaround, healing time.
Patients and physicians can’t stop raving the Picosecond Alexandrite technology. Interesting fact, though, is that it’s been around for years but physicians weren’t able to utilize it. Only recently companies were able to able to package the technology.
