picosecond lasrs

The gold standard for laser tattoo removal is the Q-Switched laser.
This type of laser emits the beam in nanoseconds rather than miliseconds as utilized by most other laser systems.
The rapid release of the laser output means less heat is delivered to the target and more energy. The rapid frequent delivery vibrates the
target cell or ink  shattering it into small particles.
That is the basis for laser tattoo removal,  rendering the ink into tiny specs that can be taken away by the cells of your immune system.
Theory has it that lasers firing in picoseconds will render these particles into even smaller particles thus making laser tattoo removal faster and better.
The results are pending but if this proves to be true we can see new lasers for lattoo removal on the market in the next few years.
