New PICO SERIES™ Laser with Ruby 694nm Hits UK Market
Next Generation Picosecond Laser Platforms with Optional Ruby Laser
Laser manufacturer Lynton have launched their ‘next generation’ picosecond platform for removal of ALL treatable tattoo colours. With the new addition of a Ruby 694nm laser wavelength, Lynton claim The PICO SERIES™ “transcends all other picosecond devices” through its unique ability to combine the efficacy and speed of picosecond pulses with the proven safety profile of nanosecond Q-switched pulses at 1064nm, 532nm and 694nm.
The PICO SERIES™ is the world’s first picosecond platform with a 694nm (Ruby) laser, enabling clearance of ALL treatable tattoo colours: including notoriously hard to treat, green and blue pigments.
Dr Jonathon Exley, Managing Director at Lynton: “A number of our Laser Physicists have worked for many years with picosecond lasers both at Lynton and at the University of Manchester. While we believe them to be highly effective, picosecond lasers currently lack the well-evidenced safety profile of traditional gold-standard nanosecond lasers. However, next generation picosecond lasers, such as our new PICO SERIES™, overcome these challenges by combining both picosecond and nanosecond technology across three wavelengths, allowing the effective and safe removal of all treatable tattoo colours on all skin types”.
The new PICO SERIES™ platforms also provides the industry’s highest peak power at 1.8GW along with the shortest pulse duration available across all picosecond platforms (375ps). This ultra-high specification is needed to achieve the optimum photomechanical effect - a requirement to increase the speed at which the laser shatters tattoo pigments particles and therefore reducing the number of treatments needed for tattoo clearance.
The PICO SERIES™ also comes with the new FraxTip™ lens attachment for skin rejuvenation, with results comparable to those usually only achieved with more ablative technologies. FraxTip™ lens highly concentrates energy generated by the laser leading to a photomechanical induced trauma on the epidermis, resulting in increased collagen and elastin production while preventing any significant thermal damage to surrounding tissue.
