Did YOU know? The PicoSure laser for tattoo removal & skin rejuvenation has a “rep rate” or repeat rate that ranges from 1-10 pulses per second depending upon the area being treated? The rate is measured in Hertz. Treating a large back piece tattoo would require 10 Hertz but a traumatic tattoo near the eye might necessitate a rate of only 1 Hertz. Unfortunately, many laser “technicians” do not understand the pulse count as it pertains to effective treatments.
A skilled operator recognizes the need for laser adjustments based upon a large array of medical variables. At the end of a procedure, the PicoSure laser will report how many times it pulsed and this number becomes part of the patient’s medical record which can be evaluated later if adjustments are required.
