Success! Today I was the first nurse in the entire Southwest to use the new PicoSure 532nm handpiece for red, yellow & orange tattoo inks! I was very impressed with the reaction created by the treatment. Both yellow and red ink “frosted” in response to the 532nm green laser beam. You will recall that red (and its variants) appear red because they absorb green light and reflect red light. The appearance of the 4 red & yellow tattoos I treated today indicated that the ink was sufficiently destroyed by the laser energy and resultant PressureWave. I fully expect a great deal of ink clearance over the next 6-8 weeks. What makes this 532nm handpiece unique is that it too pulses in the picosecond range. Picosecond pulse widths ensure maximum clearance and minimal or none unwanted side effects.
Due to the popularity of red, yellow, orange & pink inks in modern tattoos, I have a number of patients who were waiting specifically for this new handpiece. I worked closely with CynoSure, the manufacturer of the PicoSure laser, to ensure I would be the first in Texas to get it. Turns out, I’m one of the 1st in the entire world! When you combine this fact with the fact that I received one of the initial PicoSure units ever produced (April 2013), it means that I have a great deal of experience and have worked tirelessly to bring my patients the finest tattoo removal treatment available.
