As the first PicoSure laser in the entire Southwestern U.S. to have the 532nm optional upgrade handpiece for red, yellow, pink and orange inks, I would like to give my impression as to its performance. Originally, these light colors on the front end of the ROY G BIV rainbow spectrum, were tough to remove due to their low photosensitivity. The PicoSure team compensated for this by releasing an optional handpiece that emits a 532nm green wavelength laser beam. Red inks appear red because they absorb green and reflect red. By absorbing this 532nm green light, the ink’s weakness is exploited and they fracture into the tiniest of particles which can easily be removed by the body via the lymph system and its circulating lymphocytes.
In the photos below we can see the frosting reaction when the new 532nm handpiece is used on a light red and deep yellow ink. This phenomenon is virtually impossible with a standard PicoSure laser which is why I went through the time, expense and training to receive one of the first four 532nm handpieces ever built. If you have a tattoo that includes red, yellow, pink or orange that you would like completely and efficiently removed with the PicoSure laser tattoo removal system, I can be reached by phone @ 512-479-9997 or just stop by my NEW location in Austin, TX: Austin Medspa on W. 6th St.
