The highly respected dermatologists of Goldman, Butterwick, Fitzpatrick, Groff & Fabi Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego are pleased to announce the arrival of the newest and most advanced treatment for tattoo removal, the PicoSure laser. According to Dr. William Groff, laser expert at GBFG&F, the new PicoSure laser system is able to bring patients better outcomes in fewer treatments.

“Because the PicoSure Laser system is able to target such specific areas in the skin to create a photomechanical impact, tattoos are disrupted in a much greater clearance than with any other treatment,” said Dr. Groff. “This is truly the best treatment for tattoo removal available.”

The new PicoSure laser system is the first in the world to rely on picosecond technology. Unlike other tattoo removal lasers, the PicoSure system delivers quick pulses of energy to targeted areas of the skin at an astounding width nearly 100 times shorter than nanosecond technology. As Dr. Sabrina Fabi describes, dermatologists are now able to treat difficult, darker tattoos that may have left unwanted residue behind.

“Tattoos with blue and green ink have historically been the toughest to fully remove. Now, with the PicoSure laser in San Diego, we’re able to break the tattoo into microscopic particles that the body can easily dispel, in half as many treatments as traditional Q-switched lasers” said board certified dermatologist Sabrina Fabi, MD.

At GBFG&F in San Diego, the PicoSure laser can also be used to treat benign pigmented lesions, including hyperpigmentation, melasma, and unwanted discolored sunspots. Though each patient is unique, the number of treatments required for optimal results is greatly lowered with the advanced technology of the PicoSure laser.

“Before the PicoSure laser, a patient may need 4-6 treatments to see the best results for the diminishment of tattoos or other pigment problems. Today, our patients see excellent results in as little as 2 treatments,” said Dr. Groff.
