Drs Kenneth Arndt and Jeffrey Dover’s research with picosecond (trillionth of a second!) laser devices for tattoo removal was highlighted in the recent Aesthetic Guide.
"Tattoo removal has graduated from the days of non-selective ablation using carbon dioxide and continuous wave lasers to selective photothermolysis using Q-switched lasers. The first breakthrough in tattoo treatments came 20 years ago, with the development of these Q-switched nanosecond lasers,” explained Jeffrey Dover who also conducted one of the clinical studies used in the PicoSure™ laser’s FDA approval process. “These billionth of a second pulse duration devices achieved scarless tattoo removal for the very first time.”
