Is picosure a q-switched laser?

PicoSure Is Not a Q-Switch Laser
I think you misunderstood your doctor. PicoSure is a pico-second (trilionth) laser that can fire at 755, 532 and now 1064 nm. All Q-Switch lasers pulses are measured in nano-seconds (billionth).

Yes, it is a form of QUALITY switching or Q switching, however the pulse width is a trillionth of a second. You are in good hands as the 755 is ideal for green tattoos. Dr Davin S. Lim
