Is picosure a q-switched laser?
28 days ago
I hope this isn't confusing but at my consultation this week I was telling my Dr I want to go with picosure and not a q switched laser (I have a bright green tattoo) after seeing all the reviews on here. She told me picosure IS a qswitched laser. She would use the 755 wavelength. Is that right? I want to make sure I'm paying for the right laser. I saw the machine and it says picosure but I was under the impression pico was NOT 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).
