Pico Laser versus Nano Laser

pico laser

Pico lasers and Nano lasers are two different types of laser that are used for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures.

Pico lasers, also known as picosecond lasers, use extremely short pulses of laser energy, typically in the picosecond (one trillionth of a second) range. These lasers emit energy in very short bursts, which allows for a higher level of precision and less heat-induced damage to surrounding tissue. Picosecond lasers have a high peak power and short pulse duration that result in minimal thermal damage to the surrounding tissue and less downtime. They can be used to treat a variety of skin conditions such as pigmented and vascular lesions, tattoos, and skin rejuvenation.

Nano lasers, on the other hand, use pulses of laser energy that are measured in nanoseconds (one billionth of a second). Nano lasers emit energy in longer bursts than pico lasers and can reach deeper layers of the skin. They are often used for hair removal and tattoo removal, as the longer pulse duration allows the laser energy to be absorbed more deeply into the skin and target the hair follicles or tattoo ink.

In summary, Pico lasers are more precise and cause less heat-induced damage to surrounding tissue, making them suitable for a wide range of skin conditions. While nano lasers are more suited for hair removal, tattoo removal, and other deeper skin conditions. However, It is important to consult with a qualified healthcare provider to determine the best treatment option for your individual needs.
