With the rapid increase in tattooing, there has also been a rapid increase in the demand for tattoo removal. Choosing where to go and deciphering all the marketing, including Pico v’s Nano technology, is not only really confusing but also time consuming.
The only real difference between picosecond and nanosecond lasers for tattoo removal is the pulse speed, pure and simple. Both are extraordinarily fast and both shatter the ink and shatter it well. The confusion for people seems to lie in the marketing campaigns by Pico companies. Marketing is a very powerful tool and if we want to speak recently, is very capable of spreading “fake news”. New research from MIT has found that fake news travels far faster and is much more likely to be retweeted. Elections can be won and lost by it. Wrong decisions can be made due to it.
