"The integration of the 532 nm wavelength into the PicoSure platform allows for more effective removal of red, orange, and yellow tattoo ink, which can now be cleared in fewer treatments," says Roy G. Geronemus, MD, director of the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York.
Cynosure expects to introduce the 532 nm laser delivery system for PicoSure at the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD)'s 2015 Annual Meeting, to take place March 20-24, 2015, in San Francisco, CA. Initial shipments are expected to begin by the end of the second quarter of 2015.
