It is quite difficult to find independent articles on the Picoseond laser technology. Here is one article, published in the (too) serious magazine “Journal of the Laser and Health Academy”, Volume 2013 Issue Number 0ne, page S09-S10.

Here is the conclusion:

“In conclusion, the published literature and our preliminary results seem to indicate that current “picosecond” lasers are not expected to have a significantly better tattoo clearance effect in comparison with the “gold standard” Q-switched nanosecond tattoo lasers. Taking into account also the current technology limitations of picosecond lasers, it is our opinion that top-of-the-line Q-switched nanosecond lasers will remain the devices of choice for tattoo removal.”
