Evolution of Lasers: Picosecond vs Nanosecond Lasers

Before the existence of picosecond lasers, the nanosecond laser was used to treat skin conditions such as sun-induced pigmentation melasma, liver spots, freckles, solar lentigo, ephelides and café au lait spots. Picosecond lasers are able to emit lightning fast energy pulses in the picosecond range, at a speed of 1 trillionth of a second.
