Korean aesthetic device company Wontech said today it won FDA 510(k) clearance for its Picocare picosecond laser device designed for tattoo removal.
The Picocare is a picosecond Nd:YAG based laser designed to remove tattoos in various colors, selectively removing pigment particles to minimize skin tissue damage.
“Picocare has received a lot of praise for successfully competing with the products of dominant global brands in the Korean market, which possesses strong interest and demand for lasers. Currently, it has emerged as one of the most popular kinds of picosecond laser equipment in Korea. As the performance and stability have already been verified through many procedures since its launch in Korea, we are looking forward to seeing rapid market penetration in the U.S. market as well,” CEO Reno Kim said in a press release.
