Discovery Pico VarioPulse Technology Series Overview

The DISCOVERY PICO Series is the Gold Standard Picosecond laser, especially thanks to its three true laser wavelengths Nd:YAG 1064nm, Nd:YAG 532nm and Ruby 694nm, leading peak power, four pulse emission modes and its unique fractional handpiece for multi-level scar treatments. Quanta System has developed the Discovery Pico Series based on extremely innovative Italian Engineered technology for both excellent clinical results and unparalleled patient’s safety

Discovery Pico Series Advantages

  • HIGH Peak power (up to 1.8 GW)
  • MULTIPLE Wavelengths with FASTEST Ruby Laser at 3Hz
  • No Dye Handpiece Consumables for Excellent ROI
  • FOUR emission modes for maximum versatility
  • Optibeam II handpiece with Flat top Square, Round and Fractional Spots
  • Ultimate SAFETY and minimal down-time
  • FRACTIONAL Handpiece for multi-level scar treatments
Discovery Pico Plus - Wavelengths and Emission modes

Picosecond Multi Platform Laser

Four separate emission modes for significantly greater versatility in applications, efficacy and flexibility

Unlike several other Picosecond Lasers that can only generate picosecond Pulses, the Quanta Discovery Pico Plus is able to produce four emission modes with adjustable Pulse durations. Physicians can customise the desired effect of the laser from ultrashort pulses for breaking up pigment and scar treatment through to longer pulses for active acne and neocollogenesis.

Discovery Pico OPTIBEAM II Fractional Handpiece

Enhance both skin resurfacing and scar revision with minimal downtime thanks to the cutting-edge fractional handpiece technology

Utilising a fractional handpiece with a high-powered picosecond laser, create zones of laser-induced optical breakdown (LIOB) at Multi-skin level stimulation unlike other lasers on the market which only focus on superficial layers. The surrounding tissue has limited collateral damage in the picosecond domain to ensure firstly a rapid healing, secondly a minimum side effect and thirdly a low incidence of Post Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH). This both effectively breaks down scar tissue and improves collagen remodelling.

The Discovery Pico fractional handpiece has been clinically proven to significantly improve acne scars with low risk of PIH, suggesting the potential advantages of using the Discovery Pico for treating patients who are usually at risk of PIH with more traditional ablative laser technology.

The most amazing thing about the Discovery Pico is that it does not cause any post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) when I use the fractional handpiece to treat acne scars,”
Dr. Chuang

The Micro-lens array Technology

“The micro-lens array technology within the fractionated handpiece provides 90% energy transfer and the longest beam profile, extending 2 mm beneath the epidermis,”
Dr. Chuang


  • Focused high-precision microbeams – creating both plasma effect on the epidermis and LIOB’s in the dermis
  • Neocollogenesis
  • Cleaner ablative columns for especially faster healing
  • Reduced risk of complications
  • Optimising Tattoo removal
  • Lightweight ergonomic design
  • Fractional Multi-Level Skin Stimulation

The Discovery PICO fractional beam profile can perform double skin stimulation allowing both the creation of LIOBs in upper dermis for collagen remodelling and gentle “cold” ablation of damaged skin.

Why Picosecond and Nanosecond pulse ranges?

  • The use of picosecond pulses basically permits to direct the same amount of energy of a nanosecond pulse, in shorter times for the maximum photo-acoustic effect
  • Picosecond pulses are especially ideal for fragmentation of very small tattoo ink and pigmentation particles
  • Nanosecond pulses instead are ideal for the treatment of clusters of tattoo ink
  • Photo-acoustic treatment range certainly leaves the surrounding tissues unharmed for the best confinement of the thermal effect within the target particles

Why do you need GW range of Power?


  • To maintain the same fluence range with the largest spot sizes, then high values of laser energy is required. This is indeed guaranteed by the highest peak power on the market.
  • In particular, higher power means physicians can deliver a range of fluence levels with greater variety of handpiece spot sizes


  • The bigger the spot size the deeper the laser penetration. That is to say that to allow deeper laser penetration into the skin, Large spot sizes are required. Consequently to Maximise Fluence in a larger spot size, high power is required.

More Fragmentation Power

  • The combination of picosecond or nanosecond pulses with both high energy and big spot sizes permits greater performances to pulverise even the smallest and deepest target particles
  • The combination of both picosecond and nanosecond technologies yields the best results
Discovery Pico vs Q-Switched Effect
Photo-Acoustic Effect
Discovery Pico includes both Picosecond and nanosecond pulses, for better treatment flexibility.

The Discovery Pico series generates a pure photoacoustic effect to shatter both inks and pigmentation leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. Thanks to its shorter pulse duration, high peak power and large spot size hand-pieces the Discovery Pico effectively and undoubtedly pulverizes even the deepest skin pigments.

Maximum laser efficacy and Patient Safety

Significantly Safer Treatments on All Skin Types with the Optibeam II Technology

The innovative smooth OPTIBEAM II handpiece is specifically designed to have a perfect FLAT TOP beam profile and it comes in different flat-top spot shapes at various sizes. Thanks to its advanced optical technology the OPTIBEAM II handpiece not only maintains uniform fluence but also distributes the laser power homogenously across the different spot sizes, ensuring complete safety, comfort and reduced downtime.

Benefits of the OPTIBEAM II homogenous Flat Top Beam Profile:

  • Faster Healing time
  • Safer treatment without any “hot points”
  • Significantly reduced risk of complications
  • Particularly comfortable sessions
  • Available in squared, rounded and fractionated beam profiles.

NaturaPeel Handpiece

Chrome NaturaPeel Handpiece

Fixed Handpiece for cream assisted laser peeling

NaturaPeel is a 6mm Round Spot Flat Top Beam Handpiece based on proprietary OptiBeam II Technology specifically designed for carbon-peel treatments.

The Handpiece is equipped with a protective window and a longer tip in order to protect the internal lens from dust particles produced by the carbon-peel treatment.

Unlike traditional carbon-peel treatments NaturaPeel uses an eco-friendly bamboo wood based cream with cosmetic active ingredients for a natural WOW effect.

NaturaPeel Handpiece and Cream can be used Discovery Pico Q-Switched Mode and Pico Mode.

Further Expanding its versatility and Profitably the Discovery Pico can be upgraded with Twain Accessories :

Discovery Pico in particular offers two Twain options; IPL or 2940nm Er:YAG handpiece that can obviously be attached to the front twain connector of the DISCOVERY PICO Series (Not Available with the Discovery Pico Start)*.


The DISCOVERY PICO series can be equipped with both Twain 2940 and Twain IPL Handpieces through a special Twain Universal Connector* present at the front of the machine.

TWAIN 2940

Twain 2940 is a laser handpiece that fits to the Twain universal connector present on the DISCOVERY PICO platforms*. It has been designed to perform ablation procedures, both fractional and full spot. The Er:YAG laser Twain 2940 nm is able, through the variation of pulse parameters, to remove the layers of skin with minimal thermal damage or produce a higher coagulation suitable for the stimulation of collagen production.

Indications for Twain fractional 2940nm:

  • Skin Resurfacing
  • Traumatic and acne scars
  • Epidermal dyschromia
  • Sun and age spots
  • Wrinkles and fine les.
  • Full Spot Skin ablation
