The disposable tips that attach to the Picasso Plus Multi-Tip Handpiece enhance the ease of use and set-up. Most consultants had one or two favorite tips but appreciated the variety from which to choose. The wireless foot pedal adds to the convenience in the operatory. Consultants found they could perform all desired soft tissue procedures with either the Picasso Plus or Picasso Lite Plus ; the whitening function of the Picasso Plus was not evaluated. The simplicity of Picasso Lite Plus appealed to new laser users and those who only use one occasionally. The additional settings and higher power of Picasso Plus allows the advanced user more versatility. The optical fiber (between the countertop unit and the handpiece) has plenty of length and requires manual winding onto the spool for storage.
