Picasso Lite is designed for the first-time laser dentist and hygienist. Its affordable price point, ease of use, and sleek design make it the perfect replacement for a scalpel and electro-surge for the use of treating soft-tissue. Picasso Lite cuts and coagulates tissue with reduced trauma, bleeding, and necrosis of tissue and is used for soft-tissue surgical procedures. Picasso Lite offers 2.5 watts of power and three customizable presets. Picasso Lite comes complete with laser certification options, multiple accessories, world power adapter, wireless foot control, option of disposable tip system or strippable fiber, and a two-year warranty.

The Picasso’s innovative design, 7 watts of power, 8 programmable presets, color touch screen, multi-lingual menu, option of disposable tip system or strippable fiber, wireless foot control, standard two-year warranty, and low annual operating cost makes Picasso the complete laser solution for dentists who want the flexibility to integrate laser technology throughout their practice.

The disposable tips that attach to the Picasso 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 or Picasso Lite; the whitening function of the Picasso was not evaluated. The simplicity of Picasso Lite appealed to new laser users and those who only use one occasionally. The additional settings and higher power of Picasso 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.
