What Is PicoSure®?
PicoSure® is a revolutionary laser treatment used for skin rejuvenation. The treatment is cleared by the FDA for use in removing pigmented lesions, acne scars, and tattoos. The device pulses with ultra-short energy bursts to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin. These substances are created naturally to repair the skin, so this treatment encourages the body to do what it naturally does.
Patients generally do not feel much discomfort, as the energy pulses are only one trillionth of a second. The treatment is non-surgical, and patients have no set downtime after the treatment.
Who Makes a Good Candidate?
Those looking to reduce wrinkles stand to benefit from this treatment. The device can also address dark spots, hyperpigmentation, and acne scars. Treatment patients range in age, gender, and skin types. Unlike other lasers, this treatment works well for various skin types. Most pigmentation issues can be improved through a series of treatments. However, results vary from patient to patient based on a number of factors.
What Are the Treatment Benefits?
PicoSure® treatments are designed to be quick and easy. Most activities can be resumed immediately after the treatment. Some patients will experience improvement from their first session, but the best results typically require multiple sessions. Treatment results tend to be long-lasting, but it all depends on the unique case.
The following conditions can be treated with PicoSure® treatments:
- Uneven skin texture
- Acne scars
- Unwanted tattoos
Is It Safe?
PicoSure® is an FDA-cleared laser treatment developed by Cynosure, so you can be sure it is safe. The treatment includes no invasive surgery procedures. The ultra-short energy pulse is safer than many other cosmetic lasers. During the treatment, the skin is not burned or damaged. Makeup, creams, and moisturizers can be used immediately after the treatment. Many patients return to work or their other daily errands after leaving our office.
