The Picosure laser uses ultra-short picosecond photoacoustic energy for a non-ablative rejuvenating treatment that requires a series of 3-4 sessions, 2-4 weeks apart, for optimal results. The Picosure works by triggering the body’s own healing response and production of collagen and elastin, which are the building blocks for healthy, supple skin. By penetrating deep into the layers of the skin, the laser heat helps the skin to regenerate and renew itself, which leads to a fresher, more radiant appearance. This laser treats pigmented lesions, acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, stretch marks, and more. The treatment is safe for all skin types and can be performed on the face, neck, chest, legs, arms, and hands.
This 30 minute treatment does not require anesthetic and you will only have mild redness lasting an hour or so. After the procedure you will be able to apply makeup and return to work- it truly is a “lunchtime” rejuvenation treatment. Following the treatment your skin will have a “sandpaper”-like texture to it that you will feel but others won't be able to see. After a week or so you will notice your skin to be smooth, radiant, and younger looking.
