PicoSure Focus Skin Revitalization
What It Is
The PicoSure laser with the focus lens array represents the state of the art in skin rejuvenation without downtime. It is a new and innovative method for treating the skin of the face, neck, chest, and hands. The treatment is FDA approved and is particularly effective at improving sun spots, excessive skin pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and acne scars.
How it Works
The PicoSure laser uses ultra short bursts of laser energy. These ultra short energy bursts elicit a tissue reaction in the skin that leads to a reduction in pigmented skin lesions, smoothing of wrinkles, improved acne and other scars, and an increase in collagen and elastin. This results in brighter, smoother, and younger looking skin.
Depending on what is being treated and the patient’s skin type, most patients will require between two and five PicoSure treatments spaced at 4-6 week intervals. Every patient that might benefit from skin rejuvenation has a unique set of needs. However, with the PicoSure, nearly every skin rejuvenation patient can be improved. PicoSure will improve the sun spots and abnormal brown pigment that result from Melasma and excessive sun exposure, improve fine lines and wrinkles, and treat acne and other types of scars. And unique to the PicoSure, these results are achieved without redness, downtime, or pain.
