PicoSure’s unique energy delivery is a breakthrough for patients’ seeking a way to improve their skin and reduce signs of aging but who don’t want to deal with the risks, pain and downtime of traditional laser treatments. Using highly targeted energy, PicoSure gently disrupts the particles responsible for a range of pigment conditions like freckles, sunspots and other discoloration.
Picosure’s technology uses a unique wavelength of light and a specialized lens to convert laser energy into gentle pressure. This pressure squeezes cells, activating the natural cell signaling processes that creates new collagen and elastin without burning or damaging the skin. This process helps to improve wrinkles, fine lines, acne scarring, as well as the overall texture of your skin. Most patients experience a rubber band snapping sensation during treatment, and afterwards may feel as though they have a mild sunburn. Your skin may appear pink afterwards, however it usually subsides within 24-48 hours, depending on how sensitive your skin is.
