Exposure to the sun’s rays is responsible for 90% of damage to our skin. The effects of aging and acne scars can also deteriorate the condition of your skin over time. Fortunately, PicoSure laser skin resurfacing can improve skin disorders and imperfections, remove tattoos, and promote skin revitalization.
Unlike most other picosecond devices, PicoSure utilizes a specialized wavelength that targets melanin over hemoglobin making it ideal for treating pigmentary conditions.
In trillionths of a second, the PicoSure laser creates intense photomechanical impacts sparing the skin of high thermal damage and resulting in enhanced clearance with fewer treatments.
The PicoSure wavelengths can also effectively treat all tattoo colors. The picosecond pulse width breaks up ink particles with targeted photomechanical pressure enabling a smooth integration process for the body. Boost™ Adjustable Pressure shortens the pulse width even more to treat stubborn or resistant ink.
We start by applying numbing cream to the area being treated, whether for tattoo removal or facial revitalization. We leave the numbing cream on for about thirty to forty-five minutes before removing it and proceeding with the laser process.
Tattoos in a small area can take about twenty to thirty seconds to complete. However, if tattoos cover a larger area, the treatment could take up to twenty minutes. For facial revitalization, the complete treatment process takes about thirty minutes.
Using the PicoSure technology, there is less risk for side effects from energy passing through the cells of the skin leading to increased collagen and elastin production for a unique rejuvenation effect that no other laser can platform.
The PicoSure laser can improve an array of skin conditions and phase out harm to your skin caused by sun damage or age including:
- Acne scars
- Brown spots
- Pigmented lesions
- Stretch marks
- Fine lines and wrinkles
By removing the damaged outer layers of your skin and stimulating the production of collagen and new skin cells in the underlying layers, PicoSure technology leaves you looking great, feeling your best, and oozing with confidence.
