There’s been a lot of buzz lately about PicoSure laser. It’s known for successful tattoo removal, but did you know it is also effective for facial rejuvenation? Laser skin and facial rejuvenation is a non-invasive medaesthetic treatment designed to remove skin blemishes and stimulate increased production of collagen which works to improve overall appearance of the skin.
PicoSure laser can be effective for many different types of blemishes on any skin type. The PicoSure Focus uses the Focus Lens Array and Picosure technology to help you achieve clearer, brighter and younger looking skin.
How Does PicoSure Laser Work?
The PicoSure offers a gentler treatment. In the past, lasers have relied on intense heat energy to remove pigment from the skin, which could be painful and lead to significant skin redness and downtime. PicoSure is different.
The reason is because of its speed or should we say “pico-speed”? PicoSure laser facial rejuvenation is one million times faster than any of its predecessors. This is an important factor because it’s incredible speed allows PicoSure’s light energy to penetrate the skin’s deeper layers.
The light energy is delivered in short, fast bursts. With PicoSure laser, only the underlying problems are treated, leaving the skin’s surface intact. This type of facial rejuvenation not only results in a clearer, brighter complexion, but it does it with virtually no down time.
Patients may experience some minor irritation and redness for a few hours after treatment and are able to immediately return to their normal activities. Some patients have even gotten a PicoSure laser facial rejuvenation treatment on their lunch hour and then returned to work.
What Skin Issues Can PicoSure Laser Treat?
PicoSure can be used to treat many different skin issues on all skin types and in many age groups. Often we only think about facial rejuvenation as we age, but skin blemishes and imperfections can appear in younger patients as well.
This is a skin issue that can appear across almost all age groups. The scars and pock marks left behind by acne can be devastating. Younger patients may just be experiencing the after effects of acne while older patients have lived with them for years. They can be a great source of embarrassment and lower self esteem, especially in teenagers and young adults. PicoSure laser is particularly effective on this type of skin issue.
The PicoSure laser works in two ways to treat acne scars. First, the laser penetrates the skin to create local areas of thermal or heat damage. Second, the thermal damage combines with the laser’s “pico-speed” creating a “pressure wave” to break up the scar.
After a series of treatments, most patients see a significant reduction in the appearance of their scars, with improved skin texture and a clearer complexion.
These can appear around the corners of our eyes, around our lips and in various other places on our faces. When they first appear the may be almost unnoticeable, but as time goes on they become deeper and more obvious.
Facial rejuvenation with PicoSure laser can be extremely effective on these as well. It works on fine lines and tiny wrinkles similarly to how it works on acne scars.
Yes, PicoSure can work on age spots and even dark spots caused by the sun! PicoSure delivers laser energy to the skin and targets the pigment. As the energy is absorbed into the skin, its gentle vibration shatters the pigment, breaking it into micro-particles.
These particles are either eliminated naturally by the body, or the pigment will simply flake off. The result is a clearer, more even skin tone.
