What is PicoSure?
The PicoSure laser system uses innovative picosecond technology to provide both cosmetic treatments to improve the skin’s appearance and tattoo removal of all ink colors. It is the first of a new generation of aesthetic lasers that do not rely solely on heat to melt away unwanted tattoo ink or melanin, the pigment that causes dark spots on the skin. Instead, pigment is shattered, without burning the surrounding tissue. Even more impressively, PicoSure’s technology is designed to harness the body’s natural healing processes to restore youthful skin in ways never before possible.
How can PicoSure Rejuvenate My Skin?
This rejuvenating treatment offers patients multiple skin-beautifying benefits, including a reduction in sun damage and pigmented areas as well as diminished lines, wrinkles and acne scars.
The skin resurfacing power of PicoSure offers patients similar results to ablative and non-ablative laser sessions; however, this treatment has a few advantages over the others. With PicoSure, patients do not need the same prep time nor downtime that is needed for ablative and non-ablative lasers. This makes it a great choice for patients seeking serious improvements in the look and feel of their skin.
Whether your concerns include fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, uneven tone or unwanted pigmentation, PicoSure offers the leading technology for laser skin rejuvenation. Additionally, this is one of the few lasers safe for all skin types, giving all patients a revitalized complexion without the risk that comes with other devices.
PicoSure Tattoo Removal
PicoSure laser tattoo removal system allows unwanted tattoos to fade away in six to eight treatments. The PicoSure laser delivers pulses of laser light so quickly that the tattoo pigment is shattered with an efficiency that’s 100s of times greater than ever before possible. No heat injury is caused to the skin at all.
PicoSure laser treatments are quick and convenient. Many patients compare the feeling to getting a tattoo. The number of treatments required varies and is dependent on ink type, size of tattoo, location on the body, lifestyle habits, the age of the tattoo, etc. Immediately after treatment you may see a slight whitening or “frosting” of the treated skin, which will subside after the treatment is complete. Other temporary effects may include mild swelling and redness.
