What is Picosure?
Groundbreaking innovative technology which performs non-surgical and non-invasive laser skin treatment to focus on specific problem areas on multiple areas on the body and not just the face.
How does Picosure work?
Innovative PicoSure technology gently delivers short bursts of energy and not heat to target problem areas to achieve a more youthful appearance. This unparalleled breakthrough in laser technology delivers ultra-short pulse bursts of energy to the skin in trillionths of a second to gently target and eliminate pigment without harming the surrounding skin. Improve the look of your skin and achieve a more youthful appearance by removing pigment or treating wrinkles and acne scars faster than ever before.
Which concerns can Picosure treat?
• Brown spots
• Sun damage
• Wrinkles and fine lines
• Acne scars
1What makes PicoSure® treatment so unique?
It uses high energy instead of heat to selectively destroy under skin discolorations and promotes elastin production, which results in skin firmness and reduction in appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Selective targeting of problem areas with high energy instead of heat, which all other lasers use, leads to preservation of healthy skin and virtually no downtime after the treatment.
2Can I get PicoSure treatment in the summer?
Absolutely yes, because it uses high energy as opposed to high heat, it significantly decreases skin damage and makes it a very safe treatment during summer, while all other lasers, including IPL, should be avoided due to increased risk for sunburn and skin irritation.
3What skin types and colors does PicoSure treat?
It is FDA cleared and safe to be used on ALL skin types (Fitzpatrick I-VI). This is a phenomenal technology which will help all women, particularly of Asian and African descent to safely and effectively remove unwanted spots on their face or body.
4How long do I have to wait between my PicoSure treatments?
Treatment intervals are 2-4 weeks but can be up to 8 weeks for darker skin types.
5How long does PicoSure treatment take?
Due to its pico technology, the energy burst is 1000 times more powerful and superfast, allowing for a very comfortable and easy treatment. It takes anywhere between 15-30 minutes depending on the area to be treated.
6Does PicoSure treatment hurt?
It is a very comfortable lunch time procedure. The average discomfort level reported by clients receiving treatment was 2 out of 10. It’s even less than getting Botox injections PicoSure delivers energy in ultra-short bursts, and patients often compare the laser pulse to a snap of a thin rubber band.
7Is there downtime after PicoSure treatment?
There is absolutely no downtime. This treatment may give you a slightly flushed appearance which will last for about 30 minutes but can easily be covered up with makeup or tinted moisturizer.
8Can I apply makeup after my PicoSure treatment?
9Can I go under sun after my PicoSure treatment?
It is always a good idea to avoid direct sunlight. However, due to unique technology of PicoSure, the risk of skin burn is minimal.
10What are the potential side effects of PicoSure treatment?
Typical side effects include temporary redness and swelling at the treatment site, which usually resolved in less than 1 hour, but in some cases may linger for up to 24 hours. Unwanted pigmentation associated with the acne scarring should slightly frost (whiten) during treatment, then darken over the following 24 hours and then shed over time (2-5 days)
