What is PicoSure?
PicoSure is a laser treatment therapy that sends ultrashort light pulses (within picoseconds) using a special lens. The light pulses convert laser energy into gentle pressure that causes an inflammatory reaction deep in your skin. That process triggers a natural healing response at the cellular level as your skin builds new collagen and elastin to smooth the appearance of scars. It’s also a great way to blast away ink particles from an unwanted tattoo.
PicoSure is an excellent choice for tattoo removal and reducing scars’ appearance, whether they’re old, new, small, or large.
3 amazing benefits of PicoSure therapy
PicoSure is an effective and quick way to get blemish-free skin.
Do you want to achieve a youthful appearance before holiday parties this year? PicoSure can help. Reducing the appearance of scars makes you more confident and ready to enjoy special events with family and friends. One means of skin rejuvenation is the removal of age spots. PicoSure laser treatment is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat age spots and is shown to improve the texture and appearance of scars, revealing smooth, soft skin.
Everest Urgent Care providers offer more than emergency services, such as tattoo removal. PicoSure laser treatment reduces the appearance of scars and removes tattoo ink using the ultrashort pulses. Pressure and thermal energy heat up and break apart ink bits into tiny dust-like particles. PicoSure works just as well on stubborn inks like blues and greens. If you have a previously treated tattoo that won’t go away, PicoSure can successfully eliminate it.
The PicoSure laser treatment is quick and relatively painless, similar to getting that tattoo in the first place. Your number of treatments depends on how large the tattoo is, ink type, location on your body, and lifestyle. Every patient responds to this process differently, but it typically takes only four to eight weeks to see the tattoo disappear.
Minimize the appearance of acne scars
Acne is a common skin condition that affects most Americans at some point in their lives. Unfortunately, even after the acne disappears, you’re left with deep pits or scars that won’t go away. The appearance of these blemishes can be significantly reduced using the PicoSure laser and its innovative Pressure Wave® technology. Unlike other laser treatments, PicoSure works effectively on darker skin tones as well.
Using PicoSure to reduce acne scars isn’t a painful process. Most patients say it feels like a rubber band snapping their skin. Sessions are quick, lasting no more than 15-20 minutes, so you can even schedule an appointment on your lunch break. You might see mild swelling for a few hours after the treatment, but you can return to work and normal activities immediately following the noninvasive procedure. Dr. Li typically recommends staggering treatments every three to four weeks.
