Skin Rejuvenation Q & A

What is skin rejuvenation?

Skin rejuvenation is an effective treatment to turn back the clock by minimizing the signs of aging and improving the appearance of your skin. Everest Urgent Care uses PicoSure for skin rejuvenation.

PicoSure is a breakthrough light-based technology to treat wrinkles, age lines, and even scars. Unlike some laser-based skin rejuvenation platforms, PicoSure doesn’t rely on harsh heat to burn away aging skin. Instead, using highly targeted energy, PicoSure gently disrupts the pigmented particles inside your skin that cause:

  • Freckles
  • Sun spots
  • Other discoloration

With PicoSure’s unique energy delivery system, you can achieve a smoother, healthier-looking complexion while avoiding the risks, pain, and downtime of traditional laser treatments.

How does PicoSure skin rejuvenation work?

PicoSure’s PressureWave™ technology uses a unique lens and wavelength of light to transform laser energy into gentle pressure.

This pressure penetrates your skin, squeezing the cells inside to cause an inflammatory response. This activity stimulates the natural cell signaling processes, spurring the formation of new collagen and elastin bonds without burning or damaging your skin.

Does PicoSure skin rejuvenation hurt?

For most patients, PicoSure treatment isn’t painful. The treatment is often compared to the feeling of snapping a rubber band on your skin. Dr. Li typically applies a numbing cream to minimize any possible discomfort during your skin rejuvenation treatment.

What happens during skin rejuvenation treatment?

PicoSure skin rejuvenation requires no special preparation. After you arrive at Everest Urgent Care, your doctor applies numbing cream. You also wear protective goggles to shield your eyes from the laser light.

During treatment, your doctor moves the handheld PicoSure device over your skin. You’ll hear a series of rapid clicking sounds as the laser penetrates your skin. Your session is quick, typically taking about 10-15 minutes.

After treatment, it’s common to experience about 1-3 hours of minor swelling and redness. Dr. Li usually suggests 2-5 treatment sessions to achieve the results you desire.

What happens after skin rejuvenation treatment?

Skin rejuvenation treatment requires no downtime. You can apply makeup, moisturizers, and sunscreen immediately after your treatment session. You can also go back to work and resume all of your usual activities.
