Our Techniques of Picosure Treatment

Consultation: First, we’ll have a consultation about your skin with a medical professional. Our practitioner will take a good look at your skin and figure out if this Picosure laser treatment is a good fit for you. It’s all about making sure we’re on the right track for your skin’s needs.

Preparation: before the treatment, we’ll give your skin a good clean and get it all prepped and ready for the laser. And don’t worry, we might put some numbing cream on the area we’re treating, just to keep any discomfort to a minimum.

Laser treatment: During the laser procedure, We’ll use the Picosure laser to send these ultra-short energy pulses straight to the spots that need it. This laser is pretty intense and precise, so it shatters the skin pigment or particles that are causing problems, and then your skin takes care of the rest.

Post-treatment care: After the treatment, your skin might feel a bit red or tender, but don’t worry, that won’t last long. We might put a little soothing cream or ointment on the treated area to help calm things down and speed up the healing. Try to keep the area out of direct sunlight for a bit. We want to make sure your skin heals perfectly and doesn’t get any extra pigmentation from the sun.

What is Picosure Treatment for Skin Rejuvenation and Tattoo Removal?

The Picosure laser is a picosecond laser for aesthetic dermatologic procedures, including laser tattoo removal. It works well on hyperpigmentation issues like sunspots, age spots, acne scars, and other forms of scaring. This advanced tool uses three distinct wavelengths (532nm, 755nm, and 1064 nm) to precisely target and treat different skin pigments. These different wavelengths allow for the careful treatment of various pigments. It is recommended that the PicoSure® laser system continue to be used for safe and effective tattoo removal, including for red and yellow pigments and even all skin types including lighter and darker tones.

How Does Picosure Treatment Work?

The Picosure laser treatment works by using selective photothermolysis, which targets the chromophore inside your skin using light to heat it up until it breaks. During the laser session, the Picosure laser transmits energy into the area of the skin that contains scars or unwanted pigmentation, which removes the excess pigmentation or scars from the skin and allows the body to create new collagen and elastin production. The Picosure Focus Treatment stands out because it uses extremely brief flashes of light and has a very short pulse duration. “Pico” in its name indicates that the laser emits light bursts lasting less than a billionth of a second. This quick action prevents heat from accumulating and potentially harming nearby skin or causing additional pigmentation issues. Additionally, compared to other lasers, the Picosure treatment is gentle and typically not painful.
