PicoSure Q & A

What does the PicoSure laser do?

The revolutionary PicoSure laser is one of the most effective laser technologies available today. It uses short-pulsed laser energy to revitalize your skin and reduce the signs of aging. These short pulses of laser energy flash at just trillionths of a second — or picoseconds — to deliver thermal energy to targeted areas of your skin. PicoSure treatments are effective, yet extremely gentle, so you won’t have to worry about skin damage.

PicoSure laser treatments are highly effective at breaking up areas of dark pigmentation in your skin, including:

  • Freckles
  • Acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Sun spots
  • Melasma
  • Hyperpigmentation

PicoSure is an ideal solution for facial skin revitalization since there’s no risk of damaging delicate tissue. But you can also get treatments on other areas of your body. The PicoSure pulse technology is so powerful it can even break up the pigment from tattoo ink with only minor discomfort during the process.

What can I expect from a PicoSure laser treatment?

PicoSure laser treatments not only break up areas of darker pigment to revitalize your skin, but the energy also activates your body’s natural immune response with gentle pressure from the laser. It stimulates new collagen and elastin production, so your skin will appear more evenly toned, smoother, and have fewer visible wrinkles.

Most men and women compare the pulse of the laser to the snap of a rubber band, which is easily tolerated. If you’re concerned about comfort, you can request a topical numbing cream before your treatment begins.

After a series of PicoSure laser treatments, customized for your individual skin care needs, you can expect healthier, firmer, younger-looking skin without the inconvenience of having to spend time recovering.

How does PicoSure work to revitalize my skin?

The PicoSure technology relies on its unique PressureWave™ system, which converts laser energy into pressure. It’s unlike other laser treatments, in that it doesn’t use heat to burn away damaged skin or darker pigmentation. Instead, a gentle pressure from the laser penetrates below the surface of your skin without causing damage to the surrounding tissue.

It’s safe, easily tolerated, and most treatments take just 10-15 minutes. Results from PicoSure laser treatments are long-lasting, too, so you can get more youthful skin and a more even complexion in just a few treatments.
