Do you wish that you could refresh your skin without downtime or discomfort? Are you looking to obtain smoother, brighter skin that glows? PicoSure® laser technology is considered to be one of the best devices on the market for skin rejuvenation. This innovative laser uses extremely fast (as in one trillionth of a second) bursts of light to break up pigment in the skin. PicoSure® can be used to address a wide range of cosmetic skin issues, from softening fine lines and acne scars to removing brown spots, with beautiful results that provide glowing skin. The PicoSure® laser uses a specialized Focus Lens Array that stimulates new collagen and elastin production and protects the surrounding skin. Additionally, the PicoSure® laser can be used to safely and effectively remove tattoos with fewer sessions than standard laser tattoo removal.
Dr. Eugenie Brunner, our board certified facial plastic surgeon, utilizes the PicoSure® laser for a variety of purposes. PicoSure® can be used to effectively fade tattoos of any color in less time than many other lasers, including a Q-switched laser (although a Q-switched is often better for patients with darker skin). This device can also rejuvenate the skin, softening the appearance of wrinkles, improving skin tone and texture, and generating a youthful glow. PicoSure® enhances skin’s radiance so well, many patients have taken to calling it the “Pico Glow.” And for individuals suffering from acne scars, PicoSure®’s ability to stimulate collagen production can reduce depressions in the skin.
Treatment with PicoSure® can often be completed in as little as 30 minutes and downtime is often brief. Most patients appear a little pink in the treated area, but they should be able to return to normal activity immediately.
