What Is PicoSure Laser Good For?
PicoSure is the first and only aesthetic picosecond laser for the safe and effective removal of tattoos and benign pigmented lesions, as well as acne scars, wrinkles and skin revitalization treatments. Clinical data shows better clearance in fewer treatments.
Is Pico Laser Painful?
After the PicoSure procedure, you will find that there is minimal downtime and pain. The pain is equivalent to a minor sunburn but goes away quickly. You may also find that you have slight redness to the treated areas. Any swelling or redness tends to go away in just 1-3 hours.
Is Pico Laser Safe?
The process of using a PicoSure laser for melasma is safe and painless. The primary irritant in most laser treatments is the extended exposure to heat, which the PicoSure laser system reduces.
How Often Can You Do Pico Laser?
Following treatment, patients will need to protect their sensitive skin from the harmful rays of the sun, which could cause hyperpigmentation. PicoSure treatments should be spaced 2-4 weeks apart, depending upon the site. Face, neck, hands chest, and arms may be treated.
Is PicoSure Permanent?
With PicoSure, tattoo and scar removal are permanent, so once you've undergone the treatment, you won't have to worry about the way you look ever again. You can even use PicoSure to treat wrinkles or remove pigment from your skin – just know that these conditions may return slowly as your skin continues to age.
How Do I Prepare For PicoSure?
Prior to your PicoSure treatment, we recommend avoiding tanning beds, sunless tanning creams and prolonged sun exposure for four weeks prior to your first appointment. We also recommend patients stop using topical retina, retinol or retinoid products 48 hours prior to treatment.
