PicoSure Laser is a picosecond laser that delivers short bursts of energy to the skin. It can be used to remove unwanted tattoos and improve skin discoloration and texture.
PicoSure Can Treat:
- Tattoos (All Ink Colors)
- Benign Pigmented Lesions
- Wrinkles and lines
- Acne or Surgical Scarring
- Stretch Marks
How Does it Work?
During a PicoSure Laser treatment, laser energy is delivered to the skin in an ultra-short energy pulse, resulting in removal of skin pigmentation as well as stimulation of new collagen production. Because there is no use of heat on the skin, there is no downtime or swelling.
Patients who want to remove their tattoos or have not had success with other tattoo removal systems may consider PicoSure. It is also a great treatment for those wishing to improve the appearance of age spots due to sun damage or acne scarring and pigmentation. PicoSure can also improve wrinkles.
When Can I Expect to See Results?
Depending on the size, color, and severity of your pigmentation, discoloration, or tattoo, you may need 3-10 sessions. The end result is reduced or completely removed tattoos, skin discoloration, and more even and youthful looking skin. Results are usually visible immediately following treatment, but the extent of improvement and healing time varies according to the surface area being treated.
Does it Hurt?
A PicoSure procedure is virtually painless and many patients report a mild stinging sensation. You may experience redness after your procedure.
