PicoSure Laser – Pigmentation | Wrinkles | Acne Scars | Tattoos
- Posted on: Jan 11 2019
Is clear skin on your list of New Year’s resolutions? A PicoSure photofacial works wonders for shattering stubborn pigment and melasma, tightening the skin, minimizing pores and returning & reviving your skin to optimal condition. As the first FDA approved and TGA listed laser technology for the permanent reduction of acne scarring, pigmentation, and oversized pores, PicoSure offers fast & noticeable improvements to your complexion in just one treatment and incredible results with a series.
How does it work?
PicoSure’s ‘PressureWave’ technology uses a unique wavelength of light in conjunction with a specialized lens to convert laser energy into gentle pressure. This pressure squeezes the cells, activating the natural cell signaling process that creates new collagen and elastin without burning or damaging the skin.
What to expect?
Most people experience little to no pain – we offer the option to topically numb prior to treatment to make the procedure as comfortable as possible. Many describe the feeling as similar to lightly snapping rubber bands. Post-procedure, you can expect slight redness & minor swelling for 1-3 hours, tightening in the skin, a warm sensation and a temporary darkening of the targeted pigment.
PICOSURE TATTOO REMOVAL
Approximately 45 million people in the US alone have tattoos- of those 45 million, over 20% regret at least one. If you are one of the millions who no longer identify with their tattoo(s) & wish to have them removed, we’ve got you covered! PicoSure Laser Tattoo Removal treatments are unparalleled, offering long-lasting results with minimal downtime.
How does it work?
Picosure differs from other tattoo removal lasers because of it’s innovative PressureWave technology that specifically targets the tattoo ink – successfully shattering the ink particles without harming the surrounding tissue; allowing for clearer skin & quicker recovery time. The Picosure boasts a more efficient & less painful treatment than those before & is able to target previously difficult colored tattoos far more effectively than its competition.
What to expect
While not pain-free, tattoo removal has been described as feeling similar to the tattooing process. We provide topical numbing cream to assist with comfort and depending on the size of tattoo the process may only last for minutes. The number of treatments needed is dependent on a variety of things- the size of the tattoo, location on the body and lifestyle habits. Treatments typically occur every 6-8 weeks & decided upon at your initial consultation.
