What is PicoSure?
PicoSure is a quick and easy non-surgical, non-invasive laser skin treatment. PicoSure laser focuses on your problem areas, from brown spots, sun damage, freckles, pigmented lesions or acne scars. PicoSure offers a gentler treatment. In the past, lasers have relied on intense heat energy to remove pigment from the skin, which may be painful and lead to significant skin redness and downtime. The PicoSure technology combines a dual approach when treating skin conditions: a photothermal process and a photomechanical impact based on ultra-short pulse duration. This combination of photothermolysis and intense photomechanical impact, known as Pressure Wave™, breaks up the intended target while allowing the surrounding area to remain undamaged. It is this combined effect that restores normal skin elasticity in the scar tissue and thus reducing the appearance of the acne scar.
Treatments last about 15-20 minutes and most patients require 2-3 treatments. This procedure requires no downtime and is performed in our office. We do recommend to avoid sun exposure (including sun beds) for at least 4 weeks prior to treatment and 4 weeks after treatment. If it’s not possible to avoid the sun then don’t stay exposed for long periods and always use a sunscreen of a minimum SPF30 on exposed areas. Avoid hot baths/showers, saunas, swimming pools, creams, body lotions for 48 hours after your treatment.
