Picosure is FDA approved laser treatment that not only offers faster tattoo removal but helps those suffering from hyperpigmentation. Whether you have age spots, sun spots, treatment induced hyperpigmentation or something else, Picosure may be the treatment that is right for you.
Picosure laser works by the principle of removing damaged layers of skin. Layer by layer of skin is removed so after few treatments your new skin is revealed. The light from the laser stimulates collagen production which rejuvenates the skin and removes skin irregularities itself. In that way hyperpigmentation spots become past.
The ideal candidate for Picosure laser are people who have a condition that can be treated with Picosure, such as scars, tattoos, pigmentation etc. If you are on any prescription medications, you have to inform your doctor about your medications and conditions.
Prior to Picosure treatment, it is important to make an appointment with an expert who will evaluate your skin and condition and determine if Picosure is the right option for you. You have to inform your doctor of all conditions, including cold sores, your medications, allergies, as well if you are a smoker or not. You have to stop smoking two weeks prior to your treatment and avoid certain medications. You should avoid sun exposure and use sunscreen with high SPF.
How does the procedure look like?
You are given local or general anesthesia, depending on the area that is being treated. A single session may take from 15 to up to 45 minutes. It depends on the size of the area and level of hyperpigmentation.
