New Service – PicoSure
Who Benefits From PicoSure?
PicoSure is a great option for patients seeking a way to improve their skin, or reduce signs of aging, with less risk & downtime than a traditional laser treatment.
What Is PicoSure?
PicoSure is revolutionizing the process of tattoo removal and skin revitalization treatments for wrinkles, acne scars and pigment like freckles, sunspots and discoloration. Unlike other laser treatments, PicoSure does not solely rely on heat to burn or melt away unwanted tattoo ink, melanin or scarring on the body.
The engineering behind the process utilizes physics and medical science to treat patients in a new way. PicoSure delivers energy so rapidly (in trillionths of a second) that tiny particles that make up pigment and tattoo ink vibrate and shatter, without burning surrounding tissue. This leads to less damage & discomfort for the patient. Additionally, PicoSure effectively converts the laser energy into gentle pressure waves that activate Cell Signaling, the body’s natural communication processes that create new collagen and elastin.
What Should I Expect?
There is no special preparation before a PicoSure treatment. A session usually lasts between 10-15 minutes, with minimal pain or discomfort following. Some patients have described the feeling similar to the snapping of a rubber band. Numbing cream may be provided to lessen this sensation. Directly following the treatment, skin will appear bright red, which this will fade in the hours following your session. Within 24 hours, many patients no longer show any sings of redness or inflammation.
