Pulses of light energy are targeted deep into the skin, which will target unwanted pigment and stimulating collagen production. This energy is absorbed, causing the body to start its natural healing process, resulting a refreshed and healthy-looking skin. PicoSure is great for:

  • getting rid of fine lines or wrinkles, brown spots, redness or discoloration for more balanced skin tone
  • tightening of the skin
  • laser the skin to tighten skin and boost collagen making
  • eliminate acne or surgical scars
  • remove unwanted facial or body hair
  • melasma
  • uneven texture
  • acne scars
  • hyperpigmentation
  • sunspots
  • birthmarks
  • minimize pores

How many PicoSure treatments do I need?

There are many factors that come into play when deciding how many treatments are needed, such as skin type, size of area treated, as well as the duration for the skin to heal. It is recommended for optimal results to do 3-4 sessions at 4-week intervals depending on the persons skin needs and desired results.

How does PicoSure help with tattoo removal?

With the amount of research into creating new technology for aesthetic purposes, PicoSure has taken tattoo removal to the next level, reducing pain during treatment, irritation to skin post-treatment, and faster results. How PicoSure helps remove unwanted tattoos is a high amount of energy is released in a short amount of time, causing the tattoo ink to shatter into small particles. With doing this treatment multiple times within a time frame, 4-6 weeks, in order to allow your skin to heal, the tattoo will then be removed, leaving behind no more ink pigmentation. It is important to space out the treatment by couple of weeks to reduce thermal damage to the skin, and to allow recovery time. It is also important to follow all post-care instructions, such as keeping the treated area away from any sub=n or UV exposure, applying hydrating cream to the area to help with scabbing and irritation, as well as not touching the affected area, as this will help with the healing process, and will speed up the recovery time.

How can PicoSure help treat acne scars?

Acne scars are one of the most difficult things to treat and requires multiple treatments in order to see results. With the use of PicoSure and its new high technology, acne scars appearance is reduced and eliminated, leaving the skin more rejuvenated.  The PicoSure laser works by combining the thermal damage with the picosecond technology to break up the acne scars.

What can I expect after a few PicoSure treatments?

After completing a series of treatments, you should notice a significant decrease in the appearance of acne scars, improved skin texture, complexion, as well as a reduced amount of acne. You will also notice your skin to be more plumped, as PicoSure helps with the production in collagen, creating more elasticity in your skin.

What should I do before my PicoSure treatment?

It is important before a PicoSure treatment to avoid any sun exposure as it decreases the effectiveness of the laser and increases post treatment complications. It is also important not to wear any makeup during the treatment, or any other product as it is best to work on clean skin.

What should I do after my PicoSure treatment?

After a PicoSure treatment, your skin will be very sensitive, and irritated. In this case, it is important to be gentle with your skin, especially when you are washing your face with a gentle cleanser and avoiding any exfoliation. It is important to stay away from the sun, and wear sunscreen, as your skin is sensitive, and must be protected from any UV rays such as the sun or tanning beds. It is also important not to scratch or use anything abrasive to your skin. If you are experiencing any scabbing, or dry patches, apply moisturizer 2-3 times a day in order to keep your skin hydrated, and help the healing process.

How much is a PicoSure treatment?

In terms of the cost for a treatment, it depends on numerous factors such as which treatment it is, the size of the area being treated, skin type that determines how many sessions is needed to get optimal results, as well as the area that is being treated, as some areas are more difficult than others. It is best to book a consultation with the specialist to further discuss your results you would like to achieve, in which we can determine the best way to help achieve them in the safest way.
