Pigments, wrinkles, and acne scars take the focus away from attractive facial features and cause patients to appear and feel less attractive than they are. PicoSure is a laser treatment option that is used to remove unwanted conditions and provide patients with healthy, youthful looking skin. PicoSure is very popular because unlike other laser treatments, PicoSure is painless and there is no downtime after treatment. Wave Plastic Surgery proudly offers patients customized PicoSure treatments designed to meet their aesthetic goals and expectations.
How PicoSure Works
A PicoSure laser provides a burst of gentle pressure to the skin. This is much milder but equally as effective as intense heat energy that is used during traditional laser treatments. When treated with PicoSure, skin pigments are lightened to the point where they are no longer visible. Additionally, PicoSure stimulates the production of collagen and elastin to rejuvenate and strengthen the skin. Skin is never burned or damaged during a PicoSure treatment.
A PicoSure treatment only takes about ten to fifteen minutes. It is performed in a Wave Plastic Surgery in-office suite. A topical numbing cream is applied to minimize discomfort. The PicoSure device is gently placed on areas the patient wishes to improve. The PicoSure laser provides a gentle burst of pressure to treat the areas. After their procedure, patients may experience redness and swelling that can easily be treated using ice and skin cream. Patients may return to normal activities immediately after their procedure.
Patients who undergo a PicoSure procedure receive results similar to those seen with many facial rejuvenation surgical procedures, including the following:
- Pigment removal
- Skin texture, tone, and appearance improvements
- Reduction in acne scar visibility
- Reduction in visible signs of aging
Patients who take care of their skin and apply sunscreen when outdoors can expect maximum and long-lasting results.
