This page addresses some of the most common questions people have about Picosure laser as an anti-aging skin procedure.
What is PicoSure laser for skin rejuvenation?
PicoSure is a quick and easy non-surgical, non-invasive laser skin treatment for those seeking a more youthful appearance. PicoSure laser focuses on your problem areas: whether it’s brown spots, sun damage, freckles, pigmented lesions, or acne scars.
How does PicoSure work for acne scars?
Acne scars become more apparent as skin ages because the skin loses collagen and elasticity. PicoSure uses quick pulses of laser energy to rejuvenate the skin and make it more elastic, which reduces the appearance of acne scars. It stimulates collagen production within the scars to build the indented areas back to the natural skin’s surface.
Is PicoSure laser treatment safe?
PicoSure offers a safer and gentler treatment than other laser skin procedures. Some laser technologies rely on intense heat energy to remove pigment from the skin, which can be painful and lead to significant skin redness and downtime. The PicoSure laser treatment minimizes the amount of heat applied to the skin, so you don’t have to worry about long-lasting side effects.
Is PicoSure laser skin rejuvenation painful?
Most patients do not consider PicoSure for skin rejuvenation to be painful. It generally feels like a warm or tingling sensation.
What to expect after PicoSure: Is there downtime?
After completing a PicoSure treatment for skin rejuvenation, you may experience slight redness and minor swelling for a few hours. Recovery tends to be quick, and downtime is minimal. Some patients use cooling cream after treatment to alleviate minor discomfort.
