Can PicoSure Be Used On All Skin Types?

Can PicoSure Be Used On All Skin Types?

When it comes to laser skin rejuvenation, you might think you know your treatments.  But if you haven’t considered PicoSure for a rejuvenating skin treatment, then you’re missing out on one of the most innovative ways to treat the appearance of fine lines, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and other complexion woes. *

While PicoSure may be best known as the gold standard for laser tattoo removal, this treatment can also achieve noticeable skin rejuvenation results.*  In fact, just a few sessions of PicoSure can lead to remarkable results, including:

  • Reduction in hyperpigmentation*
  • Smoothing of skin texture and tone*
  • Minimization of fine lines and wrinkles*
  • Fading of scars and stretch marks*

One of the most noteworthy things about the PicoSure treatment is that it’s virtually painless and involves little to no downtime.*  Additionally, the procedure itself takes just 15 minutes to administer.

The PicoSure laser works by rapidly delivering gentle pressure to the skin which breaks down pigment and stimulates the body’s ability to form new collagen and elastin.*  Since it mechanism is photomechanical (not photothermal like many other lasers) it can be used on virtually all skin colors.

After treatment, clients should expect to feel as though they have a mild sunburn.  Patients may want to avoid strenuous exercise for the first week after the treatment to prevent exacerbation of the sensitive area.  Most patients will need about six PicoSure treatments to see ideal results.*
