What is PicoSure used for?
PicoSure treatment is used for rejuvenating the skin related to skin sagging and ageing issues. The laser treatment is specially designed for dark skin.
It also rejuvenates the dermal and sub-dermal skin at the same time. This helps the skin to combat issues like –
- Skin sagging
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Pigmentation due to sun damage
- Dark spots
- Uneven skin tone and texture
It is a non-invasive and gentle procedure that involves penetration of laser in 皮秒which means one-trillionth of a second. This is why the laser does not injure the skin, rather it creates pressure on the skin through the patented Pressure Wave photoacoustic laser therapy. This means, the laser penetrates multiple skin layers without causing any kind of damage.
Apart from reducing the melanin pigment, PicoSure treatment also helps in 去斑. With such a short pulse time, the chance of pigmentation and dark spots are also less. This treatment is certified by the FDA for reducing melanin pigment as the laser penetrates the deepest layers of the skin.
Most tattoos and scars are also removed with this procedure and the results are considered to be permanent. It vibrates the cells of the skin to break the cell walls that contain the pigment. This is then removed from the skin through a natural cycle of skin cell turnover.
Some other laser treatments might injure the skin but PicoSure needs only thermal energy to stimulate the regeneration of collagen and the formation of new cells.
How many treatments are needed?
The number of treatments you need depends on the specific goals that might require more or fewer treatment sessions than other patients. Usually, you would need 3 or 4 sessions to achieve a good appearance. The treatments are spaced for at least 2 to 4 weeks. If you have sensitive skin or a dark complexion, the treatment can continue for about 8 weeks.
- For wrinkles and fine lines, you may need 2-3 treatments
- Pigmentation issues like hyperpigmentation due to sun damage, dark spots, freckles, skin discolouration may need 3 or 4 treatments to correct.
- Scars and tattoo removals need 4 to 5 treatments
The treatment is safe for anybody interested in rejuvenating their skin. If you have skin issues like ageing problems, removal of moles or dark spots, or other pigment-related concerns then opt for PicoSure treatment to achieve the best results for your skin.
