Frequently asked questions

What is PicoSure?

PicoSure® is the world’s first picosecond aesthetic laser platform for multiple aesthetic applications including tattoo removal, acne scar treatment, removal of pigmented lesions and wrinkle treatment.

Improve the look of your skin and achieve a more youthful appearance by removing pigment or treating wrinkles and acne scars faster than ever before with PicoSure.

What causes unwanted pigment?

Melanin gives us our skin color. Pigmented lesions including sunspots, age spots, and brown patches, are dark in color because the melanin is concentrated in one area of the skin. Most pigmented lesions come from sun exposure while some patients are born with them. Hormonal changes can also induce pigment changes in the skin.

What types of pigmented lesions can PicoSure remove?

This picosecond laser can remove a variety of benign unwanted pigmentation. Age spots, freckles, and brown patches can all be removed with PicoSure. Epidermal as well as dermal pigment can be treated very effectively. The alexandrite picosecond laser is very effective for treatments of Nevus of Ota with a lower number of sessions needed.

How many treatment sessions will it take?

A series of treatments is usually recommended. Each patient is unique and will be evaluated prior to treatment.

What does the treatment feel like?

What type of post treatment care is necessary?

It is important to keep the area clean and to avoid any irritation. Your practitioner will provided additional after care instructions as needed to ensure a quick recovery.

How does laser scar treatment work?

Unlike surgery, laser acne scar treatment uses ultra-short pulses of laser light to reach deeply into the skin’s sub-layers, treating the support structure. Then the body’s natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin—the crucial building blocks of normal-looking skin. It’s a fast and simple procedure that’s easy to tolerate and requires little-to-no downtime.
