Using Skin Cell Activation, PicoSure skin revitalization laser treatment stimulates collagen and elastin production in your skin and subdermal tissue. Also, by inducing a natural healing response, PicoSure initiates dermal remodeling, PicoSure restores a youthful plumpness and smoothness to the skin, helping you to feel confident in your appearance. Originally approved to treat your face, PicoSure can also be used on your hands, arms, neck, and decolletage.
PicoSure can reduce the appearance of a variety of skin concerns including:
● Blemishes (including age and sun induced pigmentation)
● Fine lines
● Frown lines
● Crow’s feet
● Stretch marks and post-surgical scars
If you are in good health but are concerned about the condition of your skin, PicoSure may be a great treatment for you. Every patient has unique concerns, and skin conditions. Treatment plans and results may vary between patients.
Dr. Ito provides comprehensive consultations to determine the best treatment available to address your concerns and will make sure you understand your options before selecting a treatment. Some candidates may need a series of treatments to achieve the desired results.
A Picosure skin revitalization treatment usually lasts between 20-30 minutes during which you will be reclined or sitting depending on the treatment site. If a larger area of your body is being treated, you may need more time. Dr. Ito will use a handheld applicator to direct the PicoSure laser at your skin. To ensure your safety, a pair of goggles will be worn during the treatment. Some patients report a slight warming sensation, but since PicoSure works with short pulses of energy instead of heat energy, Picosure is more gentle than other forms of laser skin revitalization.
You should take care to protect your skin from the sun after PicoSure treatments. You can do this by wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen and broad-brimmed hats. After your PicoSure treatment, you should be able to get back to your normal activities as soon as your treatment is complete. After the treatment, you may have redness that usually lasts 1-2 hours and up to 24 hours.
