What Can PicoSure Do For Your Skin?

The PicoSure laser helps remove wrinkles, dark spots, acne scarring, and tattoos. It is the first of a new generation of lasers, with its cutting-edge technology allowing for optimal results with very little downtime. Other laser resurfacing treatments like the Fractional CO2 laser and IPL can be  extremely uncomfortable and have significant downtime for the patient.


What’s especially nice about the PicoSure laser is that it doesn’t rely solely on heat to burn unwanted tattoo ink or pigmentation (dark spots in your skin). Instead, it delivers energy so rapidly that tiny particles that make up pigment and tattoo ink shatter without burning the surrounding tissue. Less heat means less damage and discomfort.  It also sends a signal to your body activating your skins cells to respond, which then produces new collagen and elastin for healthier, younger looking skin.  This breakthrough technology is perfect for anyone over the age of 35 looking to slow down the aging process, anyone with pigmentation issues or suffering from acne scarring.



When you come in for your treatment our esthetician will apply a topical numbing cream to help minimize any discomfort. After approximately 30 minutes of numbing, the treatment will begin – and it takes only 10-15 minutes! Another great thing about PicoSure is the minimal downtime,. Typically, patients have mild redness for only a few hours after the procedure and can return to work and their regular activities. With other lasers, the downtime can last up to a week!  We require that you get a minimum of 3 PicoSure treatments, though it should be noted that more may be needed depending on the condition being treated. Once you have reached the results you want, we highly recommend that you get another treatment every 6 months to help prevent accumulation of pigment and slow the appearance of wrinkles.
