Picosure Skin Revitilization and RejuvenationThe Picosure focused lens array is a relatively new laser that is used for photorejuvenation. Picosure is a 755 nm laser that delivers energy at the incredibly fast speed of a trillionth of a second. This laser was initially developed for tattoo removal and is still used for such, however, there is a second hand piece for the laser that allows for gentle resurfacing. This hand piece breaks the laser light into many fine “micro” focuses of energy that actually mimicks fractional resurfacing, such as with Fraxel. These micropulses of energy result in collagen and elastin production. Picosure is FDA approved for the treatment of wrinkles, sun spots and acne scars and as such is a great option for photorejuenvation. It is similar to Fraxel and other non-ablative resurfacing lasers as it improves freckles, brown spots, fine lines, skin texture and skin brightness; however, Picosure is less painful during the treatment and the subsequent “downtime” is reduced. Most patients are red and swollen for less than one day. Brown spots will get darker and peel off, but there is no roughness or dryness of the skin that follows after Fraxel. At MDLSV we are using this laser for resurfacing the face, in addition to chest, arms and legs.*
PicoSure is also the world's first safe and effective picosecond tattoo removal laser. PicoSure laser tattoo removal requires fewer treatment sessions, offers better results, and has faster patient recovery times compared to traditional tattoo removal lasers.
