The PicoSure laser system uses innovative picosecond technology to provide non-invasive skin rejuvenation. It is the first of a new generation of aesthetic lasers that do not rely solely on heat to reduce hyperpigmentation on the skin. Instead, the pigment is shattered, without burning the surrounding tissue. Even more impressively, PicoSure’s technology is designed to harness the body’s natural healing processes to restore youthful skin in ways never before possible.
At Marlowe & Marrs, we use the PicoSure laser to address the following:
Skin Rejuvenation With PicoSure
PicoSure sends short, concentrated pulsating beams of energy at skin imperfections to repair damaged skin. This energy also stimulates new collagen and elastin growth, which keep the skin hydrated and elastic. As your treated skin heals, the new skin that forms will be smoother, tighter, and younger-looking.
PicoSure is the first generation of aesthetic lasers that do not rely solely on heat to burn away hyperpigmentation. Instead of building up heat, PicoSure delivers rapid energy (in trillionths of a second) to break up the unwanted pigment in your skin without damaging the surrounding skin.
Skin Rejuvenation Procedure
Before your laser treatment, it is very important that you avoid sun exposure in the two weeks prior to your appointment.
With laser skin rejuvenation, there is no special prep and the treatment typically takes about 10-15 minutes. Most patients experience no pain and describe the treatments as feeling like the snapping of a rubber band against their skin. Before the procedure, we will apply a topical numbing cream to your skin so you will feel as comfortable as possible.
After your treatment, you may experience 1-3 hours of minor swelling and redness. Because these laser systems do not damage the surface of your skin, you can apply makeup moisturizers, and sunscreens immediately following your treatment.
Skin Rejuvenation Results
Results will vary, but you may see improvement shortly after your first treatment. As new collagen begins to remodel, you will notice a continued improvement to the treated areas for the next three months. When you come in for your consultation at Marlowe & Marrs, we will create an effective treatment regimen for your specific goals. Most patients receive 3-5 sessions, spaced 2-4 weeks apart.
