How Does PicoSure Laser Work?

  • October 26, 2021

Are you struggling with signs of aging like acne scars, uneven skin tone and texture, age spots, wrinkles, and fine lines that make you look older? At Schmidt Facial Plastic Surgery, we proudly offer PicoSure laser treatment – a groundbreaking procedure that has revolutionized non-invasive skin care. Unlike other laser, skin resurfacing methods, PicoSure can renew your skin with minimal downtime.

How does PicoSure work, and what makes it so different from other treatments? Here, we’ll provide more details on our favorite benefits of this sought-after procedure so you can become a more informed patient.

1. Jump-Start Collagen and Elastin Production

As you age, your skin will lose the structural support and pliability that have kept it firm and tight, resulting in sagging, laxity, and the emergence of wrinkles. PicoSure works by generating energy that activates your body’s innate healing response, encouraging the tissues to rebuild and restore themselves from within. Your result will be a glowing complexion, thanks to diminished fine lines, skin discoloration, and other issues. PicoSure’s safe, FDA-cleared treatment method can even permanently improve stubborn acne scarring.

2. Safe to Use for Any Skin Tone

Another remarkable advantage of PicoSure is that unlike most other lasers, it can provide outstanding results for patients of all complexions. PicoSure is appropriate for skin types I to VI (the lightest to the darkest skin tones), and it won’t create any scarring or discoloration.

3. Remove Discoloration

PicoSure initially hit the market as an option for people seeking a way to make unwanted tattoos a thing of the past. While tattoo removal is still a popular reason to get a PicoSure laser treatment, the same technology that makes it so effective at removing old ink also means it can get rid of any other skin pigmentation you may view as a flaw. Instead of using heat, PicoSure’s innovative fast-pulse lasers deliver rapid-fire bursts of energy that cause the tiny pigment particles to vibrate so fast they shatter – all without harming the surrounding skin.

4. A Painless Treatment

Many people considering a PicoSure treatment hear the word “laser” and assume that means the procedure will hurt. While every person’s tolerance for pain varies, most of our patients report only a mild tingling sensation, equivalent to the feeling of a rubber band snapping against their skin. Overall, PicoSure tends to be a quick, comfortable treatment that doesn’t require any numbing, anesthetic, or pre-procedure instructions to follow.

Are You a Good Candidate for PicoSure?

PicoSure is a leading choice for people who are dissatisfied with wrinkles, scars, sun damage, or other skin complaints that make them look older but who do not want to worry about the risks and recovery time associated with more aggressive skin resurfacing methods. PicoSure is a gentle, quick, and highly versatile way to refresh your skin’s appearance, encourage new collagen and elastin formation, and reverse the common signs of aging.

The ideal candidate for PicoSure is someone who:

  • Is seeking a solution to blemishes, flaws, melasma, and uneven skin tone
  • Wants a treatment that has proven safe for all skin tones and types
  • Wishes to avoid downtime for recovery
  • Is concerned about side effects and risks that occur with other skin resurfacing techniques
  • Desires a quick, comfortable way to refresh their appearance
