Enjoy No-Downtime Laser Facial Rejuvenation With PicoSure
When it comes to non-surgical and minimally invasive skin rejuvenation, there are a wide variety of options that could make your decision feel overwhelming. Skin care technologies have evolved rapidly, as new innovations have made the field of aesthetic medicine accessible to more people than ever before.
Laser technology is one such invention that has proven highly effective in improving common skin concerns. The energy these lasers generate allows for the rapid, non-invasive removal of discoloration, scarring, and blemishes on the skin. It works like a real-life airbrush, smoothing out and revitalizing skin almost instantly. But if you’ve done any research into laser skin treatments, you know there are a lot of choices available. How can you decide what’s best for your unique needs?
Meet PicoSure – the “Gold Standard” of Laser Skin Care
The PicoSure laser stands out among the rest as being one of the safest and most state-of-the-art laser technologies available today. Developed by a company called Cynosure, which has pioneered a broad array of light-based aesthetic treatments, PicoSure represents the cutting edge of what is possible in laser skin rejuvenation.
What makes PicoSure so effective? It uses what is known as short-pulse lasers that flash in trillionths of a second, also known as picoseconds. These rapid flashes deliver small bursts of energy deep within the skin to eliminate discoloration and other signs of aging, with minimal heat required. The result is a balanced, healthy appearance with almost no recovery time needed. The result is a balanced, healthy appearance with almost no recovery time needed.
Dr. Schmidt is one of the first physicians in Denver to offer this state-of-the-art laser technology for skin rejuvenation.
Exciting results! Dr Schmidt treated my melasma with PicoSure laser. I received 4 treatments total with fantastic results after just the first treatment and improved skin after each visit. Friends who don’t know I was doing PicoSure compliment how great my skin looks. Great office. Fabulous and friendly staff. Dr Schmidt is extremely knowledgeable and takes the time to answer all my questions. Very happy with the results! – Susan in Denver, Colorado
Who is a candidate for PicoSure laser rejuvenation?
PicoSure is a versatile, FDA-approved laser for skin revitalization. This technology is capable of addressing a range of issues; patients experiencing any of the following could be candidates for PicoSure:
Wrinkles and age lines
Discolored or uneven skin pigmentation
Acne scars and blemishes
PicoSure is also effective for tattoo removal. While other aesthetic products and lasers can treat similar conditions, PicoSure helps patients of all skin tones achieve ideal results without the pain, redness, and downtime.
How does it work?
PicoSure lasers send small, rapid bursts of energy deep into the skin, where it can break up areas of dark or discolored pigmentation. These ultra-short pulses penetrate damaged layers of skin cells and create smooth and healthy skin. Crucially, this procedure does not rely only on heat, so there’s no concern about burning or damaging skin tissue.
The laser also promotes healing as a part of the procedure itself. PicoSure produces pressure waves that activate your skin cells’ natural healing mechanisms, promoting the production of new collagen and elastin and kickstarting a process of renewal by removing aging layers of skin. In this way, once unwanted pigmentation has been removed, the skin tissue is revitalized from within.
Why Choose PicoSure?
PicoSure is an FDA-approved, advanced laser skin treatment for removing common skin imperfections. A medical device company called Cynosure developed the PicoSure laser after 13 years of research and development.
Dr. Schmidt can use PicoSure skin resurfacing on your face, neck, chest, legs, arms, and hands. The advantages of this procedure include:
Safe and highly effective for all skin types, including darker skin tones
Minimal discomfort and pain
Little to no side effects and downtime
Requires fewer treatments than other methods of laser resurfacing
Removes skin imperfections with no damage to surrounding skin
Results and Recovery
PicoSure laser skin revitalization is relatively painless. Many patients compare the sensation of the laser pulses to the snap of a thin rubber band.
PicoSure rejuvenation has a rapid recovery time due to the laser’s gentle, low-heat energy. This laser skin revitalization has few side effects. Most patients experience mild redness and minor swelling for no more than a day after the procedure. Overall, this technology offers a quick, low-risk, pain-free way to revive the face’s bright, youthful appearance.
Most people can typically resume their normal activities immediately following treatment. Depending on your concerns and treatment goals, Dr. Schmidt may recommend scheduling more than one session with the PicoSure laser.
If you’re considering laser skin resurfacing, you may still have some lingering concerns. To help you learn more about this treatment, read our frequently asked questions section below.
What makes PicoSure different from other laser treatments?
PicoSure is the world’s first and only picosecond cosmetic laser. Its uses include wrinkle removal, improving the look of hyperpigmentation and scars, and tattoo removal. This versatile laser technology delivers energy in pulses of trillionths of a second to target and eliminate pigment and stimulate healing, all without damaging the surrounding skin.
Why should I choose PicoSure?
If you are looking to achieve a more youthful appearance, but would like to avoid a procedure associated with significant downtime and side effects, the PicoSure laser is for you. Additionally, if your sun damage, freckles, pockmarks, or acne scars bother you, it’s time to consider treating these trouble spots quickly and painlessly.
What causes unwanted pigment?
Our skin color comes from melanin. Sunspots, age spots, moles, and freckles are darker than the surrounding skin because they have concentrated melanin in specific areas. Most of these issues result from sun exposure or hormonal changes, while some patients are born with them.
What types of pigmented areas can PicoSure remove?
PicoSure can remove a variety of unwanted pigment, including age spots, freckles, and sun damage. During your consultation, Dr. Schmidt will evaluate you and determine the best way to help you achieve a more regular, even skin tone.
How many treatments do I need?
Depending on how large and dark your benign pigmented marks are, you may require more than one treatment session with the PicoSure laser. During your consultation, Dr. Schmidt will discuss treatment expectations with you.
What does the treatment feel like?
Though everyone’s pain tolerance differs, most patients find the procedure comfortable and require no numbing cream or topical anesthesia. PicoSure delivers energy in ultra-short bursts, and patients often compare the feeling of the laser pulse to a light snap from a rubber band.
What type of post-treatment care is necessary?
After your PicoSure procedure, the treated area may be tender and red. You will be responsible for keeping your treated skin clean and to avoid any irritation and excess sun exposure. Dr. Schmidt will provide additional post-procedure instructions as needed to ensure a quick recovery.
