You Look Great! PicoSure Laser Just in Time for Back to School

  • September 4, 2019

“Back to school” used to mean shopping for school supplies, finishing off your summer reading list, and sometimes refreshing your wardrobe with a few fresh new outfits. Today, however, more and more students are opting to get cosmetic treatments over their summer break so they can head back to school with a fresh new look and a boost of confidence. 

Most people have busy schedules and are looking for non-invasive treatment options that can save time. The PicoSure Laser is a great option for anyone who wants to get smoother, fresher skin with minimal downtime for recovery, just in time to start a new school year on the right foot.

Why Add PicoSure to Your Back-to-School Beauty Checklist?

PicoSure is a cutting-edge skin solution that addresses multiple skin concerns simultaneously. Dr. Jeffrey Schmidt is proud to bring this treatment option to clients throughout the Denver area who have skin flaws including:

  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Freckles and age spots
  • Discoloration

PicoSure is unique among laser skin resurfacing treatments because it is simultaneously gentle and powerful. It delivers rapid-fire bursts of energy into the skin cells, triggering a built-in healing response while breaking up discoloration. Remarkably, the laser leaves the skin surrounding the treated area undamaged.

Unlike more invasive techniques for improving the appearance of the skin, there is no healing time necessary for recovering from a PicoSure treatment, and the laser’s most common side effect is mild redness – there is no peeling or scabbing, which may result from other types of lasers. Another advantage of PicoSure over many other lasers is that it can provide outstanding outcomes for patients of all complexions, even those with darker skin tones.  

 What Makes PicoSure So Effective?

A company called Cynosure developed the PicoSure laser after researching the technology for more than a decade. PicoSure has also earned FDA approval, so you can feel confident in its safety and efficacy. 

PicoSure’s innovative lasers pulse in trillionths of a second – so fast that they cause the tiny particles of pigment in the skin to vibrate until they shatter. The energy it generates also triggers the body’s built-in healing process, which allows your tissues to rebuild and restore themselves through the production of new collagen and elastin. Our skin naturally makes less of these two structural proteins as we get older, which causes common age-related issues such as thinner skin, wrinkles, and sagging. PicoSure treatment can help reverse these problems and lead to a revitalized appearance. 

Am I a Good Candidate for PicoSure?

PicoSure is an excellent choice for anyone who is worried about wrinkles, scars, sun damage, freckles, or other skin blemishes, but who would prefer to avoid the risks and recovery time associated with more invasive skin resurfacing techniques. PicoSure is a gentle, quick, and highly versatile way to refresh your skin’s surface, encourage new collagen and elastin formation, and reverse many telltale signs of premature aging. 

The ideal candidate for PicoSure is someone who:

  • Needs to address blemishes, flaws, and uneven skin tone
  • Is seeking a solution that is safe for all skin types
  • Does not want to worry about a lengthy recovery time
  • Is worried about experiencing side effects that can happen with other methods of skin resurfacing 
  • Desires a quick, pain-free way to refresh their appearance

How to Maintain the Results of Your PicoSure Treatment

After getting PicoSure, there is no need to take time out of your daily routine for healing, and there are also no activity restrictions. However, it is vital to establish a habit of avoiding excessive sun exposure after getting laser skin treatment, especially during the long, sunny days of summer. 

PicoSure will make your skin more sensitive to the harmful UV radiation that comes from the sun, so if you don’t want to reverse all the improvements you have seen with PicoSure, staying out of the sun is your best course of action. When you do have to spend time outdoors, use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30, and apply regularly to shield yourself from sun damage.
