PicoSure Laser Q & A
What is PicoSure?
PicoSure is a state-of type of technology that disperses very short pulses of laser light deep into your skin’s layers. The quickness of the flashes dramatically decreases the amount of heat, lowering your risk of burns and adverse effects from a laser treatment.
PicoSure is designed to break up pigments and help your skin heal. Each burst of light breaks apart ink from tattoos or dark melanin-pigmented spots. As those darkened spots break apart, your skin naturally flushes them away and sends healthy new cells to the surface.
PicoSure even stimulates cell turnover and new tissue production to revitalize your skin and reverse the signs of aging.* The technology behind PicoSure is so advanced, it can treat a wide variety of skin issues and concerns.
What can PicoSure treat?
At Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center, you can get personalized PicoSure packages to treat a multitude of imperfections. Dr. Rigor can design a PicoSure treatment plan to:
- Remove tattoos
- Minimize age spots
- Reverse sun damage
- Even out pigmented spots
- Minimize lines, wrinkles, and scars
Dr. Rigor can often treat many types of skin issues during a single PicoSure session.
Is there any downtime after PicoSure?
PicoSure doesn’t require any downtime and causes little to no redness, so you can go right back to your regular activities after your session at Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center. Because PicoSure leaves your skin more vulnerable to sun damage, though, Dr. Rigor generally suggests covering your treatment area and applying a broad-spectrum SPF30+ sunscreen after your session.
How many PicoSure sessions do I need?
Your PicoSure treatment package at Rigor Dermatology & Laser Center is personalized to your specific concerns and skin care goals. For tattoo removal, it’s common to need 4-10 sessions, depending on your ink color. Or if you’re having skin revitalization treatments, you may need 2-5 sessions. Usually, you need at least 2-6 weeks between visits.
While your results after a PicoSure treatment plan are permanent, your skin is going to continue to age. If your PicoSure treatment plan was designed to minimize the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and pigmented spots, Dr. Rigor may suggest touch-up treatments once or twice a year. These sessions can prevent future pigment accumulation and slow down the appearance of wrinkles.
