Skin rejuvenation comes in many forms. Surgery, injectables and laser treatments are just a few examples of the procedures you can receive to look younger. The key is to find the method that works best for your skin type and cosmetic goals. A consultation at Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics can help you find a solution that will produce natural and long-lasting results.
If you’re interested in laser treatment, you have plenty of devices to choose from. Some are ablative, meaning they remove the top layer of skin while others are non-ablative and focus on restoring the skin’s natural healing and response system. Depending on the aging qualities you exhibit, one or both devices may be right for you.
PicoSure stands out from other lasers on the market due to its ability to turn energy into pressure that gently works to rejuvenate the skin. Laser treatment with PicoSure may be just what you need to look and feel your best.
What Does PicoSure Treat?
PicoSure is designed for the treatment of acne scars and wrinkles as well as hyperpigmentation on the skin. The unique 755nm wavelength allows PicoSure to promote your body’s natural healing mechanism, which works to rejuvenate the skin over time.
With PicoSure laser treatment, your body becomes capable of restoring skin on its own, which allows it to continue improving aging imperfections after your treatment is complete. Although the production of collagen and elastin is a gradual process, you will notice a significant improvement in your skin in several weeks.
Is PicoSure Treatment Safe?
Treatment with PicoSure is one of safest lasers available. Due to the PicoSure’s PressureWave technology, the system converts laser energy into pressure that squeezes skin cells and initiates cell signaling. It’s this communication between cells that prompts the production of collagen and elastin in the body, turning over damaged skin cells and providing optimal rejuvenation. The conversion of laser energy into a pressurized response ensures that your surrounding skin faces no additional harm. You will not experience any burning or tissue damage during your laser treatment.
How Does It Compare to Fraxel?
Another popular laser treatment is Fraxel — an ablative laser that reduces wrinkles and sun damage. When considering your options with laser procedures, you might feel torn between Fraxel and PicoSure.
Fraxel and PicoSure are different yet highly efficient laser energy systems that work based on your cosmetic goals for treatment. If you have a tight timeline and can withstand a few days of downtime, the Fraxel will benefit you specifically as it only requires a single treatment session. PicoSure, on the other hand, is much more gentle but can effectively reduce fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation and acne scarring over a period of three or four treatment sessions.
If you’re curious about treatment with PicoSure, we recommend you schedule a consultation at Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics at 858-943- 2443 (Rancho Bernardo) or 760-472- 5088 (Carlsbad) to learn whether you are a candidate for laser treatment. With an evaluation of your skin and discussion of your cosmetic goals, we can determine whether PicoSure would benefit you.
