PicoSure

The Perfect Treatment for pigment, wrinkles, and acne scars when you have no time for downtime.

PicoSure – The first and leading choice for comfortable and convenient tattoo removal and skin revitalization treatments for wrinkles, acne scars and pigment like freckles, sunspots and discoloration.

PicoSure is the first of a new generation of aesthetic lasers that don’t rely solely on heat to burn or melt away unwanted tattoo ink or melanin, the pigment that causes dark spots in your skin.

Instead, PicoSure engineers used cutting edge physics and medical science to help practitioners treat patients in a new way. Instead of building up heat, PicoSure delivers energy so rapidly (in trillionths of a second) that tiny particles that make up pigment and tattoo ink vibrate and shatter, without burning surrounding tissue. Less heat means less tissue damage and discomfort.

Even more impressively, PicoSure’s revolutionary technology is designed to harness the body’s natural healing processes to restore youthful skin in ways never before possible. Using proprietary Focus lens technology, PicoSure effectively converts the laser energy into gentle pressure waves that activate Cell Signaling, the body’s natural communication processes and one of the most exciting medical discoveries in recent history.

What does it do?

PicoSure’s unique energy delivery is a breakthrough for patients’ seeking a way to improve their skin and reduce signs of aging but who don’t want to deal with the risks, pain and downtime of traditional laser treatments. Using highly targeted energy, PicoSure gently disrupts the particles responsible for a range of pigment conditions like freckles, sunspots and other discoloration.

But there’s more. With the revolutionary Focus lens, PicoSure harnesses the latest breakthroughs in medical science to improve wrinkles, age lines and even acne scars. Unlike other lasers with similar results, PicoSure doesn’t rely on heat to burn away and destroy skin to force the body to heal.

Instead, PicoSure is designed to activate the body’s natural immune response while minimizing injury and discomfort. Because it uses gentle pressure instead of dangerous, damaging heat there’s no need for a long, painful recovery. In fact, most patients only experience a few hours of mild redness.

With PicoSure, there is no need to sacrifice safety, comfort or convenience for effectiveness. PicoSure does all this on your time.

FAQs

  • Topical anesthetic may be administered to increase patient comfort; although this is not routinely needed.

  • There is no downtime with PicoSure Focus facials. Patients may experience erythema that typically resolves within a few hours, but in some cases, may linger up to 24 hours. Since each patient is unique, we highly recommend following the outlined clinical guidelines to help optimize safety and efficacy before treatment.

  • Most unwanted pigment will significantly lighten or clear in 2-3 sessions.
