The skincare and laser treatment world has been lately abuzz with PicoSure technology. While the treatment has received appreciation for procedures like dark spot removal, skin lightening, tattoo removal, etc, it is now being considered effective for other techniques like facial rejuvenation. 

PicoSure laser technique and facial rejuvenation

PicoSure is a noninvasive laser treatment that works by inducing Focus Lens energy on the target areas of the skin. The treatment has been designed to work on skin issues like blemishes, wrinkles, dark spots, sun spots, melasma, etc. 

What body parts is it used on?

The most common use of PicoSure Laser technology is on the face for the treatment of skin issues like acne scars, wrinkles, sine lines, dark spots, sun spots, blemishes, etc. However, the technology is sometimes also used on other skin areas for the removal of stubborn tattoos and skin tightening.

Additionally, the technology is of use in both young as well as older patients and is suitable for all age categories. 

The lasers work by penetrating the skin to identify the damaged tissue. These areas are targeted with “pico-speed” and “pressure waves” from the laser to break the scar tissue and remove the part non surgically and internally. 

Safety of PicoSure laser treatment

Compared to traditional laser treatments that relied solely on heat, PicoSure is a gentler treatment. The lasers used in the past were painful and resulted in issues like skin burn or significant redness for many days. 

With PicoSure, the laser energy is delivered in short bursts which makes it safer and more effective to treat skin problems while leaving the surface intact. 

While some patients may experience some inflammation, minor redness or irritation on the treated area, it remains only for a few hours after the treatment, making it a very safe process.

For those undergoing bigger treatments like tattoo removal, the side effects like redness, irritation can stay for a couple of days. 

In most cases, patients can return to their usual daily activities immediately after the treatment. 

How long does the Picosure laser procedure take?

Well, the treatment is known for its speed (pico-speed). And this is what makes PicoSure laser technology multiple times faster than traditional laser treatments. The super fast speed delivers light energy in quick but short bursts which help it to penetrate the inner layers of the skin. 

The result is seen as a clear, scar-free skin with a brighter complexion, and that too, in no time. Many people take PicoSure sittings during quick breaks in their office hours. 

Wondering how many sittings will it take for you to get your skin issues treated? Read on. 

Number of sittings required to see results

The number of sittings required to completely treat a skin issue is dependant on the underlying issue being treated. 

While tattoo removal is a stubborn process and may take multiple sittings, skin smoothening results can be seen in just one sitting too. 

However, complete removal of pigmentation or scars can take up to two weeks with intermittent sittings. 

Similarly, the wrinkle removal process can take multiple sittings. 

Skincare tips after PicoSure treatment

As mentioned above, most patients need no special skincare after the procedure and can immediately resume daily activities after the treatment. However, basic skincare precautions like staying out of the sun, using protective sunscreens, moisturizing, etc are recommended after the treatment
