What is PicoSure?
PicoSure is a skin rejuvenating laser treatment that uses short bursts of targeted laser energy to reduce the appearance of scarring and pigmentation left behind by acne. These short, targeted bursts of energy allow the scar tissue and pigmentation to be broken up without damaging the surrounding skin. This laser treatment is more gentle than other treatments used to improve the appearance of acne scarring and has no downtime associated with it.
What can I expect during a treatment session?
The PicoSure laser is more gentle than other acne scar treatments used to reduce the appearance of acne scarring and there is minimal discomfort associated with this treatment. Patients may experience a tingling sensation during a PicoSure treatment. At the patient’s request, a topical numbing cream can be applied to the treated area prior to treatment to reduce any discomfort. Acne scar treatment sessions typically last between 15 and 30 minutes. The length of a treatment session can vary depending on the size of the treated area.
How many treatments will I need?
We typically recommend six treatments spaced three to four weeks apart in order to achieve optimal results. The number of treatments required can vary from patient to patient depending on the severity of the acne scarring. Multiple treatments may be required in order to achieve desired results. Results may vary.
Are there any side effects?
Some patients may experience some mild redness in the treated area following a treatment session. This redness should subside within a few hours of treatment. There is no downtime associated with PicoSure laser treatments and most patients are able to immediately return to their normal routines. We do recommend patients use additional sun protection if they plan to spend time outdoors following a treatment session.
Am I a candidate?
PicoSure laser treatments are safe and effective for most skin types. During your initial consultation, a member of our staff will review your general health, overall medical history, specific skin condition, and desired results and recommend the appropriate treatment for you.
