Whether you are an adult or a teenager, you could benefit from Picosure for acne scars at our center in Jacksonville. Acne is embarrassing for teens and adults alike and can leave deep scars. Picosure is a new laser treatment that can remove most severe acne scars. The innovation is an unmatched photomechanical impact with ultra-short pulses that gives better skin clearance in a fewer number of treatments than other laser scar treatments. By rejuvenating the skin, Picosure removes skin irregularities such as acne scarring, hyper-pigmentation, tattoos and damage from sun exposure.
Picosure is also good for anti-aging. The laser light stimulates collagen production deep in the skin that produces new skin cells so younger-looking skin without scars comes to the surface.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Picosure for Acne Scars?
Ideal candidates for Picosure acne scar removal include those who have dry skin that generally does not scar. Skin with wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne or uneven pigmentation can benefit greatly from this treatment.
Picosure is usually recommended for people with major scars. If you have acne or other scars that you would like to get rid of, we welcome you for a consultation with our Jacksonville expert when you can learn more about Picosure for acne scars. If it is prescribed to remove your acne scars, you may be asked about any prescription medication or dietary supplements you are taking and if you have any pre-existing conditions. This will help ensure that you receive the best results possible with this treatment.
A Picosure treatment is delivered in picoseconds while other lasers deliver in nanoseconds. This means you can reduce the number of treatments and get faster results. If desired, we can use a cooling cream to help reduce the slight pain you may feel from the laser.
Treatment sessions usually last about 30 minutes according to your skin type. It may take several sessions to achieve the results you are hoping to get. When you talk to our specialist, you can ask about realistic expectations about the results so you are happy with the outcome. There may be some temporary redness and swelling, but this is normal and should go in a few days. You can put cold compresses to relieve any discomfort.
