Beautiful skin has never been easier. Take years of your skin with as little as one treatment using the PicoSure FOCUS Lens array. Reduce fine lines and soften wrinkles, improve uneven skin pigmentation, diminish scars, stimulate new collagen and improve both the appearance and health of aging or sun-damaged skin without surgery or downtime. The Picosure FOCUS is FDA approved for treatment of wrinkles and acne scarring.
The PicoSure FOCUS lens array redistributes the laser pulse into an array of hundreds of highly concentrated microscopic beams which penetrate to a precise depth, stimulating collagen and elastin production, the building blocks of smooth, youthful skin.The result is reduced wrinkles and fine lines, textural smoothing, and more reflective skin.
PicoSure FOCUS skin revitalization is most often performed on the face, targeting;
Other areas of the body are also treated including hands, arms, legs and décolletage (chest, neck).
With minimal pain and downtime, this technological marvel is able to achieve at least the same results as other ablative and non-ablative fractional treatments which are associated with considerably more pain and downtime. In addition to the very quick recovery time, the long-lasting results with the FOCUS lens array are seen after a much shorter time period.
The FOCUS lens array stimulates collagen and elastin production and remodeling in acne scar tissue, restoring skin elasticity and reducing the appearance of the scar.
PicoSure clinical studies show a dramatic improvement in the appearance of acne scars in as little as three treatments, with >85% patient satisfaction at three-months follow-up.
The actual treatment will take 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. Protective eyewear will be worn during the entire duration of the treatment. The immediate result upon laser impact is mild redness of the skin which usually settles within a few hours. At the end of the treatment you will be instructed on how to care of the treatment area to minimise side effects.
The treatment is very well tolerated and usually performed with skin cooling (Zimmer). Numbing creams are also available to make you comfortable but this is rarely required.
Typically, you will want 2-3 treatments, but it may only require one treatment depending on your goal. Treatments can be performed 1 week or more apart.
Unprotected sun exposure within one week of treatment, including the use of tanning beds or tanning products, such as creams, lotions and sprays may interfere with the laser treatment and should be avoided. Prior to actual treatment, remove all makeup, lotions, deodorant or oil from the area to be treated.
After the treatment a mild sunburn sensation is often felt which is normal. Avoid sun exposure and use a 30+ SPF sunblock if sun exposure is unavoidable. Additional care will be discussed at the time of your visit.
