Picosure is a popular and effective cosmetic medical technology that can be used for treating a variety of cosmetic and dermatological issues. The machine was created by a top medical device company: Cynosure. This team has a long history of success in the cosmetic industry, and has continued their track-record with the development of Picosure. Even though there are many different types of laser treatments available in the industry, Picosure is unique because of the revolutionary way laser energy is used with picosecond technology. The pulses of energy are ultra-small – so small that they need to be measured in picoseconds (a picosecond is one trillionth of a second). Because the pulses are so fast and small, the technology offers better targeting and precision in the treatment area. Additionally, the precision in delivering the laser technology helps by targeting the specific areas that you want to treat while also minimizing damage to healthy tissues in the area. If patients are concerned about potential complications or side effects, Picosure is an excellent choice instead of other cosmetic laser treatments. The recovery time is fast and simple, which means minimal downtime is necessary after each appointment. Of course, there are potential risks and limitations. But you can discuss these details with your provider in the consultation.
The most popular way to use Picosure is for tattoo removal. Since tattoos are created by injecting ink into the skin (the dermis layer), a laser treatment needs to reach into the skin where the ink is located so the color can be removed. The picosecond pulses of Picosure go deep into the skin and break up the pigmented areas. As the tattoo ink breaks into tiny particles, then the body’s natural immune responses can take over to remove the ink. This ink fragmentation process allows for faster and more effective tattoo removal services. Additionally, Picosure can remove a wider range of ink colors compared to other tattoo removal technologies, including stubborn colors like blue and green. Also, Picosure is an excellent treatment for people who want to revitalize and rejuvenate their skin. Patients choose these laser treatments to overcome common complaints, such as pigmented lesions, skin irregularities, wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars. As the laser’s short pulses move into the skin, it promotes the production of collagen and elastin, which positively impacts skin firmness and elasticity. The result: Picosure treatments can improve overall skin tone, texture, appearance, and more. Many people find that their skin looks refreshed and youthful after the treatment.
