Melasma Q & A

How does the PicoSure laser work?

PicoSure is different from other laser treatments because of its PressureWave™ technology. This unique wavelength of light, in combination with a special lens, converts laser energy into pressure. The gentle pressure activates skin cells to produce new collagen and elastin — the components found naturally in younger skin.

PicoSure’s unique wavelength doesn’t damage your skin, so you get brighter, healthier, tighter skin without downtime. It’s an ideal antiaging treatment for men and women who want to improve the appearance of their skin and feel more confident overall.

What skin conditions can the PicoSure laser treat?

PicoSure’s advanced laser technology revitalizes your skin and reduces the appearance of:

  • Acne scars
  • Darker pigmentation and lesions
  • Fine lines and wrinkles

PicoSure laser treatments have skin-tightening benefits since they promote the growth of new collagen and elastin. Over time, your skin will have a firmer, smoother appearance as a result of these rejuvenated skin cells. 

PicoSure works well with other skin rejuvenation methods, too, and can become part of a beneficial skin care plan.

What can I expect with a PicoSure treatment?

When you come to Concierge Wellness Center for a PicoSure laser treatment, you can expect a quick, simple laser procedure that lasts just 10-15 minutes. Discomfort is minimal, as most people compare the laser to the snapping of a rubber band. 

If you’re concerned about discomfort, you can request a numbing cream before your doctor begins the procedure.

Your provider at Concierge Wellness Center can target your acne scars and areas of darker pigmentation, or they can treat your whole face so you receive the maximum skin-tightening benefits. 

Immediately following the treatment, your skin will be red, as if you have a mild sunburn. The redness usually goes away on its own within 24 hours.

You can wear sunscreen, makeup, or moisturizers immediately following a PicoSure session, since the laser energy goes beneath the surface of your skin without damaging the outer layer. There’s no reason to miss work or other daily activities, which makes PicoSure a convenient skin care treatment that fits into your busy lifestyle.

Depending on your individual case and the laser used, some people are satisfied after only one treatment session. Others may need additional sessions.
