PicoSure Frequently Asked Questions
PicoSure® is the world’s first and only picosecond aesthetic laser platform for multiple aesthetic applications including tattoo removal, acne scar treatment, removal of pigmented lesions and wrinkle treatment. This laser technology gently targets and eliminates pigment without harming the surrounding skin.
It’s important to consider your options. Face-lifts, fillers, and toxins are associated with significant downtime, risks, and side-effects. Patients often consider these treatments a “last resort.” The first step to achieving a more youthful appearance or just tweaking some trouble-spots may be a PicoSure laser treatment.
Melanin gives us our skin color. Pigmented lesions including sunspots, age spots, and brown patches, are dark in color because the melanin is concentrated in one area of the skin. Most pigmented lesions come from sun exposure while some patients are born with them. Hormonal changes can also induce pigment changes in the skin.
Lasers remove a variety of unwanted pigment. Age spots, freckles, and brown patches can all be removed with PicoSure. During a free consultation, your practitioner will put together a treatment regime to help you achieve pigment-free skin fast.
To improve the look of your skin and achieve a more youthful appearance by removing pigmented lesions will require only a few treatments. Darker, deeper and larger pigmented lesions may require additional treatments; however during the consultation, your practitioner will discuss treatment expectations with you.
Most patients find the procedure tolerable and require no numbing cream or anesthesia. PicoSure delivers energy in ultra-short bursts, and patients often compare the laser pulse to a snap of a thin rubber band.
After the procedure, the treatment area may be tender. It is important to keep the area clean and to avoid any irritation. Your practitioner will provided additional after care instructions as needed to ensure a quick recovery.
Dr. Mantha uses a laser to produce the rapid pulses to break up the ink. More precisely, PicoSure’s PressureWave™ technology produces very rapid pulses causing a change in pressure, which breaks apart the tattoo ink into microparticles.
The laser pressure signals cells to communicate and work together to release necessary proteins to speed up healing. The ink removal process is painless, often likened to the feeling of a snap of a rubber band.
Once the ink has been broken down, your body absorbs the tiny, dust-like pieces through your lymphatic system. This component of your immune system filters the ink and eliminate the ink particles through your body’s waste.
PicoSure’s technology is designed to trigger your body’s immune response during the procedure, to prevent discomfort and promote healing. New collagen and elastin are created at a cellular level without any damage or burning to your skin.
Thanks to PicoSure’s technology, tattoo removal is virtually painless and can be done without any special preparation. Many treatments can be done in just minutes and entail minimal to no downtime, unlike other procedures.
