This is one of the biggest reasons as to why the Asian community and darker skin types are so enamored with the PicoSure. Its reliability and safety with their skin type.

Unlike lasers in the past that relied on intense heat energy which caused pain and led to significant skin redness and downtime, this gentler treatment provides impressive results without the associated discomfort and downtime of traditional lasers.

Picosure is a new generation of lasers and is considered a breakthrough in laser technology! It delivers ultra-short pulse bursts of energy to the skin in trillionths of a second to gently target and eliminate pigment without harming the surrounding skin. PicoSure is designed to activate the body’s natural immune response while minimizing injury and discomfort. Because it uses gentle pressure instead of dangerous, damaging heat there’s no need for a long, painful recovery. In fact, most patients only experience a few hours of mild redness. If you are looking for a treatment which yields dependable results with little to no downtime, you’re looking for Picosure.

Picosure FAQs

What causes unwanted pigment?
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.
How is Picosure Safe For ALL SKIN TYPES?
The PicoSure, much like any other laser, will hit the first target it sees. Based on the patient’s skin type the Pico can be set to target darker pigment. Unlikely a normal laser or IPL; PicoSure is “blind” and capable of treating any of the six Fitzpatrick skin types (1-6). This is because a typical laser is photothermal and in darker skin types the heat present from the laser may lead to hyper or hypopigmentation. The PicoSure is photoacoustic and thus we aren’t as concerned about hyper or hypopigmentation because there is far less heat in the skin during the treatment. Furthermore, the PicoSure’s 755nm wavelength has an incredible blood-to-melanin absorption ratio which means it is capable of destroying more pigmented lesions in a single treatment.
What does the Picosure treatment feel like?
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.
What types of pigmented lesions can PicoSure remove?
Lasers remove a variety of unwanted pigment. Age spots, freckles, and brown patches can all be removed with PicoSure. During a free consultation, we will put together a treatment regime to help you achieve pigment-free skin fast.
