Traditional laser treatments are a lot like the original Macintosh: revolutionary for its time, but a clunker compared to today’s models. As technology has improved, so has laser therapy. Today, you have multiple options to carefully weigh, and we can help with that.
When other, older laser methods and PicoSure’s breakthrough technology go head-to-head, there are many reasons PicoSure wins every time. Here are three:
- It revitalizes your skin in fewer treatments.
PicoSure’s laser will reduce signs of aging — including smoker lines, crow’s feet, and wrinkles — in as little as one treatment. There’s no surgery required, there’s minimal downtime (usually just a few short hours for redness to subside), and each treatment stimulates the production of collagen and elastin and helps to reduce unwanted pigment in your skin – usually 3-4 treatments provide lasting results.
- It reduces the appearance of acne scars without pain.
No pain, lots of gain. Fractional laser treatments tend to hurt and create several days of downtime, but PicoSure can help reduce the appearance of your acne scars with comparable results and less pain. Thanks to technology that creates a photomechanical impact using short bursts of energy, PicoSure is able to refresh damaged skin without harming surrounding healthy skin, making it a very tolerable and convenient treatment for patients. And there are studies to back this up!
- It removes tattoos more efficiently.
PicoSure’s FDA-cleared technology uses short bursts of energy to remove stubborn tattoo ink – including notoriously difficult blues and greens – that other lasers can’t touch. Other lasers heat the ink quickly until it fractures, but PicoSure creates a less thermal photomechanical impact that shatters the ink particles without harming the surrounding skin. These microscopic ink particles are more easily absorbed and eliminated naturally by the body. End result: tattoos can be removed in fewer treatments versus conventional laser technology.
There’s no question about it: With PicoSure, you’ll get better results in less time. It’s a win-win. Find a doctor here.
