FAQ

Here is the question you might want to ask

1. Is PicoSure safer and more effective for tattoo removal and skin rejuvenation?
Yes is the answer.
PicoSure’s ultra-short pulse duration creates an intense photomechanical impact known as PressureWaveTM that shatters the target into tiny particles easily eliminated by the body. This process results in better clearance with fewer treatments with no injury to the surrounding skin.

2. What does PicoSure feel like?
PicoSure is uncomfortable, but generally well-tolerated. And there is always the option of applying a topical numbing cream or other aids to minimize discomfort.

3. Do I have to avoid the sun after Picosure treatment?
The sun exposes the skin to harmful radiation. To protect itself, the body produces extra melanin, causing the skin to tan. Since PicoSure targets melanin to remove excess pigment, a heavy tan may interfere with treatment. After laser treatments for removal of tattoos and unwanted pigment, the skin is more vulnerable to sunlight, so minimizing sun exposure and use of sunscreen of SPF30+ is recommended.

1. What is the result for tattoo?
Tattoo removal results with the latest PicoSure technology are second to none! Each client’s results will differ slightly, however, with the new and first update in laser tattoo removal technology in 20 years the clearance will be expected to be at least twice as fast as other lasers on the market.

2. How many PicoSure® laser treatments will I need to remove my tattoo?
With the new PicoSure® laser the number of treatments is reduced, however the number of laser tattoo removal treatments will depend on the amount, colour and type of tattoo ink, the depth of tattoo ink into the skin and the method of tattoo application. Professional tattoos may require fewer than six laser treatments, while self-applied tattoos may fade after only two PicoSure® laser tattoo removal treatments. Tattoo removal treatments are conducted at 6-8 weekly intervals.

3. Does PicoSure® laser tattoo removal leave a scar?
The vast majority of patients treated by laser tattoo removal have not developed any scarring. However it is impossible to guarantee that no scarring will occur given the enormous differences between individuals.

4. What is different between PicoSure and traditional laser devices?
Traditional nanosecond lasers predominately rely on photo thermal action, delivering heat to the pigment and surrounding tissue.
PicoSure is being introduced as the first safe and effective picosecond aesthetic laser specifically designed to treat tattoos and pigmented lesions. This innovative 755 nm alexandrite laser delivers ultra-short pulse bursts of energy to the skin in trillionths of a second. Picosecond lasers enable significant photomechanical stresses rather than photo thermal action to damage the targets. In addition, nanosecond lasers may only produce a small fraction of the power generated by a picosecond laser.

1. How does it work?
Pulses of laser light go into the skin’s sub-layers, treating the aging support structure. Then the body’s natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin—the crucial building blocks of smooth, youthful appearing skin.

2. How long does it take?
The treatment can be performed in as little as 20-30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area.

3. Does it hurt?
We offer ways to make this a comfortable experience. Since everyone is different, and this depends on the level of treatment needed, it is best to discuss with our doctors or nurses who provide the treatment.

4. How many treatments will I need?
General speaking, you will normally need 2-3 treatments, but it may only require one treatment depending on your goal.

5. Can it be done on my hands and décolletage?
Skin revitalisation with the Picosure Laser is very effective on both of these areas. We find many of our clientele have sun damage to both their hands and décolletage with sun spots and crepe skin. Skin revitalisation reduces/eliminates sun spots and even though there is no damage to the skin. It breaks down the old collagen and kick starts a healing process which produces new collagen reducing the signs of age and sun damage.

1. How is the Picosure different than other devices used to treat pigmented lesions?
Many offices, spas, and salons use nonselective lasers or devices such as IPL(intense pulsed light) to treat pigmented lesions.  These devices are generally unreliable due to their lack of specificity.  Some offices offer older selective pigmented lesion lasers such as Q switched lasers which may require multiple treatments to fade the lesion and require much longer healing times.  The Picosure laser emits its wavelength of energy 100 times faster than these older lasers so the lesions are removed in fewer treatments, healing time is greatly reduced and the time required to return to a uniform skin colour following treatment is shortened significantly

2. How many treatments will it take to get rid of Freckles?
Freckles using the new PicoSure laser technology can be removed in between 2 – 3 treatments, it varies on the client.

3. Can Melisma be treated?
Melisma can be treated extremely well. The PicoSure is the leading technology for removing pigmentation such as melisma.

1. How does it works?
PicoSure uses short pulses of micro-fine laser light to reach deeply into the skin’s sub-layers, treating the support structure. Then the body’s natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin—the crucial building blocks of normal-looking skin. It’s a fast and simple procedure that’s easy to tolerate and requires little-to-no downtime.

2. How many acne scar PicoSure laser treatment will I require?
Acne scar laser treatment with the new PicoSure has had astonishing results with reducing and completely erasing acne scars in as little as 2 – 4 treatments.

3. Can acne scars be treated whilst active?

How many phases are there in hair growth?

Human hair naturally grows in three phases: anagen, catagen, and telogen. Anagen is the active or growing phase. Catagen is a fairly short phase of the natural hair cycle during which hairs begin to break down. Telogen is the resting phase. The hairs that are shed daily are often in the resting or late phase in the hair cycle.

1. What is thread lift?

A thread lift is a minimally invasive cosmetic enhancement technique that lifts sagging skin on the face and neck using surgical suture threads. It helps to contour, tighten and rejuvenate your face – without the upheaval of a full facelift.

It is common to combine a thread lift with other non-invasive procedures such as dermal filler and Botox injections, laser treatments that help improve skin texture and the contours of the face.

2. How does thread lift work?

Thread lift uses threads with bidirectional cones. The cones anchor the subcutaneous fat, and pull the skin up. Hence, patients enjoy a minimally invasive facelift without the need for face-lifting surgery.

3. Who are suitable candidates for thread lift?

Silhouette Soft Thread Lift is suitable for men and women above 30 who want to achieve immediate lifting of the face without undergoing surgery. This treatment is also suitable for people who want to effectively combat signs of aging and want to get a natural result with minimal downtime. For many, Thread Lift gives a better result than fillers – that is because it lifts skin back to its original position rather than adding more volume. This gives a true age-reversing effect.

4. What can be achieved with thread lift for two anti-aging effects?

1. Immediate lifting can be seen once the threads are inserted
2. Regenerative action for gradual, long-lasting, natural results. This occurs via collagen stimulation to restore loss volume and shapeliness to the face, and happens over the next 3-6 months after treatment.

5. What are the side-effects and risk?

Redness, swelling, bruising and so on, it is normal and will gradually resolve around two weeks.

6. How long does it last?

Normally it lasts 18 months.

What is different between Botox and Dermal Fillers?

Botox is a neurotoxin with blocks the action of nerves on muscles.  It relaxes the muscles, softening the wrinkle.  We use it to target muscles that form wrinkles.  It lasts for 6 months. Fillers represent a wide spectrum of products that are used to enhance facial volume. Fillers are injected into the skin to fill in wrinkles, directly softening them.

1. What is PRP injection?

PRP stands for platelet rich plasma, a small amount of blood is taken from a vein in the arm, the PRP component is concentrated and extracted. Then the PRP is injected into the skin for skin revitalization.

2. How PRP works?

PRP is very rich in growth factor and of course has high concentration of platelet. Those factors will trigger skin regrowth and collagen repairmen, give patients youthful looking skin.

3. Is PRP safe?

PRP injection is safest cosmetic treatment, because it uses your own blood which eliminates the risk of infectious diseases and allergy reactions.

4. What else can PRP be useful?

PRP can also be used for the treatments of Tennis Elbow and Arthritis in knees.
