Destroy Unwanted Pigments & Lighten Your Skin
PicoSure for Pigmentation Treatment
PicoSure is approved for the treatment of benign pigmented lesions. These lesions are a result of the cells in the skin producing too much melanin in a localized region, often as a result of sun exposure or aging.
PicoSure is the world’s first aesthetic picosecond laser, widely recognized for its technology leadership, proven performance and industry-leading body of clinical evidence. With features like Boost™ Adjustable Pressure and optional 1064 and 532 nm wavelengths, PicoSure offers the unmatched versatility of all-colour tattoo removal and with a high degree of safety for every patient.
Focus Lens Array
PicoSure* and the breakthrough FOCUS Lens Array are enabling new methods of skin revitalization and revenue expansion opportunities not possible with any other laser platform. Using a unique method of action, Focus concentrates energy to generate laser-induced breakdowns (LIOB) in the epidermis.
These LIOBs cause pressure waves which propagate into the dermis, activating cell signalling and initiating an enhanced inflammatory healing response. This leads to increased collagen and elastin but without thermal injury of other lasers. The patient experiences only a few hours of mild redness but with a few treatments can see pigment, wrinkle and acne scar results similar to ablative technologies.
The Picosure is a major break-through in the treatment of unsightly skin conditions such as acne scarring. Its results have been scientifically shown to be better than any other laser system for treating aesthetic conditions all over the body.
How does the Picosure laser remove unwanted pigments in the skin?
The Picosure laser is the most technologically advanced lasers for removing pigmented lesions.The laser removes these pigments with the energy of light. The specialized light produced by the Picosure laser is absorbed by the pigmented lesion. The unwanted pigment is then destroyed, thus removing or lightening the lesion
What types of brown spots or pigmented lesions will the Picosure remove?
The Picosure laser is the most effective treatment for removing brown age spots, “liver spots”, freckles and other brown birthmarks, such as cafe-au-lait spots and Nevus of Ota. Dr Yang will identify your specific type of lesion and discuss the removal success rate associated with your condition.
Is the process painful?
No, it is generally very well-tolerated. Doctors or our staffs will apply a topical anaesthetic to the area of skin & allow time for it to take effect. During the procedure a cooling unit will be used to make the process more comfortable. The Picosure laser emits light in very short pulses, 100 times faster than Q switched lasers. The impact of the energy from the power pulse of light is similar to the snap of a thin rubber band. After the treatment, the area will feel similar to a light sunburn. Typically any discomfort will disappear by the next day. After the redness clears, the skin returns to its natural colour and texture.
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.
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.
Can Melisma be treated?
Melisma can be treated extremely well. The PicoSure is the leading technology for removing pigmentation such as melisma.
