PicoSure Q & A
What is PicoSure?
PicoSure uses unique technology to dissolve unwanted pigments, such as dark spots and tattoo ink. PicoSure uses short-pulse laser energy to shatter pigment without damaging your surrounding tissue.
As a result of PicoSure treatments, your body naturally initiates a healing process to make your skin look restored and refreshed.
What skin concerns can PicoSure treat?
PicoSure is effective in eliminating unwanted tattoos, and the technology is also effective in evening out irregular skin texture due to acne scars and aging. If you have concerns about irregular pigmentation, such as sun spots or melasma, PicoSure can also be an effective treatment.
Do PicoSure treatments hurt?
PicoSure does cause a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin, however, most patients tolerate the procedure quite well. If your skin is especially sensitive, you may benefit from the addition of a topical numbing cream to ease the discomfort.
What is recovery like following PicoSure treatments?
You need a little time for healing after treatment, and the time necessary varies depending on your treatment. Expect recovery to last:
- For 2-6 weeks after skin resurfacing and revitalizations
- For 2-4 weeks after acne scars and wrinkle reduction
- For 6-8 weeks after tattoo removal
Rest assured that you can do most normal activities during this recovery time. The team at Revital-AZ Medical Spa & Laser Center explains what you should expect according to your treatment protocol.
How many PicoSure sessions will I need to see results?
The exact number of sessions you’ll need depends on your cosmetic goals and how your skin responds to the pulsating laser technology. If you’re removing an unwanted tattoo, you generally need between 4 and 10 sessions. The density of the ink, size of the tattoo, and location of the piece influence your treatment plan.
If you’re coming in for skin revitalization, you usually benefit from 2-5 sessions total.
How long do the results of PicoSure last?
PicoSure is a permanent solution for acne scars and tattoo removal. If you seek PicoSure for skin revitalization and pigmentation treatment, you may need regular sessions. PicoSure can’t stop the aging process, but it sure slows it down.
Maintenance treatments are scheduled about six months apart so you effectively avoid the further accumulation of discoloration and reduce the pace at which wrinkles develop.
