Old unwanted tattoos, stubborn acne scars, and pigmented lesions don’t have to follow you through the rest of your life. With CynoSure PicoSure laser treatment at Advanced Life Clinic in Huntsville, Alabama, you can safely and permanently remove unwanted tattoos, bodily marks, and scars. What is CynoSure PicoSure and how does it work? Is treatment safe and effective? We’re here to address your most pressing questions concerning this innovative and effective laser skin treatment.
What Is the CynoSure PicoSure Laser Treatment?
CynoSure PicoSure is a non-surgical, non-invasive laser-based skin treatment used to improve the skin’s appearance. Treatment is used to remove unwanted tattoos as well as diminish the appearance of acne scars, pigmented lesions, and wrinkles. PicoSure gently targets problem regions, eliminating pigmented areas without harming the surrounding parts of the skin.
How Does PicoSure Work?
The CynoSure PicoSure treatment is administered through the PicoSure laser, which targets unwanted marks on the skin at three wavelengths. Because the laser works at three different strengths, it is able to treat a wide variety of pigmentary conditions.
The treatment creates a concentrated photothermal impact on the skin in trillionths of a second, sparing the skin high thermal damage and directly targeting the skin’s chromosphere. Treatment also optimally targets melanin and darkened areas of the skin, effectively treating various pigmentary conditions. This results in better and clearer results in fewer treatments.
How Is Skin Improved With PicoSure?
Inside our skin cells, there is a layer of newer and clearer skin that’s ready to come out. Focus laser treatments such as PicoSure activate the body’s natural skin renewal processes to reveal this healthier layer of skin. Treatments lighten unwanted pigment by stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin and essentially revealing the newer and clearer skin that’s just waiting below the surface.
Is CynoSure PicoSure Safe and Effective?
Treatment with CynoSure PicoSure is clinically proven and validated to be effective and safe. Because PicoSure laser treatment is non-surgical and non-invasive, there is no downtime or extended recovery time between sessions. Treatment can be effectively administered within a short span of time and desired results are quickly realized.
Due to PicoSure’s incredibly fast laser pulses which are emitted at trillionths of a second, the amount of heat transferred is minimized. Less heat transferred means that less damage is done to the surrounding skin. This results in less risk of injury.
How Many Treatment Sessions are Needed?
Treatment will vary depending on the individual skin condition and reaction of the patient. For unwanted tattoo removal, the size, location, and ink density of the targeted tattoo significantly impact how quickly results can be achieved. Generally speaking, 4-10 sessions are needed for the removal of the common tattoo.
Skin revitalization treatments for other conditions such as acne scar and dark spot removal is also dependent on the specific skin condition being addressed. Many patients notice an improvement in their condition with 2-5 treatments. Our treatment providers prescribe personalized treatment plans to help each patient realize optimal results as quickly and safely as possible.
How Long Do Results Last?
Tattoo removal and skin clarification treatments are permanent with PicoSure. Some patients do find that focused follow-up treatments every six months help to prevent the gradual accumulation of pigment over time. Follow-up treatments can also help to slow the appearance of wrinkles.
Is Treatment Right for Me?
PicoSure is the leading picosecond laser and has been clinically proven to work on patients of all skin types. PicoSure laser treatment is able to address and remove all colors of tattoo ink on patients of all skin types. PicoSure will likely be effective in removing your unwanted tattoos as well! Treatment is also shown to revitalize the skin of patients of all skin types by targeting different skin conditions such as acne scarring and hyperpigmentation.
Before and After the Treatment
Patients are recommended to avoid unnecessary and unprotected sun exposure before and after treatment. Unprotected sun exposure results in the skin being hit with harmful UV radiation. The skin attempts to protect itself against the sun’s radiation by producing melanin and ultimately tanning the skin. PicoSure targets melanin in order to reduce excess pigmentation, so a very heavy tan may negatively affect treatment.
After laser treatment, the skin is more sensitive and vulnerable to natural sunlight. Patients should avoid needless sun exposure in order to protect skin after treatment. When sun exposure can’t be avoided, using a sunscreen of SPF30 or greater is advised.
What Should I Expect From a Treatment Session?
With a PicoSure treatment session, there are no cumbersome pre-treatment preparations. Most procedures typically last from 10 to 15 minutes. Because PicoSure laser treatment doesn’t damage the surface of the skin, moisturizers, makeup, and sunscreens can be applied immediately after a treatment session.
With the convenience of PicoSure, patients don’t need to miss work or family activities after treatment sessions. Since there is no downtime or extensive recovery period most patients are able to get back into their usual routine within a couple of hours. Treatment sessions are quick, gentle, and non-disruptive. Patients see real results without putting their lives on hold.
