Acne scars are nothing to be ashamed of, but they do have the tendency to negatively impact your confidence and self-esteem. There are two types of acne scarring: atrophic scars and hypertrophic scars. Unlike post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation often left behind by acne, these scars won’t clear up on their own with time and cannot be easily concealed by makeup, as they are usually dented or raised.
Luckily, there is a solution for all who battle this problem. Introducing PicoSure laser, a revolutionary acne scar removal treatment with maximum benefits and minimal discomfort that can transform your skin. Driven by only the most advanced cosmetic technology, this acne laser treatment has become the choice of many skincare experts.
Let’s dig deeper to learn more about the extensive perks of PicoSure.
Understanding PicoSure Acne Laser Treatment
PicoSure is a groundbreaking innovation, which is the world’s first laser used for an aesthetic treatment, using Picosecond technology. This device emits ultrafast laser pulses with durations of less than 1 nanosecond and is typically used in the medical aesthetic industry to target exogenous ink particles (tattoos) and endogenous pigmentation — AKA acne hyperpigmentation and scarring.
The procedure induces micro-injuries onto the skin, which triggers the natural healing process. As a result, the skin will undergo accelerated rejuvenation, and increase the production of elastin and collagen. As a result, you will notice an incredible reduction in the appearance of acne scars.
Unlike other laser treatments where there is a marked downtime, PicoSure laser has minimal downtime and nearly instant results, which is exactly why this aesthetic solution is gaining in popularity among clinic offerings.
Benefits of PicoSure Acne Laser Treatment
PicoSure has now become the gold standard for treating acne scars and hyperpigmentation. The reason why it is so effective in treating acne scars is that it works double-fold: concentrated laser pulses penetrate the epidermis and generate small areas of thermal micro-injuries. This phenomenon, combined with Picosecond technology, breaks down the scar tissue and accelerates the healing process of the skin.
Notable benefits include:
- Non-surgical and non-invasive
- Minimal downtime
- Improved skin texture
- Clearer complexion
- Utilizes the body’s natural healing processes

What is the PicoSure procedure, and how does it work for acne scar removal?
PicoSure laser is a procedure that employs highly concentrated energy onto the affected area of the skin. This results in the gradual removal of damaged skin layers.
It also stimulates the production of collagen, which speeds up skin renewal properties. Consequently, scarred skin dramatically improves in texture, colour, and appearance. Unlike other skin procedures that rely heavily on heat, PicoSure works by triggering the body’s immune system.
Does the procedure hurt?
Picosure comes with mild discomfort that can be further reduced by applying topical anesthesia. You can rest assured that your comfort and safety are our top priorities at Harmony Med Spa.
Are there any side effects of PicoSure?
Redness and swelling are expected, but they should subside within 24 hours. Keep in mind that an inexperienced technician can aggravate the side effects. Always make sure that you are treated by an experienced and trained physician.
Who can benefit from the PicoSure procedure?
The ideal candidate is an individual with facial acne scarring. However, this revolutionary technology also works great for individuals who have the following skin conditions:
- Unwanted freckles
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Stretch marks
How to prepare for the PicoSure procedure?
Unlike other facial procedures where you undergo the treatment immediately, PicoSure requires some preparation before the procedure. Here is what you need to do prior to your session:
- Discuss your health issues with the consulting physician.
- Persistent problems such as cold sores around the mouth and acne breakouts must be disclosed during the consultation.
- Inform your physician If you are taking medication for any illnesses.
- We usually advise our clients to avoid consuming blood clotting medications, such as NSAIDs, a couple of weeks before the PicoSure procedure.
- Refrain from smoking at least two weeks before the scheduled session.
