Acne scars can play havoc with your confidence and self-esteem. Unlike other types of facial skin problems, acne scars cannot be concealed by makeup. It is because the scar is dented or raised to a large extent. However, there is a relief for all who battle this problem.

PicoSure laser treatment is an effective treatment with minimal discomfort that can transform your skin. Let’s dig deeper.


Understanding PicoSure Acne Laser Treatment


It is a groundbreaking innovation, which is the world’s first laser used for an aesthetic treatment, using the picosecond technology. For the uninitiated, picosecond laser belongs to a group of ultrafast lasers which emit optical pulses within a trillionth of a second.

The laser treatment incorporates laser with 755 nm which is capable of breaking down the pigments of tattoos and hyperpigmentation.

However, the addition of Diffractive Lens Array or DLA optic into the treatment makes PicoSure very effective in the treatment of acne scars.

The treatment is delivered via a lens developed specifically to treat acne scars and textured skin. It is called the Focus Lens Array. This hexagonal lens delivers concentrated energy up to 20x times more powerful than a standard lens into targeted spots.

When this concentrated energy hits the acne scars, it induces a process called Laser Induced Optical Breakdown. It is nothing but inducing micro-injuries in the skin which triggers the skin to start a healing process. As a result, the skin will undergo accelerated rejuvenation, and increase the production of elastin and collagen, which improves the appearance of acne scars.

Unlike other laser treatments where there is a marked downtime, PicoSure laser has minimal downtime and noticeable results, which is none the very least treatment reasons why it is gaining momentum.


Benefits of PicoSure Acne Laser Treatment


This laser treatment has a multitude of benefits associated with it. The skin benefits of PicoSure laser treatment include:


1. Acne scars


PicoSure has now become the gold standard of treating acne scars. The reason why it is so effective in treating acne scars is that it works double-fold.

Concentrated energy penetrates the epidermis and generates small areas of thermal micro-injuries. This phenomenon, combined with picosecond technology, breaks down the scar tissue and accelerates the healing process in the skin.


2. Hyperpigmentation


Many people have a problem with hyperpigmentation, melasma and age spots. These dark spots or patches on the skin are notoriously hard to remove.

However, PicoSure is one easy way to fix the stubborn brown pigments. Its advanced technology targets the melanin, which is primarily responsible for hyperpigmentation.


3. Tattoo removal


PicoSure laser we use at our Med spa is a 755 nm wavelength. It targets green, blue as well as black pigments in the tattoos which makes it very effective in removing them.

Depending on the size of the tattoos, the treatments can be customized to maximize the results. It is now the most preferred tattoo removal treatment over Q-Switched, a laser which was popular until a few years ago.


4. Fine lines and wrinkles


Customized laser emitted into the skin stimulates the production of collagen and elastin which are responsible for plump skin appearance. This can be experienced as a pleasant side effect of an acne scar treatment or tattoo removal.

However, PicoSure laser can also be used as a separate treatment for skin rejuvenation as well.


Bottom line


This revolutionary laser treatment has diverse and effective benefits. It is also very safe, with minimal to no side-effects. If you have such skin problems as hyperpigmentation, textured skin, wrinkles, tattoos you want to remove or acne scarring, PicoSure laser is the perfect treatment for you.
