Women hitting their prime years, often dream of having flawless skin, that’s free from blemishes, brown spots and wrinkles. To achieve such perfect skin, they undergo various procedures and treatments, both natural and medical; that promise instant results but cause a big dent in their wallet. For this sole reason, such procedures and treatments have always been available for only a select few.

PicoSure by Cynosure

But now, you won’t have to break the bank to get flawless and even skin tone, with the arrival of this aesthetic laser. Developed initially for tattoo removal, the newer and advanced techniques by PicoSure help with skin rejuvenation as well.

In addition to that, the PicoSure Laser Treatment is known to be less painful and can remove unsightly skin blemishes such as acne scars, dark spots, melasma, uneven or hyper-pigmentation etc, in fewer treatments as compared to earlier laser technologies. Clinical research shows that the technology can also help with skin discoloration and ageing in general.

Who Is It For?

People with all skin types can make use of this technology, although darker skin tones require a more delicate and strongly targeted delivery of the laser energy. Consult with Dr. Kole when deciding the strategy to be used, according to your skin type.

What Will The Treatment Feel Like?  

Only minor discomfort is felt with PicoSure treatments, as the laser energy doesn’t take too long to show results. This procedure is done at the office and takes only 15 to 20 minutes. People, who have undergone PicoSure, compare the discomfort to be the same as a rubber band snapping against the skin.

Immediately after the treatment, you may feel the sensation of mild sunburn on the area which is virtually painless, unless rubbed against.

How Long Does One Treatment Take?

This largely depends on the size and type of the area being treated. For instance, removing darks spots from the hand will be far quicker than on the face or any other area with a large concentration of said blemish.

What Are The Expected Results after The PicoSure treatment?

When it comes to the treatment for pigmented skin lesions, acne scars, uneven skin tones, dark spots and melisma, etc, PicoSure promises  significant removal or decrease in the above. This automatically results in giving you a more youthful and even complexion.

Of course, the extent of improvement and recovery time also depends according to the area being treated.

What Is The Recommended Course For Maximum Results?

The treatment will run its due course with the sunburn sensation diminishing completely in about an hour, depending on the area that is being treated and what the treatment is for. Acne scar treatment requires more laser energy than melisma for example. The results are typically seen at about one week after the treatment and improves after each treatment.  Typically, treatments are performed one month apart and for optimum results, three or four treatments are usually required.

Where Should You Go For This Treatment?

A board certified plastic surgeon is your ideal choice to go to, specifically the professional who has specialization with the PicoSure laser procedure.  Try to avoid centers where they delegate the procedures to technicians.
