PicoSure

Skinnotion is proud to offer PicoSure laser treatments for the effective reduction of new and old scars. PicoSure’s market-leading technology combines multiple laser wavelengths, including 532nm, 755nm, and 1064nm, which can be used to treat multiple skin concerns and conditions. Not only can we reduce face and body scars like acne scarring, injury and post-surgical scars, but can also use PicoSure to reduce pigmented lesions, lines and wrinkles, and skin sagging.

How Does PicoSure Work?

PicoSure delivers a targeted photomechanical response to the skin. This has positive impacts on a number of skin concerns. When it comes to scarring, PicoSure effectively reduces the appearance of multiple scar types, both new and old. The powerful laser energy disrupts and reshapes scar tissue and also smoothes the skin’s texture by boosting collagen induction.

PicoSure vs Traditional
Laser Treatments

PicoSure laser enables non-surgical, non-invasive skin treatment with less discomfort and downtime of traditional laser skin treatments. Traditional lasers can produce intense heat in the tissue, which can induce significant skin redness and downtime. PicoSure combats this by delivering laser energy differently to other modalities. Picosecond laser energy is delivered in powerful, ultra-short pulses, which effectively breaks up scar tissue and also shatters pigmentation like tattoos and sun damage without the heat lingering, minimising damage to the surrounding tissue.

What Can I Expect During PicoSure Acne Scar Removal?

Most treatment sessions last around 30 minutes. Depending on your skin type, multiple sessions may be required to achieve noticeable, lasting results. PicoSure laser is not considered painful, but topical anaesthetic cream can be administered to reduce discomfort if you choose. Typically, you will experience a warm, flicking or snapping sensation as the laser energy is dispersed into the skin.

What Is The Downtime After
PicoSure Treatment?

Compared to traditional non-ablative resurfacing lasers for the treatment of scars, PicoSure is less painful during the treatment and has less associated downtime. Generally, the skin will feel slightly warm and appear pink or red for several hours following your treatment, which usually dissipates by the next day. Some scar tissue can retain heat for some time, but this can vary on the scar type and the individual. You may resume your normal activities right away, ensuring gentle skin products and no intensive exercise for the following 24 hours. It is crucial to apply sun protection, avoid exfoliating agents, and keep skin well hydrated in the 5-7 days following treatment.
