PicoSure

PicoSure is an advanced laser modality which can be used to effectively treat multiple skin concerns – including enlarged pores. Our experienced Skinnotion nurses utilise a combination of three wavelengths to improve the overall texture and appearance of the skin, treat acne scars, remove pigmented lesions, and reduce common signs of skin ageing such as lines and wrinkles.

How does PicoSure Work?

PicoSure delivers a targeted photomechanical response to the skin. This has positive impacts on a number of levels. When it comes to enlarged pores, Picosure tackles these from the inside out. As we age, our dermis becomes thinner, and the collagen and elastin fibres which give us support and structure slowly decline. As the skin becomes thinner and more stretched, pores also appear larger. PicoSure laser energy stimulates the production of elastin and collagen fibres, which not only reduce wrinkles by reintroducing plumpness and volume to the dermis, but reduce the appearance of enlarged pores by plumping and stretching the skin from within.

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 shatters pigmentation and produces collagen without the heat lingering, minimising damage to the surrounding tissue.

What Can I Expect During PicoSure Treatments?

Most treatment sessions last around 30 minutes. Depending on your skin type, multiple sessions may be required to achieve noticeable, lasting results. While laser treatments can help to minimise the look of pores, it should be noted that they cannot completely remove them. 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 freckles, brown spots, fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture and clarity, 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. 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.
