What is PicoSure Laser?
PicoSure laser treatment is a skin laser designed to treat various signs of aging, pigmentation (including tattoos!) and acne scars.
How does PicoSure Laser work?
While most laser treatments use heat to destroy the skin’s surface area, PicoSure sends out bursts of lights with picoseconds in intervals – that’s one burst of light in every one trillionth of a second!
The short bursts of light administered through a special lens on the device also reduce the amount of heat delivered to the skin, so that you’re only disturbing the skin cells enough to trigger the repair / healing process.
This is why PicoSure requires fewer sessions to achieve your desired results and also give you a faster recovery time compared to other laser treatments.
