PicoSure Laser Q & A

What is the PicoSure® laser?

PicoSure by CynoSure® is one of the most advanced laser technologies available today. This cutting-edge system uses short-pulse lasers that flash rapidly in ultra-fast trillionths of a second.

These rapid flashes of light energy create less heat than traditional lasers, so PicoSure minimizes the risks of damaging your skin and delicate tissue that surrounds the treatment area.

PicoSure laser technology is extremely powerful — the PicoSure laser, operating at “picosecond” intervals, is highly effective in breaking up pigmentation from acne scars, melasma, hyperpigmentation, and even tattoo ink.

In many cases, after just a few treatment sessions, your scars, age spots, or areas of sun damaged skin are no longer visible.

What does the treatment feel like?

Most men and women experience only mild discomfort, and describe the laser pulses as similar to the snapping of a rubber band against your skin.

Are PicoSure laser treatments safe?

Yes. PicoSure’s incredibly fast laser pulses and light energy wavelengths work together to keep heat to a minimum, using gentle pressure to activate your body’s natural immune response. This means less risk of damage to your skin and less risk of potential injury.

As a result, there’s no long recovery period after a treatment. You may experience mild redness, but it typically goes away in just a few hours.

What conditions does the PicoSure laser treat?

The PicoSure laser is designed to treat a wide variety of skin conditions, including:

  • Hyperpigmentation (dark spots)
  • Melasma (known as the “mask of pregnancy”)
  • Sun spots and age spots
  • Acne scars
  • Freckles
  • Wrinkles

Dr. Hsieh advises you about how PicoSure can help minimize the appearance of skin conditions and concerns you may have. She creates a custom treatment plan for your individual needs for the most effective, long-lasting results.

If acne scars or age spots have been making you feel less confident about your appearance, there’s something you can do about it. PicoSure is a noninvasive, easy way to get rid of skin imperfections so you always look and feel your very best.
