PicoSure Rejuvenation in Charlotte

Medically reviewed by Dr. Richard Paul Greenberg on 4/25/24

Whether you want to smooth stubborn acne scars or reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, PicoSure skin rejuvenation can help you look and feel your very best. It can be used safely for people of color.

Approved by the FDA, this anti-aging laser treatment uses picosecond pulses of energy. A picosecond is one trillionth of a second, which is an incredibly short burst of energy. This rapid delivery allows for precise targeting of specific skin concerns, such as stretch marks and unwanted pigmentation, without damaging the surrounding tissue.

Even better, PicoSure offers immediate results with minimal downtime. That means your skin will be brighter and more beautiful after a single treatment.

Benefits of PicoSure Rejuvenation

PicoSure laser skin rejuvenation is a quick and effective means of obtaining a radiant, youthful glow. It can be safely used in people of color. Key benefits include:

  • Improved Skin Texture: PicoSure stimulates the production of vital proteins called collagen and elastin. Stimulating the production of these proteins can help smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, erase acne scars, and improve the texture of your skin.
  • Reduced Pigmentation: This anti-aging laser treatment effectively targets and reduces pigmentation irregularities, such as sunspots, age spots, and freckles.
  • Immediate, Progressive Results: Thanks to its advanced technology, a PicoSure laser facial can address skin concerns in a single session. These immediate results continue to improve as the stimulated collagen and elastin fibers develop in the weeks following treatment.
  • Minimal Downtime: Because PicoSure is a non-surgical procedure, and the pulse duration is so brief, downtime is minimal. Patients typically return to their regular activities immediately following treatment.
  • FDA-Approved: After undergoing rigorous clinical trials, PicoSure laser skin rejuvenation has met the strict standards established by the FDA. That means you can feel confident that PicoSure is a safe and effective option for achieving a bright, youthful complexion.

PicoSure Rejuvenation for Specific Concerns

PicoSure laser facials can help you address several skin conditions and concerns, including:

PicoSure for facial wrinkles

From crow’s feet to smile lines to forehead creases, facial wrinkles can leave you feeling insecure. Thankfully, PicoSure uses ​​advanced picosecond technology to stimulate collagen and elastin production. This softens the appearance of bothersome lines and stubborn wrinkles and gives you the confidence boost you’re after.

PicoSure for acne scars

The PicoSure laser facial is an FDA-approved treatment for acne scars. This safe, effective treatment works by delivering ultra-short pulses of energy to the skin in picoseconds, which helps break down the scar tissue and stimulate collagen and elastin production. As a result, you will see immediate results that last a lifetime.

PicoSure for stretch marks

Stretch marks, also known as striae, are scars that occur when the skin is stretched quickly. This can happen during periods of rapid growth, such as puberty or pregnancy, as well as due to rapid weight gain or loss, hormonal changes, or certain medical conditions. PicoSure treatments reduce the appearance of stretch marks by breaking down scar tissue and stimulating collagen and elastic production.

PicoSure for pigmentation

Sunspots, also known as age spots, are dark, flat patches on the skin caused by excess melanin production. Though usually harmless, these pigmented patches can make you look older than you are. Fortunately, PicoSure is clinically proven to target various pigmentation concerns, including sunspots, freckles, and melasma, while providing a smooth, even skin tone.

If you want to feel more confident in your own skin, discuss PicoSure with a qualified healthcare professional. This non-invasive laser treatment can help you achieve a refreshed and more youthful appearance, boosting your self-esteem with minimal downtime.

What to Expect During PicoSure Rejuvenation Treatment

A PicoSure laser facial is typically a 30-minute procedure, depending on the areas being treated. Here’s what you can expect during the four-step treatment session.

Step 1: Consultation

Before receiving treatment, you will meet with a qualified healthcare professional. During this consultation, you will discuss your skincare concerns, medical history, and aesthetic goals. The healthcare provider will also assess your skin and determine if PicoSure is right for you.

Step 2: Preparation

On the day of your procedure, your healthcare provider will get you comfortable on a procedure table and then gently cleanse the treatment area to remove any makeup, oils, or debris. They will then numb the treatment area with a topical anesthetic to minimize discomfort.

Since the PicoSure laser emits intense flashes of light, you will also be provided with laser safety glasses to wear during the procedure. This eyewear protects your eyes from potential damage caused by the laser beam. Your medical provider will also wear safety glasses.

Step 3: Laser Treatment

During the procedure, your practitioner will use a wand-like device to administer the laser treatment. You may hear a cracking noise and feel a pinching sensation, almost like being snapped by a rubber band. If needed, your provider will use a cooling fan to help reduce any discomfort.

Step 4: Post-Treatment Care

After the PicoSure rejuvenation session is complete, your healthcare provider may apply a soothing gel or moisturizer to the treated area to help calm the skin and alleviate any redness or irritation. They will also provide you with specific post-treatment instructions, including skincare recommendations and sun protection measures.

Depending on your aesthetic goals, your practitioner may schedule follow-up treatments spaced several weeks apart.

Potential side effects

PicoSure rejuvenation is a safe, FDA-approved solution for individuals looking to refresh their appearance. However, like any cosmetic procedure, there are potential side effects. These include:

Depending on your aesthetic goals, your practitioner may schedule follow-up treatments spaced several weeks apart.
