11 Jan Skin Rejuvenation and Revitalization with PicoSure
There is nothing like a weekend to rejuvenate the soul. Children have returned to their appointed realms, the trappings of Christmas have been packed away for another 11 months, dinner and the philharmonic have been savored with good friends, and I, like so many, hope to greet the week with renewed energy and fresh perspective.
Two weeks ago I wrote about the groundbreaking capabilities of the PicoSure laser in tattoo modification and removal. Today I want to tell you about PicoSure’s equally revolutionary role in the world of skin revitalization and rejuvenation.
The PicoSure laser has a special lens called the Focus Lens Array that magnifies the laser’s ultra-short pulses (one trillionth of a second burst) 20 times. The magnification by the Focus Lens Array results in a laser-induced optical breakdown of the energy as it hits the skin. The depth of penetration of light energy is precisely controlled with 10% of the energy being delivered at high levels and 90% of the energy from any given pulse being delivered at lower levels. The result is deeper penetration of laser energy and more gentle diffusion of background energy resulting in less thermal damage to surrounding tissue.
Simply put, this highly efficient delivery of ultra-short pulses of light generates plump new collagen and elastin fibers more safely, efficiently, and comfortably than ever before. Your skin will look fresher and healthier than ever with few to no side effects and virtually no down time.
Many technologies boast reduced or minimum down times. Treatment with PicoSure Focus Lens Array truly redefines the concept of no down time. The redness that develops with treatment vanishes within 1 or 2 hours. A sensation (but, not the appearance) of mild windburn can persist for 24-36 hours.
No residual swelling. No redness. No peeling.
I had one patient who doubted these claims. But, she stopped halfway on her return trip from Oklahoma City to Enid to send a selfie showing complete resolution of what had been a very bright and diffuse telltale redness 45 minutes before!
A series of 3 to 4 treatments spaced 2 to 4 weeks apart results in significant improvement in texture of the skin, evening of pigment irregularities, and smoothing of lines and wrinkles, as well as improvement of sun-damage so commonly seen in Oklahoma. The skin looks healthier and more youthful. The results usually surpass those attained with other non-ablative resurfacing techniques. In addition to facial rejuvenation any cutaneous surface can be treated including neck, chest (décolleté), and hands.
With the award winning PicoSure Focus Lens Array revitalized, younger and healthier looking skin can be yours with fewer numbers of treatment and an outstanding safety profile. Visible improvement is seen after one treatment. Focus Lens Array offers gentler treatments with greater comfort than any other modality in the marketplace. Come in and let us help you put your very best face forward!
