If you’re frustrated by the appearance of an old tattoo, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone, and scars on your skin, you may be a good candidate for PicoSure laser treatments at El Paso Cosmetic Surgery in El Paso, TX.
How Does PicoSure Work?
PicoSure is an FDA-approved laser technology that uses focused energy to target and break down pigment within the complexion. The laser light energy focuses on darker pigment against the skin; the pigment absorbs the light, which eventually causes it to break down. Over time and with consistent treatments, the broken-up pigment is reabsorbed by the body, leaving behind a clear and smooth appearance.
Am I a Good Candidate for PicoSure?
You’re a good candidate for PicoSure laser treatments if you have hyperpigmentation – like red or brown spots – and other pigmented lesions. PicoSure works best on candidates with darker pigment against medium-to-light skin tones, although it can be adjusted for most skin tones and types.
How Long Does the Treatment Take?
Your PicoSure treatment will usually take about 30 minutes to an hour to perform, depending on the area that’s being treated. PicoSure can be used on the face, neck, and chest.
What Results Can I Expect?
You may need three to six PicoSure treatments to see your best results. You should expect to see your best results about six to eight weeks after your final PicoSure procedure.
Is There Any Downtime?
There’s no downtime with this procedure; however, you should expect to have red and sensitive skin for the first few days after your treatment. You should wear sunscreen immediately after your PicoSure procedure to protect your sensitive skin against sun damage.
What else does Picosure do?
The PicoSure laser is one of the most effective Tattoo Removal laser on the market.
