A revolutionary advance in aesthetics, PicoSure treatments revitalize, restore, and renew skin while gently removing unwanted pigment lesions on décolletage, face, and hands. This groundbreaking system is one of the many advanced anti-aging treatments we offer at our chic, private clinic in Virginia Beach where our patients relax in a luxurious environment.
No one is happy to see dark spots marring the skin on face, décolletage or hands that make you look older than you feel. The PicoSure system activates your body to produce new, healthy, youthful skin to replace damaged or discolored areas.
The benefits of the PicoSure system has made it one of our most popular anti-aging treatments. The many benefits include:
If you are considering an anti-aging treatment, PicoSure may be the perfect answer. This groundbreaking system is one of the latest generation of anti-aging treatments. The system activates your body’s natural immune response, without causing injury or discomfort. Typical side effects are almost nil – minor redness which fades within hours, and results that get better every day.
PicoSure is primarily used to treat signs of aging and to remove tattoos.
When it comes to anti-aging laser treatments, this device can target issues like acne scars, dark spots, and wrinkles. By stimulating the body’s natural healing processes, hyperpigmented lesions are brightened, and the growth of collagen produces a skin tightening effect.
For tattoo removal, it relies on pressure waves to break down ink pigment in the skin. This causes the pigment to break up into much smaller particles, which are then removed by the body’s lymphatic system. Further, because it relies less on ability to heat up ink pigment, the device can even be used to remove more difficult colors, like orange and red, which are typically harder to target with traditional lasers.
PicoSure provides an advanced approach to treatment, delivering dramatic improvements without the inconvenience, downtime, and pain that may be associated with other more invasive anti-aging treatments. The entire treatment requires only about ten to fifteen minutes and is easy to experience.
Nothing is more beautiful than skin that is firm and supple, free from visible flaws, and what better way than to rebuild your skin from within?
For anti-aging treatments, PicoSure side effects may include mild skin redness and inflammation immediately after treatment. Many patients who visit California Skin Institute even get treatment during their lunch breaks, as makeup can be applied to the skin right after.
With tattoo removal, the patient can expect more inflammation and lingering discomfort. This occurs because clusters of ink pigment are broken apart within the skin; a process that can cause micro damage to the surrounding tissues.
The Problem Almost every woman will develop irregular pigmentation on her face after the age of 35 (often sooner). This is a result of hormones, sun, genetics and the environment. With time, this irregular skin coloration will appear on the neck, chest, hands etc.
The Solution The Picosure laser facial is a game changer. This laser fires 1,000 times faster than any other cosmetic laser. This means you can have resurfacing WITH NO DOWNTIME. You can immediately apply makeup and return to work or play. You should plan 3 treatments, each done a month apart. Some women with more damage may benefit from additional treatments.
This laser will stimulate your own collagen and elastin production. Your complexion will be radiant, and your fine lines will be diminished. Even hard to treat acne scarring will be diminished. Unlike most other lasers, this is safe for skin types 1-4, which means as long as your skin is not very dark, you can safely use this laser.
Stop using any active agents on your face 3 days before your treatment.
The treatment is rapid and you just come in 30 minutes before your session to have a numbing cream applied.
We offer medical grade skin care, which can extend the results from your Picosure laser facial treatment.
