Laser Skin Revitalization & Rejuvenation
The skin is the largest and most visible organ in the body. The skin acts as a protective barrier that repairs and renews itself.
As we age, the skin slows down its renewal process. It reduces its production of elastin and collagen, the main structural proteins in the dermis. With less support, the skin can sag due to gravity. Common areas for this to occur are the face, neck, jowls, upper arms and the abdomen. Photoaged skin becomes lined and wrinkled, thicker, leathery, pigmented, and sometimes blemished.
What can we do to turn back the clock on skin laxity and photoaged skin? What can we do to reverse the years of damage-look younger and have healthier skin?
When aging is not an option–the answer is…
The Cynosure PicoSure Laser– The Cynosure PicoSure Laser is an unparalleled innovation in laser technology. In the past lasers have relied on intense heat energy. The PicoSure delivers ultra short bursts of energy (Pressure Waves) to the skin in trillionths of a second. The power of its Focus Lens Array is unprecedented. The Focus Lens Array is comprised of hundreds of micro lenses per square centimeter which redistribute the PicoSure pulse into highly concentrated beams of energy that were never before possible. This results in gentler yet greater disruption of the target for better results with fewer treatments, less fluence, and without injury to the surrounding skin. In addition, there is little discomfort and no down time. Patients appreciate the fast treatments, allowing them to return quickly to regular activities.
PicoSure has multiple treatment applications:
- Dramatic Skin Rejuvenation/Revitalization on the Face, Neck, Hands, Arms, Chest
- Reduction or Elimination of Fine to Moderate Lines and Wrinkles
- Elimination of Pigmented Lesions – Brown Spots, Sun Spots. Age Spots – Melasma
- Smoothes Acne Scars
The PicoSure’s leading edge technologies reach deeply into the skin’s sub-layers (epidermal pigment, mid dermal wrinkles, and deep dermal laxity) treating the support structures. Then the body’s natural healing process sweeps away the older damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh new collagen and elastin. These are the crucial building blocks of youthful looking skin. This results in an increased density of new collagen and thickness of new elastin fibers. This, in turn, produces a reduction or elimination of fine to moderate lines and wrinkles, and pore size shrinkage. The skin will show improvement in texture and tone, have a healthier appearance, as well as a more youthful, smoother look.
A series of 4 treatments is recommended for optimal results at 1 month intervals. Side effects are few – temporary redness and swelling that typically resolves in less than an hour. In some cases the redness may last for 24 hours.
In addition, The PicoSure Laser is Very Successful in treating and improving Acne Scars. Treatment for Acne Scars will begin to show refinement and smoothness in 2 treatments but a series of 3-5 treatments is recommended for optimum results.
