PicoSure is a laser treatment that uses short bursts of energy to target all three layers of photodamaged tissue, epidermal pigment, mid-dermal wrinkles and deep dermal laxity. It activates the cells to form new collagen and elastin without causing damage to the skin. The body’s healing process expels the damaged skin. The PicoSure handpiece is gently moved over the targeted area in a smooth continuous motion. Ultra-fast pulses of light energy are emitted to the skin's surface to cause collagen formation and the rejuvenation and tightening of the skin. This continues for 15-30 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated.
