How it works
The PicoSure™ is a light based treatment that targets all three layers of photodamaged tissue, epidermal pigment, mid-dermal wrinkles, and deep dermal laxity with PressureWave™ technology. This pressure squeezes the cells, activating the natural cell signalling process to create new collagen and elastin without burning or damaging the skin. The body’s natural healing process expels the damaged skin and encourages the production of fresh, new collagen and elastin.
What to expect
Your visit to Vancouver Laser & Skin Care Centre for the PicoSure™ treatment will take under 40 minutes.
The result scale is dependant on the level of damage to the skin. Typically the skin appears refreshed within 1 week; however, the rejuvenation process can take up to 2 months.
Several treatments spaced 2 – 4 weeks apart are recommended for optimal results.
- Whitening of the scarred area that will flake off
- Temporary swelling
- Temporary redness
- Temporary darkening of the pigment
Post treatment care
- Avoid sun exposure and wear a sunscreen with an SPF 50 on the treated area
