Getting your acne under control can be overwhelming in and of itself. However, once you hit that milestone, after the initial relief of becoming acne-free, many people deal with visible scarring from their years spent fighting blemishes.
The presence of these scars can be frustrating and disheartening for even the most confident of people. Luckily, there’s PicoSure. The laser resurfacing device is the perfect solution for unwanted acne scars. Leave your skin looking and feeling clean and clear: Acne scars don’t stand a chance.
How Does It Work?
PicoSure is a non-surgical laser procedure that works by gently delivering short bursts of energy to the target area to break down unwanted pigment. While traditional lasers rely on heat, the PicoSure relies on ultra-short pulses of energy that are delivered to the skin in trillionths of a second.
The lack of heat directly means less skin damage, so that you can continue to have healthy, happy, skin. For practicality purposes, this means less redness, less pain, and less downtime following the procedure. The lack of harsh chemicals and intense damage associated with heat-based treatments makes this a great option for those with sensitive skin.
Still, this high-energy approach has all the benefits of traditional heated-laser therapy: Through selective cell destruction, PicoSure is able to trigger and promote elastin and collagen creation. This results in firmer, tighter, smoother skin.
Additionally, PicoSure’s hyper-targeting means that the surrounding skin is not impacted — so we can focus on repairing only the skin that needs it, meaning only your acne scars will be treated.. However, unlike other traditional lasers the Focus can be used on various body parts like the neck, décolleté, back, and legs. For those with acne scarring on their back and chest, this means you can find relief too.
What Is the Treatment Like?
One PicoSure Focus session takes only ten minutes, and with no downtime, you’ll be able to put on makeup immediately afterward and resume outdoor activities the following day — just be sure to apply plenty of SPF.
It’s also important to note that it may take a few sessions to see desired results. Your treatment plan will be tailored to your specific skin as no two bodies are alike.
What Else Does It Treat?
While getting relief from acne scarring can be life changing in and of itself, PicoSure Focus also treats other skin conditions:
- Brown spots
- Pigmented lesions
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Sun damage
- Stretch marks
During the month of April, when you purchase three PicoSure treatments, you’ll get one free! Eliminate your scars once and for all. Summer is right around the corner — now is the time to invest in yourself and feel comfortable in your skin: You deserve it.
