5 Uses for PicoSure® Lasers Other Than Tattoo Removal

5 Uses for PicoSure® Lasers Other Than Tattoo Removal

So many skin treatments out there promise to give you stunning results to address common concerns like wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and scars, but many of them are simply gimmicks. The fact is that you can get the best results with the laser you already know works great for tattoo removal.

Dr. Lori Scott and the team at Lori Scott Family Care offer the cutting-edge PicoSure® laser for tattoo removal and other bothersome skin conditions. Dr. Scott evaluates your skin and determines if the PicoSure laser is the best option for your specific situation.

What is the PicoSure laser?

Dr. Scott uses the PicoSure laser for tattoo removal and other skin conditions on your body simply by adjusting the light’s wavelengths. It’s a great option for smoother skin with a fast treatment time and minimal downtime.

What sets the PicoSure laser apart is that it delivers short, quick bursts of energy to target specific defects in your skin. The energy penetrates the cells and targets only the problem areas in your skin, leaving the surrounding skin safe and unharmed by the laser energy. 

Your body responds to the cell trauma and begins healing your skin from the inside out, promoting new collagen production. The damaged cells pass through your lymphatic system, and healthy new cells take their place.

Five uses for PicoSure lasers beyond tattoo removal

The PicoSure laser is one-of-a-kind for tattoo removal, resulting in nearly clear skin after several treatments. However, tattoo removal is only one of the uses of the PicoSure system. Other uses for this technology include:

1. Wrinkles

Wrinkles are a sign of aging, and while you may have earned them, you might not want to see them. If you're looking for a quick and efficient treatment to get rid of your wrinkles, the PicoSure laser offers significant results after only a few sessions.

2. Fine lines

Fine lines are another aspect of aging you don't have to deal with, thanks to the PicoSure laser. Dr. Scott uses the laser to resurface your skin without the downtime or discomfort of other aesthetic procedures such as chemical peels.

3. Excess pigmentation

If you have age spots, sun spots, freckles, or dark patches of skin, Dr. Scott can use the PicoSure laser to help even out your complexion. After only a few sessions, your hyperpigmentation disappears from the bursts of energy emitted from the PicoSure laser.

4. Acne scars

Acne scars are embarrassing, especially when they cover your face. The laser removes your acne scars with fast bursts of energy that stimulate new cell growth and collagen production to smooth out scarred skin.

5. Stretch marks

Stretch marks can pop up anywhere, making you self-conscious about your skin. Dr. Scott uses the PicoSure laser to increase collagen and elastin production, diminishing the appearance of stretch marks on your body.

Benefits of the PicoSure laser

Whether you're utilizing the PicoSure laser for an unwanted tattoo or unsightly acne scars, this treatment has plenty of benefits over other options. Some of the most significant benefits of the PicoSure laser include:

You may notice some redness or slight swelling right after your procedure, but it should go away within a few hours. The PicoSure laser procedure is quick and is relatively painless, with many people comparing it to a rubber band snapping on your skin.

The results speak for themselves, and Dr. Scott is happy to provide you with this modern technology for smoother, younger-looking skin. To find out how the PicoSure Laser can help you, don't hesitate to call our office at 252-238-7079 or book an appointment online today.
