PicoSure Laser Q & A

What is the PicoSure laser?

PicoSure is a rapid pulse laser that deploys short, concentrated bursts of energy deep into your damaged skin cells. The laser gets its name because each pulse lasts one picosecond, which is one-trillionth of a second.

The rapid pulses of heat overtake damage in your cells, trigger your body’s innate healing and tissue repair, and activate collagen production. As the PicoSure laser vibrates through your cells, ink from tattoos disintegrates, and skin blemishes like wrinkles and lines smooth out.

What can the PicoSure laser treat?

With PicoSure, Dr. Scott and her skilled team use a variety of attachments and various laser wavelengths to treat a number of different skin issues, such as:

  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Stretch marks
  • Sun spots
  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines
  • Pigment conditions

PicoSure is also the go-to laser for tattoo removal because the bursts of elevated heat break up deep ink particles without damaging the nearby tissue. Over time, your body naturally eliminates the microscopic portions of ink through your lymphatic system.

What if my tattoo is dark or has a lot of ink colors?

PicoSure was specifically designed for tattoos with multiple bright colors and dark lines. Even if your tattoo is large or has stubborn colors, PicoSure successfully eliminates hard-to-remove tattoos.

What parts of my body can the PicoSure laser treat?

The skin rejuvenation benefits of PicoSure laser work best on your:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Legs
  • Buttocks

It’s best to speak to Dr. Scott about your specific area of concern. The team at Lori Scott Family Care offers a variety of anti-aging and skin revitalization options for a range of skin conditions.

How long does it take to get a PicoSure treatment?

That’s one of the best parts of treatment with PicoSure. Because laser technology delivers its benefits so rapidly, you can be in and out of the office in about 30 minutes.

What can I expect after a PicoSure laser treatment?

Whether you’re resurfacing your skin, treating wrinkles, eliminating sun spots, or removing an unwanted tattoo, your skin will be red and sensitive for a few hours. You may even experience some slight swelling in the location, but the sensation is temporary and won’t keep you from your daily normal activities for an extended period of time.
