Photo Rejuvenation

Picosure Focus - Revitalize Your Skin

Exposure to UV rays can wreak havoc on your skin. This can lead to an acceleration of the aging process, causing the appearance of brown patches, age spots, unwanted freckles and other pigmentations. Fortunately there is an effective laser treatment that can eliminate these types of pigmentations should they bother you. London Laser Skin Care is proud  to offer PicoSure™, an advanced laser technology that helps to rejuvenate and revitalize the skin by erasing unwanted pigmentation.

What does it do?

PicoSure’s unique energy delivery is a breakthrough for patients’ seeking a way to improve their skin and reduce signs of aging but who don’t want to deal with the risks, pain and downtime of traditional laser treatments. Using highly targeted energy, PicoSure gently disrupts the particles responsible for a range of pigment conditions like freckles, sunspots and other discoloration. But there’s more. With the revolutionary Focus lens, PicoSure harnesses the latest breakthroughs in medical science to improve wrinkles, age lines and even acne scars. Unlike other lasers with similar results, PicoSure doesn’t rely on heat to burn away and destroy skin to force the body to heal.

How Does It Work?

Your body already has what it takes to help you look and feel younger.
Let PicoSure put it to work for you.

Recent discoveries have begun to reveal the secret language of the body and how cells talk to each other to keep us healthy. Known as cell signaling, this biological communication occurs when cells are injured and release proteins, which are then detected by surrounding cells to trigger a healing response. PicoSure’s PressureWave™ technology uses a unique wavelength of light (755nm) and a specialized lens to convert laser energy into gentle pressure. This pressure squeezes cells, activating the natural cell signaling processes that create new collagen and elastin without burning or damaging the skin.

What Should I Expect?

Other lasers promise to treat wrinkles, acne scars and blemishes. But only PicoSure and its PressureWave technology can deliver impressive results without the inconvenience, pain and downtime of other procedures.

With PicoSure, there’s no special prep and procedures typically take about 10-15 minutes. Most people experience no pain and describe treatments as feeling like the snapping of a rubber band, but we also offer numbing cream and use a Zimmer cryo machine to minimize any possible discomfort.

Sun damage and the natural aging process can cause many aesthetic issues, including skin laxity, pigmentation issues, wrinkles, and scarring. However, not everyone is willing to undergo an invasive procedure to remedy these concerns. PicoSure® Focus™ utilizes focused laser energy to target three different layers of the skin and improve the production of collagen and elastin. Patients can achieve results that are similar to those of a laser resurfacing procedure without discomfort or downtime.

Benefits

  • Create Collagen
  • Create Elasticity
  • Skin Tightening
  • No downtime or discomfort
  • Non-evasive

Ideal Candidates

Candidates for treatment with PicoSure® Focus™ are non-smokers in good health. Patients wish to treat certain aesthetic concerns without an invasive procedure (like microneedling). Issues that can be corrected with PicoSure® Focus™ include the following:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Hyperpigmentation (dark spots caused by age or sun damage)
  • Loose skin

Procedure

Your skin will first be cleansed to remove oil and dirt. A topical anesthetic can then be applied if desired, but this step is not always necessary. The handpiece will then be passed over the target site, and the laser energy will be absorbed by the skin. This process penetrates three different layers of the skin to treat several cosmetic issues. You may feel a warm sensation as the light energy is absorbed by your skin, but a cooling device will be used during your session for additional comfort.

Recovery and Results

There is no downtime necessary after your PicoSure® Focus™ treatment. Some patients have reported slight swelling or redness afterward, but these typically resolve within an hour or two. 

You may begin to see some effects after your first session, but most patients need two to three sessions for optimal results. Laser treatment also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which can take a few weeks to become apparent. Patients will see skin that is smoother, softer, and more youthful once they have completed the recommended series of treatments.

Remove Dark Spots with FDA-Cleared Elite MPX™

How Does Laser Brown Spot Removal Work?

Topical creams only lighten dark spots on the surface of the skin, while Elite MPX laser light beams reach into the dermis to achieve fantastic results. Using dark spot removal technology, the Elite MPX is able to safely penetrate the deepest layers of the skin to eliminate excess melanin. Laser brown spot removal fades even the darkest birthmarks without damaging the surrounding skin. After a few sessions, dark spots will fade to reveal clear and flawless skin on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and legs.

What to Expect During Dark Spot Removal

Depending on their darkness and size, most brown spots will require multiple sessions to be removed. About once a month, short 15-20 minutes sessions are scheduled until your dark spots disappear. Laser brown spot removal is not painful and most people do not usually require anesthetic. Patients often compare the laser pulse to the snap of a thin rubber band. Most people can resume their normal activities following in-office treatments without experiencing any major side effects. Some redness and minor swelling is common, but will resolve rapidly.

If dark spots are clouding your complexion, consider laser dark spot removal with the Elite MPX. Call London Laser today to schedule a consultation
