What is PicoSure Focus Skin Revitalization?

PicoSure Focus Skin Revitalization is a new laser treatment that uses picosecond laser technology to target and eliminate unwanted skin pigments. Like other types of laser treatments, light energy is used to eliminate unwanted pigments. However, picosecond laser technology emits light at a much faster rate than other types of skin lasers. This allows a high amount of energy to be delivered quickly, which reduces heat build up and causes less skin irritation.

Not only that, but the PicoSure Focus Skin laser provides different wavelength options to target different types of pigmentations. For example, the 755 nm wavelength is able to target black, blue, and green tattoo inks, while the 532 nm wavelength targets red, yellow, and orange pigments.

This treatment can be used on the face, chest, hands, and legs. PicoSure Focus Skin Revitalization is effective for treating a variety of pigmentation concerns, including:

  • Scars
  • Age spots
  • Sun spots
  • Melasma
  • Freckles/brown spots
  • Unwanted tattoos
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation

What to Expect During Treatment?

Prior to treatment, a topical numbing cream will be applied to the area being treated. Once the area is numb, the laser handpiece will be passed over the skin multiple times. Depending on the size of the treatment area and your individual goals, each session may last anywhere from 15 minutes to an hour. In most cases, you can expect to have three treatments spaced four weeks apart.

After treatment, the area may be red and swollen. However, this is normal and usually resolves within a few hours. It is important to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen daily during the recovery process. There is no downtime associated with this procedure and you can immediately go back to wearing makeup and your normal skincare routine.

What Are the Potential Side Effects?

PicoSure Focus Skin Revitalization is a safe and effective treatment with minimal side effects. The most common side effects include temporary redness, swelling, and discomfort. These side effects typically resolve within a few hours to a few days.

In rare cases, more serious side effects may occur, such as blistering, crusting, or scarring. However, these side effects are rare and typically only occur when the treatment is not performed by a trained and experienced professional. This is why it is important to select an experienced technician.
