The new PicoSure Laser has recently been added to O’Neill Plastic Surgery’s extensive list of cosmetic procedures! The PicoSure Laser is a high tech laser from the industry-leading Cynosure medical laser treatments manufacturer.
PicoSure uses tried and tested laser technology to clear acne scars, remove tattoos, revitalize skin, reduce wrinkles, and more. Dr. O’Neill and his staff are excited to bring this laser treatment to his patients in The Lowcountry!
*As with any procedure and/or treatment the results may vary.
We are currently booking consultations and appointments for PicoSure Laser procedures. Call 843-881-2130 to discuss your options. Our top PicoSure procedures are:
The new PicoSure laser tattoo removal system makes it easy and quick for you to erase those regretful, unsightly tattoos for good. Dr. O’Neill estimates that an average hand-sized tattoo will be fully cleared within 3 to 4 treatments.
Acne Scar Removal
For people who have suffered from acne and now have scarring because of it, the PicoSure laser can be a dream come true! It can remove those pesky acne scars for good. PicoSure breaks up the cells within the skin under the scars and promotes smooth, supple skin with healing.
For anti-aging laser skin revitalization, the PicoSure Laser tackles wrinkles just as it does acne scars. Small bursts of laser energy are used to break apart wrinkled cells and promote new collagen growth, resulting in smooth, youthful skin.
Brown Spot Removal
Freckles and age spots can also be a source of insecurity for many people. The PicoSure removes brown spots quickly without the pain and recovery time of traditional procedures.
For people with melasma, a permanent solution is often very hard to find. The PicoSure laser’s technology offers a targeted, fast melasma treatment, very similar to the treatment used to remove brown spots. The laser targets the melasma gray-brown patches of skin on the face, arms, and body with its high powered skin resurfacing system.
How Does It Work?
The PicoSure laser can target many areas of the body including the face, neck, back, hands, décolletage, legs, and more.
For Tattoo Removal: The PicoSure laser sends ultra-short pulses of photomechanical heat energy that shatters tattoo ink within the skin. Once the laser breaks apart the ink particles within the skin, the particles can be absorbed naturally in the body, resulting in overall clearance of the tattoo.
For Skin Treatments: PicoSure gently delivers short bursts of photomechanical light energy to target your problem areas without causing harm to the surrounding skin. Photomechanical light causes less cellular damage than traditional skin revitalization laser techniques.
Treatments are very short, lasting only about ten minutes each and are scheduled six to eight weeks apart.
SKIN REJUVENATION LASER TREATMENTS
Our laser skin rejuvenation treatments can give you refreshed, younger looking skin with just a few easy treatments! The resurfacing treatments can improve your skin’s tone and texture with long-lasting results.
LASER SKIN REJUVENATION & RESURFACING
The fractional laser technology breaks down the skin tissue, using microbeams of energy. This laser energy breaks down scarred or aging tissue, which triggers the body’s natural healing process to create new, healthy collagen. Healthy collagen improves the texture, look, and feel of your skin. Target:
- Fine Lines
- Skin Tone
- Skin Texture
- Stretch Marks
Treatments last about 15 to 30 minutes and can be easily scheduled into your busy lifestyle. Our patients may have redness and some mild discomfort, but they are typically able to return to their daily routine almost immediately after treatment.
We also have a new laser, the PicoSure Laser, that can be used to remove tattoos as well as reduce acne scars, brown spots, or wrinkles!
For men and women who would like to fight the signs of aging, refresh skin, and remove unwanted hair, IPL treatments may be right for you! At O’Neill Plastic Surgery in Charleston, we offer the intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments to target problem areas and give our patients a renewed, youthful look.
The Cynosure (formally Palomar Icon) IPL technology uses specific optimal wavelengths of light to target certain chromophores in the skin to improve the color of the skin, correct some sun damage, correct uneven skin pigment, and eliminate most unsightly facial vessels. Treatments are performed by our on-staff certified aesthetician Rebecca Coble or our fully trained Physician’s Assistant, Meg Biggers. With these treatments, you will be able to see effects on different parts of your body, and for different issues, such as:
- Stretch marks
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Brown spots
- Facial vessels
- Uneven skin tones
YOUR IPL TREATMENT
IPL treatments send different wavelengths of light to specific areas of the skin to restore a more youthful appearance and eliminate or reduce those problem spots. If you are interested in hair removal, visit the IPL hair reduction page!
Treatments usually take less than thirty minutes and are minimally invasive. Our patients typically only have redness and minimal discomfort afterwards and can resume their daily resume quickly after their appointment. Some patients have expressed feeling a small amount of pain, similar to sunburn, but this can be easily reduced or prevented through minor medications and other methods used during your scheduled treatment.
