The Many Uses And Benefits of The PicoSure Laser

Benefits of the PicoSure Laser

When it comes to skin rejuvenation, the array of options may seem endless and confusing. The PicoSure laser offers treatments that address multiple challenges- wrinkles and fine lines, tattoo and age spot removal, and treatment for acne scars. Dr. O’Neill’s team in Charleston, SC uses the PicoSure laser system to help our patients achieve a more pleasing appearance.

Tattoo Removal

The first thing that comes to most people’s minds when they consider PicoSure laser treatments is tattoo removal. Never before has a single treatment been able to address such a wide range of pigments and types of tattoo ink. Most laser systems rely either on light or heat to break up the tattoo ink, allowing the body to absorb it, reducing the color. The PicoSure system provides both heat and light waves, attacking the ink on two levels for a more comfortable, more effective solution to tattoo removal.

Acne Scarring

Acne scars can be notoriously difficult to remove. The raised, discolored areas of skin don’t respond to many resurfacing options. The PicoSure system, however, has been shown to significantly improve the appearance of acne and other facial scars, reducing the pigmentation and smoothing the skin. Acne scars, age spots, freckles, and other hyperpigmentation can be greatly reduced or removed in just a few treatments.

Skin Resurfacing and Wrinkle Reduction

The PicoSure laser system does more than reduce the look of scars and aid in tattoo removal. The stimulating effects of the laser treatment can be used to stimulate collagen growth in the deeper layers of the dermis, creating a plumper, rejuvenated look. The regrowth of collagen helps reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in a more youthful appearance and fresher looking skin. More effective than other treatments, the PicoSure laser system offers many uses and benefits.
