As you age, you may start to notice dark age spots and acne scars. The age spots may be new, but acne scars can significantly affect your daily life from when you were a teenager to present day. If you’re tired of trying to hide acne scars or age spots with makeup or scarves, it may be time to look into treatment options.
Skin Rejuvenation Laser Treatments
This type of skin treatment is non-invasive. Your doctor will use the microbeams of energy in the laser to break down old skin tissue, which stimulates your body’s natural healing process. During this process, new collagen will form and improve the texture and look of your skin. Treatment time is very short, only about 15 to 30 minutes, and results in little downtime. After the treatment, you may experience mild redness or discomfort, but will most likely be able to return to your regular activities within a day of your treatment.
The PicoSure is a high tech laser from the industry-leading Cynosure medical laser treatments manufacturer. PicoSure uses tried and tested laser technology to remove tattoos, revitalize skin, clear acne scars, reduce wrinkles, and reduce age spots. To remove acne scars, PicoSure breaks up the cells under the scars and promotes smooth, supple skin with healing. The PicoSure can also remove brown spots in a quick and painless way that leaves your skin looking and feeling younger. PicoSure gently delivers short bursts of photomechanical light energy to target problem areas without causing harm to the surrounding skin. Photomechanical light causes less cellular damage than traditional skin revitalization laser techniques. These treatments are about 10 minutes each and are scheduled six to eight weeks apart.
