Am I a Candidate for PicoSure Treatment?
Adults in generally excellent health who have wide pores, patchy pigmentation, fine and deep wrinkles, and acne scars are good candidates for PicoSure. PicoSure is a light and safe laser therapy that should be suitable for most people who want to improve their skin’s color, tone, and texture.
Patients should have realistic expectations for the PicoSure therapy and should be aware that major improvements in skin quality may take numerous treatments. Because the laser targets melanin in the skin, prospective patients should avoid tanning and sun exposure before the treatment.
What Happens During the PicoSure Consultation?
You must first consult with Dr. John Farella before scheduling your PicoSure session. This is to check that you are a good candidate for the treatments as well as to provide you with additional information about the process and what to expect. You’ll discuss your objectives with him so that he can tailor a treatment plan to your specific requirements.
You will also have the opportunity to meet the brilliant specialists who will be involved in all aspects of your care during the PicoSure consultation, as well as ask questions and learn more about how PicoSure works. All of your PicoSure treatments will be administered by Dr. Farella.
How Many PicoSure Treatments Should I Undergo?
Because each case is unique, it’s difficult to predict how many PicoSure treatments will be required. The number of treatments required is mostly determined by the nature and severity of the problem. You may be given an estimate of how many treatments are required during your consultation, but this number may change as therapy advances.
The PicoSure Procedure
PicoSure’s simplicity and convenience are two of the reasons for its growing popularity. The majority of treatments take no more than 20-25 minutes, and the procedure is usually painless. The majority of patients compare the sensation to a sunburn, which some people handle better than others
A customized handpiece is utilized to administer picosecond laser light to the areas of the skin that require rejuvenation during the PicoSure process. A numbing gel may be used to make the treatment more comfortable.
Because the laser employs short bursts of radiation and can be carefully targeted to treat problems like dark spots and acne scarring, there is less damage to healthy skin. The therapy is done once the laser has gone over all of the treatment areas.
The PicoSure Recovery
PicoSure is a painless procedure with low downtime and few adverse effects. The skin may feel somewhat burnt following the surgery, and patients may experience modest redness for a short time. These adverse effects, on the other hand, are modest and should go away fast, allowing patients to resume their daily activities.
While it is safe to return to work and other activities immediately after PicoSure Therapy, it is recommended that you avoid intense exercise for at least 2 days. Patients must shield their sensitive skin from the sun’s damaging rays after receiving Picosure treatment to avoid hyperpigmentation.
