PicoSure Focus – Gentle Laser Skin Resurfacing

Hinsdale PicoSure Focus treatment
PicoSure® is the first picosecond aesthetic laser. This technology operates with briefer pulses than any other laser, typically allowing us to treat unwanted pigmentation, wrinkles, and scar tissue without damaging the surrounding healthy skin.*

Many rejuvenating aesthetic treatments require long periods of downtime and significant patient commitment. The PicoSure Focus allows you to continue living your life – without side effects or troubling risks.* If there’s an aspect of your skin that has been causing frustration, we encourage you to learn more about this patient-friendly form of skin rejuvenation.

While we’ve detailed specific applications for treatment below, there are no restrictions for the PicoSure Focus. This treatment is suitable for nearly any patient looking to revitalize their skin. Treatment can lift years from your appearance, leaving your skin more youthful and radiant.*

How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?

Laser skin resurfacing accomplishes two things – removal of dead or damaged skin, and stimulation of new collagen growth. This helps disrupt the aging process and turn back the block on your skin’s appearance.

PicoSure utilizes a special wavelength of light to covert its laser energy into gentle pressure. The pressure lightly presses on the skin’s cells, triggering the production of collagen and elastin in the area. The body creates these connective proteins as a healing response to the laser. In the weeks that follow treatment, this revitalizes the skin.

Because PicoSure is gentler than other resurfacing lasers like Fraxel, patients don’t have a significant healing period following a treatment session. Instead, they typically experience only a gentle redness that fades within a few hours.

Wrinkle Treatment

When faced with fine lines and wrinkles, you feel less like yourself, and prematurely aged. The number of treatments available for wrinkle reduction is vast, but PicoSure offers some unique advantages.

  • Its laser light focuses on multiple layers of skin to treat lines at multiple levels. Between superficial sun damage, epidermal pigmentation, mid-dermal wrinkles, and deep-dermal laxity, the PicoSure can improve the skin’s appearance in a comprehensive fashion.*
  • Laser wrinkle treatment with PicoSure is possible around the eyes, mouth, other areas of the face, and the hands and arms.*

Removing Pigmentation

While sunlight may feel good, it does some undesirable things to your skin. UV rays trigger the production of melanin, which forms dark patches across exposed flesh. Some patients can also be born with excessive pigmentation, or experience it as a result of hormonal fluctuations. No matter the cause of the brown spots, you can feel burdened by them.

Enter PicoSure. Its light energy targets brown and red spots, working to break up the additional pigmentation. As the skin heals after treatment, the superficial spots may flake away, leaving clear skin in their wake.*

  • Depending on your skin’s pigmentation, we may recommend IPL treatments instead of PicoSure Focus. IPL treatments are excellent for brown spots resulting from sun damage, while the Focus is more appropriate for spots stemming from hormonal changes.
  • We will carefully examine your skin and discuss your history prior to recommending a treatment method, so that you can receive the option that fits best.*

Laser Acne Scar Removal

We almost all have scars that we would like to minimize – but surgical scar revision can be complicated. PicoSure allows you to tackle acne scar tissue without invasive procedures.*

After acne has cleared, your skin remains changed – with scarring that brings up unwanted memories. This scar tissue doesn’t have to remain with you for life. PicoSure delivers laser light to internal layers of the skin, stimulating support structures. As the skin heals, damaged tissue is processed and healthy skin emerges.* PicoSure Focus is FDA-approved for the treatment of acne scars.
