Collagen and Elastin are essential components in the skin which keep it looking supple, firm, and youthful. Unfortunately, the production of these natural proteins declines as you advance in age, causing the skin to sag and wrinkle. Besides giving you a youthful appearance, collagen is also essential for healing injuries to the skin, which is why you may get acne scarring. Wildwood picosure treatment rejuvenates your skin by increasing your body’s collagen production.
As collagen production gradually increases, the tone and texture of your skin smoothen. Over time, this gentle treatment can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fill in acne scars, and improve the overall look of your skin.
What is picosure?
Picosure is an advanced laser treatment that uses short bursts of energy to target problem areas of the skin. Other lasers use a constant beam of intense light which can damage your skin, but picosure minimizes the risk of skin damage. Your specialist may recommend this treatment for skin issues such as brown pigmentation, acne scars, wrinkling, and freckles. Even better, picosure is a non-surgical approach, which fits easily into busy lifestyles.
The benefits of picosure
Picosure lasers cause fewer side effects than your regular laser that cause skin damage, redness, and pain. It also doesn’t get in your schedule since you can resume your everyday activities immediately. Picosure is mainly used to remove tattoos since it is effective and precise in targeting unwanted pigment. However, its anti-aging and skin rejuvenation effects are equally impressive, so specialists use this laser for multiple skin problems.
Who is a good candidate for picosure?
The treatment is suitable for adults in general good health struggling with skin issues such as large pores, uneven pigmentation, and acne scars. Most people should be eligible to undergo treatment since picosure is gentle and safe. However, it is essential to consult with your doctor to ensure you are a good candidate and learn its ins and outs. The initial consultation also allows you to discuss your expectations with your doctor. Your provider may let you know that Picosure is not a quick fix, and you may need multiple treatments to notice a significant change in skin quality.
If it is safe to proceed with treatment, you need to avoid tanning beds, prolonged sun exposure, and self-tanning lotions at least a month before each treatment session. You may also need to avoid any products with retinol and retinoid at least 48 hours before the treatment.
What happens during a Picosure session?
On the day of your appointment, your provider applies topical numbing cream on your skin at least 30 minutes before treatment. The specialist adjusts the laser based on skin concerns and cleans the treatment area. You may need to wear protective eyewear before to cover your eyes from laser light. An average session takes 20 minutes, but the time may be longer if you need treatment in multiple areas.
