With a unique combination of leading-edge technologies, our light-based fine line and wrinkle treatments target all three layers of photo-damaged tissue, epidermal pigment, mid-dermal wrinkles, and deep-dermal laxity. Then the body’s natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin—the crucial building blocks of youthful looking skin.
Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
If you have fine lines and wrinkles around your eyes, mouth, or any area of your body including face, hands, and arms you may be a good candidate for the PicoSure treatment.
How long do fine line and wrinkle treatments take?
The treatment can be performed in as little as 15 minutes or less, depending on the size of the targeted area.
How many treatments will I need?
A series of 3-4 treatments is recommended. Treatment intervals are 2-4 weeks but can be up to 8 weeks for darker skin types. Each patient is unique and will be evaluated prior to treatment.
What does the treatment feel like?
Most patients find the procedure tolerable and require no numbing cream or anesthesia. The use of a forced air cooling system (Zimmer Cryo 6) is used to minimise discomfort. Patients often compare the laser pulse to a snap of a thin rubber band and most people handle this treatment well.
What type of post treatment care is necessary?
It is important to keep the area clean and to avoid any irritation. Your practitioner will provided additional after care instructions as needed to ensure a quick recovery.
What’s the down time?
Unlike fractional lasers you will only have redness and swelling for a few hours, sometimes within an hour it may only appear as if you climbed a flight of stairs. For busy people this has been a game changer and no more hiding at home for days on end.
How quickly will I recover?
Side effects include temporary redness and swelling at the treatment site that typically resolves in less than an hour but in some cases may linger for up to 24 hours.
