Blemishes, signs of aging, and unwanted tattoos can be a thing of the past with PicoSure laser treatment at First OC Dermatology!

What is PicoSure?

PicoSure by Cynosure was designed to address hyperpigmentation and other complexion and textural issues to help you feel comfortable and confident in your skin. With patented three-wavelength technology, PicoSure is the ideal, customizable treatment of pigmentary conditions.

PicoSure creates an intense photothermal impact in trillionths of a second, targeting the chromophore for better results in fewer treatments and without causing heat damage to the skin.

As one of the most advanced laser treatments on the market, PicoSure:

  • Optimally targets melanin to treat a range of pigmentary conditions
  • Incurs minimal thermal damage due to picosecond pulse duration
  • Provides customizable treatments with 2-6mm, 8mm, and 10mm spot sizes

Does PicoSure Work for Tattoo Removal?

PicoSure is one of the best tattoo removal lasers available today! The 755 nm wavelength is able to target black, blue, and green tattoo inks, while the optional 532 nm wavelength offers effective treatment of “sunset colors”—red, yellow and orange—which are typically hard to correct.

Laser tattoo removal with PicoSure also causes less damage to the skin overall, meaning you won’t have to worry about scarring. In some cases, patients with existing scarring may see an improvement in their appearance and texture.

With PicoSure laser treatments, we are also able to:

  • Tailor treatments using variable spot sizes
  • Use boost mode to better treat recalcitrant tattoos with shortened pulse width
  • Treat black ink in darker skin type patients using the 1064nm delivery

What Should I Expect During My PicoSure Treatment?

PicoSure laser treatments are quick and effective for treating hyperpigmentation, melasma, and other forms of discoloration as well as helping with acne scarring and providing effective laser tattoo removal.

 During your initial consultation, your provider will determine the best treatment regimen for you. They will walk you through the entire process, including how many treatments they recommend, post-treatment care, and what you can expect afterward. Typically, optimal results can be achieved in just 3-4 sessions.

 For most people, PicoSure laser treatments are relatively painless, though there may be some minor discomfort. It can be performed without any numbing agents or local anesthesia. Sessions can be completed in as little as 15 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. Afterward, you are free to return to your usual activities and go about life as normal.

How Long is the Downtime?

There is no downtime with PicoSure laser treatments. Patients may experience some mild discomfort that typically resolves within a few hours, but in some cases, may linger up to 24 hours. Since each patient is unique, we highly recommend consulting with our providers about any concerns you may have before or after treatment.
