Laser skin treatments are a great way to improve your complexion without needles or extended recovery times. Laser therapies have many applications, including tattoo removal. PicoSure® uses groundbreaking technology to target and destroy pigment cells with minimal thermal damage to the skin.
How Does Skin Rejuvenation with PicoSure® Work?
PicoSure® was designed to address concerns with uneven pigmentation. The machine can utilize two different light wavelengths to provide customized treatment of red or brown spots, which can be caused by factors such as aging and sun damage. The light energy passes through the skin and is absorbed by melanin cells in the skin. The cells are then destroyed and absorbed by the body. PicoSure® also rejuvenates the skin by breaking down layers of damaged skin cells and stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, which are proteins that help give the skin its structure and elasticity.
A topical anesthetic may be used for your comfort, but the treatment is not typically very painful. There is also no downtime, although you may experience some swelling of the target area that should dissipate within a few hours.
Tattoo Removal with PicoSure®
Tattoos are a trendy way for people to adorn their bodies and express themselves. However, some may regret their decision, whether the tattoo was poorly done, or it just does not reflect their personality any longer. PicoSure® is an excellent way to remove even the most colorful tattoos. This treatment also eliminates tattoos in fewer sessions than traditional laser tattoo removal. Pigment particles in the tattoo ink are targeted and destroyed by the laser. Colorful inks, especially reds, yellows, and oranges, can be especially hard to remove because they do not contrast as much with the skin cells. However, PicoSure® can eliminate stubborn color particles and even tattoos that have been resistant to other removal treatments.
Skin Resurfacing Options
If you have more serious concerns about your skin texture, such as acne scars or fine lines, resurfacing may be a good option for you. At Hotchandani Laser, Vein & Cosmetic Surgery, we offer several resurfacing technologies to give you the smooth, youthful skin you desire.
- Secret™ RF uses radiofrequency energy transmitted through microneedles to stimulate collagen production and smoothes out wrinkles, fine lines, and stretch marks with minimal downtime.
- Fractora™ helps slow down the effects of aging and restore a more youthful appearance using a matrix of microneedles to deliver fractional radiofrequency energy into the skin.
- Smartskin®+ by Cynosure® is a non-ablative laser resurfacing procedure that can treat sun damage, uneven pigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles with less downtime than ablative treatments.
There are many treatments available that use the latest technology to help you achieve your cosmetic goals. To see which one may be right for you by calling our Green Bay office at (920) 497-9996, our Appleton office at (920) 738-6666, or by filling out our online contact form.
