Improve Skin Tone And Texture Using Picosecond Laser Technology

The signs of natural aging become etched into anyone’s skin. Sun exposure causes sun damage that leads to the development of sun spots and age spots, which brown spots of discolouration appear on the surface of the skin in areas that are exposed to the sun, such as:

  • face
  • hands
  • shoulders

The production of elastin and structural proteins collagen also starts to reduce leading to skin sagging, which improves the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. These signs of aging lead many patients to seek skin rejuvenation treatments to enhance the skin tone and texture. Fortunately, there are many treatment options effective and safe for all types of skin, such as pico toning or pico laser treatment.

What is pico toning?

It is also known by its other term pico laser treatment uses picosecond laser technology to get the following benefits:

  • Improve a patient’s skin tone
  • Reducing the appearance of hyperpigmentation
  • Erasing skin discoloration
  • Removing tattoos

The laser treatment uses concentrated ultra-short pulses of light to destroy melanin and pigmentation while keeping the surrounding tissue undamaged. The toning treatment is a kind of non-ablative laser treatment, with no abrasions made to the surface of the skin that provides patients with a more comfy treatment experience and reduces the downtime necessary following treatment.

What does laser treatment offer?

The laser treatment addresses an array of skin concerns, such as:

  • age spots
  • hyperpigmentation
  • acne scars
  • fine lines
  • wrinkles
  • uneven skin tone
  • unwanted tattoos

The laser treatment uses picoseconds to enhance the appearance of the skin by eliminating hyperpigmentation.

Picosecond laser technology

The picosecond laser technology emits light energy wavelengths at super-fast speeds, with every pulse lasting a trillionth of a second. The laser energy targets the melanin in the skin that breaks up for the body on metabolizing and reducing the pigmentation appearance. The picosecond laser used in the treatment applies gentle pressure to pigmented cells that causes them to break up and trigger the natural collagen production process of the body.

Is it effective for acne scars?

Acne scars form after an inflamed acne breakout that leaves behind various types of scars that don’t disappear independently and are difficult to remove even with the cosmetic treatment. There are numerous types of acne scars, including:

  • depressed acne scars
  • raised acne scars
  • associated pigmentation

The first step to dealing with acne scars is scheduling a consultation with an experienced board-certified dermatologist to determine the type of acne scar and the best treatment. The pico laser treatment is an effective treatment option for treating pigmentation around the scarring. The ultra-short pulses of laser energy destroy the pigmentation in the treatment area, which lessens the acne scars’ appearance.

Does Pico laser treatment for skin rejuvenation have downtime?

Pico laser treatment for skin rejuvenation has no downtime. The treatment is performed in 10 to 15 minutes, and it is painless. A numbing cream is applied before the procedure starts to minimize the potential discomfort during the treatment.

Following the process, the patients can quickly return to the regularly scheduled activities without the need for recovery time. Some would experience mild effects, including swelling and redness for various hours after the treatment, but subside independently.
