PicoSure FOCUS laser designed to create more youthful skin

by

PicoSure FOCUS may be the most important advance in anti-aging treatments I’ve seen in the decades I’ve been practicing cosmetic dermatology. It’s a gentle and easy treatment that diminishes signs of aging and acne scarring and – it may prove to be the best aging prevention treatment yet.
If you've suffered from acne and acne scarring or are seeing signs of premature aging due to skin damage, PicoSure FOCUS is likely to be a great treatment option for you. Studies by PicoSure have demonstrated remarkable results for the treatment of melasma, unwanted pigmentation, wrinkle lines and acne scarring. If you spend even a little time outside, you should examine yourself for signs of premature aging so you can delay the process as long as possible.

Signs of premature aging to look for:
  • Increased irregular pigmentation and wrinkles
  • Brown spots (also called liver and age spots)
  • Melasma – gray-brown patches that can appear on the face, cheeks, forehead, nose and chin

As few as three treatments can erase years off your skin, making you look and feel younger.

PicoSure Focus’s skin revitalizing effect can diminish:
  • Crow's feet
  • Lipstick lines
  • Smoker’s lines
  • Facial wrinkles
  • Forehead lines

AND THERE’S MORE –

Aging isn’t just a face problem – it’s everywhere the sun shines. We recommend PicoSure FOCUS as part of full anti-aging program for the neck, chest or décolleté, hands and arms.
Erasing acne scarsMore than 20 million Americans live with acne scars and we see a lot of patients who have been living with scars since their teens. The FDA’s approval of PicoSure FOCUS offers a solution for those who want to improve the texture and appearance of their skin. The treatment involves ultra-short pulse of laser energy to restore normal skin elasticity in the scar tissue and thus reducing the appearance of the scarring. The procedure is quick and easy requiring no downtime, so fitting the treatments into your life is simpler than some other options. PicoSure Focus has been attracting national media attention because acne scarring affects so many people. 

How does PicoSure FOCUS work?PicoSure FOCUS uses revolutionary picosecond laser technology to focus on your problem areas whether it’s brown spots, sun damage, freckles, pigmented lesions or acne scars. It reaches deep below the surface of the skin and targets acne scar tissues. The laser pulses activate the body’s collagen and elastin production mechanisms and create new, healthy skin cells to replace laser-damaged areas and scar tissue. The localized, intense thermal energy does not harm the surrounding skin, giving you impressive results in very little time. PicoSure FOCUS laser treatments are safe for most skin types, including very light and very dark skin. Treatment sessions commonly take about 30-60 minutes and most patients see results after about 3 sessions.
