Picosure is a Safe Excellent Option for Hyperpigmentation
Picosure focused treatments are an excellent way to brighten up the skin. The Focused treatment is safe and effective for most skin types including yours. Treatments are quick and take about 15 minutes to perform. There is a mild pinching and burning sensation which can be lessened with either topical anesthesia or just cold air. When I perform the Picosure treatments, the cold air is sufficient for comfort.
Most clients will require anywhere from 2 to 5 treatments depending on what you are treating. For pigmentation, 2 to 3 is enough whereas for acne scarring and textural improvement, up to 5 may be needed. There are very few side effects and redness usually only persists for 24 hours.
It is important to utilize sunscreen after the treatment and limit sun exposure.
