What is PicoSure?

The PicoSure laser system uses innovative picosecond technology to provide both cosmetic treatments to improve the skin’s appearance and tattoo removal of all ink colors. It is the first of a new generation of aesthetic lasers that do not rely solely on heat to melt away unwanted tattoo ink or melanin, the pigment that causes dark spots on the skin. Instead, pigment is shattered, without burning the surrounding tissue. Even more impressively, PicoSure’s technology is designed to harness the body’s natural healing processes to restore youthful skin in ways never before possible.

At Luma Med Spa we use the PicoSure laser to address the following:

How can PicoSure rejuvenate my skin?

Give your skin a brightening pick-me-up with our PicoSure Focus device. This rejuvenating treatment offers patients a plentitude of skin-beautifying benefits, including a reduction in sun damage and pigmented areas as well as diminished lines, wrinkles and acne scars.

The skin resurfacing power of PicoSure offers patients similar results to ablative and non-ablative laser sessions; however, this treatment has a few advantages over the others. With PicoSure, patients do not need the same prep time nor downtime that is needed for ablative and non-ablative lasers. This makes it a great choice for patients seeking serious improvements in the look and feel of their skin.

Whether your concerns include fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, uneven tone or unwanted pigmentation, PicoSure Focus offers the leading technology for laser skin revitalization. Additionally, this is one of the few lasers safe for all skin types, giving all patients a revitalized complexion without the risk that comes with other devices.

How can PicoSure remove my tattoos?

In the past, tattoo removal has been a painful and lengthy process for patients suffering from tattoo regret. Thankfully, at Luma Med Spa, we now have a much more advanced technology available to remove just about any tattoo. The PicoSure laser is the most advanced system available for tattoo removal. PicoSure works by using PressureWave technology to shatter targeted ink into tiny particles that are then eliminated by the body. This amazing system is capable of quickly removing the full-spectrum of colored inks.

If you are considering tattoo removal, the PicoSure system is less painful than other methods. The majority of patients say this treatment feels similar to getting a tattoo, but for a much shorter duration. If necessary, Nitronox, a patient controlled analgesic, can be used to alleviate any discomfort. PicoSure laser tattoo removal treatments have few side effects, typically including a sunburn-like sensation and some temporary skin whitening. Most people are able to resume their normal activities immediately following treatment with no downtime required.

PicoSure tattoo removal treatments vary with size and color. Generally, at least four to six appointments are needed to completely remove the tattoo, which is significantly less than with other tattoo removal systems. This highly effective laser is also safe for tattoo removal on all skin types, including darker complexions.
