Picosure Laser Pigmentation Treatment
How can PicoSure help my pigment?
Target sun-damaged skin, age spots, sun-spots, uneven skin tone and freckles. Picosure can simply reduce or eliminate pigmentation by shattering the pigment into smaller fragments. These broken fragments will either exfoliate off the surface or be flushed out through the lymphatic system. The technician will advise if requires a doctors letter prior to treatment.
What does the laser feel like?
The PicoSure laser feels like a warm flick with a rubber band. It’s very bearable and most clients find their pain ranking 2/10. You can apply a numbing cream such as Emla or Numit 30 mins prior. An average sessions for facial depigmentation takes 15-20 minutes.
Will i need a doctors certificate?
Yes, you require a doctors letter/certificate/written approval before we laser your pigmentation, especially if you’ve had suspicious lesions in the past or any history of malignant lesions.
How does the laser work on my pigment?
The laser ruptures the pigment into fragments which is then drained out by the lymph system. Superficial pigment usually removes easier than deeper pigment. Initially the pigment frosts, going a white/beige colour. This is only temporary and usually subsides within an hour.
After my treatments…
You may need to come back yearly for touch-up treatments to eliminate any new sun spots that may arise. In Queensland, it’s nearly impossible to have zero sun exposure. Our UV ray is too harsh. You should always wear SPF 50+ between treatments to get the absolute best results. We always recommend wearing a 50+ sunscreen even after your final treatment to protect the skin.
