The Langdon Center of Guilford, CT Now Offering PicoSure® FOCUS Laser Facial Revitalization Treatments 
Board-Certified Cosmetic Surgeon Robert Langdon, MD Introduces Highly Effective No-Downtime Laser Procedure

Guilford, CT March 30, 2015
Dr. Robert Langdon, New Haven County, Fairfield County and Middlesex County’s most renowned laser cosmetic surgeon of The Langdon Center for Laser & Cosmetic Surgery in Guilford, CT is now offering PicoSure FOCUS laser facial revitalization treatments. 

As Connecticut’s premier cosmetic laser center, The Langdon Center offers the most comprehensive array of highly effective advanced laser technologies for rejuvenating sun damaged or scarred skin, many with minimal downtime. 

Dr. Langdon was one of the first physicians in the United States to introduce the revolutionary PicoSure laser, the world’s first picosecond aesthetic laser. The high-energy laser pulses from the PicoSure are compressed into the ultrashort picosecond range (a picosecond is 1 trillionth of a second), 20 times faster than the previous record-setting nanosecond lasers.

When delivered to the skin with a special focus lens array, the laser energy is fractionated into tiny spots of intense power that are too brief to impart a significant heat effect. The limited overall heating of the skin results in a comfortable treatment that requires no anesthetic (numbing) beforehand. After a facial treatment, there is only mild redness that fades completely within a few hours. Patients can see remarkable improvement after only a few treatments. Dark, pigmented sunspots and even melasma (dark areas of facial skin that result from excess estrogen hormone) quickly fade. Wrinkles and even acne scars show significant smoothing.
The impressive results of PicoSure FOCUS laser treatments on improving facial acne scars are highlighted in the current (March 2015) issue of JAMA Dermatology, the world’s most highly respected dermatology journal. Microscopic studies of treated skin revealed profound increase in new collagen, accounting for smoother skin texture.

“PicoSure FOCUS laser treatments are the new world standard for maximizing facial skin evitalization and minimizing the post-treatment recovery period,” says Dr. Langdon. “Patients can see remarkable improvement after only two or three treatments.”
