Facial skin revitalization was revolutionized in 2005 with the introduction of the Fraxel laser, the first laser that enabled fractional resurfacing. Now, the picosecond laser has revolutionized the field of laser treatments yet again. The Langdon Center proudly offers facial rejuvenation with PicoSure, the world’s first picosecond laser.
What is a PicoSure Laser Facial?
In a Fraxel laser treatment, microscopic spots of laser energy coagulate the skin, replacing old skin with new skin during healing. The treatment is gentle because only about 20% of the skin’s surface area is affected by each treatment, but this still has a noticeable rejuvenating effect on the patient’s complexion. This benefit is even greater with the advanced technology of the PicoSure picosecond laser.
A picosecond is a trillionth of a second and refers to the time span of the laser pulse. Laser energy delivered in an ultra-short (picosecond range) pulse has an anti-aging effect on the skin, removing excess skin pigmentation and stimulating new collagen production. The result is a brighter, clearer complexion and firmer, healthier skin.
Age spots due to sun damage respond well to picosecond laser treatments. Even difficult-to-treat conditions such as melasma and post-acne pigmentation can improve rapidly with PicoSure treatments. PicoSure laser facials can also effectively treat problems with skin texture, including wrinkles and acne scarring. In fact, the PicoSure is the first laser cleared by the FDA for treating facial acne scars.
