Your face often betrays your age despite a healthy lifestyle and bottles upon bottles of skincare products! One of the most popular skin treatments here at Premier Vein & Body to battle the visible effects of aging is the non-ablative, fractional skin rejuvenation provided by the PicoSure Focus laser. PicoSure rejuvenation is admired by our patients because of the countless benefits it delivers, especially considering how little treatment time and downtime each one involves.
1. Treat Fine Lines and Wrinkles
If you’re bothered by fine lines and wrinkles, laser skin rejuvenation can smooth them out and make you look years younger without surgery. We recommend this treatment if you have mild to moderate signs of aging on your face.
2. Reduce Acne Scars
It can be frustrating to live with acne scars, long after your acne has gone away. The good news is that laser skin rejuvenation can reduce the appearance of your acne scars and give you the smoother skin you’ve been longing for.
3. Minimize Sun Damage
Sun-damaged skin can make you look older than you really are. If you are facing sun-damaged skin, laser skin rejuvenation can minimize it and give you an even skin tone and a beautiful glow.
4. Treat Melasma
This challenging skin condition, often caused by fluctuating hormones or excessive sun exposure, causes a pigmentation disorder that results in brown or grey patches to appear on the face. The laser energy used in traditional skin rejuvenation treatments can often just make the melasma worse. The PicoSure Laser is a unique treatment option for melasma because it doesn’t produce thermal heat, so it doesn’t “burn” the pigment, it “shatters” it using pressure energy. Without heat, there is no risk of causing additional inflammation in the skin.
5. Smooth Skin
If your skin is rough, laser skin rejuvenation may be just what you need to achieve a smooth texture. PicoSure’s Skin Cell Activation feature initiates “dermal remodeling”, reducing the appearance of acne scars and wrinkles, for smoother skin. After multiple treatments, you won’t be able to stop touching your face because it will be soft and smooth.

6. No Downtime
Unlike other skin rejuvenation laser treatments, the groundbreaking technology of PicoSure Focus delivers ultra-short bursts of pressure energy to target areas without using any laser heat at all. Because the pressure energy does not damage surrounding skin (unlike laser energy), there is no downtime with just minimal redness or peeling skin. Immediately after treatment, your skin may look red and feel “sunburned” for a short while. Patients are typically free to apply makeup and resume work and their daily life while enjoying the “PicoSure Glow” that is visible within 24 hours!
7. Smaller Pores
Enlarged pores can make you feel self-conscious, especially when you’re up close and personal with other people. Fortunately, laser skin rejuvenation can reduce their size and give you your confidence back.
8. No Needles
If you’re afraid of needles, rest assured you won’t have to worry about them with PicoSure laser skin rejuvenation. Unlike Fraxel and other fractional laser treatments, there is no need for anesthesia prior to the treatment, although we do provide patients with a topical numbing cream before-hand. PicoSure delivers beautiful, healthy skin without any pain or needles!
9. Short Treatment Time
Our PicoSure laser skin rejuvenation treatments typically take anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes to complete so you do not have to block out lengthy periods of time on your weekday schedule. Although some results will be noticeable after one treatment, most patients require a series of three treatments spaced two to four weeks apart for noticeable results, similar to the results achieved through ablative laser technology.
10. No Pain
The PicoSure laser facial uses pressure energy instead of laser energy to deliver impressive results while providing a gentle, comfortable treatment, so you don’t have to worry about any pain or discomfort. Most patients compare it to the snap of a thin rubber band. PicoSure truly is a “lunchtime laser skin rejuvenation treatment”!
