PicoSure® Laser Facial Rejuvenation in Reno

Dramatically Change the Tone and Texture of Your Skin*

 
PicoSure® — Plastic Surgery in Reno, NV
The patented PressureWave™ technology, combined with the new Focus™ Lens Array, is the best way to stimulate the generation of new collagen and elastin in the dermis/skin, with minimal downtime and minimal discomfort. Seventy percent of the total energy is delivered in little, tiny microspots, and 30 percent of lower energy to the background. This allows an aggressive treatment without damaging the skin. This pattern of energy into the tissues also allows a shattering of pigment such as sun damage, or freckles. The laser’s photomechanical action has no thermal or heat damage to the skin.

What to Expect With Treatments

We make the laser treatment as comfortable as possible by putting numbing cream on the face for 15 minutes, and using a Zimmer chiller to blow cool air on the face. The actual treatment time takes approximately 30 minutes. True downtime, which is a mild "pinking" of skin, lasts anywhere from a couple of hours to a few days. It looks like a mild sunburn after the treatment, and spots may get a shade or two darker for a few days. We recommend an average of four treatments, one month apart.
