Acne may not be a major source of anxiety anymore, but acne scars and pock marks from your teenage years may still cause your skin to look bumpy and uneven. Using PicoSure’s noninvasive laser technology, you can significantly fade the appearance of acne scars to restore the skin’s youthful appearance
How Does Laser Scar Removal Work?
PicoSure uses revolutionary picosecond laser technology to reach deep below the surface of the skin and target acne scar tissues. PressureWave laser pulses activate the body’s collagen and elastin production mechanisms and create new, healthy skin cells to replace laser-damaged areas and scar tissue. PicoSure laser scar removal does not harm the surrounding skin, giving you impressive results in very little time. PicoSure laser treatments are safe for all skin types, including very light and very dark skin.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Depending on the severity of your acne scarring, treatments can vary from 1 to 8 or more sessions. You will notice an improvement after the first treatment, and you get better and better after each subsequent treatments. Mild to moderate scarring may take up to four treatments, and severe scarring may take up to 8 sessions. Your provider will explain the number of treatments you may need during your free consultation.
