How Does PicoSure Pro Work?

The Pico Pro System by Cynosure is a 755 nm picosecond laser that uses pressure waves instead of heat to provide safe and effective treatment for unwanted pigmentation and skin revitalization for all skin types. Since it delivers energy so rapidly, it causes vibrations in the skin that causes pigment particles to shatter. The pressure waves of energy also stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, making this a powerful laser for treating fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars.


How Is It Different From Other Picosecond Lasers?

The PicoSure Pro is the newest and most advanced generation of picosecond lasers. The wavelength of this laser has a stronger affinity to target melanin in comparison to the PicoWay laser. The technology can be customized to optimize your treatment and outcomes. Multiple lenses on this offer the ability to provide both pigment reduction and collagen production. You can expect a better result with the PicoSure Pro.

Downtime is minimal with the PicoSure Pro laser. You will experience mild to moderate redness immediately after the treatment. The redness may last for 24-48 hours. There are no skin surface changes or healing time. Makeup can be applied within 24-48 hours.

What Results Can I Expect with PicoSure Pro?

You can expect a gradual and progressive reduction in pigment. Some sunspots may diminish significantly with the first treatment and some may linger and require further treatments. Improvement in skin texture issues such as fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars can be expected over the weeks and months following your treatments.

Am I A Good Candidate For PicoSure Pro?

The PicoSure Pro is safe for all skin types, all year round. For patients with richly pigmented skin, who are wanting to treat pigmentation, a test patch will be required to ensure that you tolerate this treatment well. The collagen induction treatment protocol is not done on the darkest skin types for safety reasons.
