Does it hurt?
The laser procedure is very tolerable by itself, but can feel somewhat warm. We use topical anesthetic cream and ice to make it even more tolerable.
How does it work?
The Picosure laser is an Alexandrite laser, 755nm, this wavelength will penetrate to the deep layer of the dermis. So it will destroy benign pigment spots that are located in the superficial and deep layer of the skin. This energy stimulates collagen production and also destroys pigment and melanocytes.
The Focus lens is used to fractionate the laser. This allows delivery of very high laser energy surrounded by untreated areas, so that the skin is able to regenerate very quickly with little or no downtime. The downside of fractionated lasers, is that you need more than treatment for optimal results.
