Skin rejuvenation with Picosure is the latest and most innovative in the aesthetic laser industry. It has revolutionized the photo rejuvenation and skin imperfections treatments.
Traditional skin rejuvenation laser treatments use photothermal action (heat). Skin rejuvenation with Picosure, on the other hand, uses ultra-short pulses to create a photomechanical effect, known as PressureWave. This creates shockwaves in the dermis which encourages the production of new collagen and elastin without damaging the skin.
