World’s first, worlds ahead
PicoSure is the world’s first picosecond aesthetic laser, widely recognized for its technology leadership, proven performance and industry-leading body of clinical evidence. Capable of skin revitalization with virtually no downtime, it is a unique practice addition that will make patients and physicians happy.
What makes it so unique
Unlike most other picosecond devices, PicoSure utilizes a 755 nm wavelength that naturally targets melanin and is less absorbed in blood compared to the more common 1064 nm. In trillionths of a second, the 755 nm energy relies less on the photothermal action of longer-pulsed devices, instead creating an intense photomechanical impact. This spares skin of high thermal damage and results in greater disruption of the target chromophore for better clearance with fewer treatments using less energy.
But the best is yet to come…
The revolutionary Focus™ Lens Array
The headline says it all. The Focus Lens Array is a breakthrough fractional lens enabling skin revitalization with virtually no downtime, not possible with any other laser platform.
Using a unique method of action, the Focus Lens precisely redistributes and delivers 755 nm energy to the skin. Both high and low intensity energy lightens and clears unwanted pigment, while the high energy creates laser-induced optical breakdowns (LIOBs) in the epidermis.
LIOBs form and absorb incoming energy, expanding so quickly that they create pressure waves, which transmit into the dermis. This pressure squeezes surrounding cells and simulates a pressure injury, activating cell signaling and initiating an enhanced inflammatory healing response. This elegant injury leads to increased collagen and elastin production in the dermis without the damage caused by energy passing through the dermoepidermal junction.
Patients treated with Focus experience only a few hours of mild redness, with pigment, wrinkle and acne scar results comparable to more aggressive technologies.
Why it matters to your patients
After a series of treatments, patients are seeing the lightening and brightening they want, without the downtime they don’t. The increase in collagen and elastin can make for a visible difference in the appearance of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, while the laser energy also works to clear unwanted pigment. PicoSure is used for all skin types, ensuring that patients can feel comfortable knowing that the treatments are a safe and effective option. In addition, PicoSure can also remove unwanted tattoos.
