SKIN REVITALIZATION WITH PICOSURE®
Montilla Plastic Surgery is lucky to have one of the few PicoSure® Lasers by CynoSure in the state! Known for its technological advances for use in multiple procedures, the PicoSure®’s breakthrough Focus Lens Array can also be used in a laser facial treatment to generate laser-induced breakdowns (LIOB) in the epidermis.
“The Focus rejuvenation is an excellent alternative to fillers and other invasive procedures,” said Sarah Diaz, medical assistant and laser technician. Most treatments with Sarah are conducted immediately following a skin consultation. Treatments last approximately 30 minutes and result in:
- Tightening of wrinkles around the eyes, crow’s feet
- Skin revitalization
- Reduction/deletion of melasma
- Reduction/deletion of pigmented lesions and fine lines
Focus facial rejuvenation with the PicoSure® Laser activate your body’s natural cell processes for heathy, more youthful-looking skin. Only Focus treatments lighten unwanted pigment and uniquely stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin. According to Sarah, “This light-based treatment targets all three layers of photo-damaged tissue; epidermal pigment, mid-dermal wrinkles, and deep-dermal laxity. It feels a bit like a rubber band snap, but I apply topical numbing cream to make the procedure more comfortable.”
LIOBs cause pressure waves which spread into the dermis, activating cell signaling and initiating an enhanced inflammatory healing response. This leads to increased collagen and elastin but without thermal injury as seen in other lasers.
“I have experienced micro-needling before and although it was fabulous, the downtime is much longer than the laser facial,” said Lyria Garcia, a professional photographer and patient at Montilla Plastic Surgery. “With the laser, the downtime was nothing and my face was radiant the next day. It visibly reduced my wrinkles, firmed my skin, and reduced the appearance of my pores in just one treatment. I have done Botox, but won’t do it again because the laser results last longer. I really feel and see a glow. I hope to have my second treatment soon!”
If you are looking for an alternative to invasive cosmetic procedures, the PicoSure® Focus laser rejuvenation is perfect. Sarah recommends four consecutive treatments for maximum results. Treatments should be spaced four weeks apart.
Sarah also suggests PicoSure Laser treatment for all-color tattoo removal. Sarah says, “The results are unmatched by any other laser.”
Sarah is passionate about the PicoSure® laser at Montilla Plastic Surgery and is hoping to use it for good in many ways. Sarah’s mother is a breast cancer survivor, so she is offering complimentary radiation tattoo removal to all patients who book a consultation with her.
