The PicoSure Treatment Process at our Minneapolis Area Medspa Clinics
Your treatment will always be preformed by a licensed aesthetician or RN who is also a certified laser technician. First, we will cleanse your skin and apply a topical numbing cream. A continual stream of cool air, called a Zimmer, will also be used to offset any discomfort. You will feel a series of small snaps and sense a bright light as the laser moves over your skin. Our patients find this procedure incredibly comfortable, and we take great care so you think so too!
Immediately following treatment, and for the next couple of days, it may seem like you have a very light sunburn. You may immediately return to wearing makeup. After treatment, the pigment will temporarily darken and then will slough away to reveal your clear skin. Within two weeks you will have brighter, smoother skin! You will also notice a reduction in pore size, acne scarring, and fine lines. Your skin will be sensitive to sunlight so avoid direct sunlight until fully healed. Daily SPF is recommended to protect and enhance the longevity of the results.
Most patients see dramatic improvement in just one treatment. Typically four to six treatments are needed for optimum results and can be scheduled as close as two weeks apart. The PicoSure is a great procedure to do as a part of a yearly maintenance protocol. If you have an active outdoor lifestyle in the summer, it may be best to schedule a PicoSure treatment in the fall or winter when you skin is not tanned.
