PicoSure Laser

A PicoSure® laser treatment is a non-invasive skin revitalising procedure that can address a range of the common skin imperfections including age spots, melasma, freckles, or skin damage caused by the sun or acne.

The PicoSure laser treatment can also be used to reduce fine lines and wrinkles to create a more youthful appearance, and your skin will become smoother and firmer.

The PicoSure laser is recognised as one of the most advanced devices on the market, and can be used on all skin types, anywhere on the body, for an extremely wide variety of skin concerns.  It uses ultra-short pulses of light to create shockwaves in the dermis (an inner layer of the skin) which encourages the production of new collagen and elastin without damaging the skin.

What is a PicoSure laser treatment?

With minimal pain, the PicoSure laser emits ultra-short pulses of light to the treated area which is absorbed by the skin. The energy created is converted into mechanical stress that causes the pigmentation area to break up into tiny particles. These particles are then eliminated by the body’s immune system, which results in the skin imperfections to fade.

The results from using PicoSure laser ensures it is very popular choice within NEO Health Clinic.
