Areas of Concern
How PicoSure FOCUS Works
PicoSure FOCUS uses revolutionary picosecond laser technology to focus on your problem areas, whether it’s brown spots, sun damage, freckles, or pigmented lesions. PicoSure FOCUS is also an effective acne scar treatment. The laser pulses activate the body’s collagen and elastin production mechanisms and create new, healthy skin cells to replace laser-damaged areas. In addition, the localized, focused thermal energy does not harm the surrounding skin, giving you impressive results in very little time. PicoSure on dark and light skin is safe, especially as an acne scar treatment.

More than 20 million Americans live with acne scars, and we see many patients who have been living with scars since their teens.

What You Can Expect From PicoSure Laser Before and After
A PicoSure FOCUS treatment generally takes about 30 to 60 minutes. We will apply a numbing cream to your face beforehand to make your experience more comfortable. You may notice a slight blush tone or redness following treatment. There is no social downtime following PicoSure FOCUS. We generally recommend a package of three treatments about two to four weeks apart.
The Science Behind PicoSure FOCUS
PicoSure FOCUS uses a recent discovery known as skin cell activation to focus on your brown spots, sun damage, freckles, acne scars, or pigmented lesions. Skin cell activation causes cells to release proteins that trigger a healing response in your skin. This response produces new collagen and elastin for healthier-looking skin.
The localized, focused thermal energy does not harm the surrounding skin, giving you impressive results in very little time. PicoSure FOCUS laser is safe for most skin types, including very light and very dark skin. You will experience minimal redness (one to three hours) and will not need any extended downtime following your procedure.
