PicoSure FOCUS in Portland
Refresh your skin with this gentle and easy acne scar treatment that diminishes signs of aging as well as blemishes left behind by acne flare-ups.

Areas of Concern
How it 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. The localized, focused thermal energy does not harm the surrounding skin, giving you impressive results in very little time. PicoSure FOCUS laser, especially as an acne scar treatment, is safe for most skin types, including very light and very dark skin.
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. PicoSure FOCUS offers a solution for those who want to improve the texture and appearance of their skin. If used as an acne scar treatment, the procedure is quick and easy, requiring no downtime.
Signs of premature aging:
- Increased irregular pigmentation and wrinkles
- Brown spots (also called liver and age spots)

PicoSure FOCUS's skin revitalizing effect can diminish:
- Crow’s feet
- Lipstick lines

What you can expect:
A PicoSure FOCUS treatment takes about 30-60 minutes. A numbing cream is applied to the face prior to treatment to make your experience more comfortable. There may be a slight blush tone or redness following treatment. There is no social downtime following PicoSure FOCUS. We recommend a package of 3 treatments about 2-4 weeks apart.
