The PicoSure® FOCUS™ Lens Array (FLA) is a revolutionary v rejuvenating treatment that can address numerous issues including lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and acne scars. It uses the same advanced technology as the PicoSure® laser, the most effective method of tattoo removal currently available. Read on to learn how the PicoSure® FOCUS™ can rejuvenate your appearance, giving your skin a smooth, youthful glow.
How does it work?
As an FDA-approved aesthetic picosecond laser, PicoSure® is the first of its kind. Unlike traditional lasers, this technology has a dual approach when treating skin conditions: a photothermal process and a photomechanical impact based on ultra-short pulse duration. This combination of photothermolysis and intense photomechanical impact, known as Pressure Wave™, breaks up pigments in the target area while keeping the surrounding tissue safe and intact. This safely causes sun spots or other discoloration to fade.
With the addition of the FLA, the PicoSure® pulse is magnified 20X and redistributed into microscopic patterns of ultra-high fluence tightly focused regions, embedded in a low fluence background. This creates laser induced optical breakdown (LIOB) in the epidermis, which stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin. Ultimately, the skin’s elasticity is restored and the appearance of lines, wrinkles and scarring is reduced.
The unique mechanism of action of PicoSure® FOCUS™ has shown results similar to non-ablative and even ablative lasers, but without the prep time, patient discomfort or downtime. Patients appreciate the fast treatments, and typically experience only one hour of redness allowing them to quickly return to their regular daily activities. Multiple laser treatment sessions are typically required to see optimal results, but the results can be permanent or very long-lasting.
If you are bothered by the appearance of acne scars, lines and wrinkles or skin pigmentation issues, such as age spots and sun damage, schedule a consultation with Dr. Krant to see if treatment with the PicoSure® FOCUS™ is right for you.
