Maybe it’s Magic…Some say “Hocus, Pocus”, we prefer, “PicoSkin FOCUS”
When it comes to any type of anti-aging treatment where needles or injections are involved, there seems to be three very specific categories: those who love them, those who oppose them, and those who don’t dare admit they get them.
You can’t blame the fear. 20 years ago, tragic overuse of treatments by stars and starlets alike, caused faces to change dramatically and not for the better. More so, the lack of consumer understanding was absolutely absurd. Even still today, there are a large number of patients with the misconception as to what can and can’t be corrected with injectables. You’d be surprised how conservatively it can be done! It’s a shame, really, because while a lot of names you know get these treatments, along with others you wouldn’t, when done by trained professionals, the results can be fantastic.
For those of you who aren’t ready for wrinkle relaxers and fillers just yet, laser skin therapies and energy based treatments are fast becoming the top way to rejuvenate skin.
Did you know that after the age of 30, your body no longer produces its own collagen?! The ONLY way to increase collagen production is through injection or laser energies.
While creams and serums help to maintain your skin health on a daily basis, building your collagen through laser treatments can easily take years off your face giving you a more revived and youthful appearance.
Immensely popular for its tattoo removal counterpart, the PicoSure laser now offers some of the best technology in skin revitalization. Aptly named the PicoSkin FOCUS Array, this is a quick and easy non-surgical, non-invasive laser skin procedure that can treat most areas of the body including but not limited to, face, neck, décolleté, hands, legs, and more. Patient reports show marked improvements in, acne scars, hyper-pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, in addition to overall tone and texture improvements.
Targeting deep within the dermis to kick start collagen production and rejuvenate the skin’s fibres, the PicoSkin Focus laser wakes up the cells, sending them a message to regenerate and repair themselves in order to create new collagen and elastin.
I recently experienced the PicoSure/PicoSkin Laser for myself. Targeting one big brown spot on my cheek, and my entire chest. The actual procedure was over in less than 30 minutes (including my typical, “wait, stop, ok, I’m ready” routine).
After completing only two sessions thus far, my hideous cheek spot has lightened remarkably. My chest has less redness, a more evenly toned appearance and is overall, brighter. The best part for me is that my skin now feels super soft and smooth.
In my case, there’s been moderate to significant visual changes before and after, but I’m sure I’ve asked almost everyone I’ve come in contact with, if they want to touch my skin, due to the smoothness of the texture!
These treatments are not just to turn back the clock but to maintain your skin’s present health and fitness. We like to refer to it as laser toning.
