a quick and easy non-surgical, non-invasive laser skin treatment that focuses on your problem areas whether it's brown spots, sun damage, freckles, pigmented lesions, wrinkles or acne scars.
Blue's 'PicoSkin' service offers us a remarkable 'lengthening' of the skin's elastin fibers, previously only seen with the use of ablative CO2 resurfacing lasers. Without ablating the outer layer of the skin the FOCUS Lens Array effectively targets major skin concerns by providing maximum result, with little to no downtime.
The goal of the PicoSkin treatment is to rebuild a stronger skin texture rather than burning the top layer of the skin off. By using higher amounts of energy in shorter pulses, we can breakdown pigment and scarring with pressure instead of heat, creating the production of collagen and elastin.
Working deep under the skin's surface, PicoSkin creates no visible skin damage except for mild redness, which generally resolves within 2-24 hours.
For optimal results, a series of treatments is recommended and can be tailored to target your specific skin concerns.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is PicoSure?
PicoSure® is the world's first and only picosecond aesthetic laser platform for multiple aesthetic applications including tattoo removal, acne scar treatment, removal of pigmented lesions and wrinkle treatment. This unparalleled breakthrough in laser technology delivers ultra-short pulse bursts of energy to the skin in trillionths of a second to gently target and eliminate pigment without harming the surrounding skin. Improve the look of your skin and achieve a more youthful appearance by removing pigment or treating wrinkles and acne scars faster than ever before with PicoSure.
Why PicoSure Laser Treatment?
It's important to consider your options. Face-lifts, fillers, and toxins are associated with significant downtime, risks, and side-effects. Patients often consider these treatments a "last resort." The first step to achieving a more youthful appearance or just tweaking some trouble-spots may be a PicoSure laser treatment. Speak with our office today to see if this treatment is right for you!
What causes unwanted pigment?
Melanin gives us our skin color. Pigmented lesions including sunspots, age spots, and brown patches, are dark in color because the melanin is concentrated in one area of the skin. Most pigmented lesions come from sun exposure while some patients are born with them. Hormonal changes can also induce pigment changes in the skin.
What types of pigmented lesions can PicoSure remove?
Lasers remove a variety of unwanted pigment. Age spots, freckles, and brown patches can all be removed with PicoSure. During a free consultation, your practitioner will put together a treatment regime to help you achieve pigment-free skin fast.
How does laser scar treatment work?
Unlike surgery, laser acne scar treatment uses ultra-short pulses of laser light to reach deeply into the skin's sub-layers, treating the support structure. Then the body's natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin—the crucial building blocks of normal-looking skin. It's a fast and simple procedure that's easy to tolerate and requires little-to-no downtime.
What types of scars can be treated?
Laser acne scar treatment is FDA-cleared for acne scars on any area of the body, including the face.
Am I a good candidate for this treatment?
Laser acne scar treatment can work on many skin types, including very light and darker skin. Contact a provider to find out if you are a good candidate for this treatment.
How long does it take?
The treatment can be performed in as little as 15 minutes or less, depending on the size of the targeted area.
How many treatment sessions will it take to treat scars?
Acne scars will begin to show improvement in 2 treatments but a series of 3 to 5 treatments is recommended for optimum aesthetic results.
How does wrinkle treatment work?
With a unique combination of leading-edge technologies, our light-based treatments target all three layers of photodamaged tissue, epidermal pigment, mid-dermal wrinkles, and deep-dermal laxity. Then the body's natural healing process sweeps away older, damaged tissue and rebuilds it with fresh, new collagen and elastin—the crucial building blocks of youthful looking skin.
How many treatment sessions will it take to wrinkles?
A series of 3-4 treatments is recommended. Treatment intervals are 2-4 weeks but can be up to 8 weeks for darker skin types. Each patient is unique and will be evaluated prior to treatment.
Pre and Post Care
No sun exposure, tanning beds and sunless tanning cream for 4 weeks prior to treatment. Sun exposure decreases the effectiveness of the laser treatment and can increase the chance of posttreatment complications.
Use a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher. Apply to the treated area every 2 hours when exposed to the sun and it is recommended to make this a part of your skin care routine.
Remove all makeup, creams or oils prior to treatment.
Cleanse the treated area at least daily with water and mild soap, and then pat the area dry.
Do not rub or scratch the treated area.
If crusting/scabbing occurs, do not shave or pick area. Apply Aquaphor ointment (tattoo) or other moisturizer (face) to the area 2-3 times a day. Keep the area moist, and let the crusting/scabbing resolve on its own.
Discomfort may be relieved by cold gel packs and/or an over the counter pain reliever, such as acetaminophen.
Avoid contact sports or any other activity that could cause injury of the treated area.
Avoid swimming, soaking or using hot tubs/whirlpools until the skin heals.
Contact physician if there is any indication of infection (redness, tenderness or pus).
