Not everyone is ready to undergo an invasive procedure to improve their appearance, and sometimes, a surgical operation isn’t even necessary. While there are plenty of minimally invasive treatments available and countless home remedies, there may be a better option for many people. As futuristic as they may sound, lasers are a revolutionary way to treat many skin impurities. Skin Care on 5th Ave. in Peachtree, GA, offers PicoSure® FOCUS™, a non-surgical laser skin treatment that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for patients in the greater Atlanta area to reduce wrinkles, sun spots, acne scarring, and other blemishes. It results in little to no discomfort or downtime. Meanwhile, this “lunch break” treatment is an easy fit for most busy schedules.
PicoSure technology delivers short pulses of laser light lasting one trillionth of a second (a picosecond) into the deeper layers of the skin. This helps to spur collagen and elastin production, which can increase youthful skin volume while providing a tightening effect. The picosecond laser virtually eliminates any noticeable heat, resulting in little, if any, discomfort.
Most PicoSure skin revitalization sessions focus on the face. The delicate skin of the face is constantly exposed to the elements, making it prone to sun spots and other signs of aging. PicoSure also can rejuvenate the:
Some of the many benefits that our patients in the greater Atlanta area have been able to enjoy from their treatments are:
Most men and women who have fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging they wish to treat can benefit from PicoSure. Areas of exposed skin with hyperpigmentation due to sun exposure or scarring can also benefit from this therapy. Unlike skin rejuvenation treatments of the past, PicoSure is suitable for all skin types, from fair to dark. Often, patients undergoing acne treatment with us choose to incorporate PicoSure into their plan to reduce acne scars.
The first step in getting PicoSure Focus Skin Revitalization in the greater Atlanta area is to schedule your consultation at Skin Care at 5th Ave. When you come in for this appointment, you will meet with either Dr. Galitzin himself or one of our certified and skilled laser technicians. They will evaluate your skin, listen to your goals from the treatment, and create a personalized treatment plan for you. If you agree with this plan, you can schedule your first session with our Patient Coordinator.
Your PicoSure session will take about 30 minutes to perform, depending on the extent of your treatment. While most patients do not need a topical anesthetic, we do offer a numbing medication upon request. The technician will use the handheld PicoSure device directly on your skin. The device uses ultra-short bursts of laser energy to elicit a tissue reaction in your skin which leads to a reduction of skin impurities and encourages collagen and elastin production.
Although some initial redness can occur as a result of treatment, most patients can resume their normal routine immediately following a session. Some patients may need to plan to spend the remainder of the day resting. Our team can determine whether you need to rest or take any other special measures following your treatment session.
Some patients may need up to six treatments to achieve their desired results. We may recommend separating treatment sessions by up to eight weeks, depending on your skin type. During an initial consultation, we will take note of your goals, your skin type, and other factors to help you understand the treatment timeline you can expect.
The cost of Skin Revitalization in the Atlanta area is decided on a variety of factors, including the surface area being treated and the number of sessions you will need. To find out the exact cost of your experience, please come in for a consultation so we can examine your skin and create a treatment plan just for you.
