Revitalize Your Skin with the Pico Technology Laser
Many of our patients are looking for a safe and effective treatment to remove tattoos, pigmentation issues, and blemishes, or simply revitalize their skin with as little discomfort and recovery time as possible. To meet these needs, we are proud to offer non-invasive treatment using revolutionary Pico Technology laser with Enlighten by Cutera at our New Orleans area practice. This gentle laser technology is most widely known for how efficiently it can remove tattoos, but Pico technology is also the preferred treatment for a range of cosmetic issues. The Pico second laser's patented technology has been shown effective at removing tattoos, acne scars, birthmarks, and benign skin lesions more effectively and in less time than other treatment options. To learn more about how you can benefit from this advanced technology, please contact our office to schedule an appointment with Dr. Benjamin Boudreaux and Dr. Jeffrey Claiborne.
The Pico Technology Laser System
Most laser systems rely on intense heat energy to remove tattoos or pigment from the skin. This can be extremely painful, require many treatments, and entail significant recovery time. The Pico Technology laser system features ultra-short pulses of energy lasting just trillionths of a second. This duration - 100 times shorter than nanosecond technology - creates more pressure, which creates a very gentle sensation while at the same time providing more effective treatment.
The Pico Technology laser system is often recommended to treat a variety of pigmented lesions and acne scars. To combat these skin concerns, the Pico Technology laser works by deeply penetrating the skin and promoting collagen and elastin growth. This reaction also stimulates a healing response and softens the appearance of stretch marks, fine lines, and wrinkles. In this way, the Pico Technology laser system can remove many of the common signs of aging for an overall rejuvenated and younger-looking appearance. By stimulating a natural healing response, treatment offers a significant advantage over other anti-aging techniques that use chemicals or toxins which can result in undesirable side effects.
Pico Technology Tattoo Removal
During laser tattoo removal, the pico second technology, combined with traditional nanosecond technology, creates ultra-short pulses of energy to smash apart the pigmented ink into tiny particles, which are then absorbed and eliminated by the body. The pico second system can be calibrated to specific wavelengths, precisely targeting each unique color within a tattoo.
Although all removal procedures will likely require multiple treatment sessions, patients who have undergone Pico second laser therapy routinely require fewer visits to achieve their desired results. And thanks to the smaller pulses of energy employed by the pico second laser, the procedure is also more comfortable than other tattoo removal techniques. Some patients have compared the sensation to no more than the snap of a rubber band on the skin, and anesthetics can be applied to ensure your complete comfort. Overall, by using the pico second laser, we are able to achieve better patient outcomes than other methods of tattoo removal.
