As we get older, our skin changes and this can have an effect on our appearance. In particular, the skin can lose its natural elasticity, as collagen production slows down. This can lead to the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
In addition, the environment can play a part in the aging process and cause sun damage to the skin.
PicoSure Focus Lens uses innovative laser technology to combat the signs of aging. Through the delivery of ultra-short pulses of energy directly to the skin, fine lines can be reduced and wrinkles can be softened.
In addition, uneven skin pigmentation can be corrected and any scars diminished. This can be achieved through the energy stimulating natural collagen production and elasticity.
Prior to receiving PicoSure Focus Lens treatment, patients will attend a consultation. This will take place with a professional in one of Esteem cosemtic clinics. The aim of this meeting is to discuss the procedure and see if this is the right treatment for the patient. In addition, you will be able to gain an idea of what results you can expect.
This treatment can target different skin conditions. This means that some patients will require more than one treatment session. It is common to receive two to three treatments of PicoSure Focus Lens.
This will be discussed thoroughly during the consultation, with the creation of a treatment plan. In addition, a top up treatment is usually recommended. This can take place around six to nine months following a course of treatments.
As a non-invasive treatment, PicoSure Focus Lens is a fast and simple procedure. The patient will wear protective eyewear and will make sure they are relaxed prior to using the laser technology. There is minimal discomfort associated with this treatment and it is well tolerated by most patients.
A skin cooling technique may be used in some cases. A typical session will last around 15 to 45 minutes. But, this will depend on the treatment area.
In addition, there is minimal downtime associated with this procedure. Some redness, swelling and irritation after treatment is common. But, this will resolve itself within a few hours of the procedure.
Patients are free to leave the clinic straight afterwards and resume normal activities immediately.
