What is the PicoWay® Laser?
Scars form when an injury or surgical procedure damages the dermis or one of the deepest, thickest layers of the skin. This deep injury causes scar tissue to form over the wound that is different in texture and sometimes color than the surrounding skin. While these scars don’t pose any harm to the people that develop them, they can cause the people that have them to feel self-conscious about their appearances. With the PicoWay® laser, patients can now improve the appearance of small red scars and surgical scars with a quick, easy, and effective laser procedure. Sun Spot Removal Miami.
How does it Work?
During a scar revision treatment, the PicoWay® laser delivers short beams of concentrated light at the area of scarring. Each of these beams is aimed at the treatment are for a matter of picoseconds; each picosecond is equal to one trillionth of a regular second. While the duration of exposure to these beams of energy is short, the beams themselves are powerful enough to break the underlying structures in the skin that cause scarring using both heat and photoacoustic effects. This spurs the creation of newer, healthier cells that better help the scar blend in with the rest of the skin’s color and in most cases, fade completely.
What can I Expect from Treatment?
Because PicoWay® treatments use short, intense bursts of light, treatment times are significantly shorter than those associated with other laser-based scar revision procedures. For this same reason, patients typically experience little to no downtime following a treatment session.
