Skin Rejuvenation FAQ
Why do wrinkles happen?
As the body ages, its natural support structure for the skin -- natural materials called collagen and elastin -- begin to weaken and dissipate. This, in turn, creates wrinkles in areas like the face, neck, chest, hands, and other areas. Wrinkles, poor skin tone, and poor skin texture can all combine to make you look old before your time, but there is a solution that can completely rejuvenate your skin. Rancho Wellness Aesthetic offers a non-invasive solution for wrinkles and overall skin rejuvenation, the PicoSure laser.
What is PicoSure?
PicoSure is a highly powerful laser that stimulates the body to make extra collagen and elastin, which allows for a dramatic reduction in wrinkles.
Where is skin rejuvenation needed?
The most popular area for skin rejuvenation is the face. This includes target areas such as:
- The eyes (the crow's feet)
- The cheeks
- The lips (the "lipstick" or "smoker" lines surrounding the lips)
- The forehead
Additionally, the PicoSure laser can rejuvenate the skin in other areas where wrinkles are a problem. This can include the neck, the hands, the arms, and the chest.
What is PicoSure skin rejuvenation like?
You'll be comfortable during the PicoSure treatment process because the Rancho Wellness Aesthetics providers offer options including topical anesthetic, local lidocaine anesthetic, and ice packs during treatment. The PicoSure laser sends small pulses of light into the dermis (the sub-layers of the skin.) The laser energy from the light pulses is converted into gentle pressure whichprompts the body to start its natural healing process, which includes sweeping away damaged or dead skin and replacing it with healthy new tissue. The new tissue has a strong base of fresh collagen and elastin, making it look much more like the skin that you had when you were youthful.
PicoSure skin rejuvenation usually takes just 25-30 minutes per treatment area, with larger areas taking a bit longer. Most patients need a total of two or three treatments scheduled four to six weeks apart for optimal results.
What is PicoSure skin rejuvenation recovery like?
One of the major advantages of using the state-of-the-art PicoSure laser for skin rejuvenation is that there's no downtime. You can go back to your daily routine right away, in fact. You may experience mild skin redness for a day or two, but this resolves quite quickly. Over the coming weeks and months, you'll see a great positive change in your skin.
