Skin Imperfections Q & A

La Jolla Laser MedSpa

How are skin imperfections treated?

At La Jolla Laser MedSpa, the team of skin care professionals uses the innovative PicoSureⓇ aesthetic laser system. This unique laser system works in two ways. First, the PicoSure delivers intense laser energy into your skin imperfections, where it travels so rapidly, when it impacts certain cells, such as those that contain pigmentation, it causes them to fracture or shatter. Once this happens, your body naturally processes these fragmented pieces and removes them.

What’s more, the PicoSure employs cutting-edge cellular technology to stimulate your body’s healing response. Using a specific wavelength of energy and converting it with a special lens, this energy creates pressure on your skin cells by gently squeezing them.

This squeeze triggers your cells to send an “injury” signal to other cells, which in turn ignites a natural restorative effect. Cells send growth factors, including the skin-strengthening proteins collagen and elastin, to the area, restoring your skin and creating a revitalizing effect.

What kinds of skin imperfections can you treat?

The team at La Jolla Laser MedSpa address a multitude of skin imperfections with the PicoSure laser system. This state-of-the-art equipment reduces the appearance of:

  • Dark pigmentation, including age spots, sun spots, and sun damage
  • Fine lines and wrinkles due to aging and UV exposure
  • Acne scars, including bumps and pits

The PicoSure also improves the texture and tone of your skin, giving you a total skin rejuvenation. This easy and non-ablative treatment brings you a more youthful and glowing complexion that will have everyone asking you about your skin care secret.

What happens during a PicoSure treatment?

There’s no specific preparation for a PicoSure laser treatment. If you’re concerned about any pain during the procedure, your doctor can apply a numbing agent to minimize discomfort. Most patients at the San Diego MedSpa office report that the procedure feels like a rubber band snapping on your skin.

Your doctor moves the handheld PicoSure device across your treatment area, where it’s delivered deep into your skin. The entire process takes 10-15 minutes.

After your treatment, you need no downtime and have no activity restrictions. Your skin may appear red and feel like it has a minor sunburn. In one to three hours, these symptoms fade.
