PicoSure: Why winter is the best time to improve the look of your skin

Cynosure Skin Revitalization

The transition from summer to winter can have a dramatic effect on the way our skin looks and feels. During these colder months, our skin becomes vulnerable to the damaging and drying impacts of the cold, windy weather, and the low humidity of indoor heating. These harsh changes make it all the more important that you take extra care of your skin during the winter months.

During the winter, our skin produces less oil, leaving us more susceptible to abnormal dryness. While we attempt to stay warm with long, hot showers and internal heating, this takes the moisture from our bodies, leaving us with dry, itchy cracked skin. This tends to become a bigger problem as we age, as we begin to lose oil-producing sebaceous glands and our skin becomes less able to hold its moisture.

While winter may be the toughest season on your skin, it is also the best time to invest in laser treatments to revitalise your skin.

Are your skin issues triggered by winter weather? Laser treatments, such as PicoSure, are the ideal way to attain youthful, glowing skin all winter long.

So why is winter the best time to improve the look of your skin?

Laser treatments may make your skin more sensitive to the sun, therefore it is important to avoid excessive sun exposure before and after treatment. Receiving your PicoSure treatments during the winter when you’re already spending more time covered up inside means that you can better protect your skin.

Similarly, it is important to avoid sweating following a laser skin treatment. This can be hard to evade during the hot Australian summers, yet we are much less likely to be sweating from the heat in the winter months.

Undergoing skin treatments can be an inconvenience during the warmer months, as the before and after care can disrupt our summer fun. However, treating your skin to some TLC during the winter is sure to boost your confidence, plus will ensure a glowing summer complexion once the warmer season rolls back around.

How can PicoSure treat your skin?

This winter, consider rejuvenating your skin with a PicoSure treatment. PicoSure is the first and only aesthetic picosecond laser for the safe and effective removal of benign pigmented lesions, as well as acne scars, wrinkles, and skin revitalisation treatments. PicoSure will non-invasively stimulate your skin’s natural production of collagen and elastin to promote visibly younger skin in as little as a single treatment*.

Unlike other laser treatments, PicoSure offers impressive results, fewer treatments, and minimal downtime. PicoSure works to activate the body’s natural skin cell process to promote healthy and more youthful-looking skin.

Furthermore, PicoSure is an extraordinarily convenient procedure, requiring no special preparation and generally taking only 10 – 15 minutes to complete. Being such a fast and gentle treatment, PicoSure is an easy addition to your skin care regimen that will achieve real improvements.

PicoSure can address a number of skin concerns, including:


As we age, our skin begins to change. These changes in the skin are amongst the most visible signs of ageing and can include fine lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, pigmentation, and uneven skin texture. PicoSure treats these common signs of ageing by boosting collagen and elastin for a smooth, radiant, and refined complexion.


Pigmentation refers to discoloration on the skin that is darker than your natural skin pigment, and can be caused by a number of factors, including sun exposure, hormonal changes and ageing. However, with PicoSure skin pigmentation treatments, you will no longer need to be insecure about your skin. Working to promote cell turnover and skin renewal, PicoSure will leave you with a beautiful and even toned complexion.

Acne Scarring

Most of us have had to deal with acne breakouts during our adolescent years. However, even when the breakouts stop, we are often left with stubborn scarring on the skin’s surface. PicoSure treatments penetrate the surface of the skin to target those acne scars and damaged skin tissue, encouraging the body’s natural healing process to rebuild with new collagen and elastin, helping you to achieve a clear and revitalised complexion.
