As we move into a new season, your clinic may be faced with patients who are experiencing the aftermath of the summer sun, consequently experiencing unwanted pigmentation. The warm Australian climate and high UV index can be detrimental to skin health, so there’s no better time than the present for your patients to commence a PicoSure treatment program to tackle sun damage and give their skin the rejuvenation it needs.
So what exactly is pigmentation and how do my patients get it?
The most common form of pigmentation is through sun exposure and its UV rays. This can result in sunspots and freckles, dark patches and sometimes even scarring. This appears as a result of the skins natural defence against the sun. The discolouration is caused by a production of excess melanin, which results in the darkened colouring and uneven tone.
How long do my patients have to wait before they can treat their pigmentation?
A PicoSure treatment works best on patients who have avoided direct sun exposure at least 4 weeks before and after their next treatment. This also ensures your patients achieve the most effective results.
What is the best technology to treat pigmentation?
The solution is Cynosure’s PicoSure. PicoSure technology offers the world’s first, fastest and most effective picosecond laser to treat pigmentation, especially those caused by the sun.
This is achieved through PicoSure’s advanced laser and Focus Lens Array technology. This device uses high thermal picosecond pulses to target melanin, the source of unwanted pigmentation. It also allows for shorter wavelengths targeting specific problematic areas without damaging the surrounding tissue and minimising side effects.
With PicoSure, no special preparation is required and the procedure generally takes 10 – 15 minutes to complete. After treatment, most patients experience only 1-3 hours of minor swelling and redness. Patients can also use moisturisers, make-up and sunscreen right after their treatment.
PicoSure is more convenient than ever before. The fast and gentle treatment means that your patients don’t need to disrupt their busy lives to achieve real improvements.
How can my patients ensure that they get the best out of their treatment?
Our PicoSure treatments produce long lasting results. To ensure that your patients are fully satisfied we suggest continual treatments every 6 months to help prevent any further pigmentation appearing.
PicoSure also enhances the clarity of the skin by improving the texture of scarring and minimising pore size as well as the appearance of wrinkles.
