What makes the PicoSure Focus Lens Array so special?

Unlike traditional lasers that use photothermal action (heat), PicoSure's ultra-short pulse create an intense photomechanical impact (known as PressureWaveTM). This creates shockwaves in the dermis which induces the production of new crisp collagen and elastin with no damage to the skin.

The Focus Lens Array treatment is quick and gentle, with only 10% of the skin being treated at the high energy Picosecond focus level during each pulse. The remaining 90% of surrounding tissue is treated with a lower energy level for a gentler background effect. This allows a deeper penetration to the dermis area under the skin, promoting new collagen and elastin growth while also stimulating a non-traumatic tissue healing response (which also has the effect of softening the tissue from acne scars and stretch marks).

 

What does this all mean for you? - Younger looking skin in just minutes!


Why choose PicoSure Focus Lens Array over other skin rejuvenation treatments?

The award-winning Focus Lens Array has the following benefits:
  • Treats uneven skin tones, fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentations, freckles, sun damaged skin, acne scare and stretch marks
  • Quicker results-visible after just 1 treatment
  • Minimal down time - skin only appears red for a few hours
  • No side effects associated with surgical face lifts
  • Much quicker treatments, usually between 10 and 30 minutes depending on the size of the area
  • Less treatments required
  • FDA approved

For best results, we typically recommend a series of 3-5 treatments 2-4 weeks apart. The PicoSure Focus Lens Array is safe for all skin types and can be used on the hands, legs, arms, chest, face and neck.

The newest advancement in the field of fractional laser skin revitalization is Picosecond Laser Facial Revitalization (PLFR), in which the revolutionary PicoSure laser (the world’s first picosecond laser) is used. A picosecond is a trillionth of a second and refers to the time span of the laser pulse. Laser energy delivered in an ultra-short (picosecond range) energy pulse produces an unprecedented effect on the skin, which results in removal of excessive skin pigmentation as well as stimulation of new collagen production. The most remarkable advantage of PLFR is the non-thermal effect (no significant heat) on the skin, which results in a truly no-downtime, ultra-gentle treatment. Unlike the Fraxel and other fractional laser treatments, there is no need for anesthesia prior to PLFR treatment. After PLFR treatment there is mild redness for less than one hour and no significant swelling.

The revitalization effects of PLFR treatments are impressive. Age spots are lightened, wrinkles are smoothed and skin texture is improved. Even acne scars are improved after a series of PLFR treatments.

WHAT DOES IT DO?

The PicoSure Laser combined with the Focus Lens array is quick, gentle and effective for penetrating the dermis area under
the skin to promote new collagen and elastin growth while also stimulating a non-traumatic tissue healing response (which
also has the effect of softening the tissue from acne scars and stretch marks). With only 10% of the skin being treated at the
high energy Picosecond focus level during each pulse, the remaining 90% of surrounding tissue is treated with a
lower-fluency for a gentler background effect.

WRINKLES

Wrinkles naturally appear over time as we get older but can also become more apparent due to sun damage, smoking,
dehydration, environmental and genetic factors. However, thanks to some great breakthroughs in medical technology, it's
easier and more convenient than ever to significantly minimize those wrinkles.
At Advanced Laser Aesthetics, we use PicoSure’s advanced technology to treat wrinkles precisely, efficiently, and
painlessly. This wrinkle treatment uses an advanced laser delivery system to target wrinkles and lines that can make you
look older than you feel. We are the leading provider of PicoSure wrinkle treatment in the Chicagoland area.

 

SKIN REVITALIZATION VS SKIN REJUVENATION

The PicoSure Laser combined with the Focus Lens Array is a faster and more convenient treatment process than skin
rejuvenation because:
  • It can be used to treat uneven skin tones, fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentations, freckles, sun damaged skin, acne
    scars and stretch marks.
  • Offers quicker, visible results after just 1 treatment
  • Has minimal down time (Redness only lasts for a few hours post treatment)
  • There are no side effects compared to skin rejuvenation and surgical treatments
  • Requires less treatments
  • FDA approved

For best results, we typically recommend a series of 3-5 treatments 2-4 weeks apart. The PicoSure Focus Lens Array
is safe for all skin types and can be used on the hands, legs, arms, chest, face and neck.
