Additional Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedures
PICOSECOND LASER (PiQo)
What is a PiQo laser?
A PiQo laser is commonly used for tattoo removal as well as for correction of hyperpigmentation (areas of abnormally darkened skin). With the fractionated settings, the PiQo laser can also be used to smooth wrinkles, as well as to minimize the appearance of stretch marks, acne scars, and more. It uses ultra-short (nanosecond and picosecond) pulses that break apart ink particles with high pressure.
How long is the procedure?
The procedure takes about 10-15 minutes per session, depending on the size of the area being treated. Multiple sessions are necessary for the best overall result. The ultimate number of treatment sessions recommended will be determined at the time of your consult, as this depends upon your skin type, what we are using the laser to treat, as well as what area of the body is being treated. Laser sessions are optimally spaced 2-3 weeks apart for the treatment of melasma/hyperpigmentation and 4-6 weeks apart for tattoo removal, stretch mark treatment, and wrinkle smoothing.
PHOTODYNAMIC THERAPY (PDT)
What is PDT?
Photodynamic therapy (PDT) is a treatment that uses a topical photosensitizing agent (aminolevulinic acid/ALA) which is activated by light from a laser to destroy target cells. ALA is a naturally occurring substance in the body which, when applied topically, is selectively absorbed into damaged skin cells, hair follicles, actinic keratoses lesions (AKs), and sebaceous (oil) glands.
How does it work?
Levulan (photosensitizing agent) is applied to the target areas, allowed adequate time to absorb into the skin, and is then activated by specific wavelengths of light.
What are the benefits?
PDT is a great option to treat sun damage, acne/acne scarring, rosacea, age spots, and actinic keratoses for more rejuvenated skin. Benefits include improvement in skin texture and tone, smaller pore size, improvement in the appearance and reduction of rosacea, acne, and sebaceous gland hyperplasia (overgrown oil glands). PDT also decreases the overall oiliness of skin. The side effects are minimal with relatively a quick recovery time. PDT has also been effective in treating certain early skin cancers.
What to expect after treatment?
Expect redness and peeling for 2-7 days post-treatment. Pigmented lesions will appear darker at first but eventually peel off. Some swelling may also occur. It is important to avoid all sunlight for 36 hours following the treatment.
