Before we can respond to the question What can I expect after a picosure laser treatment? You must first comprehend the basics. Picosure in Islamabad is a type of laser skin treatment that uses an intense beam of light. It targets and reduces pigmentation in the face. It is a relatively painless procedure that helps to reduce signs of ageing. This procedure helps to even out skin tone, and minimize scarring. To get ready for a Picosure facial, it is important to understand the potential risks and take the necessary precautions to minimize them. Patients should make sure to avoid direct sun exposure for at least one week before their treatment. Moreover, wear a good sunscreen and stay out of tanning beds. Additionally, it is important to avoid waxing, plucking or electrolysis at least two weeks prior to the treatment.
What is the picosure laser Treatment Like?
Each session typically takes half an hour. You’ll be given specific safety eyewear (laser/IPL) or an opaque material to protect your eyes from the intense laser light. During the Picolaser, you will feel a warm sensation on your skin as the laser energy passes through the skin. This is due to the laser’s ability to break up pigmented lesions and stimulate collagen production. Your skin care specialist will monitor your comfort level during the procedure and adjust the laser accordingly. Your skin care specialist may also apply a topical numbing cream prior to the treatment to further ensure your comfort during the procedure. The Pico laser is designed to be a comfortable and safe experience. After the laser has been adjusted, your skin care specialist will begin to treat areas on your face that require treatment.

Pico laser is a non-invasive procedure with minimal downtime and side effects. The skin may feel a little sunburned right away after the procedure. This usually subsides within 24 hours, and the full effects of the treatment will be visible in 2 to 3 weeks as collagen continues to remodel and the skin tightens. During recovery, it is important to protect the skin from sun exposure. To aid in recovery, patients should use broad-spectrum sunscreen and wear a wide-brimmed hat to protect the treated area from UV rays. Additionally, the application of a gentle moisturizer will help keep the skin hydrated and encourage the healing process. It is normal to experience some redness and swelling after treatment, as well as minor bruising at the injection sites. Over time, these symptoms should subside.
