PICO Laser Treatments

Here at our practice in Lafayette and Brentwood, CA, Dr. Barbara Persons offers the PICO laser to help patients from Walnut Creek and around the San Francisco Bay Area address multiple common skin concerns, including age spots, freckles, sun damage, and acne scarring on the face, neck, and chest.

This diverse laser is designed to penetrate the skin, using light energy to target and break down discoloration and scarring on the surface of the skin, encouraging your skin’s natural healing process to rebuild collagen and reveal softer, smoother, younger-looking skin.

What Can the PICO Laser Treat?

The PICO laser is used to treat the majority of common skin concerns, including discoloration and scarring. At Persons Plastic Surgery, we use the PICO laser to treat the following skin imperfections:

  • Sun damage

The PICO laser works on all skin types to improve skin’s appearance and reduce the appearance of discoloration and scars.

PICO for Dark Spots

Whether you have discoloration from time in the sun, freckles, or age, the PICO laser is a great option for treating unwanted discoloration on the face, neck, chest, and hands. The PICO laser uses high-energy picosecond pulses of light that penetrate the deep layers of skin. This breaks the pigment into tiny particles without damaging the surrounding tissue. Your body’s natural healing process then removes the particle and generates new collagen to heal the skin and reveal brighter, refreshed skin.

PICO for Scars

Acne scars can cause you to feel self-conscious and unhappy with the appearance of your skin. They are common in men and women and exposure to sun can cause them to darken, worsening the appearance of scars over time. The PICO laser is designed to penetrate the skin and break up scar tissue and pigmentation, allowing your body to generate new skin and restore the appearance of healthy skin on your face, neck, and chest.

PICO for Skin Resurfacing

If you are bothered by the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, the PICO Laser can help turn back the clock. Dr. Persons offers laser skin resurfacing using the CO2 laser, Laser Genesis, and the PICO Laser. Each laser is designed to penetrate the skin at a different depth, depending on the severity of the skin condition.
