Calgary Laser Skin Resurfacing and Scar Revision with virtually no downtime with Picosure Focus Lens Array!
Inside your cells is newer skin just waiting to get out!
Smoothing out wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars and other textural irregularities with lasers usually involves a few days of hiding behind closed doors after the treatment. The redness and swelling can be unsightly for a few days afterward, and a clear, shiny ointment must be kept on the skin to keep it moist as it exfoliates. Few would want to be seen in public during this time (unless they get a kick out of scaring small children.) This hiding out is known as downtime. It’s not stay-in-bed downtime but more like stay-at-home-and-paint-your-living-room downtime. While most people don’t mind having a few days to themselves to tackle projects or just relax, it’s not always doable for people with busy lifestyles.

How Does Picosure Skin Revitalization work?
During a Skin Revitalization treatment, fractionated columns of energy are directed beneath the surface of the skin. This initiates a healing response in the dermis leading to new collagen and elastin. The treatment can be performed on the face, neck, chest or anywhere. It works well on the hands as well. Treatments are repeated monthly gradually revealing a global improvement in overall quality of the skin.
What does it feel like?
As the laser’s energy is applied to your skin in a feathering motion, you will experience a hot snapping sensation. It is well tolerated and quite comfortable after the application of the numbing cream. After the treatment, your skin will feel like it has a sunburn but this typically resolves in less than 24 hours. Your skin may be slightly pink and some mild swelling may linger for a day or two. For most patients, this treatment has virtually no downtime.
