Set up a consultation by calling the office or booking online to learn if laser treatments can help you.
The PicoSure laser is the only laser that incorporates two different laser light functions to help with:
The combined laser lights can remove stubborn pigments, including multicolored tattoos, that other lasers can’t. The laser also rejuvenates your skin, leaving it feeling smoother, firmer, and tighter after treatment without causing peeling or drying like other cosmetic or abrasive treatments.
The laser penetrates into the deepest layers of skin to speed up the cellular turnover in order to replace old, dull surface skin cells with young, healthy skin cells. The laser also activates collagen formation, which improves the elasticity and firmness of your skin.
Each treatment session is personalized based on your unique needs and Dr. Burger customizes the laser settings to avoid irritating your skin while still providing an effective treatment based on your goals.
Dr. Burger takes several precautions to avoid any discomfort during your laser sessions. He uses a Zimmer cooling fan to reduce any heat sensations you may feel during treatment and maintains a safe distance between the laser and your skin at all times.
Once the laser is turned on, you may notice mild warmth or tingling, though it’s not painful. Some patients even describe the treatment as comfortable or relaxing.
Your results depend on the current condition of your skin and your goals for treatment. In most cases, you’ll see an immediate improvement in the texture and elasticity of your skin after each session.* Dr. Burger may recommend a series of four to six visits, especially if you have deeper wrinkles, keloid scars, or large or very brightly colored tattoos.
Most sessions last less than 15 minutes, though larger tattoos may take longer. Follow-up sessions can be spaced four to six weeks apart. During your consultation, Dr. Burger outlines what to expect during each phase of treatment and steps you can take between visits to help your skin heal.
After each session, your skin may be sensitive to UV radiation, so wear sunscreen or cover your skin to protect it from the sun. Mild redness is possible for a couple of hours after treatment.
