Q & A
What is a facial?
Many people rely on expensive skin creams and at-home treatments to fade skin blemishes and improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, but more severe cases benefit from professional help. While spas and dermatologists offer endless amounts of types of facials that offer varying results, Altoona Laser’s PicoSure® facial treatment delivers proven skin revitalization results with minimal side effects.
Which types of skin blemishes do facials treat?
Skin blemishes can impede self-confidence in your appearance, especially blemishes on your face that can’t be concealed. However, skin blemishes are common and often caused by:
- Sun exposure
- Improper skin hygiene
- Viruses or infections
Different skin blemishes can be identified by texture, color, and location on the body. Some skin blemishes look like a growth, with a raised texture, and others are flat but discolored. The powerful PicoSure facial treatment can combat common skin blemishes, including:
- Scars from acne, pimples, or warts
Blemishes like acne or pimples might arise in adolescents but turn into scars later in life. These skin imperfections can lead to embarrassment and reduced self-confidence. However, PicoSure is able to remove blemishes so effectively that it’s difficult to tell where you once had visible scarring.
How can PicoSure treat skin blemishes?
PicoSure is a two-for-one treatment that buffs away unwanted blemishes and stimulates the production of new skin cells. The PicoSure laser first targets the outer layer of your skin, reducing the appearance of blemishes. Then, using PressureWave® technology, it stimulates your skin to produce elastin and collagen, two proteins in the skin that promote elasticity for healthy skin. PicoSure can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Each treatment only takes about 10-15 minutes. Depending on your skin condition, your PicoSure provider develops a personalized plan for your treatment. Typically, 2-5 treatments are recommended to revitalize your skin with a fresh and healthy younger glow.
PicoSure is a popular treatment because there is minimal recovery time. You may experience a little redness and swelling in the first few hours after a procedure, but otherwise, you start experiencing the benefits of younger-looking skin immediately.
