Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) – PicoSure Focus Lens Array
Q: What does the Focus Lens Array do?
A: This laser is the newest treatment in the aesthetic industry for treating acne scars, wrinkles, freckles, sun spots, stretch marks and skin rejuvenation. It’s the only picosecond laser that uses 100x faster pulses with minimal-no downtime.
Q: Why should I choose the Focus Lens Array?
A: While most lasers use heat, the PicoSure uses short pulses which create photochemical impacts (pressurewave), which then forms shockwaves inside the skin to stimulate collagen without any damage.
Q: What does the treatment feel like?
A: Treatments are easy and quick, usually 30 minutes or less. Patients experience a warm sensation and slight redness over the target area; this may last up to 24 hours. There is no downtime and you can resume your regular activities right away.
Q: What are the benefits of the Focus Lens Array treatment?
A: Patients will see high success with this treatment in both texture and skin tone and also noticeable results in smoothing fine lines and wrinkles due to collagen enhancement.
Q: Is Focus Lens Array FDA approved?
A: Yes. Focus Lens Array treatments are safe for all skin types and FDA-approved.
Q: Can I use Focus Lens Array if I’m pregnant?
