I attended the Belo Medical Group’s launch of Picosure a few days ago at Greenbelt’s The Residences. It is always such a pleasure to see both Dr Vicki Belo and Cristalle. I love their energy. No doubt, Belo Medical Group has been the leader in revolutionizing the beauty/medical industry for 25 years. Now they just introduced Picosure, the world’s fastest laser and the biggest breakthrough in laser technology.
I love Dr Vicki Belo. She always compliments my skin when she sees me – “no pores, no spots, no makeup!” She always asks me which of her treatments I’m doing. And since I started going to Belo Medical Group in 2008, all I’ve been doing is a simple facial and Powerpeel. I used to go every two weeks (when I was still on TV). But now that I don’t have a regular show, I just go every three weeks.
Picosure was introduced to the media by Michael Byers from Cynosure the makers of the machine. Dr Belo kept teasing him that he looked like Keanu Reeves. The crowd loved it. Michael explained that Picosure is faster than the conventional nanosecond laser machines. Operating in picoseconds, Picosure uses a patented technology called Pressure Wave which utilizes light pulses instead of heat that prevents damage on the surrounding areas of the skin.
Picosure is best used for tattoo removal, acne scar treatment, removal of pigmented lesions and wrinkle treatment. This same technology makes it more effective in breaking down skin pigmentations, inducing collagen production for skin rejuvenation and improvement of acne scars. With Focus Lense, Picosure’s benefits become even more effective by concentrating light pulses through targeted areas in the face and neck. Also, tattoo is no longer permanent with Picosure. This beauty machine breaks down the stubborn pigments into sand-like property which makes it is easier to remove from the body.
“What makes this machine so wonderful is that with Picosure, it requires fewer treatments. You can also combine it with Belo’s Collagen powder drink to help the skin become more supple and firm” says Cristalle Belo Henares.
PicoSure’s ultra-short pulse duration goes beyond photothermal action creating an intense photomechanical impact, patented PressureWave™, resulting in greater disruption of the target for better clearance with fewer treatments, less fluence and without injury to the surrounding skin. Even dark, stubborn blue and green inks, as well as previously-treated, recalcitrant tattoos can be removed. Source.
PicoSure laser focuses on your problem areas whether it’s brown spots, sun damage, freckles, pigmented lesions or acne scars. PicoSure offers a gentler treatment. In the past, lasers have relied on intense heat energy to remove pigment from the skin, which may be painful and lead to significant skin redness and downtime. Source.
Traditional nanosecond lasers predominately rely on photothermal action, delivering heat to the pigment and surrounding tissue. PicoSure takes advantage of PressureWave Technology to shatter the target ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body.
