Park Avenue Laser Treatment center is proud to announce that Dr. Johanna S. Youner, one of New York City’s leading laser focused physicians, is a specialist in PICOSURE™ Laser Treatments.
What is PICOSURE™ Skin Resurfacing and Rejuvenation?
PICOSURE™ laser skin resurfacing addresses skin disorders and imperfections caused by aging and sun exposure, such as acne scars, brown spots, pigmented lesions, sun damage, freckles, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles. Laser skin and facial rejuvenation is a non-invasive med-aesthetic treatment designed to remove skin blemishes and stimulate increased production of collagen which works to improve overall appearance of the skin. PICOSURE™ laser can be effective for many different types of blemishes on any skin type. PICOSURE™ technology helps you achieve clearer, brighter and younger looking skin.
How Does It Work?
PICOSURE™ offers gentle treatment. In the past, lasers have relied on intense heat energy to remove pigment from the skin, which could be painful and lead to significant skin redness and downtime. PICOSURE™ is different. The reason is because of its speed or should we say “pico-speed”?
PICOSURE™ laser rejuvenation is one million times faster than any of its predecessors. This is an important factor because the incredible speed allows PICOSURE™ light energy to penetrate the skin’s deeper layers. The light energy is delivered in short, fast bursts. With PICOSURE™ laser, only the underlying problems are treated, leaving the skin’s surface intact.
This type of laser not only results in a clearer, brighter skin, but it does it with virtually no down time. Patients may experience some minor irritation and redness for a few hours after treatment and are able to immediately return to their normal activities. Many patients receive their PICOSURE™ treatments on their lunch hour and then return to work.

PICOSURE™ laser resolves skin imperfections caused by aging and sun exposure, such as acne scars, brown spots, pigmented lesions, sun damage, freckles, stretch marks, fine lines and wrinkles.
