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™ LASER?
PICOSURE™ has a unique energy delivery system, which is a breakthrough for patients’ seeking a way to improve their skin and reduce signs of aging but who don’t want to deal with the risks, pain and downtime of traditional laser treatments.
HOW DOES THE PICOSURE™ LASER WORK?
Using highly targeted energy, PICOSURE™ gently disrupts the particles responsible for a range of pigment conditions like freckles, sunspots and other discoloration. But there’s more.
With the revolutionary Focus lens, PICOSURE™ harnesses the latest breakthroughs in medical science to improve wrinkles, age lines and even acne scars.
Unlike other lasers with similar results, PICOSURE™ doesn’t rely on heat to burn away and destroy skin to force the body to heal.
Instead, PICOSURE™ is designed to activate the body’s natural immune response while minimizing injury and discomfort.
Because it uses gentle pressure instead of dangerous, damaging heat there’s no need for a long, painful recovery. In fact, most patients only experience a few hours of mild redness.
LASER SKIN RESURFACING
When it comes to skincare, few lasers work as well as the PICOSURE™. Its photoacoustic technology allows it to penetrate the skin’s outer layer and treat blemishes, abrasions, and pigmentation issues of all kinds.
PICOSURE™ SKIN REVITALIZATION FACIAL
Wrinkles are by far the number one cosmetic skincare issues amongst women, and PICOSURE™ offers the perfect solution. As a result of depleted collagen and elastin, the skin loosens and loses its volume. Once the volume is gone, gaps develop below the skin’s surface, and those gaps form wrinkles. The ultra-short, laser pulses of the PICOSURE™ are able to reach the inner levels of the skin without harming the outer, and at the dermis level, stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. The collagen fills the space creating the wrinkles, while the elastin tightens and prevents the spaces from developing again. What makes this laser unique is that it is the first and only picosecond laser on the market, delivering ultra-short bursts of energy to your skin in trillionths of a second. Prices begin at $775 per treatment. Schedule your consultation.
PICOSURE™ SKIN PIGMENTATION TREATMENT
Whether you’re experiencing slight discolorations or strong hyperpigmentation all across your face, the PICOSURE™ offers the perfect solution to clearing your skin and creating a uniform color. Dark spots, such as freckles, liver spots, age spots, and all types of brown patches can appear throughout the body – mostly caused by overexposure to the sun. PICOSURE™ works by penetrating the skin’s surface and attacking each individual pigment spot – leaving patients with noticeably improved skin within only a few sessions. Depending on the size, shape, and type of discoloration, it may require a number of different sessions. The newest PICOSURE™ techniques quickly remove discoloration and rejuvenate skin as it improves skin texture. Prices begin at $700 per session. Schedule your consultation.
PICOSURE™ SKIN TIGHTENING & TONING TREATMENT
Loose skin is one of the greatest concerns and can add unsightly years to your face. The building blocks of smooth, youthful skin are elastin and collagen—with PICOSURE™ Skin Tightening & Toning Treatment, pulses of light penetrate the skin’s sub-layers, treating its aging support structure. The body’s natural healing process then rebuilds the tissue, with even texture and fewer wrinkles. The PICOSURE™ laser is an ultra-short, picosecond laser that is able to reach below the skin’s surface, down to the dermis layer and stimulate your skin’s production of collagen and elastin, the compound that gives your skin its elasticity and tightness. Prices begin at $750 per treatment. Schedule your consultation.
PICOSURE™ ACNE SCAR REMOVAL
Acne is one of the most common skincare issues among men and women, regardless of age. And research shows, that close to 40% of those who suffer from acne develop some type of scarring as a result. Acne scars generally develop as a result of lost collagen within the skin. Collagen is a natural compound of the skin that gives your skin its soft, supple feel, as well as its volume and natural glow. Without collagen skin is more susceptible to scarring. The PICOSURE™ Acne Treatment is a laser with an ultra-short, picosecond laser that is able to reach below the skin’s surface, down to the dermis and stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. PICOSURE™ is designed to activate the body’s natural immune response while minimizing injury and discomfort. Because it uses gentle pressure instead of dangerous, damaging heat there’s no need for a long, painful recovery. In fact, most patients only experience a few hours of mild redness. Prices begin at $775 per treatment. Schedule your consultation.
Dr. Johanna S. Youner looks beyond the surgical procedure to the patient as a whole, from inner self to outer beauty.
What is my downtime from this treatment?
There is no downtime with any of the PICOSURE™ Treatments. Patients may experience slight redness that typically goes away within a few hours, but in some cases, may linger up to 24 hours. Dr. Youner will take care to optimize your safety and efficacy of each treatment.
How many Picosure treatments will it take to get optimal results?
Every patient can be different. At your consultation, Dr. Youner will advise how many sessions will be needed to significantly treat your issue and achieve the optimal result. Some facial issues can be resolved in only one treatment, others may take 2-3 sessions to clear.
Do these Treatments Hurt?
PICOSURE™ laser is one of the most comfortable laser treatments. Each patient is different and has a different level of tolerance for discomfort. Dr. Youner will discuss this with you during your consultation and assure you a most comfortable session.
