For many of us, the condition and appearance of our skin serve as a gauge for the quality of our first impressions. It makes sense that if you don’t like the way your skin appears, confidence may be a problem.
Even if you may not be happy with the way your skin looks right now, there is still hope for the future. With the use of the appropriate cosmetic procedure, such as pico laser treatment, we think all patients may achieve the flawless skin of their dreams.
How Many Pico Laser Treatments are Necessary for You?
To reach their optimum look goals, most individuals often need 3 or 4 consecutive sessions. These treatments are spaced apart by at least two to four weeks, and if you have sensitive skin or a darker complexion, sometimes even eight weeks.
Naturally, the number of treatments you require may vary depending on your unique treatment goals, so you might need more or fewer treatments than other individuals.
SMALL WRINKLES AND LINES
If fine lines and wrinkles are your main concern, you might only need two or three treatments to reduce their appearance. This is especially true if the severity of your fine lines and wrinkles is relatively modest. Additional treatments may be necessary for deeper or more dynamic wrinkles. This estimate for the number of treatments you’ll need also applies to treating skin laxity.
It may take three or four treatments to address pigmentation issues like post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, such as hyperpigmentation brought on by UV damage, dark spots, melasma, freckles, and other skin discolourations. You could require more than 4 treatments if your pigmentation issues are severe or include a greater area of skin.
Scarring includes both wound-related and acne-related scars. To decrease the visibility of scars and break down scar tissue, this acne scar removal normally only needs 4 sessions.
Tattoo removal can also be done with pico laser treatments. It should only require between 3 and 5 treatments to completely remove the tattoo, depending on the pigmentation, style, and colour of the individual tattoo.
How soon can I see outcomes?
Your skin’s inherent regeneration ability will eventually show the effects of this treatment. The majority of individuals see their first findings two to three weeks following their initial session.
Up until the time of your last treatment, or until the best results have been obtained, your results will keep getting better. You might get improvements sooner or later than other patients, though, depending on your treatment objectives.
SKIN CONDITION AND AGE
Because more effort needs to be done to reverse ageing, mature skin often takes longer to show apparent effects from treatment. This is partly because the natural regeneration qualities being promoted by this treatment take longer to manifest.
You might not see benefits for three to four weeks after your initial session, depending on your specific skin problem, including your skin type, skin tone, and the seriousness of your skin concern.
SKIN CELL REPLACEMENT CYCLE
The speed of your skin’s cell turnover cycle may also affect how soon you experience the outcomes of your treatment. Since the average skin cell turnover cycle lasts between 28 and 40 days, it can take that long for new skin cells to reach the surface of your skin.
Again, older people with mature skin have slower cycles of skin cell turnover, so it can take longer for them to see improvements.
LEVELS OF COLLAGEN AND ELASTIN CURRENTLY
The amount of collagen and elastin that is currently present in your skin may also influence how quickly you see improvements. Both the naturally occurring proteins collagen and elastin give the skin structural stability.
Again, as collagen and elastin levels decline over time, younger patients have access to more of these resources and will experience quicker results than those with more advanced skin.
