Everything You Need To Know About A PicoFacial
A Q&A with Dr. Mulholland
Q: It looks like you really have a winner in the PicoFacial (PicoSure).
Dr.M: It’s an excellent skin rejuvenation treatment and yes, the response from our clients has been phenomenal.
Q: Why? How does the PicoFacial differ from the other laser skin rejuvenation procedures you have at your disposal?
Dr.M: It’s a different technology and, in many ways, it’s what we’ve been looking for. It’s what those of us who are involved in developing technology have been hoping to achieve. We’ve long wanted to be able to offer an excellent, non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedure with minimal discomfort, practically no down time and exceptional results. That’s what we have in the PicoFacial.

Q: What does it do? What are the results that have people so excited about it?
Dr.M: It does some of everything you want in younger looking skin. It diminishes fine and moderate lines, pores are tightened, sun damage is erased, pigment is evened out. It diminishes acne scars as well. I don’t want to over-hype it, but it really does turn the clock back a little in a wonderful way.
Q: And it’s pain-free?
Dr.M: Yes. The discomfort is truly minimal. It’s the heat in many laser treatments that causes pain and subsequent recovery time. In the PicoFacial there’s less heat and as a result less redness and inflammation. There’ll be a little redness but nothing to keep you from getting on with your day.
Q: How does it work?
Dr.M: The laser creates what we call pressure waves in the dermis. Collagen and elastin are increased as a result – that’s what creates such a natural look to the rejuvenated skin.
Q: You have a package with three treatments spaced approximately three weeks apart. Why three?
Dr.M: You’ll get a nice result with one treatment but we’ve found that with three spaced in this way the result is first rate.
Q: Anything else you want readers to know?
Dr.M: I always want people to be realistic about results. Take a look at the before and after photos carefully; they’ll show you what you can expect. But I think everyone can expect a very noticeable rejuvenation.
