PicoSure® Is FDA-Cleared For Treatment Of Fine Lines And Wrinkles
Cynosure® recently announced that PicoSure®, the world's most advanced laser technology for tattoo removal, benign pigmented lesions and acne scars, is now FDA-cleared for the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles. New results from PicoSure clinical studies show a dramatic improvement in pigment and wrinkles:
- Patient satisfaction was 84% at the first month follow up visit
- Patient satisfaction was up 10%, at 92% at the fourth month follow up visit
According to the 2014 ASDS Consumer Survey on Cosmetic Dermatologic Procedures, a majority of the population is somewhat to extremely bothered by fine lines and wrinkles in the forehead area (56%), around and under the eye (71%), and mid-face around the cheeks and mouth (65%). Fillers and Botulinium Toxin have played a large role in the cosmetic treatment of wrinkles, but more people (45% of consumers) are starting to count ultrasound, laser, light, and radiofrequency treatments for skin tightening or wrinkles as one of the top cosmetic procedures they're considering.
"PicoSure is the first laser of its kind to use picosecond pulses to gently enable changes within the dermis. It is a safe, gentle, and effective treatment option with no downtime."
Dr. David H. McDaniel: Director - The Institute of Anti-Aging Research
"Pulses from the PicoSure laser can actually lead to new collagen and elastic production when focused through special lens arrays. An additional benefit is that pigmentation of the skin is also greatly improved which typically is not achieved by injectables such as toxins or dermal fillers alone."
