The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has recently approved Laser Technology currently utilized for tattoo removal to treat scars from acne.
Affecting more than 60 million Americans, at least 20 million suffer from the severe acne that can cause scarring. Cynosure, spearheading the way in aesthetic lasers has reported that PicoSure™ is the sole picosecond laser awarded FDA clearance to treat scarring from acne.
“We are thrilled to announce that PicoSure, the world's most advanced laser technology for tattoo removal and benign pigmented lesions, has now received FDA-clearance to treat acne scars," says Cynosure President and CEO Michael Davin.
"Our dedication to clinical research offers patients incomparable treatment options and the highest satisfaction to-date. With new treatments continuing to emerge, PicoSure's latest indication is another milestone and evidence of Cynosure's commitment to the evolution of picosecond laser technology."
Clinical Studies & Results
Clinical studies have demonstrated a tremendous improvement in the appearance of acne scars in just three treatments giving cause for celebration for people having severe acne scarring.
Clinical studies have also shown that over 75% of the patients gained more than 50% improvement in the appearance of scarring.
The PicoSure process has received a 97% acceptance rate in just a one month after-care appointment and an astounding 100% at the three month check-up stage. A 76% patient satisfaction rate at a one-month checkup appointment, increased to an 86% patient approval rate at the three-month checkup stage.
"PicoSure's PressureWave technology gently delivers ultra-short pulses of energy in trillionths of a second resulting in increased density and length of elastin fibers and increased collagen deposition," says Dr. Jeremy Brauer of Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York.
“Based on results from Cynosure's clinical study, these are very positive signs to restoring normal skin elasticity in the scar tissue and thus reducing the appearance of the scar.”
PicoSure Treatment Through InkOff.MD
The PicoSure laser uses ultra-short pulse durations in order to utilize intense photomechanical impact (PressureWave™), as opposed to heat, to displace the pigment into smaller particles. This allows INKOFF.MD to use less energy compared to Q-switch lasers, resulting in lesser treatments with a significantly higher rate of removal of the pigments with less scarring and hypopigmentation.
The PicoSure™ laser is able to remove acne scarring with greater recovery and less complications to surrounding skin because there is no heating of the skin. We are confident that you will be satisfied with the treatment results performed at our clinic.
InkOff.MD offers the most advanced techniques for tattoo removals with fascinating results.
