Cynosure® PicoSure® Laser
The PicoSure laser is an extremely effective and innovative laser, which can target a variety of different skin concerns including scars, sun damage and abnormal pigmentation. The PicoSure laser can also be used to effectively remove tattoos and is very popular due to its minimal downtime and side effects.
Instead of using direct intense heat like some other laser treatments, the PicoSure laser uses ultra-short pulses, which leads to the production of waves in the dermis, gradually removing pigment and encouraging the production of collagen, which aids rejuvenation.
Cynosure® Cynergy™ Vascular Laser
The Cynergy Vascular laser is a combination of a pulsed dye laser (PDL) and an Nd:YAG laser.
PDL stands for “pulsed dye laser” and is a type of light therapy that can improve the appearance of spider veins as well as redness in the skin due to a number of conditions including rosacea and red scars. PDL gets its name from the fact that the laser beam of light is generated using a dye, whose wavelength is particularly well absorbed by haemoglobin, a substance naturally found within red blood cells/vessels.
For patients with dark skin types or those whose vascular concerns are due to larger and deeply seated vessels, a similar treatment (long pulsed Nd:YAG) is employed using the same equipment.
