I am always interested in new treatments that make my skin look better younger. So when I heard about Picosure I was very keen to try it.
First of all it’s the only laser treatment that is great for dark skin! This is fabulous news for me! I have always wanted to try a laser treatment but haven’t been able to.
Secondly it’s supposed to take years off you. Since I’ve had kids I feel like I’ve aged 10 years so I’m hoping this will even me out!
PicoSure Focus Lens Array is the world’s most advanced laser with minimal down time and maximum results. The treatment is so quick that you could even do it in your lunch break.
PicoSure is perfect for photo rejuvenation, acne scarring, pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles. It works by delivering ultra-short pulses to the skin, stimulating the production of elastin and collagen.
So was the treatment successful for me…read on..
In the capable hands of Nurse Toby
This was my first laser treatment and I’m not going to lie, it was very uncomfortable but bearable.
The smell of burning skin was also quite off-putting but I was in the capable hands of Nurse Toby from Taylor Clinic who made me laugh all the way through it.In fact we got on so famously that we’ve decided to have a night out!
After treatment – still smiling
The whole treatment took 15mins approx. Afterwards my face was throbbing and I was given ice packs and gel to cool my skin down.
10 mins later my face felt much better and an hour later it was like it never happened. In fact I went to an event that night.
1 week on and I can really notice the difference! Ignore the difference in photo exposure, I’m not lighter! The pic on the left was taken on a Nikon and the pic on the right on an Iphone 6 in different lighting.
My skin feels tighter and as you can see it looks clearer too. The lines around my eyes and mouth are less pronounced. Also the little blemishes on my forehead and cheeks have been smoothed away. In fact I hardly need to wear make-up now. That’s after 1 treatment!
As a fan of microdermabrasion I will definitely be getting this done again. It is like having 20 microdermabrasions in one go! I think Nurse Toby and I are are going to have a very long friendship!
Would you like to try the Picosure treatment for yourself? Well the lovely team at Taylor Clinic have very kindly offered one treatment to giveaway to Mama Stylista readers valued at $980.
