PicoSure’s PressureWave technology uses a unique wavelength of light (755nm) and a specialized lens to convert laser energy into gentle pressure. This pressure squeezes cells, activating the natural cell signaling processes that create new collagen and elastin without burning or damaging the skin.
The focus lens array, shown in the image on the top, delivers 20x the energy density of a normal PicoSure pulse to begin activating cell signaling.
Intra-epidermal laser-induced optical breakdowns (LIOBs), shown in the middle image, form and cause pressure waves that propagate into the dermis, triggering pressure injuries to activate cells.
Cell signaling, shown in the image on the bottom, initiates an enhanced inflammatory healing response that leads to increased collagen and elastin and ultimately revitalizes skin.
The result? Brighter, healthier, younger-looking skin—with virtually no downtime. That’s breakthrough.
