Still unsure about laser treatment to improve your skin’s appearance? You can be sure with PicoSure. And this friendly patient-focused medical practice is the only one in Contra Costa County that has one. 

Unlike other lasers, PicoSure gets results faster and with less heat. That means less damage to skin cells. So there’s little or no recovery time.
While most lasers zap in nanoseconds (one billionth of a second), PicoSure uses picoseconds (one trillionth of a second). This faster time reduces the amount of heat delivered – less heat means less healing needed after treatment. You’re a little red for a few hours – like you sat in the sun a little too long during your lunch break. The mild redness soon disappears and you’re left with youthful glowing skin with visibly reduced lines and wrinkles. 

I’ve never ever before had laser treatment on my skin. I had heard how expensive fraxel and other laser treatments are and how they leave your face looking like a blistered pizza for days. No thanks. Reading about the PicoSure’s light touch gave me the courage to try it and Dr. Parish’s kindness, expertise and caring assured me that I was in good hands. You only have one face – why trust it to an amateur when you can go to a licensed M.D. for truly expert care at a lower cost?
