Contact our Devon, PA practice to schedule an appointment to learn more about this advanced therapy or whether PicoSure is the right solution to address your needs.
How Does PicoSure Work?
PicoSure uses specialized handpieces to safely deliver picosecond laser energy to the treatment area. Different handpieces can be used depending if you are targeting pigmentation conditions or general signs of aging skin. The laser will pass across the skin to address the treatment areas. Since the laser emits short bursts of energy, most patients only feel minimal discomfort. The treatment typically takes between 5 – 20 minutes. Once finished, you will be able to leave and return to your regular routine. You will begin to see results soon after the procedure and also have continued improvements with time.

I’ve been there for Laser skin treatment and for tattoo removal. I've had a couple sessions at a really great place before, so feel like I'm well equipped to share my experience. Really positive experience. Everyone was really nice and knowledgeable (mostly worked with Dr. Wang and Nelly). They also numb with injections rather than topical and it makes a huge difference!
Dr Wang and his Assistant are absolutely amazing! He is removing my tattoo and they both make the experience comfortable and painless . He answers all my questions every time ! I wouldn’t trust anyone else to laser me ! Highly recommend
Ok, so I hate admitting that I care about my aging skin. I want to be carefree about it and love all the changes happening, but I don’t. Damn you, patriarchy. And also I spent a ton of time working outside in the sun as a dogwalker in my twenties and thirties, thinking I was invincible and not wearing proper sun protection. I have regrets. That’s where Laser & Skin comes in. I was basically like I hate my face and neck area and I’m only in my early (okay pushing mid) 40s, what the heck? They did a consultation with me (shout out to Nelly for being such a rad nurse and for Dr. Jordan Wang for making me feel comfortable). He suggested I do the fraxel laser for face and neck and the pico for my abundant sun spots (and he didn’t yell at me for the sun damage, but did encourage hats and sunscreen for the future). I had both laser treatments and I am honestly both annoyed and elated to report a huge improvement in my skin. Sure, I wanted it to work, but also I’m like ok, so this is part of my yearly skin routine now I guess. They numb you up, which feels bonkers but doesn’t hurt. You just get your face slathered with a numbing cream. The laser itself isn’t the most comfortable feeling, but it’s not the worst either. You will have some downtown (they are not secretive about this and really help with lots of post treatment information. You’re gonna feel like you had a sunburn, then be a little sore, then itchy and flaky, and then, then- you are going to look f*c*ing radiant! I am dumbfounded that the giant sun spot on my nose is gone. My fine lines and wrinkles have diminished. I AM GLOWING. I’ll also add the the practice itself looks super pretty and modern and all of the staff are super nice. I am not a bougie main line type (no offense, you do you), and I still felt nothing but love from everyone there.
