PicoCare 450 treatment in Elk Grove for pigmentation removal and skin improvement

Picocare 450 Treatment from dermatologist in Elk Grove

Dermatology is changing at the speed of light – literally in the case of laser therapies. Dr. Gerald Bock and his team at California Skin & Laser Center are passionate about bringing the latest advances in laser, light, and energy-based treatments to patients in the Elk Grove, Stockton, and Lodi communities. PicoCare 450 treatment is a great example.

About PicoCare 450

This laser is cleared by the FDA for pigmentation removal and improvement in skin texture. With four wavelengths, more colors can be targeted. Highest power makes this dermatological laser ideal for shattering pigments into microscopic particles that are easily eliminated by the body’s natural processes. Treatment is safe for all skin types, with minimal risk of side effects. Chance of damage to skin is reduced because this laser breaks pigments apart with mechanical action rather than heat. Plus, short pulses of energy increase patient comfort.

Who can benefit from PicoCare 450 treatment?

The short answer is, “Nearly anyone who wants more even skin tone and texture.” In Dr. Bock’s skilled, experienced care, this treatment is ideal for improvement in:

  • Tattoo visibility.
  • Discoloration left by acne.
  • Melasma.
  • Freckles.
  • Age spots, sun spots, and other sun damage.
  • Birthmarks.
  • Flushing.
  • Acne and other surface scarring.
  • Enlarged pores.
  • Coarse skin texture.
  • Fine lines – Treatment also stimulates collagen production that thickens and tightens skin.
