To revitalize and refresh the skin, we offer PicoSure laser facial treatments to gently address a variety of skin concerns, including freckles, sun and age spots, uneven skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, and more.

What is PicoSure?

PicoSure is the first picosecond laser developed for aesthetic use. A picosecond laser provides patients with the benefit of a shorter pulse duration, meaning it operates at speeds which are measured in trillionths of a second. The shorter pulse duration means the laser energy is in the form of pressure or pulsed shock waves that generate little-to-no heat.

This results in the erasure of skin pigmentation concerns of all types, without downtime. Additionally, the PicoSure treatment triggers the production of collagen, which restructures and build new, firmer, more glowing skin.

What skin concerns does PicoSure address?

PicoSure treatments are ideal to address pigmentation concerns and other skin imperfections. With its rapid energy delivery system that destroys unwanted pigment and revitalizes the skin with a fresh, renewed surface, PicoSure can effectively address the following:

  • Age spots
  • Sun damage
  • Freckles
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Dull, tired skin tone
  • Acne scarring
  • Rosacea
  • Moles
  • Birthmarks

Who is a candidate for PicoSure laser treatments?

The PicoSure laser treats all skin types, textures and tones. Ideal candidates are men and women who would like to address skin imperfections or pigmentation concerns, and meet the following requirements:

  • Are in good health
  • Have not recently tanned in the sun or a tanning bed
  • Have realistic expectations about what this treatment can achieve


There is no downtime after PicoSure treatments. You may experience slight redness and minor swelling once the treatment is complete. However, this will last for only a few hours. If there is any discomfort, a cooling cream may be applied.

After your treatment, be gentle and care for your skin with these tips:

  • Use soft materials only on the skin
  • Do not touch or pick at the treated area
  • Stay out of the sun, and use sunscreen daily
  • Avoid chlorinated water for 1-2 days

  • Lightens and reduces pigment lesions
  • Stimulates natural collagen and elastin for continuing, long-term results
  • Reduces or erases freckles, sunspots and other concerns
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Provides vitalized, smoother, healthier skin
  • Reduces visible or pitted acne scars

Dear Patients,

It is with great pleasure that I announce the reopening of my practice for both surgical and non-surgical services on May 1, 2020. As per the governor Ducey's executive order on April 22, 2020, elective surgery has been allowed to proceed, with appropriate precautions taken by health care professionals to ensure continued vigilance against the spread of Covid-19.

Our office staff and the staff of Paradise Valley Cosmetic Surgery Center and Surgical Recovery Center have proactively taken necessary precautions to meet strict criterion for health providers according to the state of Arizona. These include necessary patient screening for Covid-19, strict protocols for cleaning offices and treatment rooms, adequate PPE, and continued social distancing. As before, waiting areas will have minimal capacity, and friends and family members should not accompany one into offices or treatment areas.

With great anticipation we welcome you back to the practice, and wish you all continued health and safety.

Sincerely, Daniel Shapiro MD, FACS
