Following on from our coverage that the PicoSure FOCUS Lens Array for the treatment of acne scars has been approved by the FDA, it is now also FDA approved for the treatment of wrinkles, which means that PicoSure is the first FDA approved product for the treatment of both acne scars and wrinkles which will see greater competition and innovation in the market.

New results from PicoSure clinical studies show a dramatic improvement in pigment and wrinkles:

  • Patient satisfaction was 84% at the first month follow up visit;
  • Patient satisfaction was up 10%, at 92% at the fourth month follow up visit.

“This clearance complements our recently received approval to market PicoSure for the treatment of acne scars, and demonstrates the breadth of our FOCUS lens array technology to address additional high-volume indications,” said Cynosure Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Michael Davin. “According to the independent industry research and analysis firm Medical Insight, worldwide sales for skin rejuvenation platforms are projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 8.2 percent through 2018 to $512.6 million. We believe this large addressable market represents a significant growth opportunity for Cynosure and provides another avenue to drive our disposables revenue.”

Why is FDA approval a big deal for fine line and wrinkle treatments in the UK?

FDA approval is a big deal because a beauty treatment product that’s able to treat a number of medical conditions can cut treatment times dramatically for patients and offer a wider range of solutions. The fact that PicoSure is now FDA approved for the treatment of wrinkles also means that patients will have more reassurance than ever that an Andrea Catton treatment plan with PicoSure will yield noticeable results when applied to wrinkle treatment.

Cynosure PicoSure is now an award-winning product, too!

If that wasn’t enough, PicoSure recently won an award at the MyFaceMyBody Awards for best anti-ageing treatment. The prestigious MyFaceMyBody Awards are an annual awards ceremony that reward a wide range of products for excellence and innovation. Cynosure PicoSure was entered into the best anti-ageing treatment category and won. It faced stiff competition, but it won thanks to its innovative technology and proven practice results.

PicoSure has been shown to dramatically reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in clinical trials and in real-world practice. It’s a safe and gentle treatment that we at Andrea Catton back wholeheartedly and it’s the treatment we recommend for safe and quick results.

“PicoSure is the first laser of its kind to use picosecond pulses to gently enable changes within the dermis,” says Dr. David H. McDaniel, Director of The Institute of Anti-Aging Research. “It is a safe, gentle, and effective treatment option with no downtime.”

“Pulses from the PicoSure laser can actually lead to new collagen and elastic production when focused through special lens arrays,” notes Dr. Robert Weiss of Maryland Laser Skin & Vein Institute, and adding, “An additional benefit is that pigmentation of the skin is also greatly improved which typically is not achieved by injectables such as toxins or dermal fillers alone.”
