Ageing is inevitable. but according to Neo-Aesthetics Skin and Laser Clinic director, Dr Catherine Segarra, you need two things to successfully slow its progress – commitment and science.

Dr Segarra and the team of qualified nurses and medical practitioners at Neo-Aesthetics have both. With a desire to promote skin health, the clinic is skilled in non-invasive, cutting-edge technology to assist skin rejuvenation.

As one of the first to introduce the PicoSure Pro Laser in South Australia, the bespoke clinic talks about its signature treatment, how it works and, importantly, the results.




Surefire Success

An advanced and revolutionary cosmetic procedure that has gained popularity for its effectiveness in skin rejuvenation. PicoSure Pro helps reduce acne scarring, pigmentation and even remove tattoos.

Developed by Cynosure, a leading medical device company, the PicoSure Pro Laser uses picosecond technology to deliver precise and powerful laser pulses in trillionths of a second, making it one

of the fastest and most efficient lasers in the industry.

The laser’s precision and speed minimise damage to surrounding tissue, resulting in less discomfort and downtime for patients. The treatment also stimulates collagen production, improving skin texture and tone. One of the standout features of the PicoSure Pro is its minimal downtime. Patients can typically return to their normal activities shortly after the procedure with downtime ranging from four to 48 hours. The result? Glowing skin in a couple of days – and skin just keeps getting better during the month post treatment.


How It Compares

Not all laser and light therapies are safe for all skin tones; PicoSure Pro is versatile and inclusive. While suited to all skin types, the groundbreaking treatment is designed specifically for people with darker skin, including Asian and ethnic skin.

PicoSure Pro also allows discolourations to be treated more aggressively, without having to worry about unwanted side effects such as burning, scarring or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
