Abstract

PCI is a simple technique and, with the right tool, can thoroughly puncture any skin easily and quickly. Although a single treatment may not give the smoothing that is seen with laser resurfacing, the epidermis remains virtually normal. When the result is not sufficient, treatment can be repeated. The technique can be used on areas that are not suitable for peeling or laser resurfacing.
