How Does Pico Laser Work?
Beverly Wilshire’s pico lasers, PicoWay, tackle various skin problems in two ways:
Picoway’s pico laser pulses are delivered to the skin using Zoom hand-held devices. When these pico laser pulses hit the dark spots in the skin caused by accumulation of melanin, the dark pigments erupt into very small particles that will no longer be visible on the skin’s surface.
PicoWay Zoom laser pulses are ideal for removing pigmentation caused by long-term exposure to the sun, tattoos, birth spots or even medical conditions such as melasma that result in brown or gray patches on the skin.
The PicoWay Resolve method emits the same PicoWay Zoom laser pulses broken into 100 identical pulses called beamlets. Because the laser pulses are ‘finer’ and evenly spaced out now, the beamlets penetrate and vaporize tiny areas beneath the skin using a non-heating (“photoacoustic”) effect. New open spaces are now created upon the vaporization, which the skin will self-heal and repair over time by generating collagen and elastin. The result – rejuvenated and supple skin that’s free of fine lines, open pores and wrinkles.
Traditional lasers can also remove pigmentation, tattoos and wrinkles BUT in a less effective and comfortable way.
What does Pico Laser Treat?
Pico laser is the best treatment if you have these skin imperfections that have been bothering you:
- Unwanted tattoos
- Large pores
- Wrinkles and fine lines
PicoWay Zoom will address pigmentation and tattoo removal, while PicoWay Resolve will regenerate the skin to treat large pores, scars, acne and wrinkles. Of all skin conditions mentioned, those who are seeking tattoo removal will benefit the most from pico lasers as the laser pulses are especially ideal for the removal of blue and green coloured pigments, which have always been a challenge to completely remove using traditional laser treatments.
What to Expect during a Pico Laser Treatment
A pico laser treatment is a safe and non-invasive treatment, so there is nothing that you really need to do to prepare. Your first step would be to search for a licensed and experienced aesthetic treatment clinic like us at Beverly Wilshire Medical Centre that offers pico laser treatments. The doctor will assess your skin issue and determine the method as well as the optimum wavelength to treat the problem. The treatment is done by the doctor himself in the same visit. A session is so quick at an average of 15 minutes each, with no visible side effects, that you could even schedule an appointment during your lunch break.
