How does PICO Laser skin rejuvenation work?
Pico lasers are the world’s first and only picosecond aesthetic laser platforms for multiple aesthetic applications such as acne scar treatment, improvement of pigmented lesions , tattoo removal and wrinkle treatment. This unparalleled breakthrough in laser technology delivers ultra-fast bursts of laser energy to the skin in trillionths of a second to gently target and break down pigment without collateral damage to the surrounding skin. Your body’s lymphatic system will naturally carry away damaged pigment cells, leaving your skin looking clearer and more rejuvenated.
PICO Laser for skin rejuvenation not only improves pigmentation issues and scarring but also helps your skin look younger, too. The laser energy delivered to your skin by PICO laser gently heats the lower dermal skin layers. This gentle heating action promotes a healing in response in your skin. As a result, your skin produces more collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin give your skin its underlying structure, volume and elasticity and help it look and feel hydrated. After a Pico laser skin rejuvenation treatment, early aging features such as fine wrinkles and lines will appear smoothed and reduced, leaving you with noticeably healthier and younger looking skin.

However, as every individual skin condition differs, you may need more or fewer treatments. Treatment intervals are spaced about 4 weeks apart, but can be longer if you have a darker skin type which may heal more slowly.

Post procedural effects are generally mild and transient. The most common side effect from the PICO laser treatment is temporary redness and swelling that usually resolves within a day. Scabs may form on spot treatments for pigmentation concerns, this will typically take a week to recover.
How do I take care of my skin after treatment?
A gentle cleanser and moisturizers are advisable to keep skin clean and hydrated. You may be prescribed a topical antibiotic to minimize the risk of infections. Stay away from direct and prolonged sunlight, and protect yourself by using a sunscreen (SPF 50 and PA+++).
Avoid exfoliants, AHA/BHA and retinoids for at least one week after your procedure to avoid unwanted skin irritation.
