Men and women of all ages can experience skin discoloration whether due to having an uneven complexion, spending a little too much time in the sun, or the natural process of aging. There are many laser treatments in today’s market that offer to reduce signs of sun damage and other cases of hyperpigmentation. Most of these options result in unwanted side effects that might increase the appearance of pigmented lesions, or even result in certain infections. Of the treatments offered, there is one that stands above the others. PICO GenesisTM uses a brand new treatment style to both reduce the sight of benign pigmented lesions and also revitalize the skin.
PICO GenesisTM is an inclusive approach that can be used for people of all skin types and tones. This method uses two highly effective wavelengths of laser energy to deliver short and fast pulses to cause an intense, yet non-thermal disruption to shatter the pigmented lesions on the skin’s surface. After this happens, the laser induced shockwave will then allow for remodeling in order to create a brighter, more uniform complexion. Patients can generally see optimal results in as little as one to two treatments with PICO GenesisTM.
Older variations of lasers that sought to treat hyperpigmentation used thermal lasers. The heat energy from these lasers has the risk of damaging surrounding tissue, rather than solely treating the desired areas. As a result, these lasers could cause redness, swelling, and itching. PICO GenesisTM, on the other hand, allows for a more focused target for the laser because it does not use thermal energy. In addition to the reduced risks to your skin, PICO GenesisTM results in considerably less downtime than other lasers. Our treatment takes approximately twenty minutes and is virtually pain-free, which allows our patients to bounce back and resume their daily activities right away.
If you suffer from hyperpigmentation and are tired of constantly getting facials or peels that don’t work, we recommend PICO GenesisTM. Feel free to schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our medical providers today to see if you would be a good fit for PICO GenesisTM.
