PICO Laser Pigmentation Treatment
PICO is a treatment that can remove tattoos and pigmentation effectively and safely. This unprecedented treatment is popular in Europe and the United States. From then on, the global medical aesthetics market has entered a new page of picosecond therapy.
Picosecond vs. Nanosecond Technology
Traditional nanosecond lasers predominately rely on photothermal action, delivering heat to the pigment and surrounding tissue. Pico takes advantage of PressureWave Technology to shatter the target ink into tiny particles that are easily eliminated by the body.
PICO’s PressureWave™ technology uses a unique wavelength of light (755nm) and a specialized lens to convert laser energy into gentle pressure. This pressure squeezes cells, activating the natural cell signaling processes that create new collagen and elastin without burning or damaging the skin.
PICO can produce laser-induced optical breakdowns (LIOBs) by redistributing and concentrating laser light through a unique patented FOCUS Lens Array. The laser-induced optical breakdowns (LIOBs) will create a shock-wave to enhance cell proliferation and repair mechanisms, stimulate collagen and elastin hyperplasia in the dermis layer. The dAs a result, the dermis layer could be thickened from inside to outside, thereby improving skin condition, reducing the pores, smoothing fine lines, and improving scars. Most importantly, there are no wounds created after treatments but only with very short downtime.
The Focus Lens Array delivers 20x the energy density of a normal PICO pulse to begin activating cell signaling.
Intra-epidermal Laser-Induced Optical Breakdowns (LIOBs) form and cause pressure waves to propagate into the dermis, triggering pressure injuries to activate cells.
Cell signaling initiates an enhanced inflammatory healing response that leads to increased collagen and elastin and ultimately revitalizes skin.
PICO’s unique energy delivery is a breakthrough for patients seeking a way to improve their skin and reduce signs of aging but doesn’t want to deal with the risks, pain, and downtime of traditional laser treatments. PICO gently disrupts the particles responsible for a range of pigment conditions like freckles, sunspots, and other discoloration using highly targeted energy.
The laser corrects skin blemishes and imperfections without the use of dermal fillers or harsher laser treatments. The results will vary based on each patient’s unique needs and beauty goals, but the procedure has been proven effective in reducing the appearance of:
