What is Pico Laser Therapy?
Pico laser treatment or therapy, also known as a picosecond laser, is a revolutionary new non-invasive, non-surgical laser skin treatment that may address a range of cosmetic issues and is safe for use on many different parts of the body.
We recommend the pico laser for treating:
- Dark areas
- Sun damage
- Unwanted freckles, scars, and pigmented lesions
- Stretch marks and discolouration
- Fine lines and wrinkles
The pico laser has been shown to be safe for use on the neck, chest, legs, arms, hands, back, and behind, despite the fact that the face is the location where lasers are most frequently utilized. This indicates that a laser procedure is finally available to permanently remove unpleasant body acne scars like those on the back.
Why Are Pico Lasers So Special?
Most cosmetic lasers work by sending energy pulses deep into the skin in order to promote healing and boost collagen production. But pico laser therapy is totally different. Instead of utilizing heat to treat skin discolorations, this laser uses high energy to encourage the production of elastin and collagen. As the body produces more of these proteins, the skin gets firmer, smoother, and has a better texture overall. Because the laser emits energy in extremely brief bursts, it is named after the time unit “picosecond,” which is one trillionth of a second. Pico laser therapy is one of the gentlest laser treatments available today due to the rapidity of the energy pulses. One of the fastest, as well. If you made an appointment as you would for a mani/pedi, you could walk in and out in half the time.
One advantage of employing laser therapy without heat is that the surrounding skin is not harmed. As a consequence, your recuperation time will be greatly reduced, and you will be able to instantly wear cosmetics and spend time in the sun without worrying that it will compromise your results. The fact that the pico laser is one of the few lasers that has been shown to be secure and efficient for treating all skin kinds and skin tones makes it special as well. Darker complexion patients who have had melasma, acne, or wrinkles in the past had to choose non-laser alternatives like chemical peels or RF micro needling. Because heat only causes inflammation and worsens dark patches on the skin that is pigment-prone, earlier iterations of laser treatments would harm dark skin. Darker skin tones won’t be harmed by pico laser treatment because it penetrates the skin with energy rather than heat.
