The power of PICO Genesis for Melasma
PICO Genesis is a laser skin rejuvenation treatment that helps treat pigmentation and revitalizes the skin. It uses a different approach than conventional laser skin treatments by combining three highly effective wavelengths and providing them in ultra-short pulses. These intense pulses help to remodel your upper dermis to help remove unwanted freckles and age spots, improve skin tone and texture, and bring back your skin's youthful, healthy glow.
- Fine lines
- Enlarged pores
- Sun damage and brown spots
- Loose skin
- Age spots
- Pigmented lesions
Many laser treatments available today are high-intensity, relying on intense heat energy to remove the pigment from your skin. These treatments are often painful and lead to redness and downtime. PICO Genesis uses a non-thermal laser (making this safe for melasma as heat can cause adverse effects on this condition) that does not cause damage to your skin and only destroys unwanted spots. Using ultra-short pulses in wavelengths unique to PICO Genesis, the lasers remove pigment while protecting your surrounding tissue, leaving your skin radiant without the redness or swelling experienced by conventional laser skin treatments.
A PICO Genesis treatment can be performed in just 20 minutes, and patients say that it's a similar sensation to static electricity. In general, there is no downtime from a PICO Genesis™ treatment, but you may feel some slight flaking or swelling following the treatment. Treatment sessions vary depending on the patient; however, many require up to six treatments to see results spaced two weeks apart.
