What is it?

The Fotona FracPICO is a non-ablative dual-wavelength Picosecond laser treatment that stimulates collagen production without heat.
This is the latest development in Skin Rejuvenation treatments which uses the fractional focused lenses FS50 and FS20 of the Fotona FracPICO to deliver 532nm and 1064nm picosecond laser focused beams to multiple depths of the skin to stimulate collagen production.

What can it be used for?

  • Wrinkles
  • Scars and Pores
  • Tattoos

How does it work?

These ultra-short picosecond laser beams do not cause heating up of the skin, unlike traditional HIFU (high-intensity focused ultrasound), RF (radio-frequency) treatments or CO2 or Erbium-Yag laser treatments.

Instead, it relies on focusing the photo-acoustic effects of the Picosecond pulse duration into a nano-zone, resulting in an explosive skin reaction that lifts the skin, resurfacing scars and tattoos.

For tattoo removal, the innovative FracPICO treatment creates nano-size holes in the skin over the tattoo area prior to the main laser procedure. This pre-treatment “priming” pass enables steam, gasses and ink particles to more easily escape through the skin during the subsequent full-beam Picolaser pass, thus avoiding the ‘frosting’ effect. This allows for a very short waiting time between multiple passes, which can reduce the typical number of treatment sessions by more than half.

There is minimal skin damage, which means low risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and short recovery time.

30 mins treatment with results that last for up to 3 months.

Why the FracPICO?

For scars, the bubble lifting effect of Fractional picosecond lasers is rapidly gaining reputation as a new dimension of acne scar treatment. It is more effective than previous fractional lasers – and with LESS downtime.

For tattoos, it is normal to see conventional laser treatments fail to clear tattoos completely. Conventional laser treatments also frequently result in scarring in the tattoo area because of the tattoo by-products trapped and lodged under the skin from incomplete removal.

The FracPICO advantage is FEWER SESSIONS needed, with FEWER SIDE EFFECTS.

FAQs

This combination resurfacing is ideal for patients with skin laxity, facial sagging and scarring.

  • Swelling
  • Infection
  • Prolonged erythema
  • Contact dermatitis
  • You may gently apply a cold pack over the area to promote better comfort.
  • Moisturise and sunblock well
  • Avoid exfoliating and use gentle cleansers during the healing phase, which could last up to 2 weeks.

With a specially engineered technique, this usually slightly painful treatment can be made completely painless!

This treatment can create a range of downtime periods, from mild to aggressive possibilities. Even at the aggressive setting, the laser heals quickly over a weekend period because of the tiny nano-sized fractionated laser beams.

This combination resurfacing is well tolerated by most patients. Shaving or the application of mineral make-up can be done soon after treatment. In most cases, patients can already return to work directly after treatment or the next day, depending on their skin condition and treatment. Some of the side effects that may occur after aggressive fractional laser treatments include:

  • Excessive scaling, peeling or crusting
  • Swelling
  • Post-inflammatory pigmentation
  • Contact dermatitis
  • Acneiform eruptions

The total cost may vary for each patient because this will depend on the severity of each patient’s condition and the area affected. Please bear in mind that we customize our approach for each patient, which means that the components of your combination treatment may not necessarily be the same as the next person’s treatment. We suggest that you come in for a personal consultation with our team so our doctors can thoroughly assess your condition and map out a specific treatment plan and its corresponding quotation.
