Pico laser is a non-invasive, non-surgical skin resurfacing laser treatment that uses Picosecond laser technology to treat common skin imperfections such as wrinkles, enlarged pores, pigmentation, and acne scarring.
Pico laser can be used to treat the following:
HOW IT WORKS
Pico laser sends ultra-short pulses of laser energy without heat to specific problem areas of the skin on the face or body. Compared to Q-switched nanosecond lasers, Pico lasers have a shorter pulse duration of up to 100 times – what this means is each laser shot stays at the skin for a shorter period of time, resulting in:
Despite the highly intense and concentrated pulses of energy, the Pico laser will not damage the outer layer of the skin. Patients who undergo this treatment only experience mild or no discomfort throughout the duration of their treatment.
An added advantage of the Pico laser is that it can also be done in fractional mode, allowing it to be a unique fractional laser with zero heat and minimal invasiveness.
Fractional Pico laser can smooth the skin and reverse signs of ageing, and allow for superior penetration of products used after the treatment. Compared to other fractional lasers that involve heat, Pico lasers done in the fractional mode have no heat involved and allow for better healing and recovery.
While all pico lasers use picosecond technology, they are not created equal. Watch Dr Chua’s video featuring 3 popular picolaser machines to learn more about their differences and common misconceptions regarding picolaser.
