What Is PicoWay?
PicoWay is a laser system that was originally developed to remove tattoos. It consists of several handheld devices that use ultrashort pulses of laser light. While other laser systems rely on heat, the ultrashort pulses create a photoacoustic effect that does not overheat the skin.
To reduce wrinkles, the laser system triggers the body’s self-healing process to begin rejuvenating the skin. It stimulates the growth of new collagen and elastin. The skin increases in volume, which helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles even further. The top layer of skin is not harmed in the process.
Acne and Blemish Removal
The PicoWay laser system was designed to remove tattoos by dissolving pigment particles. It works the same way for blemishes by targeting the darker spots on the face and breaking down the melanin. The tiny particles are then absorbed by the body.
Is There Any Recovery Time?
The PicoWay process targets only tiny areas of the skin, leaving healthy tissue intact. This means there is little to no recovery time following the treatment.
Depending on the condition of the skin and other factors, you may need a series of treatment sessions to achieve the best results. Results vary from patient to patient, but most individuals see gradual improvements with each treatment session.
PicoWay has been cleared by the FDA and is considered safe. Any side effects tend to be minor.
PicoWay works for people with various skin types. You may be an ideal candidate if you have concerns about dark spots or blemishes like wrinkles and acne scars. Your candidacy for the treatment can ultimately be determined during a consultation.
Those who are looking for a way to get rid of wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and blemishes now have a great option. PicoWay is safe, quick, and effective, and it may be just what you’ve been looking for to achieve your goals for your skin.
